TR's 12 days of giveaways, day 10: an AMD mobo and CPU combo


— 8:03 AM on December 23, 2015

TR's 12 days of giveaways has reached double digits. To kick off day 10, we're happy to announce that Jason Kwong‚Äč is the winner of yesterday's Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI motherboard. Congratulations, Jason. Look for a message soon from our business guy, Adam Eiberger, with instructions on how to claim your prize. A big thanks to Gigabyte for making yesterday's giveaway possible.

For today's giveaway, Gigabyte wrapped up one of its GA-970-Gaming motherboards for us. To make this prize package even sweeter, AMD sent us one of its FX-8370 CPUs to go with the board.

The GA-970-Gaming is about as tricked out as AMD motherboards get. It supports USB 3.1 transfer speeds, and a USB Type-C port will let our winner put that speed to good use. It also has a PCIe Gen2 x2 M.2 slot for transfer speeds up to 10Gb/s with NVMe and SATA PCIe SSDs. An upgradable op-amp complements the board's premium Realtek ALC1150 audio codec. Gigabyte's DualBIOS, a Killer E2200 NIC, and two-way CrossFire support round out the feature list.

Our winner will also get an 8-core AMD FX-8370 CPU to put in the GA-970-Gaming's CPU socket. The FX-8370 is the fastest 125W AMD chip around with its 4GHz base and 4.3GHz turbo clocks.
