AMD will be revealing its next-gen Zen 2 architecture in the coming months, which will bring big improvements in clock speeds, IPC performance, power efficiency, and much more. In this blend of announcements we will also see the new X570 chipset released, which will deliver PCIe 4.0 for the first time ever.
We've already seen some leaks of upcoming ASUS motherboards, but now it's time for a gander at the GIGABYTE range of X570 motherboards which will be led by the flagship X570 AORUS Extreme motherboard. There's also some X499 motherboards which will work with the Threadripper 3000 series processors, which will be using the Zen 2 architecture on 7nm with up to 32C/64T.
The full list of GIGABYTE X570 motherboards:
- X570 AORUS XTREME
- X570 AORUS MASTER
- X570 AORUS ULTRA
- X570 AORUS ELITE
- X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI

The upcoming GIGABYTE X499 motherboards will include the X499 Designare EX-10G which should ship with 10GbE connectivity, although we don't know if it is an on-board NIC or offered by GIGABYTE as an expansion card. We'll know closer to, and at Computex 2019 which is less than a couple of months away now.
