GIGABYTE's X299 Aorus Gaming 7 PRO is GIGABYTE's answer to Intel's HCC (12+ core) CPUs, which pull over 200 with ease. The new CPUs, which were released months after Intel's ten core and below X299 HEDT processors, have much higher power requirements than their predecessors.
Many people have also started to move their systems on to test benches, which offers terrible cooling by default since there are no fans designed to produce internal pressure gradients and turbulence so that air moves over all the heat sinks, so vendors went back to the drawing board to take care of extreme use cases and improve on existing ones.
GIGABYTE totally redesigned the VRM of the X299 Aorus Gaming 7 and made a few changes, so let's look at what's different.
The X299-Aorus Gaming 7 PRO features three M.2 slots, many USB 3.1 ports, digital RGB LED support, 3-way SLI, and SATA6Gb/s, and 121dB SNR audio.
The X299-Aorus Gaming 7 PRO has not been released, but its predecessor costs $399.99.
