On April 30 at 10 AM PDT/1 PM EDT, Gigabyte is planning to stream a special event known as AORUS Direct on its YouTube. Nobody knows *what* specifically will be revealed just yet, but it looks like it’s going to be something big.

During AORUS Direct, Gigabyte is likely going to reveal some new top-notch motherboards that could hit the market soon. Though Gigabyte manufactures laptop devices and custom graphics cards, its production of motherboards is what the company is best known for. April 30, the company might just show off brand-new ones.

This could be exciting news for PC gamers. As the backbone of a computer, motherboards are one of the most important parts in any rig. And as the market for motherboards has become increasingly varied in recent years, as one of the largest motherboard manufacturers Gigabyte has been able to use its size to deliver a wide range of boards. These days motherboards don’t just vary in size – from towering EATX boards to tiny mini-ITX builds – but also ever-expanding feature sets such as USB Type-C ports, M.2 slots, Wi-Fi, and even RGB lighting controls.

As well, overclocking continues to remain popular, with performance-focused boards getting extra cooling and support for higher RAM speeds in order to maximize their performance potential. Based on what they’ve accomplished so far, whatever Gigabyte has to offer with a new line of motherboards should be pretty interesting to see.

Make sure to save the date and time so you can catch the AORUS Direct stream. If some fantastic motherboards are announced, you won’t want to miss it. If you can’t make it, don’t worry — a post-stream recap highlighting everything you need to know will also be available.

    Check out the cerberus x case.

    Well, if they announce mobos, I really hope they have a manual switch for their dual BIOS.
    The software one they use is utterly garbage and completely unreliable, because said software corrupts itself. Then it goes into a rapid power cycle loop that kills everything else in the PC.

    Not enough people get this. My old gigabyte z97 system corrupted one bios, just had to keep trying to boot 100 times until it finally decided to switch on its own. Not great.

    Isn't that a Dual BIOS system? Most Gigabyte are

    the issue is with some Boards they dont have a physical switch and there is no clue in the paperwork how to swap to the alternate bios so can lead to frustration until the board decides to do it itself which can be at random if the built in software decides there is a fault and it then overwrites in some cases a perfectly good bios with the factory default which if your sensible you leave the alternate bios at when updating, a simple switch would be worthwhile got rid of my X470 because of this and bought an alternate x570 with a switch from another Brand, they also dont provide a jumper to reset the bios have never been comfortable prodding about in my motherboard with a screwdriver or paper clip deliberately shorting pins, they must cost 0.0001p to provide!

    Prob got to pull the first chip. But Gigabyte has gone a long way. I think they are tied for my fav with MSI. Asus and Asrock dropped those spots a while back. Z77 was Asrocks tops. Z170 was Asus tops. Now they have weird bugs and high prices.

    Both BIOS chips are soldered in on most gigabyte mobos.

    and it's a PITA to desolder chips on a very large PCB, like a mobo.

    I think everyone knows what they are. Unless b550 time travels to present
