Gigabyte AORUS Gaming 3 X299 Motherboard Review

Gigabyte AORUS Gaming 3

We’re back on our X299 test bench today, with the glorious looking Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 3 motherboard. This high-end motherboard comes with support for the latest Intel Skylake-X processors, including the new i9-7900X. While we’ve already tested the extremely powerful and feature-packed Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9, at £299, the Gaming 3 is around £200 cheaper than its big brother! Will that big price difference give us a big difference in performance? We’re certainly eager to find out!

This motherboard may not have as many features as the Gaming 9, however, it’s not exactly lacking in features either. With support for 8 x DDR4 DIMMs, USB Type C and A, Optane Support, RGB lighting, M.2 and more, it’s sure to be a great start to any high-end gaming PC.
