Any chance you got a look at the mSTX motherboard? I'd love to know if they have an onboard 2 pin DC in like they did on their demo STX board last year.

I don't think Drew did - by the time he got to Gigabyte, they were beginning to pack up, so there wasn't really anyone around to help.

Oh boy. BRIX, SBC, Bear Ridge. Were they mixing PC desktops with motherboard dimensions ?

The Z270N-Gaming 5 looks so good, it has the USB3.0 and SATA connectors in the perfect place for my case, but damn that is some sparse I/O if I've ever seen some and the GIGABYTE GAMING lettering is a obnoxious. At least that part looks like a nice flat surface that would lend itself very well for a custom sticker or something like that.

Did anyone else notice that the Z270N-Gaming 5 supports bifurcation?
Unfortunately, there's still no product page on Gigabyte's website, but the inclusion of an Alpine Ridge controller would sway me from Asrock's current offering.

Didn't know where this belonged but since it was a Gigabyte product at CES hope others find this as amazing as I did.

Gamers Nexus teardown of Gigabyte BRIX VR (video link)

Seems they used the BRIX UHD chassis but refreshed it with a Kaby Lake processor, GTX 1060 and a newer heatsink for better thermals.

That actually looks pretty interesting, after watching the video. I may have to recommend one to a friend.

Product page now up for the GA-Z270N-Gaming 5.
Unfortunately they're using an ASMedia controller for the USB 3.1 Gen 2 so no Thunderbolt 3 :(
It does feature an RGBW header and support for their OC Touch Panel if you're into that sort of thing...
