Introduction The X99 chipset has now had a little bit of time to mature. During its initial launch Gigabyte sent us the X99-UD4 motherboard for review. The X99-UD4 took home our Great Hardware Award for its simple aesthetics along with a solid performance to value. Now that we are six months into the release of the X99 chipset, we are seeing more motherboards become available at a much more affordable price. Today, we are going to be looking at one of these motherboards that offer a similar performance to the X99-UD4 in a more simplified package and price. We introduce to you the Gigabyte X99-UD3P. Aesthetically, the Gigabyte X99-UD3P is very similar to the UD4 motherboard with some obvious changes. As we continue here, we are going to take a closer look at the Giagbyte X99-UD3P to see exactly what those differences are. Before we do that, let’s move forward and talk about Gigabyte.

The Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gaming is the graphics card we're looking at today, and it's latest in the company's popular model series, coming with updated features for the namesake cooler. We've been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It's constructed in metal rather than plastic, and comes with an aggressive factory overclock and a few great features such as ShadowPlay, Adaptive Temperature Control, and GPU Boost clocks. Suffice it to say, we're rather excited to get this card on the bench.
With the Raptor gaming mouse, Gigabyte is targeting a rather specific crowd in the gaming world: those who want a claw-style rodent. We don't see many of these, and the Raptor looks sleek and comes with a few interesting features. Not only is it a claw mouse, but it's also nearly ambidextrous. Interesting, to be sure. But will it alienate mainstream users, or zero in on those who want something special? Let's take a closer look at the Gigabyte Raptor gaming mouse and make the call.

Gigabyte is continuing their foray into the gaming peripheral market, and this time it's the audio arena with the launch of a new gaming headset, the FORCE H3X. This set of cans looks sleek, is lightweight, versatile, and reasonably priced at about $100. But what about performance? Indeed, this is where headsets make (or lose) their reputations, so let's take a closer look and see just how well the Gigabyte FORCE H3X gaming headset performs.
Today we're looking at the AORUS Thunder K7 mechanical gaming keyboard, a fully backlit board that sports some solid styling and a unique design, looking to attract consumers who want something a bit different. The Thunder K7 is not your average mechanical board, as one of its most unique features is detachable and movable numpad, suitable for both lefties and righties. Question is: can the AORUS Thunder K7 can stand out in a widening field of mechanical keyboards? Let's get to it and find out.
Today we’re going to test drive the AORUS Thunder M7, a mouse that's specifically geared to MMO/RTS gamers. Coming with a huge assortment of buttons and some unique features as well, the M7 looks rather exciting. It's got well-established Gigabyte backing it through their new AORUS gaming division, and the M7 is the flagship MMO mouse. And as an added bonus, we have the Thunder P3 mouse pad for a closer look as well, a control mat that's utterly massive. Let's dive in.
Today marks the launch of Nvidia's newest generation of graphics cards, and th Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming is the specific model we're looking at today. It's latest in the company's popular model series, coming with an updated version of its namesake cooler. We've been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It's not an entirely fresh look, constructed in metal rather than plastic, but does come with an aggressive factory overclock and a few new surprises in store.
Gigabyte as a motherboard manufacturer has been very successful over the last decade, and the last few years have only served to solidify that. In fact, Gigabyte has taken things a step further with their more recent motherboard releases. Their design team has revamped the styling and improved the lineup with feature-rich variations. Giagbyte's popular UDX series motherboards are frequently one of the first considered motherboards on the market since the Z77 release. With Gigabyte's Haswell refresh, the Z97 chipset, they aim to continue that tradition. Today we are going to be looking at the Z97X-SLI motherboard. By the name, it appears Gigabyte has geared this motherboard towards SLI as its defining feature. However, there is more than meets the eye. At a glance, this board looks a little more simplified when compared to the UDX series board. Will it pack the same punch? We are going to put the Z97X-SLI to the test to see how it stacks up to Gigabyte's reputation.

Today we're specifically looking at the Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Windforce, a budget-oriented card that comes with a factory overclock out of the box and a cooler design that promises very low temperatures, while looking to trounce AMD's R7 260X not only in performance, but also power efficiency. Let's take a closer look and get it on the bench to see if real world tests can fulfill Nvidia's aspirations.
Today we're looking at a premium gaming card from Gigabyte in the form of the GTX 780 GHz Edition. As you can probably guess, its approach comes in the form of aggressive overclocking, by juicing up the core past 1GHz, one of the fastest on the market. Gigabyte doesn't normally just overclock their products, and indeed this model sports a stunning cooler that we've seen before: the Windforce. We've been impressed in the past with Gigabyte Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It's constructed in metal rather than cheap plastic, comes with three fans, heatpipes, and a boatload of cooling potential in a stylish gaming package. Factor in a very aggressive overclock on this card, and we are eager to see just how fast this thing can go. Let's take a closer look.
