Gigabyte showcased its X99-Designare EX motherboard at a closed doors event at Computex. TweakTown reports this is the new top-of-the-line mainstream model from Gigabyte, it gets rid of the traditional "Ultra Durable" naming in favor of something new called "Designare".
The X99-Designare EX is GIGABYTE's top-of-the-line mainstream model. Moving away from the traditional "Ultra Durable" naming scheme and trying some new words, the X99-Designare EX is one of the first GIGABYTE motherboards you will be able to purchase under this new model name. The motherboard fully supports the 6950X Broadwell-E 10 core CPU, and I used it in our review of the new CPU. The motherboard uses a PEX8747 to expand CPU PCI-E 3.0 lanes to support dual U.2 ports, M.2, and a slew of PCI-E lanes. The board also has dual Intel Gbit LAN and build in Wireless AC/BT. GIGABYTE also make sure to include those RGB LEDs for enthusiasts who might want some extra bling.
Furthermore, Gigabyte also revealed the Z170X-Designare, the X99-Phoenix SLI, the X99-UD3 PLUS and a bunch of Gaming and Tiny motherboards, head over to TweakTown for the full coverage with lots of photos and specifications.
