Intel’s less-expensive 300-series chipsets are finally here, and Gigabyte is leading the charge with 13 new motherboards.
The company announced five H370 and eight B360 motherboards, with Gigabyte seemingly betting on the less-expensive B-series budget boards to have a broader appeal.
Although Intel also announced the H310 chipset, Gigabyte doesn’t appear to have one at the ready for the launch, but it certainly made up for it in numbers.
The smaller motherboards retain the same front panel USB capabilities as their larger counterparts.
The ATX-sized HD3P and HD3 both sport the same robust PCIe, storage, and memory expansion options as the ATX H370 boards, but the B360M-D3H trades one of its M.2 interfaces for a legacy PCI slot.
The B360-HD3 and HD3P both have four PCIe 3.0 x1 slots, and their only discernible difference (on paper) is the networking NIC; the HD3P features an Intel i219V, whereas the HD3 has a Realtek 8118.
Pricing and availability of the new Gigabyte Intel 300-series motherboards is currently unknown, but we should learn more at PAX East this weekend, where the company will have the boards (and some other wares) on full display.
