China Boycotts GIGABYTE Over Low Quality Claims!

China Boycotts GIGABYTE Over Low Quality Claims!

GIGABYTE scrambled to issue an apology, after they were boycotted over their claims of “low quality” manufacturing in China!

Find out what’s going on between GIGABYTE and China!

 

GIGABYTE Trips Over Claims Of Low Quality Manufacturing In China!

This brouhaha started over the GIGABYTE’s claim that they choose to avoid “low cost” and “low quality” manufacturing in China, manufacturing their laptops instead in Taiwan.

Here is our English translation of what GIGABYTE posted :

MIT

Made In Taiwan Demanding High Quality

Strict quality control is assured by adhering to Taiwanese manufacturing. Unlike other brands that opt for low cost and low quality OEM manufacturing in China, GIGABYTE is committed to creating outstanding and powerful components and laptops.

As a local Taiwanese manufacturer of components and laptops, we guarantee that 90% of our laptops are made in Taiwan, assuring you of high quality control and high quality products.

 

China Boycotts GIGABYTE Over Low Quality Claims!

Once Chinese netizens discovered what GIGABYTE posted, their outrage was soon made manifest.

On 11 May 2021, the Communist Youth League of China responded with this short message on Weibo – “GIGABYTE, who gave you the courage to say this?

They also highlighted the part that said, “Unlike other brands that opt for low cost, low quality OEM manufacturing in China…”

Chinese e-commerce companies – JD, Tmall and Suning – swiftly removed all GIGABYTE products from their platforms.

 

GIGABYTE Quickly Issues Apology

The official Weibo account of AORUS GIGABYTE E-Sports quickly issued a statement of apology, stating :

A few days ago, parts of the text published on our official website are seriously inconsistent with the facts. This was a result of poor internal management of our company.

We sincerely apologise for the discomfort caused to you. At the same time, we also thank gamers and consumers for their attention to our company.

GIGABYTE’s product business includes boards, laptops, computer peripherals, accessories, etc, with production lines all over mainland China, and its production capacity accounts for more than 90%. GIGABYTE is proud of the quality of Chinese production. Chinese production have helped GIGABYTE in creating excellent products and high-quality experiences for customers around the world. The product quality has withstood the test of the market and consumers for many years.

GIGABYTE has been operating in mainland China for more than 20 years, and will conduct a thorough review of the inappropriate remarks and carry out corrective actions to comply with national principles. GIGABYTE will strengthen internal management and training to ensure that all employees are aware of the problem and pay attention to it.

GIGABYTE Technology
11 May 2021

We are not sure if the Chinese authorities would consider this post an official apology, as it was posted by AORUS GIGABYTE E-Sports, which belongs to Ningbo Zhongjia Technology and Trade Co. Ltd. – a subsidiary of Taiwan Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd.

Officially, GIGABYTE Technology hasn’t issued any statement.

Scammer vs Scalper : Five RTX 30 Series Cards Gone!

A scammer just cheated a scalper out of FIVE GeForce RTX 30 series cards in a COD deal!

Find out how he got cheated in a Cash-On-Delivery exchange, and learn from his mistake!

 

Scammer vs Scalper : Five RTX 30 Series Cards Gone!

Scalpers have been taking advantage of the graphics card shortage, and massive increase in GPU mining, to make a killing on every graphics card they lay their hands on.

But the high prices and massive profits associated with graphics cards have also attracted scammers, who prowl online marketplaces looking for their greedy marks…

One scalper today shared how he was cheated of five NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards. What was even more shocking – he got scammed in a Cash On Delivery deal!

What Did The Scalper Lose?

The scalper lost five GIGABYTE graphics cards :

  • RTX 3070 AORUS Master (S/N : 210841066018)
  • RTX 3070 AORUS Master (S/N : lost)
  • RTX 3070 Gaming OC (S/N : 210841068841)
  • RTX 3070 Gaming OC : (S/N 210341039296)
  • RTX 3060 Gaming OC : (S/N 210441056468)

How Much Did The Scalper Lose?

We have no idea how much the deal was supposed to be, but he was quoting freaking high prices of :

  • RM4,699 (~US$1,135) for ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3060
  • RM5,500 (~US$1,329) for ASUS RTX 3060 Ti TUF Gaming

As you can tell, that is something like 2.5X more than what the cards really cost.

Based on that, we guesstimate that the entire deal was probably “worth” RM 34,000 (~US$8,200) to the scalper.

