Since Intel announced the latest 100-series chipset and 6th Generation Intel Skylake processors last year, we have seen Gigabyte released quite a number of overclocking and gaming motherboards; and one of them is the Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 motherboard. We have already tested several PC components with this motherboard since the first day it arrived, and today we are finally going to publish our full review of the motherboard. The Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 is not the highest end motherboard from Gigabyte’s Gaming Series. If I am not mistaken, currently there are 10 Gigabyte Z170 motherboards under the gaming series; and the Z170X-Gaming 7 sits somewhere in the upper middle portion of the lineup. It’s one of the company’s motherboards to be Intel Thunderbolt 3 certified and supports the latest USB 3.1 and USB Type-C connectors. It also has a dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 connectors with up to 32Gb/s of data transfer supporting both PCIe NVMe and SATA SSDs. There are more features built into this machine, and most of them are what you expect to see from an overclocking/gaming motherboard. Now the question is, is the Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 the right motherboard for your next build or gaming PC? Find out in our review here.

Just before the official release of AMD’s new Radeon RX 480, a photo of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 shows up in Hong Kong. I wasn’t expecting to see the GTX 1060 to appear so soon, considering that the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 were recently released. Could it be that NVIDIA is planning to release the GTX 1060 earlier than expected to counter AMD’s RX 480 and the upcoming Vega 10?

Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 PGF Edition and New FireStorm Surfaced - ThePCEnthusiast

Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 PGF Edition and New FireStorm Surfaced - ThePCEnthusiast | PC Enthusiast | Scoop.it

A few days after the announcement of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, Zotac was the first to announce their GTX 1080 Founders Edition featuring the reference design of the said GPU. Now, custom design GTX 1080 are starting to surface and recently the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 PGF Edition was teased. It seems that Zotac won’t be using the brand “AMP!” anymore (not sure yet) and they are introducing a new brand for their GTX 100 series cards – the PGF Edition or Prime Gamer Force. I expect that the PGF edition will have (significant) faster clock speeds than the Founders Edition. On top of that, the new Zotac GTX 1080 PGF graphics card features RGB lighting effect, not only on Zotac’s logo, but this time on the back plate as well.
