Gigabyte has stopped putting block diagrams in their motherboard manuals

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Gigabyte used to put those extremely helpful block diagrams in their manuals, allowing you to get a sense of PCI-E lane distribution etc. at a glance. This was actually a selling point for me. Has anyone else noticed that the block diagrams are conspicuously absent in their newer manuals (ie. for z170 and the latest x99 boards)? What a shame.

Wow that sucks. I've found these super useful over the past. Never used anything but Gigabyte motherboards... This is bad news, thanks for sharing sozo.gif
