GIGABYTE teases Ryzen ready AORUS motherboard
GIGABYTE boards the Ryzen hype train with their AORUS AM4-ready mobo.
As the official release of AMD’s much talked about Ryzen processor draws near, computer hardware manufacturers are also preparing their brands and products for the much-awaited unveiling, one of which would be GIGABYTE with their preview of the GA-AX370-Gaming 5 under their AORUS sub-brand.
Sadly, apart from the gallery which sports the GA-AX370 Gaming 5’s clean look, there isn’t any other available information regarding the specifications and pricing of what is presumably the first, and perhaps the flagship model of GIGABYTE’s AM4 motherboards under the AORUS brand, however, a quick dissection by Kitguru tells us the following facts about some of its components:
- x3 Full Size PCIExpress ports
- x3 NVME M.2 PCIE Connectors
- x2 PCIExpress x16 ports
- 4 DIMM slots
- PS/2 combi port
- x4 USB 3.0 ports (rear panel)
- x2 USB 2.0 ports (rear panel)
- x3 USB 3.1 ports (rear panel)
- x1 USB 3.0 Type C port (rear panel)
- x2 Ethernet ports
- x5 3.5mm audio ports
- x1 HDMI slot
Some details on the board itself also confirm that it will employ Dual UEFI Bios and support multi-GPU setups via AM’s CrossFireX and NVIDIA’s SLI tech.
There is no word yet regarding the availability of the AORUS GA-AX370-Gaming 5, however, we are to assume that a full announcement will be made once Ryzen is officially revealed by AMD, presumably in the coming weeks.
