Everyone in their grandma is announcing new products based around Intel Kaby Lake and NVIDIA Pascal at CES 2017, and Gigabyte is no different. The company has two new dedicated gaming notebooks that feature the CPU/GPU pairings: the P56 and the Sabre 15. The P56 manages to cram in a Core i7-7700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and into a 15.6-inch frame. The notebook comes standard with a 1080p display, but if you pony up some additional dollars, you can opt for a 4K (3840x2160) display. The P56 features an island-style backlit RGB keyboard with individually-lit keys (giving users a... Read more...
Gigabyte is splashing the market with more than a half a dozen gaming grade motherboards based on Intel's Z270 chipset and designed for the chipmaker's new desktop Kaby Lake silicon. The new feature-packed boards are all being marketed under Gigabyte's Aorus division, which is its premium gaming brand that up until now has been mostly associated with gaming laptops and a spattering of accessories. As we embark into 2017, it appears that Gigabyte will leverage its Aorus division to denote hardware aimed at gamers across its full spectrum of products, including laptops, peripherals (keyboard and...

The Gigabyte BRIX Gaming UHD is an exciting small form factor PC prospect. It packs a surprising amount of muscle into a tiny frame. This little flyweight may not sound too beastly with its GeForce GTX 950, but Gigabyte reckons it is more than capable of streaming 4K UHD media and taking a few swings at 1080p gaming with good image quality. Its 4.3-inch square footprint should help it blend into many entertainment centers or find a home on a dorm room desk for work, play, business or pleasure. Most ultra small form-factor computers, by comparison, rely on integrated graphics to due to thermal constraints.... Read more...
When Gigabyte was making the rounds with its BRIX Gaming UHD small form-factor PC, we were a bit puzzled by the inclusion of the older NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 instead of the (at the time) readily available Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070. Apparently, we just needed to wait a few more months, as Gigabyte just leaked a potent follow-up that will more than likely be officially announced at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The BRIX Gaming GT made a brief appearance on Gigabyte’s website before being taking down. However, the product pages were left up long enough for specs and pictures to be scooped... Read more...
Today we are going to take a look at Gigabyte’s Z170X-Designare motherboard, one of the company's more recent Socket 1151-based boards for Intel's 6th Generation Skylake-based processors. At first glance this is an unassuming board, at least in terms of its appearance. It features a dark and subdued black PCB with chrome highlights and nothing overly dramatic or gaudy. Yet for the sub-$250 price tag, this motherboard is loaded up with a strong array of cutting edge technologies. Among them is support for Intel Thunderbolt 3 across the board’s USB Type-c connection on the back I/O. This... Read more...
If you’re a fan of Gigabyte’s BRIX family of small form-factor barebones PCs, then you’ll be happy to learn that the company is updating the lineup with Kaby Lake power. Kaby Lake brings improved processing performance across the board, a 10 percent uplift in graphics performance, and a new HEVC 10-bit hardware acceleration media engine for all your 4K video needs. Those that opt for Gigabyte’s new BRIX computers can choose from power-sipping Intel Core i3-7100U, Core i5-7200U, and Core i7-7500U processors depending on your budget and performance needs. The BRIX is also available in two sizes,... Read more...
As longtime enthusiasts, we tend to get most excited for the latest, big, bad, benchmark-busting specimens of PC hardware to hit the lab. However, there’s something about ultra-small form factor devices that’s intriguing as well. The focus on power efficiency and performance-per-watt from virtually all semi-conductor manufacturers over the last few years has enabled some pretty impressive hardware in fairly tiny form factors, and it’s now possible to have a fully-functional – and rather quick – desktop PC that literally fits in the palm of your hand.Take the Gigabyte Brix S (model number BSi5HT-6200)...

NVIDIA hit a lot of high notes with the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080. When the Founder’s Edition launched earlier this summer, it received accolades for its excellent performance, power efficiency, and host of new features. If you’d like a refresher on what’s new in NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and see what makes the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition tick, we’d strongly suggest checking our launch coverage. We’ve got the full scoop laid out for you there.As HOT as the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition is, we were eager to see what NVIDIA’s board partners would do with the GTX 1080. The GP104...

We’ve previously talked at length about Gigabyte’s BRIX small form factor PCs here at HotHardware, but we were able to lay our eyes (and hands) on a new member of the family at this week’s Intel Developer Forum (IDF). Rather than the traditional BRIX shape, which spreads most of its visual mass horizontally, the BRIX Gaming UHD goes for a more vertical design. Looking somewhat like a miniature trash can, the BRIX Gaming UHD features an aluminum chassis that measures 220mm x 110mm x 110mm. Mounted atop the chassis is a fan that expels heat from the high-end processor and mainstream discrete GPU.... Read more...
Gigabyte, Corsair and Intel held a press event in California on June 30th to show off some of their new hardware. Though Intel just talked broadly about its thoughts on the PC gaming market (it's growing, and they are committed to it, basically), Gigabyte and Corsair both demo'd high-end gear it first unveiled at Computex. We were on-hand to check everything out, and have the details lined up for you here. First up, we have some video of many of the products... IntelIntel didn't have anything new to show, but wanted to reiterate its commitment to the PC gaming and high-end desktop spaces, as evidenced... Read more...
NVIDIA and AMD have locked horns on the mid-range battlefield for graphics cards, the latter with its $200 (4GB) and $239 (8GB) Radeon RX 480, and the former responding with its $250 GeForce GTX 1060 ($300 for the Founder's Edition). Of course, it's the custom cards that are most interesting, and though the GTX 1060 is just two days removed from an official unveiling, companies like Gigabyte and ASUS are already teasing their own variants.Starting with ASUS, you can expect several custom versions of the GeForce GTX 1060, three of which it teased on its Republic of Gamers Facebook page. They include... Read more...
Many of us were impressed with pint-sized performance of the AMD   Radeon R9 Nano, which packs quite a punch with an MSRP of $499 (although you can find it for as low as $460 if you look hard enough). But there’s a new performance-per-watt king in town with the arrival of Pascal, and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 GPU is proving to be quite a formidable graphics powerhouse. To that end, Gigabyte has unveiled its new GeForce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC, which packs all the power of NVIDIA’s latest GPU in a card that measures just 17cm. Gigabyte has designed a custom cooling system for the tiny graphics... Read more...
Last week we told you about Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming card, which brought with it the Windforce 3X cooler. We also made mention that an even more impressive card would be following closely behind, and thus we present you with the GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming. Whereas the G1 Gaming made use of the Windforce 3X cooler, the Extreme Gaming goes a step further with Windforce Stack Cooling. There are three fans (each with double ball bearings) that cover the length of the card, however, the central counter-rotating fan sits just slightly below the two outer fans. Gigabyte says that not... Read more...
As we’ve seen in our recent review of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, Pascal is kicking some serious butt and shows no signs of taking orders from anyone. Luckily, plenty of NVIDIA’s board partners have lined up to produce graphics cards based on Pascal and here we are today staring at Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 1080 G1 GAMING, which will be vying for your attention on digital store shelves across the internet. As you might expect coming from Gigabyte, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill Pascal card; it actually uses the company’s signature WINDFORCE 3X cooling system that incorporates a trio of fans...
