On April 30 at 10 am PST/1 pm EST, Gigabyte is streaming a special event called AORUS Direct on its YouTube channel. We don't know exactly it's going to reveal just yet, but it looks like it’s going to be something big.
Though Gigabyte manufactures laptop devices and custom graphics cards, it's best known for its vast selection of motherboards, and on April 30th, the company might just show off brand-new ones.
This could be exciting news for PC gamers. As the backbone of a computer, the motherboard is one of the most important parts in any rig. And 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 offer ever-expanding feature sets such as USB Type-C ports, M.2 slots, integrated Wi-Fi, and even RGB LED lighting controls.
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.
