GIGABYTE 8 Series Motherboards

GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards support the latest 4th Generation Intel® Core™ processors, bringing together a unique blend of features and technologies that offer the absolute ultimate platform for your next PC build. From high current capable digital power delivery, performance-enhancing caching technologies, exclusive high-end audio features, advanced networking and device charging, gold plated hardware connectors and of course, killer good looks, GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards are in a class of their own.

Next Gen Intel® 8 Series Platform

The latest Intel 8 Series platform offers significant improvements in performance and power consumption with the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® B85 chipsets. As well as a boost in overall productivity, the latest HD4600 Intel® processor graphics provide native 4K resolution playback over standard HDMI connectivity, with significantly higher frame rates in the latest DX11 3D game titles.


GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 Plus

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 Plus debuts on GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards, with a range of features and component choices that provide record-breaking performance, cool and efficient operation and extended motherboard lifespan.


Ultra Performance

GIGABYTE uses All Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.



Ultra Safe

GIGABYTE motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a "Main BIOS" and a "Backup BIOS," making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.



Featuring a gold-plated USB 2.0 port, GIGABYTE USB DAC-Up provides clean, noise-free power delivery to your Digital-to-Analog Converter. DACs can be sensitive to fluctuations in power from the other USB ports, which is why GIGABYTE USB DAC-Up takes advantage of an isolated power source that minimizes potential fluctuations and ensures the best audio experience possible.


GIGABYTE USB DAC-Up also allows the port to be configured in BIOS for enthusiast system configurations which do not require USB power to the DAC. This makes it suitable for high-end audio enthusiasts building extreme fidelity audio systems.

Intel® Gigabit LAN

The latest GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards come equipped with Intel® Gigabit LAN networking, a popular choice with gamers that features several performance-enhancing features such as advanced interrupt handling to help reduce CPU overhead and Jumbo Frame support for extra large data packets.


High ESD Protection for USB and LAN (USB 3.0 Only)

GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards raise the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.


One Fuse per USB Port (USB 3.0 Only)

On GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards each USB port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to safe guard your important data during transfer


4K Ultra HD Support

4K Resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated Intel® HD Graphics via HDMI.


DirectX 11 Support

Better Visual Experience
Microsoft DirectX 11 provides eye-popping 3D visuals found for today's latest PC games and is designed to be more efficient, leverage the power of today's multi-core processors, and provide support for sophisticated shading and texturing techniques such as tessellation.


HDMI™ - The Next Generation Multimedia Interface

HDMI™ is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gbps video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI™ ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI™ is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.


DVI-I Support

DVI-I (Digital Visual Interface) is a video interface standard designed for carrying uncompressed digital video data (both digital and analog), and to maximize the visual quality of digital display devices, such as LCD monitors, digital projectors, and so on. In addition, the DVI interface is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).


On/Off Charge Technology

GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst product I've ever used, literally!!

Pros: Cheap
Offered what I needed

Cons: Didn't work, didn't work, didn't work, didn't work, didn't work.

Other Thoughts: The board didn't work from the get go. I replaced it and the replacement didn't work. I replaced that and it worked, for nearly a year. This last January 2016, it broke again. I replaced it, they sent a broken one. I replaced it, they sent another faulty one. I got that one working, for a little while. This last May 2016, it broke.

Gigabyte also has the worst customer service I've ever dealt with. It takes them 4 days to respond to an RMA, they give you the troubleshooting run around, even though you posted in your original post that you did everything they just listed for you to try. A few more days later, the accept the RMA and make you pay to ship it to them. Then they take 3 1/2 weeks to send you a BROKEN replacement and make you go through it all over again. I think they have a load of these broken boards, and instead of testing them when they get them back, they send them out for replacements. When it comes back a second time, then maybe the do something about it. The customer is their tech repair!

And yes, I know what I'm doing. Everything else in my computer works perfectly and is now working perfectly with a different name brand motherboard. I was a Gigabyte fan for about a year. I will no longer purchase ANYTHING from them nor recommend anyone else purchase anything from them.

1 out of 5 eggsGARBAGE

Pros: The price was alright, but I cheaped out on my mobo and now I'm paying for it.

Cons: This thing died out in just over a year. I'm not going to bother with an RMA, I'm just never buying MSI again. I should have stuck with Asus, as I've never had issues with their mobos, not this quickly at least.

Other Thoughts: It couldn't have died at a worse time.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Gigabyte mobo

Pros: Has all the features that I needed for my first ITX build. Updating the BIOS was easy. I thought I would give Gigabyte a try and it's been solid so far.

Cons: Nothing major, but I'm experiencing a weird issue with my Corsair K70 keyboard and Logitech gaming mouse. They can be activated after the system is shut down. It's probably a USB power issue.

Other Thoughts: Installed in a Corsair Obsidian 250D case with H100i CPU cooler and it was challenging to plug in the front panel and CPU power connectors, because of their location on the board. Would not have this problem if I went with a smaller cooler than the H100i. It's better to install the cooler last with the fans attached to the radiator.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Looked likd a good price for a decent motherboard

Cons: DOA and having to go through the hassle of getting a refund. From the the number of reviews and number of issues I would recommend - buy another brand which I did with success.

5 out of 5 eggsGood mini-ITX motherboard

Pros: Works. Has msata and mini-pcie.

Cons: Has the expected limitations of mini-ITX and B85. Only room for 2 DIMMs, 1 pcie card, etc.

Other Thoughts: I put an i7-4770 and a Crucial M500 mSATA SSD in it. Very powerful and very small. I didn't use it, but the location and vertical orientation of the mini-pcie port is perfect for a wlan card.
