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.

    I have an Aorus AX370 Gaming 5 mobo. With the latest BIOS update for Ryzen 3000 series (f40), I now have the option to select PCI-e 4.0. It has had 3.0 as an option as long as I can remember. It seems some mobo mfg are supporting it, even though AMD won't officially. Reply

    Will there being only three audio jacks prevent me from properly connecting a 5.1 speaker system? Reply

    Why are the boot times with pcie 4.0 m.2 so dam slow ? My 5 year old Asrock boots 3 times faster? Reply

    I still haven't seen this board hit the market yet. ASRock has release 2 version and Gigabyte has 1 on the mini-ITX release already. I also notice that the ROG Strix doesn't show a fan cooled over the chipset. All the makers are adding fans over the chipset. How is ASUS getting away without doing this? Could this be the reason why ASUS hasn't release theirs yet? Reply

    The Gigabyte AORUS Ultra with 3rg gen ryzen delivers pcie4 x16 + PCIE4 x8 + PCIE4 x4 for its three PCIE 16 slots - not 16/8+8/8+8+4 as described - it is 16+8+4 full time, regardless of the slots populated. This is so also for other boards in their stack, and offers point of differentiation allowing later population of, say, thunderbolt3 in the second slot without slow down the main graphics card pipeline.
