Gigabyte shows Aorus Xtreme, Aorus Master, Aorus Pro AX and Aero D for Ryzen 7000 processors

Computex 2022 is in hybrid format and TechPowerUp got a chance to see live the motherboards that Gigabyte prepares for upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors.
The manufacturer brought four models to the event: X670E Aorus Xtreme, X670E Aorus Master, X670E Aero D and X670 Aorus Pro AX.Image source: TechPowerUp / GigabyteGigabyte plans to release many more different board models, including those based on the AMD B650 chipset.
But their appearance will have to wait until the Ryzen 7000 series release.
Some models based on B650 will be as expensive and equipped as lower-end models based on AMD X670 chipset.
By the way, it should be recalled that AMD X670 and X670E chipsets essentially consist of two B650 chips.
The difference between X670 and X670E chipsets, at least according to Gigabyte, is a PCIe 5.0 compliant x16 slot for graphics cards.
Gigabyte X670 Aorus Pro AXThe youngest of the boards shown by the company was the X670 Aorus Pro AX.
The manufacturer also plans to release an Elite-version of this model, the Pro version will cost less.
There is one PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, one PCIe 4.0 x4 slot and one PCIe 3.0 x2 slot.
The last two of these slots are the same as the first x16 slot, so there is also one PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot and one PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot.
It has two USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C (20Gbps) connectors.
One of them is displayed on the front panel, the second is displayed on the back.
There is also USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (10Gbps) port, but the manufacturer does not specify whether it supports DisplayPort alternative mode.
Gigabyte X670 Aorus Pro AXThe X670 Aorus Pro AX has a 16+2+2 power sub-system (each phase is rated at 90A), 2.5 Gbps network adapter managed by Intel, Wi-Fi 6E module, six SATA III ports, several USB Type-A ports and one DispalyPort and HDMI output each.
A pair of 3.5mm audio jacks and one S/PDIF jack are in addition.
There are also half a dozen connectors for additional fans, BIOS reset, start and reset buttons.
You can expect to pay just over $300 for this board.
Gigabyte X670E Aero DThe X670E Aero D, like previous Aero boards, is targeted at digital content creators or those who want fast memory subsystem capabilities.
It's equipped with a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot.
In addition, this is the only board from Gigabyte that offers USB4 support.
The ASMedia ASM4242 controller provides two USB4 ports on the back panel.
They also support DisplayPort alternative mode and Thunderbolt 3.0 standard.
Gigabyte X670E Aero DThere is also one M.2 PCIe 5.0 slot and three M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots.
Gigabyte let us take a picture of the back of the board, which shows the SMD components of the two X670E chipset chipsets on the left side, surrounded by four heatsink screws.
Gigabyte X670E Aero DIn this novelty, the company has also introduced a function of quick video card removal with a special mechanism with a button.
This was first seen on the ASUS Z690 for Alder Lake processors.
The X670E Aero D has the same lower two slots for PCIe x16 as the X670 Aorus Pro AX.
And in the rest of its features the model is similar to the board above.
Gigabyte X670E Aero DThe nice addition here is the POST codes indicator as well as a small design element in the form of a leather tag with the inscription Aero on the upper M.2 radiator.
The X670E Aero D will cost under $400.
Gigabyte X670E Aorus MasterThe X670E Aorus Master board doesn't get USB4 support, but has two M.2 PCIe 5.0 slots.
The model has a 16+2+2 VRM power subsystem.
Each phase is designed for a current of 105A.
The heat sink with heat pipe on the power elements draws attention.
But otherwise this model repeats characteristics of X670E Aero D.
But different USB Type-C options with transfer rate of 20 and 10Gb/s are available here.
Gigabyte X670E Aorus MasterThe 10Gbps USB Type-C port supports alternate DisplayPort mode.
The expected price of the X670E Aorus Master will be slightly lower than the X670E Aero D at around $360.
The X570S Aorus Master for the Ryzen 5000 was released for about the same price.
Gigabyte X670E Aorus XtremeThe X670E Aorus Xtreme, representing the senior segment.
It uses the same VRM power subsystem as the previous model.
The biggest difference is support for four M.2 PCIe 5.0 slots.
However, we had to sacrifice one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot for this, reducing the number of available lanes to eight.
Gigabyte X670E Aorus XtremeThe X670E Aorus Xtreme is the only board on the list to claim 10 Gigabit LAN support.
For its operation
