Gigabyte unveils gaming WiFi motherboard
New array offers optimal support for AMD Wraith Max CPU cooler and Ryzen 7 processors
Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd, a maker of motherboards and graphics cards, has unveiled the AMD AB350N gaming WiFi Mini-ITX motherboard, based on the AMD B350 chipset.
The components company said the new product has a built-in smart-fan 5, hybrid fan pin header, RGB fusion and server-class components.
According to Gigabyte, the AB350N gaming WiFi motherboards have been designed to support AMD flagship-class Wraith Max CPU cooler, a high-performance cooling solution for the latest AMD CPUs, including Ryzen 7 processors.
Henry Kao, vice president, Gigabyte Motherboard Business Unit, said: "Gigabyte has been building strong relationships with AMD. When AMD published the latest Wraith Max, we released a corresponding model to meet the demand."
Kao said even more so, Gigabyte's R&D put great efforts on re-arranging the components on the board in order to make mini motherboards achieve optimal compatibility for larger thermal cooling solutions. "In the future, we will continue to cooperate with AMD and create more unique, creative products to address the demands from gamers and enthusiasts," he said.
Gigabyte added that unlike most conventional CPU coolers, AMD's newly released Wraith Max has larger dimensions and weight, making the traditional Mini-ITX designs more challenging. The company said it redesigned AB350N-gaming WiFi motherboards to enlarge the zones between the CPU socket and DIMM slots so that the motherboard can support larger CPU coolers and other components, and improve the air circulation at the same time. End-users can install memory modules with larger coolers without any interference.
