    GIGABYTE shows GIGABYTE GA-X99-Gaming G1 WiFi motherboard

    Following the foot steps of GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-Gaming G1 WiFi, GIGABYTE GA-X99-Gaming G1 WiFi is packed with both gaming (fancy audio, LAN and WiFi chips) and overclocking (on-board buttons and debug led, measuring points, etc) features, probably aiming towards the top of the high-end segment.

    I miss the green and black theme on their Gaming boards, but this board is also good looking as well. At least they ditched those stupid military gun heatsinks they used previously, that looked pathetic and ugly.

    Ooooooh. Me likey

    Have either of these got M.2 sockets on board?

    I refuse to participate in any debate with creationists because doing so would give them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want.
    Creationists don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters to them is that I give them recognition by bothering to argue with them in public.

    Gigabyte boards tend to be kind of bland but certainly reliable. There is nothing wrong with them. The same cannot be said of MSI.
    Particle's First Rule of Online Technical Discussion:
    As a thread about any computer related subject has its length approach infinity, the likelihood and inevitability of a poorly constructed AMD vs. Intel fight also exponentially increases.

    Rule 1A:
    Likewise, the frequency of a car pseudoanalogy to explain a technical concept increases with thread length. This will make many people chuckle, as computer people are rarely knowledgeable about vehicular mechanics.

    Rule 2:
    When confronted with a post that is contrary to what a poster likes, believes, or most often wants to be correct, the poster will pick out only minor details that are largely irrelevant in an attempt to shut out the conflicting idea. The core of the post will be left alone since it isn't easy to contradict what the person is actually saying.

    Rule 2A:
    When a poster cannot properly refute a post they do not like (as described above), the poster will most likely invent fictitious counter-points and/or begin to attack the other's credibility in feeble ways that are dramatic but irrelevant. Do not underestimate this tactic, as in the online world this will sway many observers. Do not forget: Correctness is decided only by what is said last, the most loudly, or with greatest repetition.

    Rule 3:
    When it comes to computer news, 70% of Internet rumors are outright fabricated, 20% are inaccurate enough to simply be discarded, and about 10% are based in reality. Grains of salt--become familiar with them.

    Remember: When debating online, everyone else is ALWAYS wrong if they do not agree with you!

    Random Tip o' the Whatever
    You just can't win. If your product offers feature A instead of B, people will moan how A is stupid and it didn't offer B. If your product offers B instead of A, they'll likewise complain and rant about how anyone's retarded cousin could figure out A is what the market wants.

    Assuming Gigabyte is still packing in the GC-WB867D-I card with the "WiFi" boards, they're upgradeable as it's really just a PCI-E card with an mPCI-e card installed.

    [EDIT] I took a closer look, Gigabyte opted to ditch the PCI-E adapter and just connect the mPCIe card directly to the mobo. Upgradable either way!

    Ditch the WiFi, stick an SSD in there instead. Done.

    if you look really close there is another of the same m-pci like slots right behind the first one, for m-sata drives isn't there?

    Wifi? Honestly, who really cares? Can't see the I/O panel, so this might be included, but I'd rather dual good NICs over an on-board Wifi chip - I'd imagine the vast majority of their target 'gaming' market would rather game on an IGP rather than over a wireless connection, and if for whatever reason you do need wireless USB dongles are cheap and upgradeable.

    +1.

    I can't see any need for inbuilt WiFi on a desktop motherboard at all. Small-format items meant to be portable, then obviously that makes sense, but desktop machines need good wired connections, not unreliable WiFi, especially the high-end ones. This is a modern gimmick that just adds marketing bullet points and bloats motherboard costs unnecessarily when USB adapters are easily added if required by end users.

    And for many, WiFi is NOT the only or best solution if wired Ethernet is not an option - Ethernet over mains works superbly for me when WiFi just created problems here. I'll certainly never pay for wasted onboard WiFi hardware.
