Vortez comes to COMPUTEX 2019 at Taipei, Taiwan to check out the latest products and technologies from leading brands including GIGABYTE which we visited today. Some of the latest products demonstrated and showcased at the GIGABYTE booth include their line-up of AMD X570 motherboards, new GIGABYTE liquid CPU coolers, GIGABYTE’s AORUS PCIe Gen4 solid-state drives, all-new AERO Series gaming notebooks, and more.
GIGABYTE X570 Motherboard Line-upThe GIGABYTE introduced eight AMD X570 chipset-based motherboards for the third-generation AMD Ryzen processors which feature PCIe 4.0 support. We got a closer look at some of the models below. As of this writing, we know by now that most of the X570 motherboards, including GIGABYTE’s offerings, have a cooling fan on the PCH to cool the chipset except the X570 AORUS XTREME which remains to use passive cooling with its massive PCH heatsink with a connecting heat pipe to the VRM heatsink. The list of the eight released models are below.
