More affordable and cheaper motherboards supporting Intel’s 8th Gen Coffee Lake processors coming soon …
The first motherboard based on Intel’s H370 chipset has been leaked in the form of the Gigabyte’s H370 AORUS Gaming 3. Intel’s release of the remaining 300-series chipsets – besides the already launched, top-of-the-line Z370 – look to offer users more options when it comes to deciding exactly which features they are willing to pay for with their systems – an important option when so many facets of system building are more expensive than they ever have been.
The Gigabyte H370 AORUS Gaming 3 motherboard pictured is the Wi-Fi version, which includes a Wi-Fi adapter to further increase users’ bang for the buck. It’s a pretty standard AORUS affair in its color scheme, with the black, silver, and orange color scheme Gigabyte has been pushing in this lineup. There’s LED lighting, as is usual with Gigabyte’s AORUS products, which light up the right side of the motherboard, the four DRAM slots, and the Southbridge heatsink. There are 2x PCIe x16 slots and 4x PCIe 1x slots for graphics cards and peripheral (or just graphics cards if mining is your thing). There are 2x M.2 slots, 6x SATA III ports, and the rear I/O offers a mix of both old and new slots, as you can see from the pictures. It’s expected that Intel’s H370, B360, and H310 motherboards will begin selling early April.
