During Computex 2019, GIGABYTE unveiled a wide variety of X570 motherboards stretching from the entry-level X570 Gaming X to the very high-end flagship, the X570 Aorus Xtreme. The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Master slots in below the X570 Aorus Xtreme and has a range of high-end features such as 2.5 Gigabit LAN, three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, and Intel's Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax wireless interface.

The GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Master could be considered its flagship for general consumers with a price tag of $349 which situates it towards the top of the X570 range at launch. Included is support for up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory across its four slots, with three PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots each with its own individual M.2 heatsink, and six SATA ports. The boards networking capabilities include a Realtek RTL8125AG 2.5 G port with an assisting Intel Gigabit port, as well as an Intel AX200 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface which also includes support for BT 5 devices. There are three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots which operate at x16, x8/x8, and x8/x8/x4, with a single PCIe 4.0 x1 slot.

On the power delivery front, GIGABYTE is using a formidable setup with a 12+2 design with power stages rated for 50 A, and with two 8-pin 12 V ATX CPU power inputs. The onboard audio is handled by a Realtek ALC1220-VB HD audio codec and is complemented by an ESS Sabre 9118 DAC chip to enhance the auditory quality. On the rear panel is a Q-Flash Plus button for updating the firmware, a clear CMOS button, three USB 3.1 G1 Type-A, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, two USB 3.1 G1 Type-A and four USB 2.0 ports. 

GIGABYTE's X570 Aorus Master targets gamers and enthusiasts looking to push their processors further than the rated specifications, and will likely have good memory support for fast memory to make the most of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series Infinity Fabric Interconnect. The pricing reflects this with a price tag of $349 which puts it in the upper echelon, and the second most expensive X570 model from GIGABYTE set to launch on 7/7.

    I signed up to comment on this. Might be the best looking Aorus design I've seen to date. That's a gorgeous board!

    Now if they can really fix that RGB Fusion, it would be perfect. =/

    No 10GbE, 12 phase VRM vs 14 as on other boards. Looks like fail, sorry.
  • jordanclock - Thursday, June 13, 2019 - link

    Have any use cases for 10GbE on a gaming motherboard?
  • Nephtys - Thursday, June 13, 2019 - link

    That doesn't make the Aorus Master a fail. Get the Aorus Xtreme if you want 14 phases & 10GbE but it'll be much more expensive...

    Is this using 12 phase native and 70a power stages? Saying it has only 12 phases is like saying a v10 400BHP is better than a v8 600hp because it has more cylinders.
  • quantumshadow44 - Thursday, June 13, 2019 - link

    more phases are better anyway. Do your homework pal.
  • rhysiam - Thursday, June 13, 2019 - link

    @Meaker10 is right. You can't judge the quality of a VRM purely on the phase count. That's especially true with the disingenuous way mobo makers are referring to their "phases". A well designed VRM with high quality components but fewer phases can (and often is) objectively better than a VRM that's been designed primarily so that the marketing department can put a high phase count in the feature list.

    Do your homework. This is one of two boards (the other being the extreme) with so called real phases (no doublers, no twin design), It should actually be better than a 14 phase with doublers.

    This guy is obviously trolling, as no ISP currently offers 10 Gb Internet service. 10 GbE is only for within network communication (at the moment). This guy probably doesn't even need 10 GbE and is only looking for PCMR attention.
  • extide - Sunday, June 16, 2019 - link

    Well, actually yes you can get 10gb internet access but even if that wasn't the case there certainly are uses for 10gb ethernet at home. I will most likely be building a ryzen 3000 system and would really like a board with 1gb + 10gb, although 1gb + 5gb would be ok.
