    I need them to explain why the logo is so ugly. Or, why on your website it says, "...In ancient Egypt, in a told tale from our ancestors, victory was bestowed upon only those who were watched over by the great Horus. Derived the spirit from the ancient deity, AORUS rises."

    You are from Taiwan, not Egypt, right? So whos ancestors are you talking about?

    I think they are generalising about ancestry i.e. 'Ancestors of Man' not of a specific region.



    We shall see over time if this works for Gigabyte, personally didn't think they required a separate brand. Perhaps sales show otherwise.
    I guess this is to compete with ROG, though lacking in Graphics Cards atm.
    I do initially like the 120Hz on a laptop display.

    So, from the interview - the main feature is that there are a few LEDs that illuminate certain sections of the motherboard - but doesn't explain how this will improve running software that is designed for playing online games.

    Oh, and as an afterthought, mentions that the fan pin headers are sort of programmable (in that any type of fan can be used on any header to do any cooling function) which does seem to be progress.

    Or did I miss something?

    Re: Gigabyte explains thinking behind Aorus motherboards

    So where are all the budget KL chipsets then?? The most interesting CPU in the range is the Pentium G4260 and G4560 - even if older chipsets will work,the motherboards will probably need a BIOS update.

    Using a Z270 motherboard would not make much sense for a normal build using a Pentium G4260.

    I would rather see the money spent developing this tosh going into engineering a better board or lowering prices. A simple brown box and a green PCB would be fine by me.

    Plain white boxes are boring, though and these things are getting better.

    Already modern cars annoy me because so many all just look like Mondeos... I want options, things that are a pleasure to look at and that I can do stuff with. Same for my PC, my bike and so on.
    If I could afford one, I'd have a 900D packed with gubbins and things of my own making.

    I admit the current offerings of RGB keyboards are a bit naff, but again that's because they all look the same!!
