Did gigabyte leak their X499 series?

Intel HEDT X299G is X499?

Wccftech spotted Intel HEDT X499 motherboards at AORUS booth during Computex. While the stickers and leaflets were clearly labeled as X299G, the heatsinks and product names were saying otherwise.

Intel’s HEDT X299G is a refresh of X299 platform. Since the launch of the AMD X399 Threadripper chipset, it was obvious that Intel could no longer use the same name. Both manufacturers are now using names interchangeably. AMD will skip to X599 series while Intel will proceed to X499.

According to the discovery made by Wccftech, the X299G motherboards which are currently being shown at Computex are in fact the X499 series. Below is a compiled (and updated) list of HEDT platforms made by Tom’s Hardware:
