One of the more reliable sources for leaked information on unannounced graphics cards is the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website, as companies register their products in anticipation of a pending launch. So what does the EEC website reveal to us today? According to a recent listing by Gigabyte, we have semi-confirmation that AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT will ship with 12GB of GDDR6 memory, as previously rumored. Of course, nothing is ever truly confirmed until it is real, or in this case, until AMD says so. But in lieu of those things, these types of leaks will have to suffice. That said, this one is not hard to believe—the information in the listing is in line with prior leaks,... Read more...
Intel is on the cusp of releasing its 11th Gen Core processors for the desktop, otherwise known as Rocket Lake-S, and motherboard makers are waiting in the wings for the big day. Biostar, for example, just announced a couple of flashy looking Z590 motherboards, one of which you can see above. Biostar is far from alone, however, as all the major players have new stuff on the horizon. Biostar Starting with Biostar, the company today announced the Z590 Valkyrie and Z590I Valkyrie. Both of them bring the bling, though the former is a full-size ATX motherboard, while the latter is a mini-ITX offering for small form factor (SFF) builds. They each feature a "fully armored cover design" with passive... Read more...
Ever since AMD introduced its Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 desktop processors and X570 platform in 2019, we’ve been seeing a steady stream of PCIe 4.0-based SSDs flood the market. The first PCIe 4.0 SSDs featured sequential read speeds that topped 5GB/sec, which far outpaced the fastest PCIe 3.0 SSDs available at the time. Over the past few months, second-generation PCIe 4.0 SSDs have entered the market which have cranked read and write speed even further. The latest to enter the fray is Gigabyte with its new Aorus Gen4 7000s SSDs. As you might have presumed from the model number, Gigabyte claims that this SSD can hit sequential read speeds that top 7,000MB/sec. Gigabyte can achieve this... Read more...
We are eagerly anticipating all of the new PC hardware announcements that are around the bend, many of which will be shouted out at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week. Will Intel introduce its 11th Gen Core processor lineup (otherwise known as Rocket Lake-S)? Time will tell, but interestingly, what appears to be official press render of Gigabyte's upcoming Z590 Aorus Xtreme motherboard has popped up online. If you have not been following the CPU scene all that closely, Intel has already confirmed some details about its next-gen CPUs. According to Intel, its Rocket Lake-S chips will deliver a double-digit gain in IPC (instructions per clock) performance, while also introducing PCI Express... Read more...

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is reportedly set to launch on December 2nd, which is just a couple of days away. We've already seen a ton of information leak concerning the newest budget entry in NVIDIA's Ampere family of GPUs, and there has been a considerable number of leaked specs that have made their way to the internet. But today, we actually have a look at a card that was delivered to a customer ahead of schedule. In this case, we're getting a look at the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GAMING OC. This is a 2-slot design with triple fans and a single 8-pin power connector. The card has an aluminum heatsink and a full cover backplate (with included cutouts for improved airflow) according to...

AMD launched its Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT to the public last week, and as expected, they represented quite the performance leap over their Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT predecessors. More importantly, the cards traded blows with NVIDIA new GeForce RTX 30 Series. While neither company's cards offer an absolute knockout performance over the other, this is AMD's first competitive effort at the high-end in years. With this in mind, the first custom, third-party graphics cards based around the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT have been announced. There are a plethora of cards from Gigabyte, PowerColor, Sapphire, and ASRock to kick things off. Gigabyte Gigabyte is hopping... Read more...
It appears that what we are witnessing here is the very first custom GeForce RTX 3060 Ti cards. In fact, these are actually the very first GeForce RTX 3060 Ti cards of any type that we've seen in the world, and they come to us from Gigabyte. The new cards were first spotted by @momomo_us, who is a notorious hardware leaker on Twitter, on the Saudi Arabian retail site Silicon Valley. So far, we know that Gigabyte will have at least two versions of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti available: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Eagle RGB 8G Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC Edition RGB 8G Both of these cards feature triple fans, and according to the product specs, 4864 CUDA cores along...

AMD made a splash last week by announcing its Ryzen 5000 series of CPUs based on Zen 3, with up to 16 cores and 32 threads, and a huge IPC (instructions per clock) uplift. What it did not do, however, is announce a new chipset. Whether one is coming or not for Zen 3 remains to be seen, but armed with the latest BIOS update for your X570, B550, or A520 motherboard, you should be able to POST with a Zen 3 CPU. In case you missed it, Zen 3 represents a 'take no prisoners' lineup. Core for core, Intel has generally maintained a lead in single-threaded workloads, and has held an advantage in overall gaming performance. That was before Zen 3 came along. If AMD's numbers and claims are correct, the... Read more...
Give it some time and NVIDIA will undoubtedly flesh out its GeForce RTX 30 series with more SKUs, though what exactly it has up its sleeve may depend on how AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series launch goes. Regardless, though, it seems increasingly like that there will be a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. The latest evidence of this unreleased SKU being on the roadmap comes from several Gigabyte listings with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Before we get to those listings, let's quickly recap there things stand. After launching Ampere to the machine learning sector with its A100, NVIDIA turned its attention to home consumers with three initial GeForce models, including the GeForce RTX 3090 ($1,499),...

