GIGABYTE's X299 AORUS Gaming 7 is GIGABYTE's second most expensive X299 motherboard on the market, but it's also $100 cheaper than their top of the line X299 AORUS Gaming 9. I reviewed the X299 AORUS Gaming 9 a few weeks ago, and I was impressed by the motherboard, just not quite with its price tag. The X299 AORUS Gaming 7 isn't too different than the Gaming 9, it doesn't have the huge back panel integrated IO, the rear metal shield, or three M.2 shields, but there is also another big difference.
The Gaming 7 holds a secret in its circuitry that sets it apart from the Gaming 9, in that it offers more lanes for 3-way multi-GPU configuration (x8 more), but it also doesn't offer SLI for 16 lane CPUs, it also doesn't have the same audio as the Gaming 9.
Let's take a look at how the X299 AORUS Gaming 7 stacks up.
The X299-AORUS Gaming 7 features three M.2 slots, many USB 3.1 ports, digital RGB LED support, 3-way SLI, and SATA6Gb/s, as well as 121dB SNR audio.
The X299-AORUS Gaming 7 costs $399.99.
