GIGABYTE X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI

The GIGABYTE X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI is the vendors only small form factor model in its X570 product stack. GIGABYTE introduces its X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI model into the mid-range segment with a nice variety of features including a mini-ITX frame with a 6+2 power delivery, an Intel Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface, and a Realtek ALC1220-VB audio codec.  

Firstly, there are two DDR4 memory slots which support up to 64 GB. Storage is provided by four SATA straight-angled ports, with two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, one of which includes a thermal guard which works in collaboration with the actively cooled X570 heatsink; the other is located on the rear of the PCB. The X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI has a single full-length PCIe 4.0 slot which has a coating of metal armor reinforcement. In the top-right corner are two memory slots which support DDR4-440 with a maximum capacity of up to 128 GB. For enthusiasts and performance junkies, the GIGABYTE X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI has an 8-phase power delivery using International Rectifier MOSFETs in a 6+2 configuration. The rear panel cover is also quite elegant with a metal finish further adding an element of premium to the board. 

It's the controller set which makes this board a more mid-range offering with a single Intel I211-AT Gigabit port, a Wi-Fi 6 capable Intel AX200 802.11ax interface, as well as a Realtek ALC1220-VB HD audio codec which drives the three 3.5 mm audio jacks. Also on the rear panel is dual HDMI outputs with a DisplayPort too, making this board suitable for multi-display capable for use with Ryzen based APUs. Aside from a single USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, and Type-C, the rest of the boards USB capabilities come from USB 3.1 G1 Type-A ports.

With a solid blend of aesthetics, a neatly packed in active cooled M.2 and X570 chipset heatsink, the GIGABYTE X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI has a decent feature set. The GIGABYTE X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI is also a bit of a mouthful, so I'm not too keen on such a longly named product SKU, but for users looking for a competitively priced mini-ITX model, this board has an MSRP of $219 at launch.

    Agreed. The major differences between pricing in motherboards nowadays is how well they support overclocking, how many / what type of Ethernet ports, and how much RGB garbage they throw on there. :-) Reply

    RGB changes the price by pennies at the most. Reply

    If it wasn't for the optical digital output I'd agree, but these seem to be rather rare and not common at all. A couple years back that wasn't the case, so I see an actual backwards trend here that comes with a lack of necessary ports. Atleast an optical digital output is necessary for me. Reply

    I mean sure, but a decent number of them were completely useless from a terrible onboard chipset. Pretty sure one of my two desktops had one that maxed out at 2.0 channel over optical digital output. Reply

    This would have been true, but for the dearth of ThunderBolt 3 ports, needed for audio interfaces for example.
    lso the price of most of the boards is outrageous compared to their real added value, imho.

    I agree with Silma, for example the great asrock x299 itx at launch had a price tag of 399, with 4 memory channel and sodimm slot and 3 nvme. Something's wrong, or the amd statement is false (most modern i/o), or the mb manufacturers did not get the best from x570 Reply

    I like it either. But back in days, top Intel's Asrock P67 Fatali1y Professional was priced at $120. For that price you were getting 16+2 phase power, cooling with a pipe 3 brand new Etron USB 3.0 controllers (USB 3.2 Gen 1), additional PCIe controller, best at the time Realtek ALC892 sound, 2 Realtek RTL8111 LAN controllers, additional Marvell SATA controller, Dr. Debug display, power and reset buttons, 3.5" front USB 3 panel, additional rear USB 3 bracket and SLI bridge in the box. That was first generation of motherboards of XMP profiles and new graphical AMI UEFI (return of graphical AMI BIOS after 15 years) etc etc. Just $120. Now to get similar set you have to pay at least $360. And for $120 you can only get some poor office board. And ASRock was cheapest of high end boards back then. Now it's most expensive. Reply

    "best at the time Realtek ALC892 sound"
    I mean best of Realtek. Obviously there were Creative X-Fi.