How Did The Scammer Fool The Scalper?

Here’s the interesting part – how the scammer fooled the scalper in a Cash On Delivery (COD) deal.

The scalper is not very clear about certain aspects, but from what we can gather with some investigations of our own…

  1. The scammer arranged to meet the scalper in a shopping centre, probably to gain his trust.
  2. He made an Instant Transfer, which failed. He probably set the transaction limit low.
  3. He blamed the bank transfer transaction limit, and said he would ask his wife (???) to change the limit.
  4. He then offered to transfer the money via a CIMB IBG GIRO transfer.
  5. The scammer likely initiated a Scheduled Transaction (which can be cancelled), and showed the scalper the online transaction receipt.
  6. By giving the scalper only a glance at the transaction receipt, or covering up the scheduled part of the receipt, he conveys the impression he had already transferred the money.
  7. To his credit, the scalper checked his own bank account and saw that the money was not deposited.
  8. The scammer then called the bank in front of the scalper, who confirmed that a GIRO transfer cannot be cancelled.
  9. The scammer sent the scalper a picture of his identity card and bank transaction receipt (probably through WhatsApp), to seal the deal.
  10. Once he walked away with the five graphics cards, the scammer quickly deleted the picture of his identity card and the bank transaction receipt, and cancelled the scheduled transaction.

So that was how the scalper went from potentially making a killing on his five GeForce graphics cards, to getting slaughtered by a scammer in a Cash On Delivery deal!

The scalper wondered if there was “Black Magic” involved. The truth is – the scammer used his greed to stop him from just walking away with his cards.

What Do We Know About The Scammer?

The scalper provided these details about the scammer who cheated him of his five graphics cards :

  • Surname : Ng
  • Race : Chinese
  • Identifying Features : Scar below right eye, tattoo on back of neck
  • Identity Card Number (partial) : 800831
  • State of Origin : Johor
  • Mobile Number : 013-277-6995
  • Vehicle Type : Honda HRV (Charcoal colour)
  • Vehicle Number Plate : 3553 or 5335

We have to point out that we cannot vouch for the authenticity of the scalper’s claims, or the details he shared.

 

Scammer vs Scalper : The Original Post

This was what the scalper posted on the issue :

*Scammer Alert *

Chinese Guy , Have Scar below right eye , tattoo behind neck
Beware of this person phone number 013-277-6995 Surname NG
IC No 800831, ic from Johor, Driving Honda HRV Charcoal Colour car plate could be (3553 or 5335) security doesn’t allow to take the file , too blur , i can only remember that, This person contacted me at Carousell ,mainly fishing graphic card seller in Carousell, couldn’t speak english , starting he will text in malay , He is scamming a lot of Graphic Card , Im a seller , i met him and COD at Cheras Connaught Avenue and Eko Cheras, his tactic is he will make instant transfer first , then failed, then he say he will ask his wife to change the limit , and then he will transfer you CIMB IBG GIRO transfer, and cancel it (after you leave) , i did check my bank account , money is not in, after that just in front of you he call the bank , the bank said once GIRO transfer has been made it cannot be cancel , he will ask u to snap his car plate no , but later give more excuse say that his wife drove away the car, but he came alone, im not sure is there any Black Magic ,he will keep on mentioned about his Wife he will send you the receipt and ic , he was nervous too , after he send me his ic , his uc image face was totally covered , after sending u the receipt he will quickly leave within a sec but he will delete the IC and Receipt , after the next sec you leave , so u are not able to trace him. mainly talking about mining have few farm in Seremban, and how do police trace using a thermal gun, evolving from using old bitcoin mine machine to graphic card, want to get 60 pieces, as a victim , i know that this is very stupid but I hope that no one will be the next victim after me.

AMD Smart Access Memory (Resizable BAR) Guide

Find out what AMD Smart Access Memory is all about, and how to turn it on for a FREE BOOST in performance!

 

Smart Access Memory : PCIe Resizable BAR for AMD!

Smart Access Memory is AMD’s marketing term for their implementation of the PCI Express Resizable BAR (Base Address Registers) capability.

What does that mean exactly?

CPUs are traditionally limited to a 256 MB I/O memory address region for the GPU frame buffer. This of it as an “data dump” for stuff like textures, shaders and geometry.

Since this “data dump” is limited to 256 MB, the CPU can only send texture, shader and geometry data as and when the GPU requires them.

This introduces some latency – delay from when the GPU requires the data, and the CPU send them.

