GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Master

Moving down the product stack from GIGABYTE's X570 SKU list is the GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Master which 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 without the hefty price tag attached to the higher grade X570 Aorus Extreme ($699). 

Included is support for up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory across its four slots, with support for DDR4-4400 with three PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots each with its own individual M.2 heatsink, and six SATA ports. 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 boards aesthetic is focused on the outer edges with a rear panel cover with RGB LEDs which stretches down to the audio PCB. For the X570 chipset, there's an actively cooled chipset heatsink which encompasses the Aorus Falcon into the design.

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. This equates to five 3.5 mm audio jacks with a single S/PDIF optical output. Also on the rear panel is a Q-Flash Plus button for updating the firmware, a clear CMOS button, three USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, two USB 3.1 G1 Type-A and four USB 2.0 ports. The board's rear panel networking capabilities consist a Realtek RTL8125AG 2.5 G port with an assisting Intel Gigabit port for dual networking, as well as an Intel AX200 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface which also includes support for BT 5 devices. 

GIGABYTE's X570 Aorus Master targets gamers and enthusiasts looking to push their processors further than the rated specifications, as well as offering 2.5 G and Wi-Fi 6 capable networking. The pricing reflects this with a price tag of $359 which puts it in the upper echelon of models, but the price seems fair all things considered.

    Is dual M.2 off the CPU possible? In RAID 0?

    Every board seems to say one M.2 from CPU and others from chipset :-(

    IIRC the x16 PCIe from the CPU can only be split down to x8/8 so you'd need to add an extra (expensive) chip to farther split it to x8/4/4.

    Otherwise you only have 1 x4 from the CPU itself. The x16/4/4 that AMD claims is somewhat deceptive since one of the x4's is used for the chipset and thus not available for general use.

    Doesn't this disagree with you? Reply

    Does any of these motherboards support IPMI or something equivalent? Reply

    ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact:

    "Also featured in addition to the dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots are eight SATA ports which is quite an impressive feat given the board's smaller form factor."

    No, it has 4 SATA ports.

    All the VRM core counts are wrong. Its as if some numbskull just counted caps and knows nothing about motherboards or cores. Reply

    This is the information we have received from the vendors themselves. Until we take a look at each board and do the analysis, it would be hard. Unless you know someone who has images/inspected each of the 35+ boards in person to do this? Reply

    Really thinking that a simple comparrison chart that listed all the MOBO's you tested on one axis and the features people might look for on the other axis with prices at the far end would have helped you reduce the wasted space on your conclusion page as well as present the findings in a more concise manner. Just food for thought. Reply
