Gigabyte unveils X570 AORUS MASTER motherboard at Computex Taipei 2019

AMD X570 AORUS Motherboard with Direct 14 Phase Infineon Digital VRM, Fins-Array Heatsink & Direct Touch Heatpipe, Triple PCIe 4.0 M.2 with Thermal Guards, Intel® WiFi 6 802.11ax, ESS SABRE HiFi 9118, 2.5GbE+1GbE LAN, USB Type-C, RGB Fusion 2.0

AMD officially supports DDR4-3200 in the 3rd generation Ryzen. For compatiblity theboard supports 3rd gen, 2nd gen processors and those with Radeon Vega graphics. It has 4 x DDR4 DIMM slots supporting up to 128 GB of memory on board.

It uses Realtek ALC 1220 VB codec with ESS SABRE 9118 DAC for 7.1 chn audio. It also has 1 Intel GbE and 1 x Realtek GbE LAN chip on board. WiFI support standards include 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax at 2.4/5ZGHz. It also supports BT 5.0.

Pairing it up with 3rd generation Ryzen gives you PCIe 4.0 support with one PCIe x 16 and a PCIe x 8.

Using a 2nd generation will only provide PCIe 3.0 support, 1 at PCIe x 16 and the other at PCIe x 8. The two slot shares bandwidth, so when two slots are occupied, the PCIEX16 slot operates up to x8 mode only.

If used with Radeon Vega graphics processors, 1 PCIe X16 slot supporting PCIe 3.0 will run at x8. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, supporting PCIe 4.0*/3.0 and running at x4 (PCIEX4)

  • For 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processors only.
    1 x PCI Express x1 slot, supporting PCIe 4.0*/3.0
  • For 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processors only
