If you thought X58 and Socket 1366 were dying out following the launch of Sandy Bridge, Gigabyte wants to think you were sorely mistaken. However, whether these motherboards deliver on what they promise is something that is yet to be seen. We can’t wait to get our hands on these motherboards for confirmation.