Yesterday, we brought you news that a 20GB version of the GeForce RTX 3080 is likely on the way, doubling the amount of onboard GDDR6X that is in currently-shipping cards. The news came straight from the horse's mouth, NVIDIA, via an Ampere GA102 GPU architecture whitepaper. Now we're getting further confirmation via one of NVIDIA's trusted OEM partners: Gigabyte. The company is currently running a promotion, which was first spotted by Videocardz, where those that purchase a GeForce RTX 3080 card can get a free copy of Watch Dogs Legion by entering in their purchase details and device serial number on its website. This is pretty standard fare for graphics card manufacturers, but... Read more...
Gigabyte, manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has unveiled its first “tactical gaming” monitor. We do not know what tactical gaming is, but we do know the Aorus FI25F is a 1080p SuperSpeed IPS gaming monitor to power gamers’ needs. First off, let’s talk specs on this monitor. Using Gigabyte SuperSpeed IPS technology, this monitor can achieve response times of .04ms and a 240Hz refresh rate while serving up good color and picture quality thanks to DisplayHDR 400 certification. The FI25F also has AMD FreeSync technology inside, so you do not have to worry about screen tearing. With its 24.5” screen, it will be a good fit for gamers with smaller desks... Read more...
Here is a little fun fact about technology journalism—the Consumer Electronics Show is typically the busiest time of the year for tech writers, while April Fool's Day is the most challenging. Why the latter? Gag announcement abounds, and in the wild world of technology, it's not always easy to separate the silliness from the real stuff. Case in point—is NVIDIA giving its add-in board (AIB) partners the green light to outfit GeForce GTX 1650 graphics cards with GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR5? It sure seems that way. There have been multiple leaks and rumors suggesting as much, and as April Fool's Day has rolled into view, some retailer listings highlighting a pair of upgraded models... Read more...
PAX East is chock full of dazzling sights and sounds. One of the crown jewels was a series of custom-built PCs showcased by Gigabyte's Aorus sub-brand. The seven systems were designed and built by either an enthusiast community member or a professional modder. Aorus contributed parts but otherwise allowed the creators to execute on their vision. We caught up with one of the builders, Kevin Tabor from Mod My Mods, who gave us an overview of each of the systems. The builds span a wide range of stylings. There are a couple systems with minuscule footprints and others in massive towers. One system uses the aggressive stylings of the Cougar Conquer chassis while others float free in open air frames....

Gigabyte has promoted its line of Designare motherboards aimed at creative professionals for quite some time, but now the company is ready to extend the brand to its memory kits. As such, Gigabyte has announced the Designare 64GB RAM kit, which will be available worldwide shortly. Gigabyte is hitting 64GB by using just two 32GB DDR4-3200 modules with CAS timings of 16-18-18-38 at 1.35V. Loaded up in one of its high-end Designare motherboards with 8 DIMM slots, and you're looking at a maximum capacity of 256GB. Each module is decked out with anodized aluminum heatsinks emblazoned with the Designare logo, and Gigabyte is promising a limited lifetime warranty. These new modules will find a perfect...

Motherboard makers can ill afford to let their foot off the gas pedal, not when there are now chipsets on the horizon. Intel is readying its Z490 chipset for its upcoming Comet Lake-S processors, while AMD is apparently prepping a B550 chipset for its Ryzen 3000 series. Meanwhile, Gigabyte is locked and loaded for both launches. Starting with the Z490 chipset, several Gigabyte-brand models were spotted at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website back in September. They included the following models... Z490 Aorus Elite Z490 D Z490 Gaming X Z490 UD Z490 White Z490M Z490M DS3H Z490M Gaming X Since then, there have been several new models listed at the EEC, including a few more that just showed...

I remember a time not all that long ago when the PC monitor market had grown rather stagnant. In more recent years, monitor makers have hit their stride by focusing on gaming features, like G-Sync and FreeSync, high refresh rates, and other enthusiast-oriented bells and whistles. As such, Gigabyte is expanding its growing monitor lineup with three new models sporting some tantalizing features. Gigabyte is best known for its motherboards and graphics cards, though it entered the gaming monitor market last year through its Aorus division. Now it's introducing a Gigabyte gaming series (read: non-Aorus). "The monitors received much positive feedback and have been selected as 2019’s best gaming... Read more...
By now, enthusiasts know the benefits of the PCIe 4.0 interface, especially when it comes to solid state drives (SSDs). For the past six months, we've seen a number of manufacturers release PCIe 4.0 SSDs that can reach up to 5GB/sec sequential reads and 4.4GB/s sequential writes. One of the first manufacturers to jump onboard was Gigabyte with its AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD using a Phison controller. Today, however, we got to see first-hand how Gigabyte has tuned its Aorus Gen4 AIC Adaptor to achieve even higher performance in 4-way RAID. Back in late May, Gigabyte was hitting speeds of 15GB/s with four of its PCIe SSD in a RAID-0 array using the AIC Adaptor. Now, however, the company... Read more...
At long last, AMD came out at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and finally introduced the Radeon RX 5600 XT, a SKU that had been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors prior to the official unveiling. As expected, several of AMD's hardware partners flipped the switch on product pages with custom models sporting fancy cooling solutions and, in some cases, factory overclocks. In a moment, we will give a rundown of the various custom Radeon RX 5600 XT models that have actual product pages. In time, even more custom models will appear, but our focus here is on the ones that we know to be real. Before we do that, however, let's quickly recap the specs and features of the Radeon RX 5600 XT. AMD... Read more...

Sometime fairly soon (presumably), Gigabyte will be able to shout from a mountaintop, 'The Eagle has landed!' Or it could go the more traditional route and just issue a standard press release announcing its Radeon RX 5600 XT Eagle series of graphics cards. Either way, a Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) listing indicates the Eagle series is inbound. If you are confused and wondering if you missed an announcement for the Radeon RX 5600 XT in general, do not worry, you are not out of the loop. AMD has not yet formally introduced the upcoming card, which will join its 7-nanometer Navi product family. However, it's been the subject of rumors for several months, dating back to at least July of this... Read more...
