Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition Processor and DX58SO2 Motherboard Reviewed
     Fri, Aug 26 2011 | 1:28A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, we had a look at INTEL’s Core i7 980XE CPU which was quite the spectacle being that it was the company’s first six core processor. On the other hand, the launch for Intel’s Core i7-990XE was seemed like one of the quietest launches ever. But we have it here now and we also have their revision to the original X58 Extreme Series motherboard, the DX58SO “Smack Over”. They call it the “Smack Over 2? and this latest revision carryes USB 3.0 and SATA3. Let’s see how the new revisions fair in today’s hot X58 motherboard and CPU market!

GIGABYTE X58A-OC LGA1366 ATX Extreme Overclocking Motherboard Review
     Fri, Aug 26 2011 | 1:13A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Various DDR3 memory kits are often marketed for setting some kind of MHz record. Even video cards carry the overclock (OC) moniker, yet most users don’t really do that with them. But every motherboard seems to advertise overclocking, yet only GIGABYTE hasn’t shied away from this extremely niche market. That’s why they’ve stepped it up by introducing the X58A-OC. It’s a board that is marketed straight to extreme overclockers and excels whether using air, water, or liquid nitrogen for cooling. The goal with this board is to help you overclock the living juice out of your Intel Core i7 LGA1366 processor.

Gigabyte Z68X-UD7-B3 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 11:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Z68X-UD7-B3 is Gigabyte’s flagship mainboard for the Intel socket 1155 Z68 chipset lineup. Gigabyte gave the Z68X-UD7-B3 an identical layout to the P67A-UD7-B3 as most of the changes are under the hood. Like all Z68 motherboards, the Gigabyte Z68X-UD7-B3 is capable of using Intel’s new Smart Response Technology which implements storage I/O caching to improve storage response times for traditional hard disk drives. Unlike some Z68 motherboards however, the Gigabyte Z68X-UD7-B3 does not have any display outputs on the rear I/O, thus is incapable of utilizing Intel’s revolutionary QuickSync technology."

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 11:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this month GIGABYTE invited us over to check out both the Z68X-UD7-B3 and Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboards in Taiwan. Because the preview on the GIGABYTE boards wasn't done in house and didn't include the contents of the package nor our standard photo line-up, we'll be covering the board as we would normally cover one that we hadn't previewed. That means that we'll start by looking at the box itself before looking at the actual contents of the package. Once that's done we'll have a good look around the motherboard to cover the location of all those important connectors while also covering some of the main features. Once that's done, we'll check out the BIOS and we'll also do something a little different today and cover the new Touch BIOS that GIGABYTE has been heavily promoting."

Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 10:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at Gigabyte's mid-range Z68 board entitled the Z68X-UD3H. Granted, the Z68 is not much more than hyped up hybrid version of the P67+H67 chipsets, but unlike most things you think of that are hybrid it is not some scaled back product. No sir, it pulls no punches and takes full advantage of what people have come to know the the P67 and H68 chipsets for, but also offering some new goodies like Intel's Smart Response Technology and the new Lucid Virtu software. Read on as we explore one of Gigabyte's entrants to the Z68, while see if it stacks up to all we hope and expect from it.

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H and Z68X-UD7 (Intel Z68) Taiwan Preview
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 10:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"GIGABYTE has been extremely aggressive with the new Z68 chipset and it's very much out with the old and in with the new. Over the past few weeks the GIGABYTE Z68 boards have been the ones to show up a lot in corner stores for sale. And after hearing that they hope to achieve 80% of channel stocking at launch, it makes sense. GIGABYTE have been in there words "aggressively stocking the channel with Z68 MBs for weeks now." In no doubt a bit of a gentlemen's agreement, they send to their distributors who send to the retail channel. GIGABYTE hope that it stops there until May 11 when the curtain is lifted on the new chipset and at that point the retail stores are ready to go. Unfortunately one store decides to sell beforehand and then someone else does and someone else does; you essentially get a snow ball effect of companies selling a product early."

Gigabyte Z68X UD7 B3 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 10:13P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first motherboards we received after the Sandy Bridge launch the Gigabyte P67A-UD7 and we almost instantly fell in love with the board. Sadly were we unable to get the review posted before the worldwide chipset recall but we did spend a considerable amount of time tweaking and tuning the board and even posted some very impressive numbers for the HWBot team.

GIGABYTE Z68X UD4 Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 9:58P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CONTENT: So what do we get from GIGABYTE if the video outputs aren’t present? Well with the Z68 chipset we have the new Touch BIOS, SSD caching and we have been told – better overclocking. So today we will be putting the Z68-UD4 on our test bench and putting it through its paces within synthetic and gaming benchmarks in order to reveal to our readers whether there is any great advantage of moving to this new chipset over P67.

GIGABYTE Z68-UD4 Preview
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 9:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With only a few days to go here is a quick preview of one of the Z68 motherboards we are working on at Vortez. GIGABYTE redesigned their motherboards this year with the introduction of Sandy Bridge and now endorse a stealthy black paintjob on all major ports, sockets and lanes with subtle undertones of matt grey on the heatsink.

GIGABYTE X58A-OC Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 9:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some people believe that the X58 chipset is dead and buried. While it is clear that many enthusiasts are heading towards Z68 and P67 based motherboards, like some mass exodus, there are those who still believe that X58 still has a lot to offer. GIGABYTE have been at the forefront with regard to X58 motherboards releasing some excellent examples such as the magnificent GA-X58 UD3R and UD5 along with the ultra-gaming platform catering for multi GPUs, the UD9. They have continued this excellent repertoire more recently with some stunning quality motherboards of late, namely the G1 Guerrilla Sniper and Assassin boards. The motherboard we have for review today however is something even more special, even more niche, which has one unique selling point and one group in mind...overclockers.

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 Motherboard Feature Preview
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 7:13P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Z68 is a very strange chipset in that it combines the overclocking features of the P67 and graphical features of the H67 into a single chipset. They have also added some key technologies that help differentiate it from the versions and make it better at the same time.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
