ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI join the party
As expected, since AMD has now officially lifted the NDA (non disclosure agreement) from its second generation Ryzen 2000-series Pinnacle Ridge CPUs and the shiny new X470 chipset, most, if not all motherboard makers have announced their own versions, with some launching more than one motherboard to cover a wider market range.
Confirms leaked slides for Q2 launch
Those looking to upgrade to a notebook that packs a bit more punch might be in luck as Gigabyte has hinted that Coffee Lake-H CPUs might come by the end of March, which is pretty much in line with the recently leaked slides.
Better VRM, two M.2 slots and more
Although it is scheduled to launch in April, together with the second generation Ryzen desktop CPUs, AMD's upcoming X470 chipset motherboard has already been seen at the CES 2018 show in Las Vegas.
Part of Gaming OC series with Windforce 2X cooler
It appears that the AMD AIB-partners have finally started to come up with custom RX Vega graphics cards and Gigabyte has just announced its own custom RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 graphics cards, with a custom PCB and Windforce 2X cooler.
With plenty of features
Gigabyte has unveiled a rather interesting motherboard that will be a part of its lineup based on Intel's latest Z370 chipset, the mini-ITX Z370N WiFi.
Shorter PCB and new cooler
While there is still no official confirmation that GTX 1070 Ti is a real thing, recent leaks as well as a fresh picture of Gigabyte's GTX 1070 Ti Gaming shows that we are drawing closer to the launch date.
From most, if not all partners
Despite earlier worrisome rumors that some partners might not be working on custom Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, it appears that most, if not all partners will be launching their custom RX Vega versions in late October/early November.
Gigabyte jumped the gun on its official Facebook page and released a teaser for the rumored Geforce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, suggesting it could launch soon.
Desktop market drying up
Gigabyte is expected to see its motherboard shipments fall under 13 million units in 2017 from 16-17 million units in 2016, and could struggle to maintain the 10 million level in 2018, due largely to the dwindling desktop PC and DIY markets, particularly in China that commands almost half of the global market demand.
