All three come with Gigabyte Q-Flash Plus that allows users to update the BIOS without having a processor or RAM installed. Just copy the BIOS on a USB flash drive and the motherboard will flash the updated BIOS.

Moreover, Gigabyte has decided to change the shape and brand their VRM. Also in the G1.Killer model, you will find a new arrangement of the board sinks with option to integrate a custom liquid cooling system. Another interesting feature is the inclusion of what Gigabyte has called Turbo V-Clock Tuning IC. Overclocking fans will find it much easier to increase the operating frequency of the processor installed in these chipsets.

Also, in some models they have integrated some physical buttons to perform overclocking without having to enter the BIOS.
