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.

    If the dimly lit, obscured motherboards pictured are any indication, Gigabyte will be announcing still more full ATX boards with no sign of any decent mATX in sight.

    "Why is there zero analysis in this article and why is it so breathless?"

    It don't mind this too much. I like Gigabyte motherboards, and it says "Sponsored Post" in the title, the category, and the author.

    Just so long as when review time comes, if it sucks, the reviewer can say that it sucks.

    Yeah, at least it's up-front

    I vehemently disagree that we should commend Anandtech for meeting the absolute bare minimum. Of course a purported news site should disclose the buyer of their advertisements.

    The only reason to publish advertisements in exactly the same format as regular news articles, and included in the same "news" feeds, is to trick users into reading them. It's as simple as that. It's an abhorrent practice and Anandtech is cheapened because of it.

    The only people "tricked" are those unable to read in the first place. Clearly not the target consumer anyway.

    At least here they say it in the very first word of the title so you know not to click. Zero click bait here which I like.

    I guess I'm not the only one thats interested in mATX then....
  • AdditionalPylons - Tuesday, April 28, 2020 - link

    Me too.

    I prefer ITX, but mATX above ATX any day of the week. Here's to wishing DTX makes a large-scale comeback.