Turning on Resizable BAR or Smart Access Memory greatly expands the size of that data dump, letting the CPU directly access the GPU’s entire frame buffer memory.

Instead of transferring data when requested by the GPU, the CPU processes and stores the data directly in the graphics memory.

Graphics assets can be transferred to graphics memory in full, instead of in pieces. In addition, multiple transfers can occur simultaneously, instead of being queued up.

While this AMD graphic above suggests that Smart Access Memory will widen the memory path (and thus memory bandwidth) between the CPU and GPU, that is not true.

Smart Access Memory / Resizable BAR will not increase memory bandwidth.

What it does is let the CPU directly access the entire GPU frame buffer memory, instead of using the usual 256 MB “dump”. That reduces latency because the graphics assets are now accessible by the GPU at all times.

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : Performance Gains

According to AMD, enabling Smart Access Memory will give you a small but free boost of 5% to 11% in gaming performance.

Here is a summary of the test results from our article, RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory Performance Comparison!

You can expect up to 16% better performance in some games, but no effect in certain games. But overall, you get a free boost in performance. There is simply no reason not to enable Smart Access Memory.

1080p Resolution (1920 x 1080)

1440p Resolution (2560 x 1440)

2160p Resolution (3840 x 2160)

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : Requirements

Since Smart Access Memory is just an AMD implementation of PCI Express Resizable BAR. Therefore, it can be be implemented for all PCI Express 3.0 and PCI Express 4.0 graphics cards and motherboards.

However, AMD is currently limiting it to a small subset of components, having validated it only for their new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, select Ryzen 3000 Series Processors and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.

So this is what you currently require to enable AMD Smart Access Memory :

Hardware

Software

  • AMD Radeon Software Driver 20.11.2 or newer
  • Latest Motherboard BIOS (AMD AGESA 1.1.0.0 or newer)

AMD currently recommends these X570 motherboards, because they have updated BIOS available :

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : How To Enable It?

If you have all of those supported components above, and updated your motherboard BIOS, you need to manually enable Smart Access Memory.

Now, the method will vary from motherboard to motherboard, and it probably won’t even be called Smart Access Memory.

Instead, look for variations of Above 4G Decoding, or Resizing BAR, or Resizable BAR, or Re-Size BAR Support.

AMD Generic Method

AMD has provided these generic steps to enable Smart Access Memory :

  1. Enter the System BIOS by press <DEL> or <F12> during the system startup.
  2. Navigate to the Advanced Settings or Advanced menu.
  3. Enable “Above 4G Decoding” and “Re-Size BAR Support“.
  4. Save the changes and restart the computer.

Step-by-Step Method For ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero

In our guide, we are using the ASUS CROSSHAIR VIII Hero (AMD X570) motherboard, as an example :

  1. First you will need to turn off CSM (Compatibility Support Module), or make sure it’s disabled.Go to the Boot menu and look for a CSM / Compatibility Support Module option.

  1. Set CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to Disabled.

  1. Go to the Advanced menu and look for the PCI Subsystem. In other motherboards, look for PCIe / PCI Express configuration options.

  1. Enable Above 4G Decoding.

  1. This will give you access to the Re-Size BAR Support option. Set it to Auto.

  1. Now go to the Exit menu, and select Save Changes & Reset.

  1. It will ask you to confirm the changes. Just verify both, and click OK.

After the motherboard reboots, AMD Smart Access Memory (PCIe Resizable BAR) will be enabled for your Ryzen 5000 series CPU and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card!

 

CSM Warning For GIGABYTE AORUS X570 Master

AMD currently recommends these X570 motherboards, because they have updated BIOS available :

CSM is disabled by default for the ASUS, ASRock and MSI motherboards. However, it is enabled by default in the GIGABYTE AORUS X570 Master.

If you installed Windows without first turning CSM off, it will be configured as non-UEFI. It will NOT boot if you enable Resizable BAR Support (Smart Access Memory).

You will need to reinstall Windows with CSM support disabled.

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 Availability Not The BIG Problem…

The availability of GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards is not really the BIG problem for most gamers…

There are actually many RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards for sale… if you can afford them!

 

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 Availability Not The BIG Problem…

Together with the newly-launched Radeon RX 6800 XT, the GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are the most popular gaming upgrades this holiday season.

Many gamers are gripping about how difficult it is to buy one, but a quick check reveals that there are really quite a lot of RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards for sale.

