X299-Aorus Gaming 9 Circuit Analysis Continued
A Realtek ALC1220 audio codec is used in conjunction with an ESS Sabre 9018Q2C, and Nichicon audio capacitors.
A 10Gbit NBase-T AQC107 which offers up to 10Gbig, 5Gbit, 1Gbit, and 100Mbit speeds, and they added an Intel i219v for Gbit LAN. An Intel Wireless AC 9260 rated up to 1.733Gbps with BT 5.0.
Rear USB 3.1 comes from an ASMedia ASM3142 along with an ASM1543 switch that controls the type-C port. There is another ASM3142 used for the internal USB 3.1 header.
Two ASMedia ASM1074 are used to expand USB 3.0 for four of the rear USB 3.0 and the two internal USB 3.0 headers. We find a single ASM1454 USB 3.0 re-driver, perhaps for the USB flashback port on the rear IO.
We find a clock generator labeled Pro Clock II. A chip labeled BIOS is responsible for USB BIOS Flashback.
The Nuvoton NCT6796D is the main SuperIO. Two 128Mbit BIOS ROMs are used for redundancy.
Two chips labeled TPU help with fan control and other unique features such as the OC features on the motherboard.
An AURA chip facilitates the RGB LEDs on the motherboard and headers. The SMT32F is used to control the OLED display in the IO cover.
