Chipset and Bus

The EVGA Z77 FTW uses the Intel Z77 Express Chipset. This chipset has native USB 3.0 and native SATA 6G support directly off the controller for the best performance, support and stability today.

The EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard supports PCI-E 3.0 performance via a PLX 8747 PCI-E 3.0 certified bridge chip. This allows the EVGA Z77 FTW to populate all PCI-E 3.0 slots at the maximum bandwidth possible. The PCI-E lane configuration is as follows:

  • 1 Card: x16
  • 2 Cards: x16 – x16 (Slot 2 & Slot 4)
  • 3 Cards: x8 - x16 - x16
  • 4 Cards: x8 - x16 - x8 - x8


Performance is not the end of the story. 100% native USB 3.0 and SATA 6G, 4-Way SLI on PCI-E 3.0, dual Gigabit NIC’s and a Mini DisplayPort connector are all included on the board.

EVGA knows that power is critical for a performance board. No compromises were made here. The board also offers dual 8 pin CPU power connectors for maximum stability and extreme overclocking. After that a 7+1 Phase PWM, POSCAP Capacitors and a CPU socket with 300% increase in gold content deliver clean, stable power to your CPU.

For graphics power, EVGA has added dual 6 PIN PCI-E power connectors. Use a single 6 Pin PCI-E power connector for multi-card stability, or a second for extreme overclocking. Speaking of multi-cards, the layout on the EVGA Z77 FTW is designed from the ground up for expandability, with 5 PCI-E 16x mechanical slots + 1 PCI-E 1x.

For storage, the EVGA Z77 FTW has you covered. Native USB 3.0 support delivers superspeed performance for next generation storage devices, and native SATA 6G enables maximum performance on the latest SolidState and Mechanical storage drives.
