Gigabyte's motherboards, gaming laptops, gadgets and mods at Computex 2017

Here's everything they were showing

  • Gigabyte had a large presence at Computex (as always). One of its centrepiece displays was a VR game in a vigorous gaming chair which had you feeling like you were flying through space.

  • The PX57 Gaming laptop.

  • Gigabyte's Aorus-branded laptops had some nice detailing.

  • A Gigabyte Brix "IoT" PC - the GB-EKi3M-7100.

  • Playing with the tiny Brix Gaming VR PC.

  • Brix Gaming VR PC specs.

  • An Ultra-compact Brix PC kit - GB-BSi5HAC-6300.

  • Aorus AC300W Gaming case from the front.

  • Gigabyte's Immersion Cooling demo (for data centre servers) always turns the head at Computex. It partnered with Allied Control engineering and 3M (using its Novec Engineered Fluid). Cooling hardware is eliminated creating large savings.

  • SabrePro 15 gaming laptop with GTX 1060 graphics and NVMe drive at a budget price. There's no 17-inch Pro version.
