I have heard that gigabyte are downgrading their motherboards by just doing a refurbishment of the previous ones, adding a little power and rebranding them They are not doing it without telling customers since they are labeled Rev 1.1, Rev 3.0 etc. Why do they have to do this? Is this the norm with other brands? Can a refurbished board have more power than a new one?
Is there a mobo downgrade?
Yes, it's true that Gigabyte is selling refurbished motherboard- I have one actually. But these motherboards that I know are really sold as refurbished. I believe you're confused with the label, "rev x.xx", it's just a label that determines the version of the motherboard. Think of it as a software update version. Going back, to answer your question, I don't think so, since these refurbished motherboards are usually those that are returned for warranty.
