Gigabyte Adds 3TB+ HDD Support to Its Motherboards

Gigabyte has just announced the release of a new utility which allows all the company’s motherboards that don’t feature the Hybrid EFI technology to recognize and use unallocated space on new 3TB and larger hard disc drives, a feat that wasn’t previously possible.

The utility adds support for the drives at the OS level and allows even older operating systems, like the 32bit version of Windows XP, to use HDDs that exceed 2.19TB in capacity.

3TB+ Unlock currently supports new high-end motherboard models based on the Intel X58, Intel 6-series and AMD 800-series chipsets, and is in the process of being ported to older chipset models so that it will support all motherboards that Gigabyte is currently shipping.

A list with all the supported models is available here, and includes such models as the company’s recently launched G1-Assassin rage, the GA-P67A-UD7-B3 and GA-P67A-UD5-B3 models as well as the soon-to-be-released GA-880G-USB3 (rev. 3.1) AMD Bulldozer motherboard.

Gigabyte’s utility is available for download from the company’s website by following this link.
