Gigabyte X570 AORUS Master Motherboard Review

AORUS X570 Master
The latest range of Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs are here at last. With that, we also have the launch of the latest X570 motherboards, and even new graphics cards from AMD too. It seems we’re spoilt for new hardware this week! Speaking of spoilt, I’ve also had the high-end AORUS X570 Master motherboard from AORUS!
Equipped with support for the latest Ryzen CPUs, it’s a high-end solution built for extreme gaming and workstation performance. You’ll find an impressive 14 Phases Digital VRM, providing big overclocking performance. There’s also three ultra-fast NVMe PCIE4.0 M.2 mounts for the latest flagship storage drives. If that’s not enough, dual LAN and WiFI; including 2.5GbE and WiFi 6!
The list of features on this motherboard is enough to make you drool. What’s more crazy is this isn’t even the top end model. We still have the AORUS Xtreme for those who really want to empty their wallets; we’ll take a look at that at a later date though.

Please keep in mind that Ryzen X570 motherboards only support Ryzen 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen CPUs. Despite being AM4 sockets, they do not currently work with Ryzen 1st Gen processors. Furthermore, for those wanting to use the full PCIe 4.0 functionality, you’ll also need to use the latest 3rd Gen CPUs.
4K Preview and Unboxing
Last week we brought you a preview of this motherboard here. Plus, Andy did a lovely unboxing preview which you can check out below! Because we did the preview, we’ve already been over the features on this motherboard like we would in our “A Closer Look” section. So that has been replaced with a “photo gallery” on this review; we don’t need to tell you everything twice!
