Today we are going to take a look at three popular Intel Z270-based motherboards targeted at power users and gamers, produced by enthusiast favorites Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI. The three boards we've rounded-up here cover a wide range of price points. The Gigabyte Aorus Z270X-Gaming K5 and ASUS ROG STRIX Z270F Gaming boards represent more mainstream segments, while the MSI Z270 XPOWER Gaming Titanium targets the ultra high-end. Although AMD's powerful Threadripper processors and Intel's upcoming 18-Core Skylake-X behemoth have gotten the lion's share of attention lately, more mainstream processors... Read more...

NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 GPU has been around for over a year now, so there’s isn’t seemingly much that could possibly be done to make us all that excited about the chip at this point, right? Well, someone didn’t get that memo to Gigabyte, as the hardware company has announced a genuinely interesting take on the popular GTX 1080 by putting all of that 4K graphics processing power into an incredibly small form-factor. Meet the GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G, which crams all of the ferocity of the standard GeForce GTX 1080 (which measures 26.7cm in length) into to a card that measures... 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... Read more...
If you are planning to build a system around a high-end desktop (HEDT) processor, then you probably have AMD's upcoming Threadripper launch on your radar. We will have to wait and see how things shake out, but on paper, Threadripper looks impressive—compared to Intel's HEDT lineup, Threadripper offers more cores and threads per dollar, along with more PCIe lanes for decked out configurations with multiple graphics cards and those fancy NVMe M.2 SSDs. Of course, performance will depend on the motherboard as well, and mobo makers are starting to reveal their Threadripper-compatible lineups.A spattering... Read more...
We have already seen some impressive things from AMD's long awaited Zen microarchitecture in the form of Ryzen, and in the not-too-distant future Threadripper will carry the torch on the desktop. However, things are just getting started. Zen will really spread its wings in the server and data center market, boy-oh-boy does Gigabyte have one heck of a motherboard ready. Gigabyte's new MZ31-AR0 has a boring name but a fun assortment of features of AMD's aptly named EPYC 7000 series processor family. Many of them are overkill for the desktop, including the 16 (yes, SIXTEEN) memory slots that support... Read more...
Preorders are currently underway for Intel’s new Core X-Series processors, which range from the quad-core, quad-thread Core i5-7640X ($242) to the 8-core, 36-thread Core i9-7980XE ($1,999). These new Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors require a brand-new chipset, the X299, and motherboard manufacturers have responded by providing a number of new offerings hitting multiple price points. Luckily, we’ve got a quick roundup of new X299 motherboards from EVGA, Gigabyte and MSI to get you started on your search for the perfect companion for your new Core X processor. ASUS ASUS has a total of seven... 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... Read more...
Motherboard makers have an obvious vested interested in the overclocking scene where limits are pushed and records are broken. With that in mind, Gigabyte is in full chest-thumping mode after hosting an X299 OC gathering in which experienced overclockers used one of its X299 motherboards to push an Intel Core i7-7740K processor all the way to 7.5GHz and slightly beyond. The gathering brought in some big names from the overclocking community, including HiCookie, Sofos, Dinos22, Youngpro, and SniperOZ. All of them toiled away through Computex en route to setting four new 3DMark world records at crazy... 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. For Intel, the big news is its Core i9 line of processors. In preparation for those chips reaching retail, Gigabyte unveiled a trio of X299 chipset motherboards under its Aorus gaming brand. "Marked with the Aorus brand the new X299 Aorus Gaming motherboards are here to exceed expectations, this is apparent just by glancing at the aggressive exterior of these... Read more...
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... Read more...
AMD has risen in rank thanks to its Ryzen launch and is once again a competitive force in the enthusiast market, but the roll out has not been without some bumps in the road. There are two main issues working to undermine Ryzen. One is that gaming performance is not where many thought it would be, and the second is memory compatibility. AMD already addressed the former, saying that gaming performance will improve in time as developers start to take advantage of Ryzen's features. And in regards to the latter, Gigabyte is readying a firmware release should help the situation. A representative for... 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... Read more...
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...
