At Computex 2019, GIGABYTE revealed various motherboard models design on AMD's X570 chipset. Its flagship, the X570 Aorus Xtreme focuses on high-end performance and is targeted at enthusiasts with a 16-phase power delivery, triple PCIe 4.0 M.2, Wi-Fi 6, and an uprated onboard solution.

The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Xtreme takes a different approach to the rest of its X570 SKU list in that it's focused primarily on offering a comprehensive power delivery for users looking to overclock the latest Ryzen 3000 series processors. Across the majority of the boards we get Aorus themed armor where each of the three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots heatsinks is embedded into the design. The chipset heatsink onboard the X570 Aorus Xtreme is also one of the only models so far that relies on passive cooling; we know that the X570 chipset will run warmer than the previous X470 chipset due to a higher power draw. On the rear panel cover is an Aorus Falcon design, with multiple areas with RGB LEDs that users can customize with the Aorus RGB Fusion software.

There are three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots with no PCIe 4.0 x1 slots featured on this model. One of the aspects GIGABYTE has focused on other than the impressive 16-phase power delivery is the onboard audio solution. Adding to the implementation of a Realtek ALC1220 HD audio codec is an ESS Sabre 9218 DAC, with WIMA audio capacitors. The board has a dedicated power and reset switch located at the top right of the PCB, and also features a right angled 24-pin 12 V ATX motherboard power input; the CPU uses two 8-pin 12 V CPU power inputs.

It is no secret that motherboard vendors are focusing heavily on its models ahead of the launch of X570. The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus is an example of just that with a high-end feature set and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity as well as Bluetooth 5. It also has a single 10 GbE port (edit: corrected).

The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Xtreme will be available at launch, with an MSRP of $600.

    Not to mention Gigabytes eventual move to lower-end components on future revisions of the same boards. Thats a reason to not support them until this stops entirely. Reply

    Really? Was this with the VRMs? Reply

    This is a major trend that I hate. Oh crap you got the v5. Even though it doesn't indicate what revision it is anywhere online. The v1-v4 were all great so there are nothing but great reviews online. That v5 though... Reply

    Still doing that? Remind me of the AM3+ UD3P, which improved the audio and cut corners on the power delivery/control — leading to the inability to post with the multiplier set beyond 4.4 GHz. Reply

    Sometimes they eventually fix the BIOS issues, but I wouldn't buy one believing they will definitely fix it at some point. Reply

    Gigabyte changed the UD3P AM3+ board. The audio was improved, to make buyers think the 2.0 board was merely an upgrade. However, they cut down the power delivery/control so the board wouldn't post with a multiplier beyond what would take an FX to 4.4 GHz (forcing users to resort to BCLK). And, various voltage controls were locked out. Reply

    That has not been my experience recently. I used to avoid Gigabyte boards, but when I was shopping for an AM4 board for my dad's mITX cube build, I ended up with a Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WIFI board. I bought it because it was reasonably priced, was in stock with fresh BIOS so I could boot his 2200G without a loaner chip, and had Intel Wifi. The B450 boards weren't out at the time I was building it.

    I figured what the heck, it's worth a shot, I haven't bought anything Gigabyte in ages and honestly Asus kind of disappointed me last go around. My experience with this Gigabyte board was surprisingly good, and I actually liked the BIOS. Flashed the latest BIOS to get the newer AGESA, and everything has been good to go.

    If their X570 boards are comparable in overclocking capabilities, I might get one for my own build.

    Looks nice. Aesthetically much better than all their other ones because they didn't go crazy with the designs and bird on the chipset.
    Thanks to all above for checking on the 10Gig nic.

    This might be the one for me if it's the only with passive cooling.
    I wonder though, since the chipset heatsink is connected to the m.2 heatsinks if that just makes the m.2 drives run warmer when passively cooled.
