Gaming dedicated motherboards have a crazy over-growing demand and Gigabyte is fully aware of the scenario. The Aorus lineup has helped us with this to a great extent and the Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 was the best option but the price tag of £245 was an amount to worry a bit. Gigabyte has responded to the problem with this effective reply and even those who didn’t buy the Gaming 7 mobo, have a great chance to get something more interesting, the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming.

The company has slid down the price tag to £158 and to our surprise, the features are somehow better than the Gaming 7 itself. Speaking of the features, what makes it different from the Gaming 7 mobo, is that you only get two M.2 slots and a single Gigabit Ethernet port.
