Video Review: Motherboard Gigabyte Z370 AORUS Gaming 7

Hadirnya prosesor Core i 8th Generation, dengan kode Coffee Lake, diikuti dengan sebuah keharusan menggunakan motherboard baru. Walaupun menggunakan soket LGA1151, sama seperti Skylake dan Kaby Lake, Intel menyebutkan bahwa ada beberapa batasan yang membuat Coffee Lake membutuhkan motherboard baru, dengan chipset Intel 300 Series. Intel pun telah merilis satu chipset, Intel Z370, untuk platform Coffee Lake ini. Hal itu membuat produsen motherboard, termasuk Gigabyte, merilis produk baru mereka untuk mengakomodasi prosesor baru Intel ini!
