Gigabyte has showcased four AMD-based X670 motherboards boasting massive VRMs and enough USB ports for two PCs!
Our colleagues at Techpowerup published some pictures and specs of Gigabyte’s upcoming Zen 4 boards, namely the X670E Aorus Xtreme, X670E Aero D, X670E Aorus Master, and X670 Aorus Pro AX, which are all packed to the brim with ports and slots.
Gigabyte X670E Aorus Xtreme
Representing the high-end, this model has 18 105A power phases, two 8-pin CPU connectors, four PCIe Gen 5 M.2 slots, three PCIe (one Gen 5 x8, two Gen 4 x4), six SATA, four USB 2.0, six USB 3.2 Type-A, two USB Type-C (one supporting DP Alt Mode), HDMI, DisplayPort, Wi-Fi 6 and 10GbE. This board will cost around $500.
Gigabyte X670E Aero D
Targeting creators, this motherboard features 16+2+2 power phases, two 8-pin CPU connectors, three PCIe slots (one Gen 5 x16, one Gen 4 x4, and one Gen 3 x4), one PCIe M.2 Gen 5 plus three Gen 4, six SATA, two USB 4 (supporting DP Alt Mode) and Thunderbolt 3, six USB 3.2 Gen 2, Wi-Fi and 2.5GbE. This one should cost somewhere below $400. Got all that?
Gigabyte X670E Aorus Master
This one is very similar to the Aero D board. Here Gigabyte exchanges the USB 4 chip for a second PCIe Gen 5 M.2 slot and upgrades the power system to 16+2+2 105A phases. We also get two USB 2.0, eight USB 3.2 Type-A, two USB Type-C (one supporting DP Alt Mode), HDMI, DisplayPort, Wi-Fi 6 and 2.5GbE. With lower specs come lower prices, this time around $360.
Gigabyte X670 Aorus Pro AX
Last but not least, the Pro AX features 16+2+2 90A power phases, a single PCIe Gen 4 x16 for graphics cards, one PCIe Gen 4 x4 plus one Gen 3 x4, one PCIe Gen 5 M.2 plus three Gen 4 M.2 slots, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, 10 USB Type-A of different speeds, HDMI, DisplayPort, six SATA, Wi-Fi 6E and 2.5GbE. The retail price should be around $300.
All these boards look nice and all, but where are the B650 ones!
