Is Gigabyte’s Aorus X299 Gaming World’s First Kaby Lake-X-Specific Motherboard?

Gigabyte appears to be the first company out of the gate with a Kaby Lake-X-specific motherboard via its new Aorus X299 Gaming.
After weeks of waiting, Gigabyte has announced what could very well be the world’s first Kaby Lake-X-specific motherboard. You’ll notice that even though Gigabyte’s Aorus X299 Gaming is based on Intel’s X299 chipset, the motherboard is equipped with only four DDR4 DIMM slots. (And, while we’re on the subject of DIMM slots, this motherboard supports up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR4 operating at 4,133MHz.)
