On April 30 at 10 AM PDT/1 PM EDT, Gigabyte is planning to stream a special event known as AORUS Direct on its YouTube. Nobody knows *what* specifically will be revealed just yet, but it looks like it’s going to be something big.

During AORUS Direct, Gigabyte is likely going to reveal some new top-notch motherboards that could hit the market soon. Though Gigabyte manufactures laptop devices and custom graphics cards, its production of motherboards is what the company is best known for. April 30, the company might just show off brand-new ones.

This could be exciting news for PC gamers. As the backbone of a computer, motherboards are one of the most important parts in any rig. And as the market for motherboards has become increasingly varied in recent years, as one of the largest motherboard manufacturers Gigabyte has been able to use its size to deliver a wide range of boards. These days motherboards don’t just vary in size – from towering EATX boards to tiny mini-ITX builds – but also ever-expanding feature sets such as USB Type-C ports, M.2 slots, Wi-Fi, and even RGB lighting controls.

As well, overclocking continues to remain popular, with performance-focused boards getting extra cooling and support for higher RAM speeds in order to maximize their performance potential. Based on what they’ve accomplished so far, whatever Gigabyte has to offer with a new line of motherboards should be pretty interesting to see.

Make sure to save the date and time so you can catch the AORUS Direct stream. If some fantastic motherboards are announced, you won’t want to miss it. If you can’t make it, don’t worry — a post-stream recap highlighting everything you need to know will also be available.

    Things I don't understand about marketing in the modern era: Why the HELL would someone pay money to get an ad for an ad published? Because that is what this is. They just paid money to run a commercial telling us that they are going to be running a commercial soon. Reply

    Exactly. Like watching a five second advert, for the film advert you're about to watch. Or watching cinema adverts for THE cinema you're currently sitting in. Reply

    Well, it's getting people to talk about their product. So mission accomplished? Reply

    At the very minimum, you are thinking about Gigabyte right now, which is more than can be said before you saw this ad. Reply

    I'd give my left tit for a reasonably priced mITX mobo with 4 ram banks (make them SO-DIMM if you want to save space) and 2 nvme slots (PCI 4.0). Create some space by only having 2 SATA ports, fewer USB3 ports, and putting one of the NVME slots on the back if needed.

    Bonus points if you include a PCIe riser cable so that the GPU can go in any orientation. An on-board 10gb or 5gb ethernet port would also be very nice indeed - prices have recently fallen considerably recently.

    That would be a real mini-powerhouse PC - modern mITX systems can be under 3-4 litres (including GPU and pico PSU) or about the volume of a couple of thick hardback books. Not too bothered if it's Intel or AMD - both have their advantages.

    Nothing ever Gigabyte does is BIG.
    They could fill whole premise with TNT and detonate it and it wouldn't be that BIG.
    So chill out...

    My prediction:


    Everthing else they got is just a fart in the wind...
