One of the more weird releases in the history of Intel has to be Ivy bridge and the accompanying Z77 chipset. It was bound to be launched then delayed, then delayed further, then pushed forward again, then the processor is delayed and the motherboards all of the sudden could be shown at CeBIT. Quite confusing really.
Though not officially introduced as are allowed to show you some pictures of their upcoming Z77 motherboards with dimmed down specs. Gigabyte of course will offer a good variety of products as well, today we preview the GA-Z77X-D3H.
The GA-Z77X-D3H is intended for Intels 22nm processors that will be coming out later this year based on Socket LGA1155 however the motherboard also supports Sandy bridge processors like the Core i7 2600K. While we are not allowed to publish any testing results whatsoever related to Ivy Bridge on this GA-Z77X-D3H, we are able to give you a closer look at the motherboard itself.
Have a peek at what is about to launch soon, this is the GA-Z77X-D3H 'Ivy Bridge' ready Motherboard.
The GA-Z77X-D3H certainly is a good looking motherboard alright. The traditional black blue style, new cooling heatsinks. Definitely a nice thing to see.
