GIGABYTE X99 Motherboards

GIGABYTE came out with the most models at launch, a total of eight boards. They do have their flagship models front and center, and readily available, including the X99 SOC Force and X99 Gaming G1. GIGABYTE had made some major line up changes with Z97, and they have carried over the good stuff to X99 and added a lot of new features.

GIGABYTE is featuring the above power delivery upgrades on all of their models, which is pretty impressive, considering the X99-UD3 will be fairly reasonably priced. We looked up their server level inductors; they have a 76A saturation current. GIGABYTE had used IR power stages on their X79 boards and I am very pleased to see them return here, with even better inductors than their X79 motherboards used.

GIGABTYE is the first one to use 30 micron gold plating on their pins, I don't think anyone else is using above 15 microns.
