Gigabyte launches a Kaby Lake-X only X299 motherboard

Why not just go with Z270?



Read more on Gigabyte's Kaby Lake-X only X299 Gaming Aorus.

I like this move from Gigabyte. But i like more the move from ASUS where on Rampage VI page, as little as there is says: "Rampage VI Extreme does not support Intel® Core™ i7-7740X and i5-7640X processors".

This is a dumb motherboard and a waste of time by gigabyte, it is bad enough intel put that processor on the market, making a specific motherboard for a cpu range that has no business being there is just weird.

Apparently these CPUs will overclock better than Kaby. Time will tell I guess, they may be soldered. Still stupid though, like nearly all of Intel's low end HEDT CPUS.

Take the 3820 for example. It cost more than the 2600k, didn't overclock as well and you needed a £300 (at launch) board for it ! Then they cracked out the 4820k, more of the same. They only really changed that with the launch of the 5820k.

I imagine their customer base for this motherboard is going to be very small.
