Here is a little fun fact about technology journalism—the Consumer Electronics Show is typically the busiest time of the year for tech writers, while April Fool's Day is the most challenging. Why the latter? Gag announcement abounds, and in the wild world of technology, it's not always easy to separate the silliness from the real stuff. Case in point—is NVIDIA giving its add-in board (AIB) partners the green light to outfit GeForce GTX 1650 graphics cards with GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR5? It sure seems that way. There have been multiple leaks and rumors suggesting as much, and as April Fool's Day has rolled into view, some retailer listings highlighting a pair of upgraded models... 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 has promoted its line of Designare motherboards aimed at creative professionals for quite some time, but now the company is ready to extend the brand to its memory kits. As such, Gigabyte has announced the Designare 64GB RAM kit, which will be available worldwide shortly. Gigabyte is hitting 64GB by using just two 32GB DDR4-3200 modules with CAS timings of 16-18-18-38 at 1.35V. Loaded up in one of its high-end Designare motherboards with 8 DIMM slots, and you're looking at a maximum capacity of 256GB. Each module is decked out with anodized aluminum heatsinks emblazoned with the Designare logo, and Gigabyte is promising a limited lifetime warranty. These new modules will find a perfect...

Motherboard makers can ill afford to let their foot off the gas pedal, not when there are now chipsets on the horizon. Intel is readying its Z490 chipset for its upcoming Comet Lake-S processors, while AMD is apparently prepping a B550 chipset for its Ryzen 3000 series. Meanwhile, Gigabyte is locked and loaded for both launches. Starting with the Z490 chipset, several Gigabyte-brand models were spotted at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website back in September. They included the following models... Z490 Aorus Elite Z490 D Z490 Gaming X Z490 UD Z490 White Z490M Z490M DS3H Z490M Gaming X Since then, there have been several new models listed at the EEC, including a few more that just showed...

I remember a time not all that long ago when the PC monitor market had grown rather stagnant. In more recent years, monitor makers have hit their stride by focusing on gaming features, like G-Sync and FreeSync, high refresh rates, and other enthusiast-oriented bells and whistles. As such, Gigabyte is expanding its growing monitor lineup with three new models sporting some tantalizing features. Gigabyte is best known for its motherboards and graphics cards, though it entered the gaming monitor market last year through its Aorus division. Now it's introducing a Gigabyte gaming series (read: non-Aorus). "The monitors received much positive feedback and have been selected as 2019’s best gaming... Read more...
By now, enthusiasts know the benefits of the PCIe 4.0 interface, especially when it comes to solid state drives (SSDs). For the past six months, we've seen a number of manufacturers release PCIe 4.0 SSDs that can reach up to 5GB/sec sequential reads and 4.4GB/s sequential writes. One of the first manufacturers to jump onboard was Gigabyte with its AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD using a Phison controller. Today, however, we got to see first-hand how Gigabyte has tuned its Aorus Gen4 AIC Adaptor to achieve even higher performance in 4-way RAID. Back in late May, Gigabyte was hitting speeds of 15GB/s with four of its PCIe SSD in a RAID-0 array using the AIC Adaptor. Now, however, the company... Read more...
At long last, AMD came out at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and finally introduced the Radeon RX 5600 XT, a SKU that had been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors prior to the official unveiling. As expected, several of AMD's hardware partners flipped the switch on product pages with custom models sporting fancy cooling solutions and, in some cases, factory overclocks. In a moment, we will give a rundown of the various custom Radeon RX 5600 XT models that have actual product pages. In time, even more custom models will appear, but our focus here is on the ones that we know to be real. Before we do that, however, let's quickly recap the specs and features of the Radeon RX 5600 XT. AMD... Read more...
It's a special time for us here at HotHardware.com, not only because it's the holiday season, but also because we're celebrating 20 years on the wild wild web! The very first version of HotHardware went live in 1999 and we have been partying like it ever since. With this major milestone – made possible by all of you, our loyal readers and #PCMasterRace gamers around the world – we thought it would be great to give something back. So, we teamed up with the good folks at Gigabyte and AMD, along with the talented team at Thermaltake, to put together a righteous, red and radical killer gaming PC giveaway system. Up for grabs was (past tense, we have a winner!) this totally awesome... Read more...
Sometime fairly soon (presumably), Gigabyte will be able to shout from a mountaintop, 'The Eagle has landed!' Or it could go the more traditional route and just issue a standard press release announcing its Radeon RX 5600 XT Eagle series of graphics cards. Either way, a Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) listing indicates the Eagle series is inbound. If you are confused and wondering if you missed an announcement for the Radeon RX 5600 XT in general, do not worry, you are not out of the loop. AMD has not yet formally introduced the upcoming card, which will join its 7-nanometer Navi product family. However, it's been the subject of rumors for several months, dating back to at least July of this... Read more...

it is starting to seem like a foregone conclusion that AMD will launch Radeon RX 5500 XT graphic cards with 8GB and 4GB of memory. This has been the rumor (officially, AMD so far has only announced a Radeon RX 5500 series, while making no mention of "XT" models specifically), and the latest round of leaked press renders suggest this is the case. We see this happen all the time, especially with graphics cards—just prior to a product launch (big or small), leaks and rumors come in, followed by seemingly legitimate press renders shortly before the actual launch. It's happening again, with leaked press renders showing retail Radeon RX 5500 XT models from ASRock and Gigabyte. Leaked ASRock Radeon... Read more...
Gigabyte has made available a beta BIOS update for its X570 Aorus Master motherboard, and with it comes new support for per-CCD overclocking on AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors. While we have not tested this ourselves, the firmware update should make it easier to achieve higher and more stable overclocked frequencies in some instances. This is a desirable feature because of the way AMD's latest generation Ryzen processors are designed. Depending on the specific model, a Ryzen 3000 series CPU can have one or two core chiplet dies (CCDs). In turn, each of those dies has two CPU complex or core complex (CCX) clusters. To give an example, the Ryzen 9 3950X has two CCDs, each with two CCX clusters.... Read more...
The wait is finally over—AMD on Thursday formally introduced its next generation Ryzen Threadripper lineup consisting of the 24-core/48-thread Threaderipper 3960X and 32-core/64-thread Threadripper 3970X (there will likely be more SKUs to follow). Following suit, AMD's hardware partners have come out with new TRX40 motherboards to house this next round of high-end desktop (HEDT) silicon, including multiple models from ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. The TRX40 platform is stout. It offers quad-channel DDR4 memory support (ECC optional), a total of 88 PCI Express 4.0 lanes, multi-GPU support (CrossFire and SLI), up to 12 native USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, up to 4 native USB 2.0 ports, two x4 NVMe ports, up to...

Well, look what we have here—a teaser image of a mysterious motherboard from Gigabyte. It's assumed this one will carry the Aorus branding, and if we direct our attention to the socket, we can further speculate this is a board intended for AMD's upcoming third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors due out next month. Details are in short supply here, but the socket in the image looks the same as AMD's existing TR4 socket found on current generation X399 motherboards. At this stage of the game, it would not make much sense to tease another current generation Threadripper motherboard, so what we are almost definitely looking at is a Gigabyte Aorus TRX40 board based on an upcoming TR4+...
