Gigabyte Motherboards, Laptops, Monitors @ CES 2020
Peter Donnell / 12 months ago
Gigabyte didn’t quite have a huge showing at CES 2020, but that’s to be expected. There are no big motherboard, CPU, or even graphics card launches for them right now. There’s a few odds and bobs though, such as their latest AORUS motherboards. Admittedly, they’re refreshed and updates, but that doesn’t make them any less awesome.
First up, the X299X AORUS XTREME Waterforce. This is their flagship workstation/enthusiast motherboard. It features a 16 phase IR VRM with 70A power stage. OF course, you get legendary connectivity too, with AQUANTIA 10GbE, 802.11ax, etc. LEt’s not forget the world first AORUS all-in-one monoblock for the CPU, VRM, SSD and PCH!
The liquid model not for you? Then how about the Designare 10G! Available for Intel as the X299X or Threadripper as the X399 EX. It’s as good as they come, with robust power delivery, massive heat sinks, fantastic connectivity options and armoured… everything! Plus it looks super slick despite being rather complicated.
The new beast to the show, however, is their latest TRX40 AORUS XTREME. This is build for the latest generation of Threadripper CPUs. It has that active chipset cooler design, but a much-enlarged heatsink shield keeps things looking super clean. It uses a 16+3 phase design, and their 8mm mega-heatpipe and NanoCarbon backplate to keep everything operating at maximum efficiency.
Gigabyte/AORUS may have already dipped into the world of ultra-fast storage. However, this is the first time I’ve seen their own RAM on show. IT looks great too, just a simple and clean design that’ll look stunning in their motherboard. Bravo for not just sticking RGB on it and acting like you make something unique.
The RTX 2080 SUPER Gaming OC Waterforce WB. I absolutely love this thing, just a really good quality block, but the design matches up with the AORUS and GIGABYTE product range design really well.
