Introduction

Today we venture into the world of the new extremely high-end AMD X570 motherboards, most of which cost as much if not more than their X299 counterparts, which says a lot in itself. With the X370 and X470 chipsets, costs were a bit lower since there was no PCI-E 4.0, but now with the new technology, boards cost more if they implement the new technology.

However, AMD's high-end CPUs with comparable performance to their Intel counterparts as well as this increased base cost made many motherboard vendors re-evaluate their whole "only Intel extremely high-end motherboard" practices, and they have launched some very top notch motherboards. The Xtreme is one from GIGABYTE taking aim at the extreme high-end of the market, so let's see what it has to offer.
