GIGABYTE Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi AMD Ryzen Mobo Review

GIGABYTE is one of the world’s largest and most well-known manufacturers of computer components and motherboards. GIGABYTE was founded in 1986 and has grown into one of the most influential, successful, and well-known motherboard manufacturers in the world. GIGABYTE isn’t unique in this regard, as several of its competitors were founded around the same time. We have seen many motherboard makers come and go over the years, but three of the most successful motherboard manufacturers are the ones founded around this time. GIGABYTE is a bit of an odd duck. In my experience, GIGABYTE has often made some unusual choices regarding integrated features and motherboards, and even stranger choices regarding its aesthetic design for many of its products.  "

Gigabyte Z370N WIFI review

In this review we test the petite Gigabyte Z370N WIFI motherboard, this Mini ITX Form Factor based measures just 17x17cm, yet is as fast as its bigger bethrens. We'll pair it with the new six-core Core i7 8700K. Will it perform as fast as the more expensive SKUs? Well, heck yeah. First a note, this review has been performed with the CPU bug patch, however, Gigabyte does not have its BIOSes updated. Performance might differ on CPU and more importantly, 4K NVMe SSD in the future. Yes, we test the new Coffee Lake platform. Coffee Lake is the 8th generation desktop processors from Intel, including the new mainstream six-core part. A product line that is the direct answer and effect from what AMD has been pursuing aggressively in the desktop processor channel. With this first 'mainstream' step from Intel, they will offer 6-core processors. These will need to be paired with a new motherboard chipset and thus motherboard, the Z370 based ranges.  "

Gigabyte Aorus AC300W ATX Mid-Tower review

We review the Gigabyte AC300W ATX Mid-Tower PC case. Designed with the usage of Gigabyte components in mind the chassis the case is released within the premium Aorus series of products. The casing is tagged VR ready and comes with customizable RGB Fusion functionality. We have a changing enthusiast PC landscape with features like backplate cut-outs, many water cooling options and alongside the wide RGB hype, RGB fans, strips, and controllers. The Aorus AC300W chassis comes with a front-side HDMI connector that you can lead directly towards the HDMI output at the backside of some of their graphics cards.  "

Gigabyte P56XT

The P56XT is covered in matte black metal, and the lid is only decorated with a smart Gigabyte logo. The main unit has narrow lines of orange down each of its sides, and the same colour is used on the power button and the hinges – and that’s it. There aren’t any unnecessary RGB LEDs, or air vents that look like they’re borrowed from stealth bombers or alien spaceships. It’s a similar design decision that underpinned the Medion Erazer X7849, which costs £1,749 and offers similarly subtle aesthetics inside a 15.6in frame.  "

Gigabyte Aero 15X – Review

Gigabyte’s latest laptop is made from dark, machined aluminium, with subtle logos and a strip of carbon-fibre detailing near the hinge. There are RGB LEDs in the keyboard, but that’s it – there’s no extra ornamentation. That’s in stark contrast to the Aero’s biggest rival – another machine from Gigabyte. The P56XT is a 15.6in laptop with the same core specification as this machine, and a lower price of £1,844. That machine has orange accents, chunkier air vents and a full 15.6in frame, so it’s more imposing. The Aero’s understated design shifts focus to the screen. Gigabyte has used a 15.6in panel in this machine, but the Aero’s exterior is built for 14in panels. That means the Gigabyte’s bezel is just 5mm thick – which means the top half of this machine really is almost all monitor.  "

Gigabyte Z370N WiFi

Intel's consumer CPU focus in the first half of 2017 has been on maximising the efficiency of its laptop chips. We can argue for this point because, lately, most of the firm's innovation has been centred on the U-series. Now offering four cores and eight threads hewn from the Kaby Lake architecture, these 15W silicon supremos put desktop efficiency to shame. The enthusiast and DIY market has had something to shout about at last, though. You see, the chip giant debuted 8th Generation Core Coffee Lake-based chips just last month, packing up to six cores and 12 threads at similar thermal and wattage levels as the previous generation. But getting your hands on such a platform also requires investing in a Z370 chipset motherboard, meaning it's a clean break, as the 7th Generation Core processors won't work in the new platform.  "

GIGABYTE Aorus AX370-Gaming 5 Review

Today we are having a look at a LED-laden, gaming-focused, ATX motherboard from GIGABYTE: the Aorus AX370-Gaming 5. If a user wants LEDs for Ryzen at under $200, here is one of the primary contenders. Being part of GIGABYTE's gaming product line means we get SLI support, and GIGABYTE is using a gaming-focused network controller (one of two) and some overclocking options for the processor. The interesting part of this board, however, is the use of dual audio codecs: one for the rear panel and one for the front panel. To physically do this requires a couple of compromises, so we have put the board through its paces to see if it is worth buying.  "

Gigabyte X399 DESIGNARE EX review

For this review, we take the 16-cores Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and pair it with that all new Gigabyte X399 DESIGNARE EX. A board that is unique in its design and looks, hence that name. The motherboard was released a few days ago for the TR4 platform. Threadripper processors do not only offer many CPU cores and threads, they also offer quad channel memory compatibility as well as 64 PCI-Express Generation 3.0 lanes on the processor alone. That last fact opens up a tremendous amount of possibilities for any motherboard manufacturer, as restrictions are lifted since there is plenty of bandwidth to work with. Well, leave it up-to Gigabyte to design something intricate and tasteful, they designed a motherboard that is going completely off the chart when we talk features. Triple M2 SSDs (full x4 PCIe Gen 3), a U2 connector, how about eight DIMM channels.  "

Gigabyte AORUS RX 580 XTR 8 GB

Earlier this year AMD launched the Radeon RX 580 leading the new RX 500 series of graphics cards, which continues to be based on the 4th generation Graphics CoreNext architecture, aka "Polaris," but is not exactly a rebrand of the RX 480. The underlying ASIC is the same Ellesmere GPU as on the RX 480 as it comes with the same transistors, but boasts manufacturing improvements. This means that the core configuration of the two is identical, but the RX 580 is able to run at higher clock speeds. Gigabyte's AORUS RX 580 XTR is the company's highest-clocked RX 580 variant. It also features a revamped PCB with a dual-fan thermal solution. Pricing is currently in flux due to the mining craze  "

Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5

Surprisingly, even though we covered a whole list of Z270 motherboards after Intel’s launch, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that we ended up with any ITX boards. The first ITX Z270 board to come into the office is the Z270N Gaming 5 from Gigabyte. This is their higher end ITX offering. It has a touch of orange in its styling and I’m excited to see what Gigabyte has to offer the LAN rig and higher end SFF build market so today I’m going to check out its features then take a quick look at the performance.  "
