[SH]Sin from Sin City! GIGABYTE Z77 Boards at CES - Page 2

post #11 of 36

No UD7. UD5 being the higest in its class with the Sinper being the highest for the gaming class.

Ok so here is some more info for you guys, as i was there and i had a hands on with these boards as much as i wanted and they answered all the questions.

Some VERY surprising things, the G1 Sniper 3, the Z77x-UD3, and the Z77X-UD5 ALL have POST Code displays, voltage read points, and buttons for power, reset, and clear CMOS. This time GB is adding those features which aren't too hard to implement into a wider range of boards.

The G1 Sniper 3 uses a PCI-E bridge chip, but it isn't an NF200 and it is PCI-E 3.0 compatible to supply that kind of SLI.

The new Atheros NIC, is the next gen bigfoot NIC, it still hasn't been publicly announced. The Sniper 3 also uses another Intel NIC. the UD5 has 2 Intel NICs. It also seems the other boards are using the Intel NICs for the most part.

What is most interesting is GB way of diversifying the product lineup. I was at CES, and GB held a "meet the executives type meeting" in which these boards were unveiled. A few of GB's executives actually love overclocking! I was able to talk to them one on one about their boards and how they could make them better, they definitely listened to everything I or others at the event had to say. GB does listen, even to things users say in this thread.

I made a video too, but I couldn't upload it yet. But those etecknics guys were nice.

The issue is why do you need a UD7 when the UD5 has all the features older UD7s had? All these boards carry OC style features except multiplier buttons. BTW hint of GOOC was about. .

hahaha, oh man. I already have a full time job that is why i don't. I feel like when you change your hobby to a job it changes, then I have to see the whole picture haha I really enjoy what i am doing now, why change that? GB listens to me, and 2012 should be good, better than 2011 for sure.

BTW people talking about the heatsinks, these are early mock ups, so that other companies, like you know who don't copy GB's heatsinks like they did with the G1 Assassin 2. Literary copied GB's heatsink styling mistake.

I dont know why companies havent started doing semi-easily replaceable design heat sinks.... if they could standardize them enough to work across a whole chipset series of board (Z77 etc) i could see it having enough volume to make sense. sell them 20-60$ a piece.....

have a few different series, colors, stupid gun looking ones etc....


works for CPUs. why not motherboards?

Dear Gigabyte,

You would have made so much money from me, as well as countless others this year had you ditched the juvenile toy gun aesthetic you've put on your boards. MSI is guilty of this too I'm pretty sure. Please never do that again, and you'll make more money.

Just so Gigabyte could have three sevens on their box.
