    "They reasoned that the firm's restructured motherboard division has yet to get on the track of smooth operation"... Uhmm, yes, working on NOT breaking system boot after each BIOS update would be beneficial for their sales...

    First it reads as if they have declining sales due to decreased mining mainboard demand, then it states that other companies have been able to work against such a huge drop by selling high end gaming boards to miners.

    What a joke, i saw a documentary from one of their factory and they were making ~ 400.000 motherboards per month.. and i had a problem getting a good board fom my R7 1700 and now after 2 weeks they have only 2 models for the 2xxx series and those are both over 150 euro. :(

    @Rihter: yes! I had a older bios and i wanted a newer for the 2xxx series but i tried 3 and all were bad, i couldn't enter bios after setting my memory at 2733 Mhz unless i removed the battery (previously it worked at 2800 but not with with those 3).
    Finally they released a newer one and my memory works at 2800 Mhz, i can enter bios everytime, and it has support for 2xxx so this will be the last bios.

    Now i have problems with my gigabit ethernet port. :(

    Well my current motherboard still works fine.

    Why should i replace it every year for 1% performance increase?

    Great news. Gigabyte bios is crappy & released too many revision that come with lousy VRM.

    I stopped buying Mobos from them because they use a proprietary fan controller (datasheet not available) that does not work with My beloved app SpeedFan. Gigabyte : don't provide your datasheet ? I will not provide my money!

    Amount of PCs is going down as well, so it's only to be expect. With those prices I don't blame people.

    Next motherboard for me will take me back to Asus. Though I love the look of the board(Aorius X399), the support by Gigabyte has been horrendous to say the least. We have not had a BIOS update since last October to address any of the issues. Get your act together Gigabyte.

    In 2016 I bought their highest-end (at that time) GA-X99-Ultra Gaming

    It works fine...
    ...as long as I don't power off or reboot the computer.

    BIOS is complete crap.

    (Previous ones had BIOS problems as well, randomly losing settings, switching by itself to "alternate" bios with it's own independent config - which was obviously wrong, perfectly working overclock settings magically vanishing - being reset - just because of a power failure, Intel RAID suddenly not being enabled... and other nightmarish boot issues)

    My last Gigabyte board ever.

    I previously owned the GA-P45-UD3R with a Q6600 OC'd to 3GHz and used it for almost 8 years non-stop before upgrading. My brother uses it now and it's still going strong. I now own the GA-Z170X-UD5 with a Skylake 6600. So far so good (about 2 years now), but I haven't bothered OC'ing yet. I hope they work their issues out and can improve their reputation. I've been happy with them so far (though I've owned Asus, ECS, Zotak, ASRock, MSI and Abit boards, and they've all performed pretty well, though the ECS wasn't a good overclocker).
