Gigabyte has released their latest motherboard, which is the Z97X-Game Plus. It has been designed to compete with products like the ASUS Z97-Pro Gamer that are loaded with gamer-centric features at around the $150 price point. The board will be particularly appealing to gamers doing NVIDIA builds as the color scheme of the board is black with neon green accents.
Gigabyte has announced a new LGA2011v3 motherboard in the X99-SLI. This board is almost identical to the X99-UD4, which we recently reviewed. It is not a re-brand though because the PCB is actually different between the two. I assume Gigabyte is releasing this motherboard to make the most out of the pre-Summer sales season.
Gigabyte has rolled out a new GeForce GTX 960 graphics card, which is designed for space-constrained builds. It is the GV-N960IX-2GD which is a full-height graphics card, but is only 18.1 cm long, so it should fit into most mini-ITX cases out there.
When it comes to X99 motherboards we have taken a look at boards from ASUS, MSI, ASRock and EVGA. The company not on that list is Gigabyte and today we are getting our first look at one of their X99 motherboards. The X99-UD4 is set to be a more affordable motherboard in their X99 stack and is not really aimed towards gamers or overclockers, but offers a great set of features any user will appreciate. The board is part of the companies Ultra Durable line and features an all digital power design, 4-way graphics support, dual M.2 slot, SATA Express support, Intel Gigabit LAN, and the companies AMP-UP audio solution. Did I mention the board lights up too? Let’s get the board on the test bench and see if Gigabyte has a winner on their hands.
Now the cool part is that this kit comes to you in a hard-type suitcase! Definitely a great way to showoff a premium product like this. Of course it has a premium price of $2999, but you do get a free Acer 27-inch G-Sync monitor.
Typically ASUS is the #1 motherboard manufacturer, they always ship more units than their competitors. Trailing behind is always Gigabyte, but it looks like they were able to claim the #1 spot for the first quarter of 2015.
Gigabyte has just introduced the 990XA-UD3 R5 Socket AM3+ motherboard, this is their first AM3+ motherboard in a long while. The board is built in the ATX form factor and gets power from a combination of 24pin ATX and 8pin EPS connector. It features a 10-phase VRM, although it does not support AMD’s FX-9000 series processors.
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards is proud to announce today the addition of 4 new high performance motherboards to their comprehensive Intel X99 chipsets offering with the X99 Champion series. The new motherboards consist of the X99-Gaming 5P, X99-UD4P, X99-UD3P and the already famous X99-SOC Champion.
The first pictures of Gigabyte’s GeForce 960 G1 Gaming graphics card has been revealed. The card follows in the footsteps of previous G1 Gaming cards from Gigabyte. The card will carry a factory overclock and a hefty cooling solution.
While there was not a whole lot of motherboard news to come out of CES this year, Gigabyte did have a brand new motherboard to show us. It was the X99-SOC Champion motherboard and it is specifically designed for overclockers.
