Gigabyte has been producing G1-Killer branded motherboards for every platform since X58, targeted at gamers and power users. Is the feature-packed Sniper 5 worth the considerable premium over regular Z87 motherboards?
Gigabyte shows it designed its G1. Assassin 3 motherboard with gamers in mind through an impressive library of features.
Gigabyte has updated its BRIX mini-PC and fitted it with Intel’s dual-core hyper-threading Haswell processors, delivering “stunning visuals and edge-of-your-seat performance in an ultra-small package.”
sTec will be acquired by HGST, which was bought out by Western Digital just over a year ago. sTec’s agreement to merge with HGST is considered a wise decision since the company already sells the ULTRASTAR enterprise SSD line. Currently there are no SSDs under the Western Digital brand name. sTec specializes with solid-state drives
Gigabyte took us on a full two-hour walkthrough long of their exclusive Computex showcase on the 36th floor of the iconic Taipei 101 tower. Here are some of the highlights…
AMD APUs typically have some “free” core frequency headroom (tops out around 5GHz on air) that can make the experience more palatable, in exchange for more heat output and power. One of the gripes I have about the mini-ITX form factor and AMD motherboards in general is the lack of overclocking dexterity due to the use
Gigabyte has introduced the S10A, a tablet which features AMD’s A4-1200 Temash processor.
Before the upcoming arrival of the new Haswell Shark Bay motherboards and socket refresh, we look at Gigabyte's top of the line Z77X-UP7, which is one of the few premium Z77 boards that supports 4-way GPU operation for the well heeled Ivy Bridge enthusiast.
Our 2nd IDF Beijing sighting of the day – pretty much the same last year's Z77N-WIFI (dual Gigabit LAN, mPCIe wireless with Bluetooth/WiFi/WiDi) from Gigabyte, except with a different socket (LGA 1150) and PCH (Z87). Lets just hope it has OC voltage controls this time…
Today we have something fresh and different in our labs, the Gigabyte X79S-UP5-WiFi. The name of this board is deceiving as it is not based on an X79 Express but on a C606 chipset instead, effectively making it a hybrid between an enthusiast's motherboard and a workstation product. We will be examining its features, speed
The Geforce GTX 650 Ti is based on the GK106 die used in the GTX 660 but with some organs removed. Is it still enough to take you on the DirectX 11 virtual battlefield?
Gigabyte's latest mid range Z77 entrant is endowed with an excellent VRM implementation (IR3550 PowIRstage from International Rectifier) and two onboard Thunderbolt ports provided by a Intel Cactus Ridge 4C controller. Does the Z77X-UP5 TH impress the Ivy Bridge system builder?
Nvidia's Kepler, although arriving much later to the 28nm game, has proven itself to be a credible competitor to the Southern Islands offerings of AMD, excelling in mainstream gaming performance and energy efficiencies. What happens if you take the already cut-down 7 SMX units in the GK104 die of GTX 670 and further curtail its
These things that you cant really play… We test the effects of resolution scaling, graphical detail, computationally heavy GPGPU tests and do some power/price analysis at the end.
The way its meant to be played… or gaming evolved? We run through the performance of the different game engines behind some of the popular titles today to see the effects of memory bandwidth and clock speed scaling on contemporary GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
Gigabyte showed off their new flagship Z77 motherboard, Z77X-UP7 which comes with a supermassive 32-phase power design. It is also one of the first boards on Ultra Durable 5 technology featuring the new International Rectifier IR3550 VRMs.
There were a plethora of interesting devices on show during the Intel Thunderbolt media event just now, which was held at the Taipei's premier shopping mall Bellavita. We spotted some never seen before and upcoming ASRock/Gigabyte motherboards with new Cactus Ridge 4C controller, MSI's external PCIe graphics that was shown during CES and debuting products from the
How about a 975g Ultrabook? Sounds tempting doesn't it, at least if you're a road warrior that spend a lot of time travelling with your notebook. The good news is that Gigabyte's X11 Ultrabook officially weighs in at 975g, although the model at the launch event came in even lighter at 973g,
G.Skill has organized a "World-Class Overclocking Invitational" at their Nangang booth during the Computex Taipei 2012 show days, featuring international superstars like Kingp|n and Elmor from leading manufacturers ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte and EVGA.
Gigabyte's OEM motherboard division has been busy churning out new products and one of its latest additions is the MSQ77DI, a mini-ITX motherboard based on Intel's Q77 chipset. The board is sadly not intended for end-user sales, as it's made to go into white-box All-in-One or AIO systems, but it's still a pretty interesting little
