My System Specs


Now this is the point in the review that we say “See! More isn’t better”. Here we have a simple 4+1 power delivery system that simply blew us away. More phases do not always equate to accurate and stable power delivery as the UD3H so perfectly illustrates. Great work, GIGABYTE!
No offense, but you'd really need an oscilloscope to make that determination. The switching frequency of the PWM controller is much higher than the sampling rate of the DMM. The benefit of having more phases is that they help produce a more flat output waveform; adding more phases doesn't necessarily improve the voltage regulation.
