Gigabyte recently announced the release of the newest H370 AORUS GAMING 3 WIFI and B360 AORUS GAMING 3 WIFI motherboards. The motherboards offer Intel CNViTM WIFI technology through the Wireless-AC 9560 module for optimized wireless connectivity and a Realtek ALC1220-VB audio CODEC for crisper audio quality. As usual, the boards also come engineered with the company’s Ultra Durable technology.
Designed to be paired with Intel 8th Gen Core processors, the motherboards deliver next-gen wireless connectivity with 2×2 802.11ac WIFI optimized for faster download speeds. Simultaneous support for multiple devices is enabled on these boards thanks to the 2T2R Antenna design.
The boards’ 4 DIMMs Dual Channel DDR4 configuration is compatible with memory modules up to 2666MHz. The H370 AORUS GAMING 3 WIFI motherboard utilizes a Hybrid 8+2 Phase PWM design with a superior transistor to maximize efficacy of its power delivery while reducing the thermal constraints of traditional designs.
This provides excellent support for Intel Core i7 8700K processors and with its refined PWM design, ensures that sufficient power is supplied to the power-hungry components while keeping the areas around the CPU less vulnerable to thermal exposure.
The motherboards are also meticulously designed with highly power-efficient components so that power consumption is compliant with standards set by the CEC 2019 Energy consumption regulations. A BIOS option is available for activating the power-saving mode in which the motherboards conserve up to 15% less power relative to older platforms.
Redesigned M.2 Heatsinks on these H370 and B360 AORUS GAMING 3 WIFI motherboards take storage performance to the next level with a dual M.2 design. One of the slots is protected by a M.2 Thermal Guard limiting the effect of thermal throttling and allowing for transfer speeds up to 32 Gbps.
Furthermore, the SATA/PCIe dual mode M.2 slot designed by Gigabyte support Intel OPTANE Memory Technology allowing users to take advantage of dual M.2 SSDs to enjoy upgraded storage performance. The Intel native USB 3.1 Gen 2 design on these boards enables transfer speed up to 10Gbps.
