It doesn't have to be branded as gaming for it to be used in gaming. In fact many gaming orientated parts lack features, that would come on a more full featured product.
Gaming branding usually means its functional for only gamers and lacking other features gamers are not normally interested in. Your motherboard is a prime example of this. This allows gaming branded parts to cost less than their full featured parts, giving a better performance for your dollar.
This hard drive features higher performance than a normal sata 3.0 drives. Giving you faster load times etc. However there are better products out there than this. One of them being the Muskin Scorpion Series pci-e drives.