Sure, they are not as abundant as the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER when they were launched; but you can still find quite a few of them online.

Here is a list of RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards available online, as of 27 November 2020 :

MALAYSIA

SINGAPORE

UNITED STATES

United Kingdom

AUSTRALIA

 

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 : Their Price Is The BIG Problem!

As the list above shows, there are many shops selling all three cards. The only country where there appears to be some shortage would be the UK.

The bigger problem really is the absurd prices some of these cards are selling for at these online shops.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a starting price of $499, while the GeForce RTX 3080 has a starting price of $699. Yet they are both selling for 2-3X that in the US and the UK, and 50-100% more in other countries.

Only the GeForce RTX 3090, with its astronomical starting price of $1,499, has not seen ridiculous price scalping. It is only 20-30% more expensive around the world.

Of course, price is highly-dependent on supply and demand, but that is partly because NVIDIA and their partners appear to be closing an eye on scalping.

Until there is some price control, it appears to be profitable for some retailers to hold onto their cards, and offer them at high price points.

The only way around this is for consumers to hold off on buying overpriced cards, and opt for older cards with far better value instead.

What’s wrong with the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER? Absolutely nothing.

So they are not the fastest cards in the world, but they are still very powerful graphics cards in their own right. Heck, are you buying a graphics card to play games, or to show off?

Instead of getting frustrated at scalpers, buy the best value graphics card you can afford and go play some games!

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Power Up BIOS Guide!

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT cards are now available for sale, but many will NOT ship with the last-minute power-up BIOS updates.

We created this guide to help you download the correct BIOS updates, so you can enjoy your FREE Radeon RX 5600 XT power-up!

 

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Power-Up : A Quick Primer

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT launched with a TGP of 150 watts, a 1375 MHz game clock, a 1560 MHz boost clock and 12 Gbps GDDR6 memory.

But less than a week before it was made available for sale, AMD gave it a big boost in these aspects :

  • Up to 20.7% higher game clock
  • Up to 12% higher boost clock
  • Up to 16.7% higher memory clock
  • Up to 10W higher TGP

All that overclocking makes the Radeon RX 5600 XT quite a different beast from what was initially announced, and better positions it against the discounted NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 cards.

But please note that AMD is leaving it up to their AIB partners to determine the final clock speeds, so your card may not see such high boosts.

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT : Now 180W Strong!

GIGABYTE just gave the Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G a major, MAJOR performance boost!

Find out WHAT happened, and how YOU can enjoy this FREE performance boost too!

 

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G

When GIGABYTE announced their Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G, it was really just another overclocked version of the Radeon RX 5600 XT, no different from the SAPPHIRE PULSE RX 5600 XT we just reviewed.

But they just released a BIOS update that not only makes it much, MUCH faster… it also makes the Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G the fastest RX 5600 XT card currently available in the market.

 

New GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC Specifications

In this table, we compare the specifications of the newly-boosted GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC with the original launch specifications, as well as the Radeon RX 5700, and the reference Radeon RX 5600 XT specifications.

Here Are The First 22 AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Cards!

Unlike the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT cards, the new AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT does not have a reference design – it is available only as custom-designed cards from AMD’s partners.

Here is a quick primer on the first slew of Radeon RX 5500 XT cards from ASRock, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX!

 

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT : The First Cards

If you want to skip ahead to the first twenty two RX 5500 XT cards, click on these links.

For a quick primer on the Radeon RX 5500 XT, scroll down. Don’t forget to check out our PowerColor Red Dragon Radeon RX 5500 XT review!

 

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT : A Quick Primer

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT is basically the desktop version of the Radeon RX 5500M, using the same GPU with 6.4 billion transistors fabricated on the 7 nm process technology.

This Navi GPU has 22 Compute Units with 1408 stream processors and a 128-bit memory interface. The only difference is the Radeon RX 5500 XT has higher clock speeds and TDP, with up to 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT designed to deliver 1080p gaming at 60+ fps for AAA titles, and 90+ fps for esport games.

To reduce costs, AMD opted to use a PCI Express 4.0 x8 interface, instead of the PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. But if paired with a PCIe 4.0 chipset, it will deliver the same bandwidth as PCIe 3.0 x16.

The first NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER custom graphics cards are now out and available for sale!

Let’s check out what RTX 2070 SUPER cards brands like ASUS, GIGABYTE and ZOTAC have released, and how much they cost!

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Primer

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) has an NVIDIA TU104 GPU with 2560 stream processors.

