What is Smart 6?
A Smarter way for PC system Management
GIGABYTE Smart 6™ is designed with user-friendliness in mind, and offers a combination of 6 innovative software utilities that
provide easier and smarter PC system management. Smart 6™ allows you to speed up system performance, reduce boot-up
time, manage a secure platform and recover previous system settings easily with a click of the mouse button.
Smart QuickBoot
~ No more waiting for PC Boot up!

SMART QuickBoot speeds up the system

boot-up process and shortens the waiting
time for entering the operating system,
delivering greater efficiency for daily use.

BIOS QuickBoot :
Shorten boot up POST time !!!

OS QuickBoot :
Shorten entering OS wait time!!!
This utility will do ‘Suspend’ & ‘Hibernate at the same
time when the system powers down, so the system
will resume from suspend (S3) at next power on! Data
is still protected by hibernation (S4) even if power is
lost at shutdown
