Gigabyte B760M Aorus Elite AX Motherboard Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
While we love the high-end Z-series of motherboards, more often than not, they’re complete overkill for what most people actually need. If you don’t need crazy amounts of I/O, networking technologies and overclocking features, the B760M chipset has most of the high-end thrills, but often at a significantly lower price. However, cheaper though they may be, the Aorus line is the more high-end stuff from Gigabyte, so it’ll likely be one of the more advanced B760M series motherboards too.
Gigabyte B760M Aorus Elite AX
As you can see from the features list, this motherboard is packing some impressive features, so it’s sure to be able to get some great performance from the latest 12th or 13th-generation Intel CPUs. That starts with a robust 12+1+1 Phases Digital VRM and some pretty decent-sized heatsinks too. There’s the latest DDR5 memory support, as well as PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 storage. There’s fast networking with 2.5GbE LAN & Intel Wi-Fi 6E 802.11ax, and you even get USB-C 10Gb/s and 20Gb/s options. Really, this is a very high-end motherboard in its own right, but the best aspect? It’s micro-ATX, and honestly, we just don’t see enough motherboards in this form factor these days!
