Today we venture into the world of AMD's newest chipset, the X570 chipset, on GIGABYTE's X570 Aorus Master. The Master is typically the second rung from the top of the stack when it comes to GIGABYTE motherboards, and what we have here today is a very loaded motherboard.
AMD's new X570 chipset and platform offer all PCI-E 4.0, which is double the speed of PCI-E 3.0, and it's the first platform with the new standard. AMD did top Intel's Z300 series platform by bringing integrated 10 Gbps USB to the chipset, and now they have done it again with PCI-E 4.0. For now, the differences are going to mainly be seen with PCI-E 4.0 M.2 SSDs, but as time goes on we will see more devices take advantage. Let's see what this motherboard has to offer.
The X570 Aorus Master features three PCI-E 4.0 M.2 slots, a 2.5G NIC, a 2.4G WIFI controller, an Intel Gbit NIC, tons of 10Gb/s USB, and high-end audio.
The X570 Aorus Master costs around $360
