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.

    really depends on the upgrade cycle. but at the same time, look at the longevity of amd's sockets and their cpus, there is no logical reason why intel cant have the same longevity, is there ?

    Less driver problems where you want to get new cpu to work on older motherboard... so less work to do with drivers. Cheaper that way...

    Z490 perhaps? The socket doesn't look like AM4 on the middle one
  • shabby - Monday, April 27, 2020 - link

    Yup, if you increase the gamma the left one has a z490 on it.

    Comet Lake is being release in May sometimes - so Z400 series is the best bet

    I'd like to see something like their TRX40 AORUS XTREME only with a PCIe switch so that all four GPUs can get full 16x bandwidth.

    Cute you think that those cards, regardless of what you are using them more - some "deep learning" or such - traffic to the cards is bursty and not a continuous saturated bus

    In the worst case, the cards would sync up their 48GB of memory several times a second (model parallelism). There's a reason Nvidia makes NVlink bridges.

    Intel MDF (market development funding) has gotten real good recently. Wonder if it's because they're feeling the squeeze?

    Most of that is an offshoot of One API which will start getting a massive push towards the end of the year. Will take some doing to dislodge Nvidia's Cuda Ecosystem.
