Gigabyte X299 Motherboards and More at Computex 2017

We’ve already seen some incredible new products from Gigabyte here at Computex 2017, and the best is yet to come! First up, we have their stunning X299 UD4 motherboard (pictured above). It comes with support for the latest X-series processors from Intel, Quad Channel unbuffer memory x 8, 3 x GPU, “server-class” power design, and so much more. Of course, with RGB, Smart Fan, multiple M.2 mounts, GbE lan, etc, it has all the features you would expect from the new flagship platform.
This new motherboard is pretty tricked out too, in fact, it has more armour than it has PCB! This heavily reinforced board is ready for the LGA2066 Xeon Class CPUs, supports x way SLI with Premium PCIe Lane. However, it can also support 7 x PCIe x 16 devices in 4 x 16, 1 x 6 6 x 8 format.There’s dual GbE LAN, NVMe support, and it’s obviously well suited to professional workstation builds.
We’ve seen this system before, but it just keeps on getting better and better! This tiny vertical system is no slouch in terms of performance and was demonstrated running VR gaming. It’s highly portable, and incredibly stylish. You wouldn’t think it has an Intel Core i7, GTX 1060, 2 x M.2, room for a 2.5″ SDD and much more, but it does!
The latest Gigabyte Aero 15 notebook. Joining what is easily one of the most desirable notebook ranges on the market today, this model features a stunning 15.6″ display. It uses their new X-Rite Pantone Certified Display, which features a tiny 5mm Bezel. At just 2.1kg and 1.9cm thick it may not be the slimmest or lightest in the world. However for a laptop of that size and weight, it comes with a Core i7, GTX 1060, three external display outputs, a FHD or UHD display, M.2 PCI x2, and a whopping 94 Wh battery; it’s a marvel of engineering.
The new Gigabyte Killer XTEND expansion card is pretty cool too. It uses 3x Killer E32500 chips, as well as their 1535 AC Wi-Fi module. If you’re gaming and don’t want your networking performance compromised, it could be a vital too for you.
