GIGABYTE X99-SOC Force and X99-UD7 WiFi Preview
Goood morning hardware fans!!! The sun is shining in the sky, the birds are singing, and as the end of summer comes upon us, so does the launch of Intel’s Haswell-E behemoth. And you know what that means, right? A whole new army of motherboards for the eager tech aficionado, tens of models to choose from, dozens of new features and colors, hundreds of marketing claims and overall a whole bunch of questions regarding the new X99 platform, DDR4 and Core i7 5960X.
Well, today I will not answer these questions. No sir, you will still have to wait a few more days until you can see Haswell-E and DDR4 at work. However, until then I can still show you two new motherboards from GIGABYTE, namely GIGABYTE X99-SOC Force and GIGABYTE X99-UD7 WiFi. Interested? I bet you are…
What’s the fuss about the new platform? Well… this time there are quite some important new things involved, like the first desktop 8 core CPU, and the new generation of RAM, DDR4. This is the beginning of a new era, and we will start our journey, as always, with motherboards. GIGABYTE X99-SOC Force is the overclocking model, and we have great expectations from it, and GIGABYTE X99-UD7 WiFi is the all rounder most people will buy. So let’s buckle up and let’s see how the new motherboards look.
