GIGABYTE have launched a new motherboard series with their proprietary Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture brought upon by humid and damp conditions. This is implemented in all the recently launched Ultra Durable 4 Classic motherboards. You can have a look at the supported models here.
Better protection against humidity
The Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material, which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate, compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This ensures a much better protection from short circuits and system malfunctions, caused by humidity. This unique kind of PCB process actually helps protect the motherboard from moisture at the PCB level, with improvements to how the actual PCB structure is manufactured. In the picture above, you can also see how the PCB weave is made thinner and flatter, which helps make the PCB more resistant to CAF and electrical shorting. The finer weave facilitates a flatter, tighter result, which again, prevents moisture penetration and eventual shorting.
