Gigabyte, manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has unveiled its first “tactical gaming” monitor. We do not know what tactical gaming is, but we do know the Aorus FI25F is a 1080p SuperSpeed IPS gaming monitor to power gamers’ needs. First off, let’s talk specs on this monitor. Using Gigabyte SuperSpeed IPS technology, this monitor can achieve response times of .04ms and a 240Hz refresh rate while serving up good color and picture quality thanks to DisplayHDR 400 certification. The FI25F also has AMD FreeSync technology inside, so you do not have to worry about screen tearing. With its 24.5” screen, it will be a good fit for gamers with smaller desks... Read more...
PAX East is chock full of dazzling sights and sounds. One of the crown jewels was a series of custom-built PCs showcased by Gigabyte's Aorus sub-brand. The seven systems were designed and built by either an enthusiast community member or a professional modder. Aorus contributed parts but otherwise allowed the creators to execute on their vision. We caught up with one of the builders, Kevin Tabor from Mod My Mods, who gave us an overview of each of the systems. The builds span a wide range of stylings. There are a couple systems with minuscule footprints and others in massive towers. One system uses the aggressive stylings of the Cougar Conquer chassis while others float free in open air frames....

Gigabyte is looking to take its cooling game to a new level. Having dabbled in air coolers, the company is launching a line of all-in-one liquid coolers with RGB lighting under the Aorus banner. These are the first Aorus AIO liquid coolers, and they will be available in three radiator sizes, including 360mm, 280mm, and 240mm. "The release of our ATC800 Cooler earlier this year was met with praise and we have followed through with a cooling solution for fans of AIO cooling," said Jackson Hsu, Director of the Gigabyte Channel Solutions Product Development Division. "The universal design for fan and pump RPM control allows for the new AIO coolers to work with motherboards from all brands." As you... Read more...
It seems like a great time to buy a shiny new monitor for a gaming PC. FreeSync 2-certified monitors are plentiful on the open market and multiple companies are actively pushing them out the door to fight for your hard-earned dollars. Since NVIDIA started supporting FreeSync earlier this year, both GeForce and Radeon owners can take full advantage of variable refresh rate goodness without paying the price premiums associated with buying certain displays with G-Sync modules inside. If you haven't already, the time is right to start shopping for a high-refresh-rate FreeSync display -- the affect on smoothness and tearing is stark and make modern gaming monitors a worthwhile investment....

To say the just-released AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors and Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards are game-changers for AMD (and PC enthusiasts) would be an understatement. The Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series processors aggressively take on Intel's competitive offerings in virtually every metric and offer features, like PCI Express 4.0, not yet available on other platforms. PCI Express 4.0 means more bandwidth for components like graphics cards and solid state storage, and more bandwidth can translate to fewer bottlenecks and increased performance, especially for storage. AMD's latest offerings have OEM partners like Gigabyte excited and lining-up to support the platform. Gigabyte has an extensive... Read more...
Amid all of the hoopla surrounding AMD's next-generation Ryzen processors based on its Zen 2 CPU architecture is an interesting technology that complements the launch. We are talking about PCI Express 4.0. This is part of AMD's accompanying X570 chipset for Ryzen, and it doubles the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0. One of the immediate benefits we will see from this is the introduction of faster NVMe solid state drives, such as Gigabyte's newest AORUS model. The caveat is that, on the consumer side, the only combination that supports PCIe 4.0 right now is an X570 motherboard paired with a third-generation Ryzen processor, both of which you will be able to get your hands on in July. In the meantime, we... Read more...
When it comes to gaming peripherals these days, the mantra seems to be “RGB All The Things,” and that’s exactly the case with Gigabyte’s latest SSDs. First announced at CES 2019, Gigabyte’s Aorus RGB AIC NVMe SSDs have officially debuted on the company’s website and are available in 512GB and 1TB sizes. At the heart of these NVME 1.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 add-in cards is Toshiba 3D TLC BiCS3 NAND flash that is backed by a Phision SSD controller (with its own dedicated DRAM cache). For the 512TB SKU, Gigabyte is quoting sequential read and write speeds of up to 3480 MB/sec and 2100 MB/sec respectively. The 1TB has the same listed read speeds, but sees its write speeds...

