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... 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... Read more...
Sometime in the what we believe to be the near future, Intel will finally roll out its 9th generation Core processor family, which is rumored to include two 8-core CPU models. We'll have to wait and see about that. Until then, Intel's hardware partners are gearing up for the launch with supporting hardware. Specifically, Gigabyte is waiting in the wings with multiple new motherboards based on Intel's upcoming Z390 Express chipset. Gigabyte has not announced anything yet, of course, but there are multiple leaked press renders of the company's upcoming motherboards. The newest one depicts a Gigabyte... Read more...
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...

NVIDIA just dropped a massive bombshell on the gaming community with its GeForce RTX family of products, which include the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. If you want to know more about the Turing architecture that underpins these cards and about their ray-tracing performance, we suggest you check out our two previous articles on the Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX announcements, but here's a quick refresher on what separates the three: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4352 CUDA cores, 1545MHz boost clock, 11GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2080:     2944 CUDA cores, 1710MHz...

Top tier motherboard makers have started rolling out new products based on AMD's X399 chipset, presumably in anticipation for second-generation Ryzen Threadripper chips that are right around the corner. That includes the beastly slice of silicon with 32 cores and 64 threads that AMD has been teasing since Computex. Starting with ASUS, the company did not announce any new motherboards, but did introduce a cooling kit for its existing ROG Zenith Extreme. The cooling kit consist of a small fan, bracket, SOC heatsink, and set of screws. It is intended to keep vital parts of the motherboard from overheating... Read more...
At long last, AMD's hardware partners have formally introduced a slew of new motherboards based on the company's B450 chipset. Whereas AMD's X470 is aimed at power users and enthusiasts, B450 boards typically target buyers on a budget. Prices vary depending on features, of course, but for the most part B450 motherboards should check in at under $200. The main thing you give up with B450 versus X470 is multiple GPU support (CrossFireX and SLI). Otherwise, B450 and X470 are overall pretty similar—they have the same number of PCIe Gen3 lanes (16 with Ryzen 7 CPUs), both support overclocking,... Read more...
There's no shortage of options in the DIY micro-PC market, one that Raspberry Pi arguably spearheaded over five-years-ago with the release of its first unit. Since that time, a lot of competition has risen to the surface, including none other than Taiwan's GIGABYTE, a company that knows a thing or two about developing motherboards worth using. The GA-SBCAP3450 is an iterative design that builds on the initial release last year. Notably, the biggest upgrade includes the boost to a quad-core processor, a rather gargantuan leap from a dual-core. That chip, Intel's Celeron N3450, can boost up to 2.2GHz,... Read more...
Gigabyte is pulling the covers off some new gaming peripherals and other PC component hardware at Computex 2018. One of the products is the company's new AORUS RGB gaming RAM. The memory is a 16GB kit using a pair of DDR4 8GB DIMMs. It operates up to clock speeds of 3200 MHz with has timings of 16-18-18-38. Voltage is 1.2V standard and when XMP is enabled 1.35V is consumed. The DDR4 DRAM chips employed are Samsung B die parts and the sticks are fitted with a fancy looking symmetric high-efficiency heat spreader. The RGB LED lights on the RAM supports 5 DDR light effects. Gigabyte says that... Read more...
Gigabyte today announced a couple of new 4U GPU servers for the datacenter, both packed with multiple NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to bring massive parallel computing capabilities to the sector. According to Gigabyte, its new G481-S80 and G481-HA0 offer some of the highest GPU density available in the 4U form factor—the former accommodates eight SXM2 form factor GPUs, such as NVIDIA's Volta-based Tesla V100 or Pascal-based Tesla P100, and the latter packs 10 GPUs. These new servers also feature NVIDIA's NVLink technology supporting bi-directional communication between GPUs, allowing for higher bandwidth... Read more...
As consumers, we're all sitting here twiddling our thumbs patiently waiting for NVIDIA to release its next generation GPUs. Not that Pascal isn't cutting it anymore. Far from it, but after two years on the market, we're ready for Turing or Ampere or whatever NVIDIA has up its sleeves. It could still be several months before see new GPUs though, with a representative for Gigabyte inadvertently tipping availability for the end of the year. In a post that is no longer accessible on OverclockersUK's forum, a "vendor rep" for Gigabyte and its Aorus division answered a question about what immediate changes... Read more...
Fans of gaming and computer hardware who didn’t get to go to PAX East this year take heart; we have booth video tours from the floor of the show that give you an excellent glimpse at what you missed. Our first video is the tour of the MSI booth at the show and all of the latest gaming notebooks the company offers are on full display. The full RGB keyboard backlighting is nice and some of the keyboards can be programmed to light specific keys for each game. Our second booth tour is of the Gigabyte booth, and the company has lots of its computer hardware on display. One of the coolest products... 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,... 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... Read more...
