Photos of Gigabyte's Z87 motherboard as well

In addition to MSI's Z87 MPower Max motherboard, one of Gigabyte's Haswell creations has also been unveiled to the world. This GA-Z87X-OC motherboard has an orange and black colour scheme with the Z87 chipset being covered by a large heatsink. Aside from four PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots and a PCI-E 3.0 x1 slot, two traditional PCI-slots are also present. Two USB 2.0 ports can be seen next to the six SATA 6 Gbit/s connectors..

As mentioned earlier, Gigabyte's Z87 series of motherboards features UEFI DualBIOS. The back I/O consists of USB 2.0, USB 3.0, PS/2, LAN, HDMI, DisplayPort and both analog and digital audio outputs. The board has an 8+4-pin CPU power connector, which allows it to draw more power during overclocks. A 6-pin connector can be found next to the expansion slots, which can be used to provide additional power to a graphics card. By means of the EPS-connector, special overclock buttons and a so-called Lightning button, even people with no overclocking experience can get the most out of their Haswell chip.

Gigabyte's GA-Z87X-OC will launch simultaneously with the new Haswell processors at a still undisclosed price.
