We met up with Alan from Gigabyte at the Taipei 101, where he showed us their latest X299 motherboards. We also got to see some interesting motherboard accessories for the AORUS range. Check out the video below …



There were loads of mods on display at the Gigabyte’s suite on the 36/F of Taipei 101. They also had an entire area dedicated to their AORUS gaming brand. This is where we saw their AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition (read the review here).

We also saw some gaming laptops and Gigabyte’s complete range of AORUS branded products, including the gaming chair.