This gives it 160 TMUs and 64 ROPS, delivering a peak output of 283 GT/s and 113 GP/s, thanks to its higher clock speeds.

Its 8 GB of GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz, giving it a peak memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

First Six GIGABYTE RTX SUPER Cards + 63 More Revealed!

Check out the first six GIGABYTE GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards, as well as the other 63 GIGABYTE RTX SUPER cards they will launch later…

 

The GIGABYTE GeForce RTX SUPER Graphics Cards

We earlier shared that GIGABYTE is prepping a whopping 69 Super RTX models. Now, GIGABYTE has officially revealed the first six Super RTX models for their AORUS series and GAMING series.

Recommended : NVIDIA SUPER RTX : Everything You Need To Know!

 

AORUS GeForce RTX SUPER Graphics Cards

The AORUS GeForce RTX SUPER series will have three models, at least initially.

  • AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8G
  • AORUS GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8G
  • AORUS GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8G

All three AORUS GeForce RTX SUPER models will feature :

  • top-of-the-line overclocked GPUs, certified by the GIGABYTE GPU Gauntlet sorting technology,
  • WINDFORCE 3x 100mm stacked fans, with three ring RGB lighting effects, and
  • seven video outputs – 3 HDMI, 3 DP, one USB-C

The WINDFORCE 3x 100mm stacked fans not only reduce the length of the card, they generate more air pressure for better cooling.

In addition, the alternate spinning fans help to solve the problem of turbulence from the three fans, which improves air pressure and cooling capability.

These will also be the only cards in the market to offer 7 video outputs, in the form of 3 HDMI ports, 3 DP ports and one USB-C port.

Recommended : The NVIDIA Super RTX vs AMD RX 5700 Comparison!

 

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX SUPER GAMING Graphics Cards

The GIGABYTE GeForce RTX SUPER GAMING series will have three models, at least initially.

  • GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING OC 8G
  • GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING OC SUPER 8G
  • GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING OC SUPER 8G

These GIGABYTE GeForce RTX SUPER GAMING models will offer :

  • Triple Alternate Spinning fans
  • Composite heat pipes with direct contact
  • Metal backplate and RGB lighting

The triple fans feature GIGABYTE’s patented Alternate Spinning fan technology, with a unique fan blade design. The increased airflow will help keep the heatsink cool as heat from the GPU is transferred by composite heat pipes.

The GIGABYTE AORUS RGB SSD Series Revealed!

At CES 2019, GIGABYTE revealed their latest storage product – the AORUS RGB SSD Series! And they are launching it in not one, but two, form factors – AIC and M.2.

The GIGABYTE AORUS RGB SSD Series Revealed!

AORUS RGB M.2 SSD

The GIGABYTE AORUS RGB M.2 SSD is available in two storage capacities – 256 GB and 512 GB. It delivers sequential read speeds up to 3480 MB/s and sequential write speed up to 2000 MB/s and is built with anodized, aluminium heatsinks.

The 512 GB GIGABYTE M.2 SSD Revealed!

GIGABYTE just revealed their 512 GB GIGABYTE M.2 SSD, an affordable solid state storage solution for the mainstream market. Learn more about GIGABYTE’s latest M.2 solid state drive!

 

The 512 GB GIGABYTE M.2 2280 SSD Revealed!

Based on the NVMe architecture, the 512 GB GIGABYTE M.2 SSD utilises PCIe Gen3 x2 lanes to deliver higher bandwidth and transfer speeds compared to the traditional SATA interface. Like the earlier 128 GB and 256 GB models, the 512 GB GIGABYTE M.2 SSD supports TRIM and S.M.A.R.T technologies.

The 512 GB GIGABYTE M.2 SSD is built around TLC flash memory, with Host Memory Buffer (HMB) to improve performance at a more affordable price point.

 

Why PCIe x2, Not PCIe x4?

With reduced SSD prices in recent years, many users have made the transition from SATA devices to M.2 devices. Despite the upgrade, storage performance from their M.2 SSDs is often bottlenecked by the utilization of SATA 6Gb/s lanes on their storage devices.

The SATA 6Gb/s interface cannot match the read/write speeds of the SSDs, holding back their storage devices. NVMe based storage devices that utilize PCIe Gen3 lanes circumvent this issue but these devices usually come with PCIe Gen3 x4 lanes which makes them significantly more expensive.