If you are the kind of gamer who is torn between needing a thin and light notebook on the go but still want cutting edge graphical performance, you have probably had your eye on an external graphics dock. Low-power internal graphics can get you through your classes or workday, then back at home a quick plug-in transforms your laptop into a AAA-gaming powerhouse. Gigabyte, like other manufacturers, has been keen to cover this market with Pascal-based GTX 1070 and 1080 and Radeon RX 580 Gaming Boxes. Now, we have caught a glimpse of Gigabyte's upcoming GeForce RTX 2070 Aorus Gaming Box with ray-tracing Turing goodness. VideoCardz.com posted an image of the anticipated final product which can be... Read more...
Post launch, NVIDIA’s board partners ramped-up their custom GeForce RTX designs relatively quickly. It’s not uncommon for some of the larger, premiere partners to have custom cards ready on launch day, but with the GeForce GTX series, some of them had literally dozens of different cards at the ready. Gigabyte didn’t hit the ground running quite as hard as some others right on launch day, but WOW has the Taiwanese manufacturer since hit its strike and shipped a wide array of GeForce RTX cards. The company’s website lists no less than 26 GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, including everything from small form factor mini-ITX models, on up to factory-overclocked, water-cooled...

Slowly but surely, Gigabyte is expanding its lineup of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards based on NVIDIA's recently launched Turing architecture. The notable new entries fall under the company's Aorus gaming brand and include four new models in all, with fancy RGB lighting to light up your PC. We poked around and could not find product pages for any of the new cards, though Aorus did tease a handful of photos on Twitter. The photos show one of the new cards sitting in the dark with the RGB lighting turned up. think that there's only a limited choice of RGB color options? Think again! Oh the possibilities..... 😎 😍 ✨ #AORUS #RTX20series #GeForceRTX #graphicscard #GeBeyond... Read more...
Gigabyte is all over the GeForce RTX launch, including models that will be sold under its Aorus gaming brand. The company has finally provided a first look at one of those cards, the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme 8G, and also revealed several upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti product models. Let's start with the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme 8G. Gigabyte slow played the launch by first teasing the card in a short 15-second clip posted to YouTube. Check it out below... Not long after, Gigabyte posted a second, more informative video showcasing the card and discussing some of the details, such as cooling, aesthetics, and so forth. If you have a few minutes to spare, you can check... Read more...
If you know where to look, there is much more to find on the Internet than the latest development in the ongoing Machine Gun Kelly versus Eminem dispute. Really, there is. For example, followers of Gigabyte's AORUS Twitter account will have spotted a teaser clip that appears to show off an upcoming motherboard, presumably based on Intel's Z390 chipset. AORUS, as you might already know, is Gigabyte's "premium gaming" brand, just as ASUS maintains a Republic of Gamers (ROG) division for its enthusiast products. Based on some of the leaks we have seen so far, Gigabyte will market and sell Z390 motherboards under both its main brand and its AORUS division. What we have here is an AORUS motherboard,...

