Peter Donnell / 2 weeks ago
The new X299X Series Motherboards from Gigabyte are here at last. Based on X299, obviously, but with some healthy upgrades too. Feature up to a 16-phase digital power design. The GIGABYTE X299X motherboards prepare you for the flagship Intel Core X processors.
The new X299X stack features a trio of high-end models. The X299X DESIGNARE 10G. The X299 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE. Finally, the X299X AORUS MASTER. Obviously, these are targetted at the professional and extreme/enthusiast market, as are the new CPUs. Most consumers and high-end gamers will likely still stick with Z390.
Upgraded power delivery, thermal solutions, and efficiency. Of course, the addition of Thunderbolt 3, 5 Gbps or 10 Gbps networking, thermal guards, armour, and more. They’re built for the extreme end of PC usage, and build to withstand the stress.
What Gigabyte Had to Say
“Efficiency and reliability are at the top of the list for the needs of content creators but the versatility of a content creation focused workstation that can also be used a suitable gaming rig is also high in demand,” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. “To fulfill the needs of users and content creators alike, we are introducing three all-new X299X series motherboards with fully validated support for Quadro® Graphics Cards.