While users are looking for better performance, NVMe based PCIe Gen3 x4 solid state drives are expensive. GIGABYTE M.2 SSD is based on NVMe architecture but uses PCIe Gen3 x2 lanes to reduce cost, while using Host Buffer Memory (HMB) to maximise performance.

HMB technology uses system memory to cache and improve the SSD‘s performance. This eliminates the need for dedicated cache memory, allowing GIGABYTE to keep costs low.

 

GIGABYTE M.2 SSD Price + Availability

The GIGABYTE M.2 SSD series comes with a 3 year warranty, and three capacity sizes of 128GB, 256GB and the newly-announced 512GB. Here are some direct purchase links (with prices accurate as of 24 December 2018) :

GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS XTREME Motherboard Revealed!

Taipei, Taiwan, October 22nd, 2018 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, launched its newest flagship Z390 AORUS XTREME motherboard today.

With the highest power phase count of any Z390 motherboard on the market, the new AORUS flagship motherboard features a 16-Phase Digital IR VRM design and state-of-the-art thermal design for optimized power and thermal management to unleash the full overclocking potential of the new 8-core Intel Core i9-9900K processor.

 

The GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS XTREME Revealed!

The new 8-Core Intel Core i9-9900K processor is built on the 14 nm process technology and support the LGA 1151 socket. The 16-Phase Digital IR VRM design paired with solid pin power connectors not only provide a highly stable power supply but also reduces heat generated from overclocking or heavier workloads to prevent overheating from affecting performance.

Automatic Phase Balance Design

The automatic phase balance design not only regulates the loading of the 16-Phase power design but also reduces the operating frequency of the VRM controller chip, minimizing power consumption and heat generated from the PWM.

This design improves power efficiency, durability, and service life significantly. Furthermore, GIGABYTE’s 2x Copper PCB with a larger CPU power delivery plane not only offers more power supply stability, it also reduces excess heat generated from overclocking or heavy workloads to prevent power supply issues or overheating from slowing performance.

Fins-Array + Direct Touch Heatpipes

With 3 times more heat dissipation surface area compared to standard heatsinks, Fins-Array Technology bolsters heat dissipation on the Z390 AORUS XTREME. GIGABYTE upgraded its Direct Touch Heatpipe technology by implementing 4x heatpipes to improve heat transfer.

The first two front side PCB heatpipes directly contact the PowIRstage and inductors while the third and fourth heatpipes use an exclusive design which increases the contact between the heatsink and the backside PCB components.

Nanocarbon Baseplate

The addition of a NanoCarbon coated baseplate means that the heat from the PWM is more efficiently transferred to the heatsinks which lowers the temperatures around the power design. The VRM uses a LAIRD brand thermal pad thickened to 1.5mm to increase the contact between the VRM and its heatsinks, improving heat dissipation immensely and mitigating the effects of overheating on system performance.

Nanocarbon Baseplate design with heat dissipation gives the Z390 AORUS XTREME extra rigidity to prevent PCB bending while also protecting builders from the sharper components on the backside during installation.

Easy Setup + Troubleshooting

Aside from its visually appealing design and easy installation, the integrated I/O shield provides solid protection to the feature-rich rear panel’s USB 3.1 Gen2, network connectivity ports, audio jacks, and other expansion ports. Users can troubleshoot PC problems more easily with the board’s power, restart, reset BIOS (Clear CMOS), and other buttons.

The GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS XTREME employs a 90 degree design for the 24 solid pin power connectors which not only looks wicked cool when the power cables are configured but it also makes way for smoother air flow and a cooler system. Metal cladding on the pin connectors adds extra durability and reduces loosening caused by inserting and removing the power cables.

Easy Overclocking

Many features on the board are designed to help users bring out the best performance from the new Intel Core i9-9900K processor. With the CPU Upgrade in the BIOS, Smart Boost and Auto Tuning in the APP Center, users can overclock with ease.

[adrotate group=”2″]

For those who want more overclock control, don’t miss out on the OC Touch panel of the Z390 AORUS XTREME. OC Touch incorporates easy-to-use buttons and toggles for the user to configure key processor multipliers and adjust BCLK frequencies by units of 1MHz or 0.1 MHz. Regardless of whether the user is at the BIOS screen, using DOS or Windows operating systems, these frequency changes can be adjusted and applied without rebooting the system.

Users can quickly optimize their PCs’ performance and find the highest frequency for their processors. Additionally, the exclusive OC button can load overclock configuration presets so that less experienced overclockers can overclock at certain ranges.