If you build it, they will come. We learned that lesson in Field of Dreams, and it applies to the technology sector too, not just baseball fields out in the middle of nowhere. So what exactly is being built? Intel has put together a new Z390 chipset for its upcoming 9th generation processor launch, and Gigabyte appears ready to roll with at least one Z390 motherboard (more likely several) from its Aorus division. Otherwise known as Coffee Lake Refresh, the upcoming 9th generation Core processor launch is rumored to include up to 8-core CPU options, bringing parity (in core and thread counts) with AMD's Ryzen processors to the mainstream market. Some of the SKUs (up to 6 cores) have already been... Read more...
Motherboard makers are gearing up to launch new products based on AMD's X470 chipset, all of which will launch alongside the Santa Clara chip developer's upcoming Ryzen 2000 series. Other than perhaps putting some last minute touches on revised BIOSes and drivers, the new hardware is ready to go. And leading up to the launch, leaked images of a handful of Gigabyte X470 boards have popped up online. Gigabyte is never shy when it comes to releasing a whole bunch of boards for any particular chipset. With the X470 coming into view, Gigabyte will have ready at least three higher end options for gamers, all under its Aorus division. They include the X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi, X470 Aorus Gaming 5 WiFi,... Read more...
Pat yourself on the back if you resisted the urge to buy a gaming laptop in anticipation of Intel launching new 6-core/12-thread mobile processors. They are finally here, and we are seeing a whole bunch of new laptops pop up with these chips inside. That includes Gigabyte, which updated three of its laptop models through its Aorus gaming brand, including the 15.6-inch X5 and 17.3-inch X7 DT and X9 DT. All three laptop models feature 8th generation Intel Core processors underneath the hood. Starting at the top, the Aorus X9 DT wields the fastest of the new mobile bunch, the Core i9-8950HK, an unlocked chip clocked at 2.9GHz to 4.8GHz, with 12MB of L3 cache and a 45W TDP. Paired with up to 64GB... Read more...
For whatever reason, NVIDIA does not want its hardware partners overclocking the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti at the factory. This is probably to prevent closing the performance gap between (and cannibalizing sales of) it and the GeForce GTX 1080, though interestingly enough, NVIDIA said it designed the 1070 Ti with overclocking in mind. The only caveat is you have to do it yourself, and Gigabyte is making it easy with its new AORUS GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card. Out of the box, the AORUS GeForce GTX 1070 Ti sticks to reference clocks, as all 1070 Ti cards do, with a 1,607MHz base clock and 1,683MHz boost clock. However, using the company's AORUS Graphics Engine software, owners flip the switch from... Read more...
Gigabyte is running a very cool promotion for its X299-based motherboards and is offering new owners what it’s calling an “X299 Xperience Pack”, if they register the boards before September 14. Our X299 Xperience Pack showed up a couple of days ago, so we thought we’d show you what was inside. Take a look... The Gigabyte Aorus X299 Xperience Pack includes some fun goodies. Inside the box, you’ll find a Gigabyte RGB Fusion-Ready, Hybrid LED lighting kit that’s compatible with the LED headers on Gigabyte’s X299 motherboards. There’s also a set of Sennheiser CX 3.0 earbuds, a coupon for a one year Xsplit Premium license, a massive cloth keyboard and mouse pad, and a heavy-duty Aorus-branded hoodie.... Read more...
There are plenty of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards to choose from, assuming you're in the market for a top-shelf solution for high-end and/or 4K gaming. However, the field of contenders quickly begins to diminish when you weed out all of the air-cooled variants and limited your search to just liquid-cooled cards. One such card that falls into the latter category is Gigabyte's Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce WB Xtreme Edition 11G. That is quite the mouthful, though there is plenty more here than just a long-winded name. Gigabyte's newest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is an enthusiast solution for users either already have a liquid cooling setup inside their rigs, or plan to implement one. As such,... Read more...
Enthusiast system builders have a lot to be excited about this summer. New high-end CPUs and GPUs are on the horizon and it doesn't even matter where your allegiance lies—Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA have all announced some exciting new products.

We are expecting there to be some exciting announcements at Computex next week, one of which might include Intel's next generation X299 platform for Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X, the company's new generation of high-end desktop (HEDT) processors. Whether that actually happens at Computex or not, there is little doubt we are getting close to an official launch, as the first leaked images of X299 motherboards have found their way to the web.The images all belong to Gigabyte and its Aorus brand for gamers. At the top of the stack is the X299 Aorus Gaming 9 that is decked out in RGB lighting and no less than five reinforced PCI Express x16 slots. Have a look:Also visible are multiple M.2 slots for installing... Read more...
NVIDIA shook up the top of the graphics card market a couple of weeks back with the release of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. In its stock, Founder’s Edition form, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti proved to be the fastest consumer-class graphics card available, but that didn’t stop NVIDIA’s board partners from quickly announcing custom versions packing even more horsepower. Case in point: The beastly Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB we will be showing you here. The Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB is the first, fully-custom, factory-overclocked (and ready to rock) GTX 1080 Ti to hit the lab, and we’ve just finished putting it through its paces.Gigabyte has tweaked and modified virtually every...

Gigabyte is getting ready to beef up its arsenal of Pascal parts with no less than three GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards. Two of them will be marketed under its Aorus gaming division, leaving one with Gigabyte's own branding. All three will feature custom cooling solutions with three fans keeping the GPU nice and chilly, along with overclocked specs straight out of the factory. Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC 11G Starting with Gigabyte's own branded GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC 11G, this is the slowest clocked card of the bunch, though it's a still a speed demon in its own right: OC Mode: 1,544MHz base, 1,657MHz boost Gaming Mode: 1,515MHz base, 1,632MHz boost Both modes are faster...
