Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Xtreme Preview

Storage

Of all the motherboards we've had through the offices in the run up to today, the Gigabyte models are the ones that are most cloaked in a veil of secrecy regarding their PCI Express setup. All of them have "this depends upon what CPU you have" warnings, which made a lot of people wonder if they had surreptitiously snuck PCI Express 4.0 onto their boards. If they have, the i9 doesn't do anything with it.

Nicest board I have seen in a long time.

Makes me want to upgrade from the 7700k and get a 10900k just to use it.Quote

Just didnt get time for that before NDA - as it was I had to do 18 hour days because of some bios issues with the initial CPU review systemQuote

I can only imagine the insane scramble before deadlines. I know that is part of the game. I hope you know we are many that appreciate you direct style, the honesty and thoroughness you bring to your work. Especially the 'so what does it all mean / add up to' after all the numbers. Thanks man.Quote

Much can be saved, by having a case with no glass :-) I look at all these things, because i like the combination of aesthetics and electronics, but at the end of the day I get a bare-bone system that ticks off my functional requirements. And actually, that has a certain appeal as well; knowing you have 'needed stuff' and not tons of fluff.


TBH I can't imagine many people that actually need (not "want") these super expensive products. I mean - what is the use case here?Quote
