Gigabyte showcases Aorus motherboards using X570 chipsets
     Thu, May 30 2019 | 3:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Gigabyte Technology has unveiled several flagship motherboards using AMD's X570 chipsets under its Aorus gaming brand at Computex 2019.

The motherboards feature 16-phase digital power design using Infineon's solution for the overclocking of AMD's new 7nm third-generation Ryzen processors.

They are also equipped with Gigabyte's Fins-Array heatsink, Direct Touch heatpipe and nanocarbon baseplate to improve the motherboards' heat dissipation.

Commenting on the global motherboard/graphics card market, executive vice president of Aorus Brand Marketing Eddie Lin pointed out that despite the weakening of the traditional motherboard market, demand from new applications including embedded devices, industrial PC (IPC) and Internet of Things (IoT), has started picking up and most players have already crossed into those markets looking for growth.

The graphics card market was seriously undermined by the quick disappearance of cryptocurrency mining demand last year. But Gigabyte's inventory has already returned to a safe level, according to industry sources."

MSI MEG Z390 ACE Motherboard Review
     Tue, May 14 2019 | 3:52P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Z390 platform continues to be a firm favourite with the DIY enthusiast audience, in large part because of the excellent performance delivered by the Core i9 9900K. That processor, however, is more power-hungry than its predecessors and motherboard vendors have necessarily responded with higher-end power circuitry. MSI’s Enthusiast Gaming (MEG) ACE motherboard crystallises this approach with 12 phases purely aimed at powering all eight cores with overclocking.

Gigabyte Z390 Aorus WaterForce Build
     Fri, May 03 2019 | 6:57P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme WaterForce is the most expensive gaming motherboard we have ever heard of, with a price around £950 that makes even the MSI MEG Z390 Godlike look like a bargain buy. The key feature of the Z390 WaterForce is, as the name suggests, the monoblock that covers the CPU socket, VRMs, chipset and M.2 SSD slots. We are familiar with monoblocks made by specialist cooling companies such as EKWB, however this block is produced in-house by Gigabyte themselves.

EVGA Z390 FTW Motherboard Review
     Thu, Apr 25 2019 | 12:26P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA’s motherboards have long held a strong following within the PC DIY community. EVGA maintains a relatively small motherboard portfolio by the standards of its competitors, just a handful of motherboards per chipset, containing models specifically for overclockers and gamers alike. EVGA simply does not do a “low-end” or “entry-level” motherboard for Z390, as the Z390 FTW intends to demonstrate.

MSI MEG Z390 Godlike Motherboard Review
     Wed, Apr 17 2019 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may seem a bit late to the Z390 party, especially since most of the guests have already gone home. However, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this MSI motherboard, so we’re just going to say it was fashionably late. As one of the most tricked-out motherboards this generation, this ultra-high-end solution comes with more features that I doubt even this review will be able to capture. It’s not cheap, but at the same time, you’re paying (a lot) more, but you’re getting a lot more stuff included too. It’s a bit more than your typical Fortnite 1080p gaming rig would need, that’s for sure, but if you’re all about the extreme, read on, as this one is going to be pretty special.
