Gigabyte Z390 Motherboards and GeForce RTX Graphics Cards on Display at CES 2019 ⋆ FGR* Blog
Taking things a step further, Gigabyte also had the AORUS Z390 Xtreme Waterforce motherboard on hand as well. It offers many of the same features as the Z390 AORUS Xtreme but adds in an AORUS all-in-one monoblock for both the CPU and PCH area. It also has Triple Ultra-Fast M.2 slots with PCIe Gen3 x4 interfaces along with their Triple Thermal Guards. To afford this high-end board unless you are an extreme enthusiast you might need to sell a kidney considering its eye-watering $899 price tag. Other motherboards on hand included both the X299 AORUS Master and Z390 AORUS Master which are already available at retail.
Concerning graphics cards Gigabyte had many on hand including GeForce RTX 2060, and RTX 2080 models. When we asked about the RTX 2060 cards, we found out that final clock speeds have not been determined just yet. However, Gigabyte will have multiple models including a Mini-ITX version available soon to go with the more traditional Windforce OC models etc.The real attention grabber out of the graphics cards on display was the AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme Waterfoce WB. It comes with a Waterforce water block and features RGB Fusion for illumination. It also has an all-metal backplate with RGB illuminated AORUS logo and comes with a 4-year warranty once the product has been registered. Clock speeds were listed as 1890 MHz compared to the reference cards 1710 MHz and to facilitate further overclocking they utilized a 12+2 power phase design.
