HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

As per tra­di­tion, Gigabyte’s COMPUTEX show­case was once again hosted on the 36th floor of Taipei 101. At the VIP suite, we saw the flag­ship X299 AORUS Gam­ing 9 moth­er­board kit­ted with four 400GB In­tel SSD 750 Se­ries PCIe SSDs in a RAID con­fig­u­ra­tion, while still spa­cious enough to ac­com­mo­date a work­sta­tion-class NVIDIA Quadro K620 graph­ics card.

An­other prod­uct that caught our at­ten­tion was Gigabyte’s new Killer xTend PCIe LAN card. It es­sen­tially serves as a net­work switch, where ad­di­tional de­vices – such as a PS4, iPhone, or iPad – are con­nected di­rectly to the PC via one of four Killer Eth­er­net E2500 ports and wire­less-AC mod­ule. This helps pri­or­i­tize im­por­tant net­work traf­fic (read: your on­line MMOs and mul­ti­player games) with­out com­pro­mis­ing the web brows­ing and video stream­ing ex­pe­ri­ence on the con­nected de­vices.

Thanks to Cre­ative’s SoundBlasterX 720˚ soft­ware, the X299 AORUS Gam­ing 7 can take ad­van­tage of a Scout Radar fea­ture to vi­su­al­ize en­emy move­ments in sup­ported game ti­tles through your smart­phone or tablet.

The AORUS GA-Z270X Gam­ing 9 – which was hon­ored with the Best Choice Golden Award this year – sup­ports na­tive 4K Ul­tra HD and HDCP 2.2, al­low­ing for UHD Blu­ray movie play­back on HDR-sup­ported dis­plays.

Gigabyte’s very own Killer xTend PCIe LAN card.
