In case you haven't been keeping up with all things Turing, NVIDIA is reportedly set to announce a new budget graphics card this week. Called the GeForce GTX 1650, this new SKU will sit at the very bottom of NVIDIA's Turing graphics card lineup. With an official launch eminent, it should come as no surprise that retail cards are beginning to leak out of the woodwork. In this case, VideoCardz has unearthed a whole slew of new GeForce GTX 1650 cards from ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and Zotac. Here's the rundown of the latest bach of cards that have been leaked: ASUS GeForce GTX 1650 Dual OC GeForce GTX 1650 Phoenix OC GeForce GTX 1650 ROG Strix OC Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming OC GeForce...

Today we are going to take a look at Gigabyte’s Z390 Designare motherboard, one of the company's more recent Socket 1151-based boards for Intel's 8th and 9th Generation Coffee Lake-based processors. This board has a lean and mean look about it, even menacing in a way, with its mostly black aesthetic with silver highlights scattered about. Its VRM heatsink even carries a yin-yang motif, with the black sink at the top and silver to the left of the CPU socket.   This color palette provides a clean, sharp look with its M.2 slot sharing the same light and dark offset and the PCH sink providing a final accent. The board carries a bevy of features targeted at creative professionals.... 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...

We are only a couple of weeks removed from the launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and NVIDIA is already at it again. This time around, we have yet another affordably-priced, Turing-based GPU to show you all, the GeForce GTX 1660 – sans Ti. As its naming suggest, the new GeForce GTX 1660 is very similar to its more-powerful counterpart; they’re both based on the same GPU, but a few cores and other components have been disabled in the GTX 1660. A handful of other changes have been made with the GeForce GTX 1660 as well, which push the card down a rung in terms of performance, but also bring down the price. We have a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 cards on tap for you here, one from EVGA... Read more...
NVIDIA might as well hurry up and formally introduce its GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards already. While still not official, the new cards have been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors. That continues this weekend with press renders of an overclocked model from Gigabyte, some new benchmarks, and even information about pricing. If you have somehow missed all of the chatter surrounding these new cards, they are upcoming Turing parts, but without RTX features such as real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling support. Recently leaked images of an actual GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU suggests that NVIDIA is going with a new version of Turing that lacks RT cores and... Read more...
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...
Gigabyte is known for blitzing product categories with a healthy assortment of options, and if a new entry to the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) is any indication, that trend will continue when NVIDIA announces its rumored GeForce RTX 2060. According to the leaked listing, Gigabyte will offer nearly 40 different models. That sounds like a stretch, but it's actually plausible when you consider a couple of things. The first is that Gigabyte makes and sells graphics cards under both its own branding, and its Aorus brand for gamers and enthusiasts. So, there's that. The second thing that puts this leak in the realm of possibility is it shows three different memory allotments available on the... 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...

Gigabyte's latest motherboard makes it a little easier to incorporate a custom liquid cooling loop into your setup. That's because its new Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce comes with a fitted all-on-one monoblock that you attach to the motherboard. The advantage of a solution like this is that it blends in with Gigabyte's design aesthetic, so it doesn't look like an external piece. You still have to install the monoblock, as it doesn't come already attached to the motherboard. That said, the process outlined in the user manual looks easy enough—connect the LED cables to the LED_CPU and LED-PCH headers on the motherboard, then place the monoblock on the motherboard and fasten the CPU backplate....

We’ve been hearing about an alleged GeForce RTX 2060 from NVIDIA for quite a few months, but haven’t seen any concrete information confirming its existence. Well, a new leak today alleges that at least one NVIDIA hardware partner will be releasing a GeForce RTX 2060: Gigabyte. This new rumor comes from VideoCardz, which says that Gigabyte’s card will be called the GeForce RTX 2060 OC. Powering the card will be NVIDIA’s TU106 Turing GPU and it will be paired with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. One other item of note is that while the card will come with an 8-pin power connector, NVIDIA’s reference specs allegedly only call for a 6-pin connection. Also among the... Read more...
We have seen a flurry of product launches over the past few months from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. While we get to reap the rewards of technology’s ever steady march of progress, their partners have been hard at work ensuring their offerings can withstand the ever increasing demands of bleeding-end hardware, and appeal to consumers at the same time. In this spirit, Gigabyte recently invited us to a launch event in Miami for its newest Aorus branded motherboards, graphics cards, and peripherals. Technically, everything Gigabyte showed us had already been announced, but the presentations did offer a glimpse into many of the engineering and marketing decisions the company has made in an...

Analysts are predicting motherboard and graphics card makers will be taking a hit for the entire first half of 2019 thanks to a downturn in the cryptocurrency mining realm, and shortages of Intel CPUs. Intel has had significant issues with its move to the 10nm process node and will see shortages of some of its current generation 14nm++ processors as well. Due to the processor shortages, motherboard makers will see fewer sales because enthusiasts and PC builders won't need the boards if there are no CPUs to plug into them. Sources claim that inventory levels were up at Asustek, Gigabyte, and other motherboard and graphics card makers in Q3 2018. Increased inventory means less product shipped,... Read more...
Gigabyte continues to flesh out its line of Z390 motherboards designed around Intel's latest chipset. The total number of Z390 motherboards in Gigabyte's stable now stands at a dozen, with the addition of the Z390 Designare and Z390 Aorus Xtreme. Both are high-end motherboards with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, but they're aimed at different audiences. Let's start with the Z390 Aorus Xtreme. This one stands as Gigabyte's top-shelf Z390 motherboard and has a price tag to match—$549.99 MSRP (ouch!). That price will put it out of reach of the typical mainstream shopper, and certainly those looking for a bang-for-buck solution, with Gigabyte seemingly targeting enthusiasts and overclockers who...

Around a week ago, NVIDIA quietly updated its GeForce GTX 1060 product page to include GDDR5X memory as an option, meaning there is yet another version of one of the most popular mid-range graphics cards out there. When would we start to see new cards sport the upgraded memory? Right now, as it turns out. Gigabyte wasted no time implementing GDDR5X memory onto a custom cooled model, the GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming D5X 6G. For anyone who is not familiar with the GeForce GTX 1060 line, it's primarily available in 6GB and 3GB variants, though there is also a 5GB model floating around in China. All of them use GDDR5 memory, clocked at either 8Gbps or 9Gbps. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and GeForce GTX... Read more...
