GIGABYTE X99 GAMING-5P

X99 Gaming 5P

Here with me, is one of GIGABYTE’s latest X99 motherboard. Specifically, the GAMING 5P that is as you’ve guessed by now, part of the CHAMPION series.

What this socket does, is primarily allow better memory overclocking and support whilst unlocking the Uncore frequencies past the 3500MHz limit of previous iterations. It is in a way a silent admission by GIGABYTE that the previous motherboards,  were not up to the standard they would have wanted. It is a do-over but one not treated as such publicly and in fact with this particular model there’s some sense to that in the following ways.

EVGA is no stranger to high end motherboard and graphics cards. In fact the firm seems to have a better time making high end gear than mid-range or low end products. For the most part one finds that at the echelon of any platform or generation of products, EVGA is right there in the battle mixing it up with the best of them. With the X99 platform, EVGA has once again managed to produce its best motherboards to date.

In the perfect world, or at least that of a modern day sensible PC gaming enthusiast, we would all have 27” UHD monitors. These would not only be G-Sync enabled, but would support active stereoscopic technology such as 3D Vision. In addition to this they would be IPS or PLS displays with 1ms response times and all the latest input methods including, but not limited to HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.3.
