On the occasion of the introduction of the second generation of the Ryzen Threadripper, Gigabyte presented its latest high-end motherboard X399 Aorus Xtreme. The beautiful one should be designed for the showcase with 32 hearts of this series, the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX.
This X399 AORUS Xtreme integrates a 10+3 phase digital power supply system with an amplified cooling system. It supports 4-way CrossFire/SLI configurations and embeds an ESS Sabre DAC. It includes advanced connectivity with USB Type-C, a triple LAN environment with 10 Gbit port and a Wi-Fi dual-band solution.

We mentioned a reinforced cooling system. This is done in the VRM area of the Direct Touch Heatpipe. The use of heatpipes ensures heat transfer to the fins. The system has two 30mm fans located under the I/O Armo. If necessary, the card activates it.
Gigabyte relies on the high-quality and durable side of its solution. For heavy duty environments, a reinforced nano carbon plate is used to optimize heat dissipation. A 6-pin power connector is provided on the board to ensure the stability of the various graphics cards.
The technical sheet mentions a triple connection M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 compatible RAID NVMe. Each M.2 unit has a heat sink. A dual Intel i210AT GbE LAN solution comes with a 10 GbE LAN port managed by an Aquantia controller. An Intel Wireless module offers Dual Band 802.11ac and BT 4.2.
A Realtek ALC1220-VB audio codec and an ESS Sabre DAC for the audio part are also included. Finally, the RGB is not forgotten with multi-zone LED lighting, which can be adapted via the RGB fusion application.
Gigabyte does not indicate a tariff. This motherboard is being referenced. We found it about $450.
