GIGABYTE Releases GeForce RTX™ 30 Series Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of premium gaming hardware, released the new NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 series graphics cards  powered by NVIDIA® Ampere™ architecture. GIGABYTE first launched 4 graphics cards - GeForce RTX™ 3090 GAMING OC 24G, GeForce RTX™ 3090 EAGLE OC 24G, GeForce RTX™ 3080 GAMING OC 10G, GeForce RTX™ 3080 EAGLE OC 10G. The 4 graphics cards feature GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 3X cooling system with alternate spinning fan, unique blade fan, graphene nano lubricant, screen cooling, large copper plate and heat pipe, RGB fusion 2.0, protection metal back plate, and GIGABYTE certified ultra-durable materials, so that all gamers can enjoy the ultimate gaming experience with the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs.

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, the 2nd generation of RTX, features new RT Cores, Tensor Cores and streaming multiprocessors, bringing stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which delivers increases of up to 1.9X performance-per-watt over the previous generation, the RTX 30 Series effortlessly powers graphics experiences at all resolutions, even up to 8K at the top end. The GeForce RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 represent the greatest GPU generational leap in the history of NVIDIA.

GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features 3x unique blade fans, alternate spinning, composite copper heat pipes, large copper plate direct touch GPU, 3D active fan and Screen cooling, which together provide high efficiency heat dissipation. These cooling technologies keep the graphics card in a low temperature at any time, resulting in higher and more stable performance. The middle fan spins in reverse to optimize airflow for heat dissipation, enabling more efficient performance at a lower temperature. Screen cooling extends the heatsink to allow air flow to pass through, providing better heat dissipation. In addition, graphene nano lubricant can extend the fan life by 2.1 times, close to the life of double ball bearing, and is quieter.

The graphics card uses the multi-phase power supply design to allow the MOSFET to operate at lower temperature, and over-temperature protection design and load balancing for each MOSFET, plus the Ultra Durable certified chokes and capacitors, to provide excellent performance and longer system life. The metal back plate not only strengthens the overall structure, but also prevents the PCB from bending or falling parts. In addition, in order to meet the needs of the gamers, RGB fusion 2.0 allows users to adjust the color of the lights and various special effects through AORUS Engine, and synchronize with other AORUS devices

GIGABYTE Debuts Dual SoC MZ72-HB0 Motherboard Designed for the AMD EPYC™ Platform

GIGABYTE Technology, (TWSE: 2376), an industry leader in high-performance servers and workstations, today unveiled a new high performance motherboard designed for dual AMD EPYC (Rome) processors. This is the first dual socket AMD EPYC motherboard by GIGABYTE, and it targets small businesses that are looking for high compute in a small tower or rack server. Whether as a professional workstation, system virtualization, media editor, or even a high-density storage server, the MZ72-HB0 is extremely flexible and capable.


The MZ72-HB0 comes in a standard E-ATX form factor giving it the flexibility for a diverse range of environments. It also caters more towards the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC line of processors because of the addition of PCIe 4.0, which has improved speeds and bandwidth benefiting 100G/200G Ethernet, InfiniBand, NVMe drives, and accelerators. The support for PCIe 4.0 extends into expansion slots, where there are five PCIe 4.0 slots that can be used for GPUs, accelerators, storage devices, or networking. There are a great deal of options for this motherboard, including the ability to handle a 280W AMD EPYC processor.


▲ MZ72-HB0

With support for dual processors, the MZ72-HB0 has 16 DIMM slots, 8 DIMMs per CPU, and support for 8 memory channels. This allows for DDR4-3200 in one DIMM per channel, or DDR4-2933 in two DIMMs per channel, and up to 4TB of memory. GIGABYTE has also included plenty of storage and LAN ports. The storage options: 4 x SATAIII, 2 x SlimSAS for U.2, 3 x SlimSAS for either 12 x SATAIII or 3 x U.2, and 1 x M.2 (@Gen4 x 4). For networking, there is a dual-port 10GbE Broadcom controller, and 1 mLAN port. To round it out, there is a management control software bundled with the MZ72-HB0.

As part of GIGABYTE’s value proposition, GIGABYTE provides GIGABYTE Management Console (GMC) for BMC server management via a web browser based platform. Whether for server monitoring, updating BIOS and firmware, or remote management, GMC delivers. Additionally, GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM) software can be downloaded and used to monitor and manage multiple servers. GMC and GSM offer a great value while reducing license and customer maintenance costs.
