Submit

Gigabyte has officially launched its brand new X570S motherboard lineup which consists of five products. The Gigabyte X570S lineup is designed to offer improved power delivery and cooling solutions on the AMD Ryzen Desktop CPU platform while featuring improved compatibility with Ryzen 5000 series processors.

Gigabyte X570S Motherboards Launched For AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs, Include AORUS Master, AORUS PRO AX, Gaming X, AERO G & UD Series

The Gigabyte X570S motherboards are more of a refresh to the AMD X570 chipset which has been out in the market since 2019. Motherboard manufacturers were given the opportunity to enhance the design of their motherboards with the same chipset and one of the biggest changes that they made was to remove the active cooling solution over the PCH and replace it with standard passive cooling.

Motherboard manufacturers such as Gigabyte also decided it was the right time to make some tweaks to the power delivery and I/O of their motherboards. While the motherboards look very similar to their standard X570 brethren, they do offer a better design and support for AMD Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs. So let's take a look at the specifications of these brand new X570S boards in detail.
