A new Intel CPU is just around the corner and we get more and more pictures of the upcoming motherboards to go along with it. This time it is Gigabyte’s Gaming 3 motherboard with a World of Tanks theme that poses for the camera.
The new Gigabyte Gaming 3 motherboard is aimed at the sweet spot between performance, features, and price. It supports 2-way SLI and CrossFireX graphic setups and offers a 7-phase CPU VRM. The four DDR4 memory slots support up to 64GB dual-channel memory and the two PCI-Express x16 slots will run at 8x when both are populated. You get one more PCIe x16 slot that is wired as a x4 and also three x1 PCIe slots.
There are plenty of storage options with two 32Gbit/s M.2 slots that can take 42, 60, and 80 M.2 modules, three SATA-Express 16 Gbps, and six SATA 6 Gbps ports. Externally you can connect two USB 3.1 devices, four USB 3.0 and four more via headers as well as numerous USB 2.0 ports.
The audio is provided by an 115 dBA SNR CODEC with ground-layer isolation and EMI shielding, OPAMP tuned for gaming and music, and audio grade capacitors. The network connectivity is covered by a Killer E2200 chip while it also provides D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI outputs for iGPU usage.
