Powered by Intel's Thunderbolt controller the advanced Thunderbolt 3 protocol, which is available over a USB Type-C connectors on the back I/O of the GIGABYTE X170-EXTREME ECC, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth! Support for DisplayPort 1.2 makes Thunderbolt 3 a must-have for any enthusiast. The X170-EXTREME ECC is able to support a display in 4K resolution. In addition, Thunderbolt 3 over USB Type-C has advanced features such as Power Delivery 2.0, and the ability to daisy-chain up to 6 devices thanks to the X170-EXTREME ECC's USB Type-C port. The Intel USB 3.1 controller utilizes 4 PCIe Gen3 lanes, offering high bandwidth, for uncompromised transfer speeds. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the reversible USB Type-C and the traditional USB Standard-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices. Utilizing specialized memory chips on the RAM modules, it can eliminate small data discrepancies and prevent data corruption to ensure reliability for critical applications while helping to reduce system crashes.
