Gigabyte has unveiled a range of Intel Z370 chipset motherboards, built to support Intel's 8th generation Core processors (Coffee Lake). These eight new motherboards can be split into two sub-brands; there are the five Z370 Aorus Gaming boards, and three more generalist Gigabyte branded boards. Whichever you choose, Gigabyte says that its new Z370 motherboards are equipped with a server-grade digital power design for robust 8th gen Core processor support.
In its email to HEXUS, Gigabyte concentrated on the attractions of the Aorus Gaming branded boards. Gamers will be pleased with features such as the ESS Sabre DAC with Creative Sound BlasterX 720° software, Scout Radar (audio), Smart Fan 5 (with Fan Stop tech), RGB Fusion LED lighting, 4K UHD, uninterrupted streaming via HDCP 2.2 Technology, a HEVC 10-bit decoder, as well as a VP9 hardware decoder, thinks Gigabyte.
One of the most important features of the new motherboards, as highlighted by Gigabyte, is the efficient power delivery. We are told the Z370 Aorus Motherboards "utilize a new VRM and PWM design which is able to drive 60 amps per power phase as well as strengthen the signal between the processor and voltage regulator". In addition Gigabyte uses server-grade 10K Ultra Durable Black capacitors, reducing excess electrostatic charge on the PWMs, and improving efficiency between the CPU. Thanks to these changes the new range meets the standards of the California Energy Commission (CEC) as low power and high efficiency motherboards.
