GIGABYTE Intros the GeForce GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming

GIGABYTE today announced its top-end GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, the GTX 1060 Xtreme Gaming (GV-N1060XTREME-6GD). This card is based on the 6 GB variant, with 1,280 CUDA cores. It serves up factory-overclocked speeds of up to 1645 MHz core and 1873 MHz GPU Boost in OC mode (vs. 1506/1709 MHz reference), and 8316 MHz (GDDR5-effective) overclocked memory, against 8008 MHz reference. The card uses a large cooling solution and a strong VRM setup, to sustain these clocks.

The cooling solution is a new-generation WindForce 2X Xtreme Gaming. This cooler is 3-slot, and features a twin-stack aluminium-fin heatsink, which uses three 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes that draw heat directly from the GPU, conveying it to two aluminium fin-stacks, ventilated by a pair of 100 mm fans which rotate in opposite directions to each other, while pushing air onto the heatsink. These fans stay off when the GPU is idling, a manual override button stops them on-demand. You get RGB LED lighting on a decal, and an X-shaped ornament on the cooler shroud. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Outputs include three DP 1.4, and one each of HDMI 2.0b and dual-link DVI. GIGABYTE didn't reveal pricing.

GIGABYTE BRIX Gaming UHD Pictured

GIGABYTE unveiled its latest BRIX mini-PC, which it feels is capable of gaming and the Ultra HD resolution (but not necessarily the two). The new BRIX Gaming UHD (model: BNi7HG4-950) combines a Core i7 "Skylake-U" processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950. This duo should be enough for gaming at 1080p with fairly high eye-candy. The GTX 950 also enables you to plug-in 4K Ultra HD displays for smooth non-gaming 3D applications. Being a barebones desktop, you're expected to drop in your own 2.5-inch drive or M.2 SSD, and one or two DDR4 DIMMs. The unit measures 220 mm x 110 mm x 110 mm (HxWxL), and is just 2.6L in volume.

GIGABYTE XK-700 Xtreme Gaming Keyboard Pictured

GIGABYTE showed off its latest Xtreme Gaming keyboard, the XK-700, nearly completing its brand purism. This board features a minimalist design with an frosty aluminium front panel, a simple 104-key layout with a handful of macros and multimedia function keys, but underneath is a mechanical switch-set (brand currently unknown), with RGB LED lighting that not just lights up the key characters in different colors, but also puts up up a groovy light show as light from the elevated keys fall onto the aluminium panel.

GIGABYTE Also Unveils H170-Designare

In addition to the Z170-Designare and the X99-Designare, GIGABYTE unveiled the more value-oriented H170-Designare, establishing a common feature-set that constitutes the "Designare" branding. To begin with, the H170-Designare covers all the basics, with a 6-phase CPU VRM, reinforced DDR4 DIMM slots, reinforced PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (one runs at full-time x16, and one runs at x4), with four additional PCIe 3.0 x1 slots.

Things get interesting with the connectivity that's on offer. The board features two 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 ports driven by an Intel-made controller (one each of type-A and type-C), with 100W power delivery. The board also features an Intel I219-V gigabit Ethernet controller with cFosSpeed support. The most striking features are with its storage connectivity. You get a 32 Gb/s U.2 port, a 32 Gb/s M.2 port, and a PCI-Express 3.0 x4 slot, all of which feature NVMe booting support; with BIOS-level support for 3-drive RAID 0 arrays using three Intel SSD 750 drives.

GIGABYTE GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming Detailed Some More

GIGABYTE launched its GeForce GTX 1080 lineup with just two cards, the reference Founders Edition card, and the GTX 1080 G.1 Gaming, targeted at people who use their graphics cards for gaming. The GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming, which was teased in older articles, however, was missing in action. It turns out that GIGABYTE wants to give this card some Computex fame before it hits the shelves as the company's flagship GTX 1080 offering (for now).

The GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming is every bit as high-end and 'muscular' as described in our older article, but it turns out that GIGABYTE has made some major value additions. To begin with, the card will feature two front-facing HDMI ports, in addition to the one present on the rear bracket. An extended VR-link bracket lets you wire these ports out for additional HDMI ports, for your VR gear. The idea here is to let you plug in multiple HMDs to your machine, if it has enough compute power for multiple players in your game. The card also includes a more convenient 5.25-inch front-panel (if your case has them), with two HDMI ports, and two USB 3.0 ports that wire out from the motherboard's USB 3.0 front-panel header. Sadly, HMDs aren't plug-and-play, and you need to reboot your machine for your graphics card to detect and auto-configure them. The retail version of this card ships with a back-plate.

GIGABYTE Unveils Z170X-Designare Motherboard

GIGABYTE showed off the Z170X-Designare motherboard. The company's second Designare series motherboard after the X99-Designare, this board brings some of GIGABYTE's latest board design and component elements to the LGA1151 platform, such as reinforced memory and PCIe slots; and the latest storage connectivity options. Its notable features include USB 3.1 with 100W power delivery over type-A and type-C ports; a 32 Gb/s U.2 port, an extra-long M.2 22110 slot with 32 Gb/s bandwidth and NVMe support; and the company's latest UltraDurable tech, including anti-sulphur resistors, anti-rust rear I/O.

GIGABYTE Also Unveils the XC700 Gaming Chassis

In addition to the Xtreme Gaming line of PSUs, GIGABYTE also unveiled a new high-end, RGB LED-lit chassis, the XC700. GIGABYTE has had a fairly big lineup of entry-thru-mainstream mid-tower cases, but this is the company's first truly enthusiast case. Built for the post-5.25" generation, this ATX full-tower case features a contemporary aluminium silver+black front facade with a tempered-glass side-panel, and a glowing "Xtreme Gaming" badge lining the drive cage.

Instead of wasting precious real-estate on 5.25-inch drive bays, the case features a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator vents on the top-panel, with 120 mm intakes along the rear, bottom, and front panels. The case has room for large ATX and EATX motherboards, with eight expansion slots (letting you use a dual-slot graphics card on even your motherboard's bottommost slot). The star attraction here, of course, is the factory-fitted RGB LED setup, which lines key design elements of the case, including the large logo. To top it off, you get GIGABYTE's Xtreme Gaming emblem to show off your brand loyalty.

GIGABYTE Forays Into Enthusiast PSUs with New Xtreme Gaming Line

GIGABYTE is making a serious push into high-end gaming PC power supplies (PSUs), with its new Xtreme Gaming line. The company has, in the past, sold entry-thru-mid-range PSUs.
