Gigabyte launches new C236 boards & BRIX PCs with Thunderbolt 3 in Singapore

W Chang 19 Apr 2016

Event presentation

Gigabyte hosted an event for their Intel Z170 motherboard 2016 refresh at Intercontinental Hotel in Singapore last evening.

Various refreshed Z170 & B150 boards were on display. We also spotted one X170 (C236 based) & X99 board. Gigabyte labels their C236 boards as X170, which kind of make sense, given how similar the Z170 & C236 chipsets are.

Other entrees were Brix ultra compact DIY PCs with Thunderbolt 3 and an AKiTio Thunderbolt3 PCIe SSD enclosure.
