Gigabyte X670E AORUS XTREME Motherboard Review

When it comes to getting the best performance out of the latest and greatest hardware, you’re going to want a pretty decent motherboard. Amazingly, these days, you can actually get close to flagship performance from your CPU and GPU on surprisingly affordable motherboards, at least compared to the terrifying prices of the flagship motherboards. Of course, you’re not paying a lot more just for a little extra CPU performance, it certainly goes a lot deeper than that. The Gigabyte X670E AORUS EXTREME is an absolute beast and features some of the most robust connectivity and build quality you’ll ever find on a motherboard… and it has a £699.99 MSRP that tells you it means business.

Gigabyte X670E AORUS EXTREME

The new Ryzen 7000 series processors are very impressive, but they are not as quickly adopted as some previous generations from AMD. The main reasons being you need a new motherboard due to the new AM5 socket, you need new DDR5 memory, and from the people I’ve spoken to, if you’re going that far, a new generation SSD and graphics card are desired too, so you may as well get a new PSU and case while you’re at it… So mass adoption, not so much, but I have seen quite a few people (myself included) bite the full system build bullet this generation.

As you can see though, there’s an extremely powerful VRM solution, PCIe 5.0 GPU and M.2, Gigabytes flagship Fins-Array III and Thermal Guard III cooling solutions, flagship-grade audio hardware with a plethora of features such as DTS:X Ultra, ESS SABRE, and an ESSential USB DAC for your headphones. Networking also has no compromises either, with the truly incredible Marvell AQtion 10GbE LAN and the latest WiFi 6E 802.11ax technology. If that’s not enough you get DisplayPort, HDMI, USB-C 10Gbps, Dual USB-C 20Gbps and USB4 AIC Support! It really does have it all.
