Since AMD announced its intention to release the Ryzen 3000 series processors during Computex, GIGABYTE unveiled a number of X570 motherboards to complement its release. The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Pro is offered with and without Wi-Fi, a Realtek ALC1220-VB audio codec, Intel Gigabit LAN, and an HDMI 2.0 output.

The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Pro and Pro Wi-Fi both share the same PCB, aesthetics and overall circuitry, with the only difference coming in the wireless connectivity; users can sacrifice Wi-Fi 6 and BT 5.0 for a small $10 price difference between both models. The positioning in GIGABYTE's X570 product stack slots it between the more premium X570 Aorus Ultra ($299), and the highly cost-effective X570 Aorus Elite ($199). The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Pro benefits from a 14-phase power delivery which is suitable for enthusiasts looking to squeeze out some extra performance from the new Ryzen 3000 series processors, but support is backwards compatible for the 2000 series too should users wish to use them; without Ryzen 3000 however, the PCIe 4.0 lanes will revert to PCIe 3.0.

A total of four RAM slots sit towards the right-hand side, while the bottom area is dominated by three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots at x16, x8/x8, and x8/x8/x4, as well as two M.2 slots each with their own individual heat shields. Users can also make use of the six available SATA ports, and for networking, a single Intel Gigabit Ethernet port is present on the rear panel. Other connections include onboard audio connectors powered by the Realtek ALC1220-VB, a single USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, two USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, three USB 3.1 G1 Type-A, and four USB 2.0 ports. A single HDMI 2.0 video output is also present for users looking to utilize one of AMD's Ryzen based APUs.

The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Pro has an MSRP of $249, while the X570 Aorus Pro Wi-Fi is set to cost just $10 more at $259. Both models are scheduled to be released at the same time as the AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors on 7/7.

    Your trolling right? If not Interesting. You are the first person I have seen trying to blame millennials for the future sales of next-gen consoles. What you talking about is a simple fact of a free market and has been happing in industries since money was created. If you think the high-end pc component world is expensive I can't imagine what you would think of the high-end car world trends. Or realy anything else. Also you do relize Millennials are current in 2019 22-37 so ie the generations doing most of the work....

    Your M5A97 was one of the cheapest boards you could even put a FX processor in at $119. Kind of dishonest to call it "midrange" in my opinion. There were plenty of 990FX boards that launched around $250, and that price was pretty much capped because if you were going to spend that much money you might as well just have bought Intel for better performance.

    These X570 boards are the enthusiast chipset and are priced accordingly to what people are willing to spend for high-end boards. There's plenty of great X470/B450 boards around $150 or less that will handle an overclocked 12C Ryzen 3000 just fine. If you must have guaranteed PCIe gen4 there will be B550 boards coming soon to fill that gap too.

    Nope. The cheapest ones were like 2x cheaper. It was solid mid range.As you yourself explained it, because high end ones were like 200-250$.
    The 250$ 990FX boards were high end.
    Now high end boards are 350-1000$ .But yea, ok , lets exclude the watercooled mobo.
    Gigabyte master is 600$.
    This is the same mechanism that apple puts every year.Of course they started earlier co they just arrived at a 1K for a monitor stand.You can ofcourse, call it an enthusiast stand that people are willing to pay for.Thats your right. I call it horseshit.

    So the new mid range price is $250 USD yay for people in other parts of the world. So in Canada that becomes $334 and that's just with the exchange rate from US to CAD. Now we have to factor in the Greed factor and of coarse taxes. So about $399.99-$419.99 plus tax. I am not willing to pay $400 for a mid tier board that's stupid crazy. I was planning on getting a new Ryzen system this summer and going with a top end board and was expecting about $279.99-$319.99 as they have been in the past for the top end stuff I am not going to pay $600+ for a board that should not cost more than $349.99. These companies need to wake up and give their head a shake. I am hoping this is either wrong or just a Gigabyte thing and probably ASUS as well. Maybe ASRock will have more sane price. I had never considered them but if they have a decent board at a decent price they will be getting my money this time.

    In the past I have either gone with ASUS or Gigabyte and their top end stuff. I have noticed that lately ASUS have tag every product as ROG whether it is top end or mid range. It used to be only ASUS's top tier stuff such as boards got their ROG logo on it. I guess those days are over and even the random junk now gets the ROG stamp of approval as well.

    I did a bit of a rant in another post about the prices of these new boards forgetting that these prices are for new products and as always they will most likely come down over a short time in the retail market once the retail outlets start to try to out sell their competition. So I guess if you are in the market for a new system the key here is the wait about 2-3 months and get a new board for a more sane price after the sticker prices go down a bit.

    I am going to be in the market for a new system but am fine with waiting for a few months to try to get a good deal on a new board and my other hardware. Then there will be Black Friday deals as well which could be a great time to pick up one of these new boards at 30% off on a Black Friday deal plus the already lowered sticker price.
  • RaV[666] - Friday, June 7, 2019 - link

    I also will wait until at least end of summer. I dont need new pc in the summer :).
    But i dont think they will get reasonably cheaper in that time.And most of the world doesnt really get black friday deals.I just hate overpaying, i paid 200$ for my current x99 mobo and already thought it was a rip off. But it was HEDT and has quad channel 10 satas so on.
    but now it looks like its gonna be more like 300$ for a board that has much less.

    Stop spamming the comments, and don't act like B550 boards will never exist
  • rocky12345 - Saturday, June 8, 2019 - link

    If you are talking to me I am sorry but I will comment if I want to...enough said on that. As for the B550 boards thiose are not even listed yet as to when the release dates are. Besides that why should we have to resort to buying lower end stuff just because some of these companies are trying to drive up the prices to insane pricing and you get some uninformed people that have little to no clue what crap should be worth pay these higher prices without batting an eye. Not everyone or at least people with fully functioning brains are willing to pay extortion pricing type prices. Like I said in a past post about this I will just wait a few months and get the board I want at the price I deem as fair. It won't be a second string B550 series either it will be top tier x570 but at the price I am willing to pay I do not have to be the first on the block to have it so I will end up saving and still get what I want.

    Lol rocky12345 keep talking you realize you're still digging right? It sounds like you are just a kid who is salty your income/budget is not high enough to buy what you want on launch day. Have you ever heard something is worth what people are willing to pay for it? Also when you take into account the increased complexity on tolerances needed for newer motherboards and inflation motherboards price's have not changed that much the last two decades. You could argue there has been the creation of a new class of motherboards in the last 10 years. This new tier of high-end MBs catering to people who have the budget and who want the best regardless of practicality. Of which that aligns more with your rants in your comments. But that means your logic of comparing top tier X570 MB as equivalent to whatever top MB you could get 10 years is not valid.

    What about the B-Series boards? Any word on them?

    I most definately won't spend more than a 100 bucks on a board to stick a $200 R5-3600 into.
