GIGABYTE Showcases New Motherboards And BRIX At Computex 2016

Posted by News Room On 0 comments

GigabyteGIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., A leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards is proud to present its new lineup of Ultra Gaming and Designare motherboards for the world to see. In light of the new Intel® 10-Core CPU, GIGABYTE has created three new X99 motherboards for users to experience the full power of this platform and not be limited by dated technologies.

Those who are lucky enough to attend Computex 2016 will have the privilege to have an up close look at GIGABYTE’s Ultra Gaming Motherboards. These motherboards were designed to redefine the gaming experience, incorporating technologies that gamers from around the world have desired to see on a desktop system. Also among the Ultra Gaming Motherboards, GIGABYTE is also displaying a solution set built for

Content Creators, Designers, and Artists, namely the Designare Motherboards. To witness what GIGABYTE has to offer this year, at the largest Asian ICT tradeshow, attendees can visit the Taipei World Trade Center, booth D0002 from May 31st until June 4th.

Intel Releases the Latest in Multi-Core Computing Technology
During Computex 2016 Intel® is debuting its latest and greatest Extreme Edition Processor. This processor is a 10-Core Desktop CPU which features improved compatibility and features such as Turbo Boost Max 3.0. Being one of the first CPU’s to support 10-Cores and 20 Threads in the consumer market, this marks a new era for desktop computing. GIGABYTE’s new X99 Ultra Gaming and Designare motherboards are built to support these enhancements and features of this CPU.

Redefining the Gaming Experience with Ultra Gaming Motherboards

GIGABYTE Ultra Gaming Motherboards are built withgamers in mind. With the future of gaming moving more towards Ultra High-Definition (UHD) content and Virtual Reality (VR), high-end components are essential to providing the best experience to the user. GIGABYTE has incorporated many features to help enhance the users experience such as: Ambient Surround LED, Hybrid Fan Control, and M.2 & U.2 support.

With more and more DIY PC Gamers building their PC to suit their personalities it only makes sense that they would want to design their PC to match their desktop’s environment. With Gamers valuing control over the aesthetics of their Gaming PC, GIGABYTE has included Ambient Surround LED so gamers can now leverage these onboard LEDs as well as the LED Strip Pin Headers, found on the Ultra Gaming Motherboards, to help immerse gamers in the center of the action. Not only can users control the color of the LED’s but also the lighting method such as beat mode, which illuminates to the sound of your music, or pulse mode that phases on and off imitating a heartbeat or breath.

Gamers are always trying to squeeze the most performance out of their system whether with more fans or with different types of cooling. GIGABYTE has made this process easier, with Hybrid Fan Control, for those users that want to customize their gaming desktop. Hybrid Fan Control allows users to use aftermarket fans that suit their needs whether the fan or pump operates under Voltage Calibration or Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Modes. This solution enables a broader range of parts and integration support into a GIGABYTE Ultra Gaming PC.

As game developers begin to trend towards ultra high-definition content it is important that the PC can keep up. By implementing M.2 & U.2 onboard GIGABYTE Motherboards, Gamers now have the technology in arms length to take advantage of newer NVMe PCIe SSDs, like Intel’s 750 NVMe. With transfer speeds almost four times that of traditional SSDs the possibilities seem endless.

Providing Solutions for Content Creators, Designers, and Artists
Often time’s users do not have the luxury to be troubled with which type of motherboard is suitable for their application. GIGABYTE has made this decision easier for Content Creators, Designers, and Artists. By making a motherboard that is focused for these users, GIGABYTE has simplified the process in searching for the right solution for creative artists. The Designare Motherboard is the perfect solution base for any user looking for a high performance computer able to withstand any application or job.

To help designers succeed in their studio and out on the job, GIGABYTE has included USB3.1 on the Designare Motherboards. This protocol is twice as fast as its predecessor, USB3.0, allowing users to transfer large files in half the time.

“Graphic artists and videographers need these tools to complete their task in a timely manner. Often times corporations do not realize how out-of-date these desktops are, causing delays and loss of valuable production time”, said Henry Kao, GIGABYTE Vice President of Motherboard Business Unit. “This solution is GIGABYTE’s answer to the common question of how companies and independent professionals can use new technologies to enhance and increase their productivity.”

As graphics and video projects grow larger and larger in size, rendering these files become tedious as Designers wait for the system to load. With the Z170X-Designare Motherboard the capability to operate three (3) Intel NVMe 750 SSDs in RAID 0 is now possible. Thus, eliminating load times that one often experienced with older desktop workstations.

Lastly, GIGABYTE will be debuting some additional products from their BRIX Lineup, the BRIX Gaming UHD as well as the GIGABYTE PC. These two gaming systems are an impeccable example of the fact that you do not need to sacrifice size for performance. The BRIX Gaming UHD weighs in at less than two thousand grams, taking up less than 2.6 liters in space. This barebone comes in both Intel Core i5 and i7 processors for the user to select from. The GIGABYTE PC is a larger system but still compact taking up only 10 liters of space with the capabilities to be upgradeable with a standard desktop graphics cards. All of these will be on display during Computex 2016 for all to see.

For more information on GIGABYTE’s newly launched motherboards or BRIX Products, or to see what other exciting products and peripherals GIGABYTE has in store be sure to visit its booth in the TWTC, Booth D0002.

IT companies of India had to pay $4000 more for every H-1B visa

Posted by News Room On Friday, May 27, 2016 0 comments

Flagship Indian IT companies would have to pay at least an additional $4,000 for every H-1B visa application under the new regulations that came into effect last December, according to details published today by a federal US agency.
And those applying for L-1 visa petitions would have to pay $4,500 more than other US companies under the new law, which would be in effect till September 30, 2025.
The H-1B visa is designed to allow US employers to recruit and employ foreign professionals in speciality occupations within the US while L-1 visas are available to employees of an international company with offices in both the US and abroad.
ndian IT firms — which have to incur an additional burden of about $400 million annually — have called it “discriminatory”, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself raising this at the highest level.
US federal Citizenship and Immigration Services ( USCIS)  posted the details of the increased fee on its website today.
For H-1B petitioners, one “must pay the additional $4,000 fee” if the company employs 50 or more employees in the US and more than half of those are in H-1B, L-1A, or L-1B non-immigrant status.
The USCIS said the additional fees needs to be a paid in a separate cheque payable to the Department of Homeland Security.
The federal agency also laid the parameters for counting the number of employees of the company.
We will count all of your full-time and part-time employees when determining whether you must pay this fee. Employees of related entities will not count,” USCIS said.
“When calculating the percentage of your employees in H-1B or L-1 status, we will calculate based on the number of employees you have in the United States, regardless of whether they are paid through a US or foreign payroll,” USCIS said.
