Gigabyte Unveils Compact BRIX Gaming GT Desktop

With CES closing in on us in the next week, early tech announcements have been rapidly circulating online and one of the most interesting is Gigabyte’s BRIX platform with the addition of the GB-GZ1DTi7-1070-NK-GW and the GB-GZ1DTi7-1080-NK-GW.

With a physical footprint of just 276 mm x 384 mm x 128 mm, the Gigabyte BRIX GT series is in competition with the Asus G20 and MSI Vortex, both of which offer stellar performance within a tiny package. In order to combat the cooling limitations of such a high performance build in such a small package, the BRIX GT case features automated vents that balance noise and air flow similar to how the ASUS G20’s front [...]

Review: Gigabyte X99P SLI LGA 2011-3 Motherboard

Gigabyte’s Mid-Range X99 Motherboard

When Intel launched the Broadwell-E platform earlier this year, Intel’s X99 chipset saw a surge in interest as many users became interested in upgrading their systems which required a suitable motherboard to match. Today we have an X99 platform motherboard that sits at below the $250 pricepoint and has the features to keep up with most users needs.

Today we’ll be reviewing the Gigabyte X99P SLI which is a motherboard that falls into the $200 range with a fairly extensive list of features making it quite competitive on paper.

The original X99 SLI motherboard from Gigabyte was priced at the $200 price point but [...]

Gigabyte Updates BRIX Mini-PC Lineup with Intel 7th Gen Kaby Lake CPUs

According to a recent announcement, Gigabyte is updating their popular BRIX barebones mini-PC lineup to support Inte’s new 7th Generation Kaby Lake CPUs. The updated models will feature the Intel Core i3 7100, Intel Core i5 7200 or the Intel Core i7 7500. One of the biggest features of Intel’s new CPU is Intel’s Turbo Boost 2.0 which dynamically boosts performance and graphics when needed and saving energy/keeping temperatures low when it’s not. More information about Intel Kaby Lake can be found in our previous coverage here.

Gigabyte also modernized the BRIX as well, now including HDMI2.0 and support for HDCP 2.2. With the new system, [...]

Gigabyte Releases GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo OC Edition Graphics Card

Gigabyte has just popped the lid off of its newest creation, the GeForce GTX1080 Turbo OC Edition Graphics card (GV-N1080TTOC-8GD).

Unlike your typical AIB custom designed card, this hot new card comes with a custom built blower-style cooler that sucks air in from inside your case and pushes it out the back. Under the shroud sits a matrix of aluminum cooling fins and 3 direct touch heat pipes which Gigabyte claims will improve cooling performance by 8%. The new pattern design on the custom shroud also adds a splash of color to the typically boring looking blower cooler style shrouds as well.

Specifications align with what you’d expect from a [...]

How to Find Your Motherboard’s Manufacturer, Model, and BIOS Version

Get to Know Your PC

As a PC owner, one of the most important things to know is the manufacturer, model and BIOS version of the motherboard you have in your system. This is one of the first questions I ask people when they ask me if they can upgrade their system or when they ask me for help because something isn’t working correctly. The motherboard is the one piece of hardware in your system that interconnects everything else so any hardware upgrades will need to be compatible with the motherboard. Depending on the motherboard manufacturer and how active they are on updates, the motherboard’s internal software, or BIOS/UEFI, also needs to be upgrade to support newer [...]

GIGABYTE Announces Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming Graphics Cards

Earlier this week, Gigabyte took the wraps off their Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming graphics cards, which both feature a fully non-reference design. The cards are available in both 4GB and 8GB models, meaning Gigabyte aims to accommodate multiple price segments.

GIGABYTE RX 480 G1 GAMING

Both the 4GB and 8GB models include Gigabyte’s well-known WINDFORXE 2X cooling system, which features a dual two 90 mm fans which are paired with three copper heat pipes which have direct contact with the GPU for increased heat dissipation. Airflow is enhanced by a unique fan blade design which Gigabyte claims will increase cooling capacity by as much as 23% while keeping noise to a [...]

Computex 2016: Gigabyte Motherboards Updated for X99, Z170 unveiled

During our stay at Computex we stopped by the Gigabyte suite and took a look at their motherboards.

GA-X99 Designare EX

The Designare series is a class of motherboards aimed at those looking for productivity, which is a very interesting step from Gigabyte. While very similar to their “Gaming” focused boards, this one has a focus on faster storage with dual SATA Express slots and support for U.2 and M.2 storage under the white shroud. It also supports the new Broadwell-E 10 core with a beefy 8+1 phase power design, which we would assume is from International Rectifier. Gigabyte boasts that with this board it won’t take a professional overclocker to get [...]

Computex 2016: Gigabyte Factory Tour

For Computex 2016, we had the opportunity to tag along with Gigabyte to tour their Taiwan factory. Gigabyte’s pretty excited to show us exactly why they’re so confident in the quality of their motherboards.

Gigabyte’s factory in Taiwan is actually located in Nan Ping. It covers an area of 45,000 square meters and while it’s a relatively large factory, it isn’t the biggest factory Gigabyte owns. Gigabyte also has two more factories in mainland China, with the biggest being 60,000 square meters. This is however perceived as the “premium” factory as many OEMs specifically request components manufactured in Taiwan instead [...]
