IDF 2013 - Today at IDF 2013, GIGABYTE invited us over to their booth to talk about some of their new high-end motherboards that they are unveiling at the show. Up first is a new Z87 motherboard that features two Thunderbolt ports and a red and black color scheme.

GIGABYTE Marketing Director Colin Brix went on to show us another Z87 motherboard featuring Intel's Thunderbolt technology. Finally we were given a preview of a Sniper motherboard that will support Ivy Bridge E.

Top heatsink will be a Gatling gun tongue.gif






Lol, all kidding aside. I'm sure they will give it the same livery as the Sniper5.

You can pick anything from subtle greys, to orange, to green. Some people like orange and green.

in a sea of red and black, its nice to have different colors. I believe Asus deserves the grotesque title with their gold boards (more so then Ecs).

I disagree , the Ud5H TH and UD7 TH look fine. They remind me of sports cars, with the clean paint scheme , kind of like a Ducati or Honda CBR600RR.

The X79 Assassin is a tacky green that reminds of Kawasaki Ninjas, mustangs and "American muscle" , and TMNT.
