Gigabyte today officially announced to launch its new motherboard line based on AMD’s X570 chipset and AM4 socket, the X570S AORUS. There are five versions: X570S Gaming X, X570S AORUS Pro AX, X570S UD, X570S AERO G, and X570S AORUS Master. This new lineup comes to further harness the potential of the recently released AMD Ryzen 5000.
Unlike the previous X570 AORUS models that came with fans on the heatsinks, this new series comes with passive heatsinks. This time its Fins Array II heatsinks, as well as Direct Contact heat pipes and Smart Fan 6, are the integrated technologies that provide stability during heavy use while keeping cool.
The entire series is equipped with up to four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots with Thermal Guard III, which provides better heat dissipation so NVMe SSDs can run at 7000 MB/s without overheating. The top-of-the-line model, the X570S AORUS Master, is equipped with 16 phases for optimized power management, especially when overclocking.
The entire X570S line is equipped with 2.5GbE high-speed network ports, plus WIFI 6 at 2.4Gbps, WIFI 6E 802.11ax, and USB-C 3.2 on the front. The Master, Pro AX and AERO G models feature the new Active OC Tuner overclocking technology, which provides fast control of frequencies and number of active cores.
“These new motherboards will further showcase the incredible performance of AMD Ryzen 5000 processors and maximize their potential for enthusiasts, gamers, and content creators,” said Chris Kilburn, vice president and general manager of customer service at AMD.
Jackson Hsu, director of Gigabyte’s product development division, said, “The X570S series was designed by gamers and professionals dedicated to performance. With advanced VRM design, quiet fanless passive cooling, and PCIe 4.0, these new boards are the best choices for enthusiasts looking to leverage the AMD platform.”
