Upon first look the Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 uses a deep black PCB compared to most standard motherboards that label their PCB as black, only for it to be brown. The board measures 9.6″ X 9.6″ which is the standard for the mATX form factor. Gigabyte's...

Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 to całkiem niezła płyta główna, która sprawdzi się podczas budowy mniejszego, aczkolwiek nadal wydajnego komputera dedykowanego graczom. Model ten obsługuje procesory Intel Haswell i Haswell Refresh, a w przyszłości także...

Ca fait maintenant un moment que le chipset Z97 est dans la place et GIGABYTE se débrouille pour assez bien l'exploiter sur cette carte qui s'offre du SATA Express et du M.2 (mais pas en même temps) là où certaines cartes ATX manquent de l'un, de l'autre...

Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 predstavuje nie príliš drahú hernú dosku s viacerými zaujímavými funkciami. Sieťová karta Killer či audio časť s kodekom ALC1150 je už v podstate povinnosť pri boji s konkurenciou. M.2 slot sa taktiež už stal prirodzenou súčasťou...
