Yesterday we saw the offer that AMD had prepared for us with its Ryzen 9 5900X, where the price has been the all-time low since that processor went on sale. Today it seems that GIGABYTE wants to make more sense of this offer by putting its X570 AORUS Elite. Want to upgrade to AMD Ryzen in the 5000 range? Well, attentive.
GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Elite, a competent motherboard at a good price
We are not talking about a top model, its price and characteristics reflect it, but it is an off-road model suitable for the less well-off pockets and that fully complies with any current GPU as well as any AMD Ryzen processor.
And it is that we are facing an extremely complete plate for the sale price that it has. Starting off by accommodating the entire lineup of Ryzen 3000 and 5000 processors, including the new 5000G with iGPUs, this board manages to incorporate nothing less than 12 + 2 power phases to power any named CPU, including the 16-core 5950X.
In the memory section we can install up to 128 GB in Dual Channel configuration thanks to its four DIMMs, more than enough for any task, including future ones. Its phase system has the peculiarity of being efficiently cooled with an advanced heatsink formed by a thick heat pipe, which will keep temperatures at bay without problems thanks to the 1.5mm thermal pad.
HDMI 2.0, Intel network card, dual M.2 and AMP-UP Audio
To be able to play with the new Ryzen 5000G APUs, GIGABYTE has included an HDMI 2.0 in this board, which together with the Ethernet GbE from Intel we will have a gaming PC for little money and with the best network performance to gain an advantage in our online games.
We cannot forget the storage section, where we get two M.2 connectors under PCIe 4.0 for SSDs with that format, a port PCIe 4.0 x16 for the latest NVIDIA and AMD GPUs and as sound we will have a ALC1200 chip with high-end Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors and interference protections.
Of course we are talking about a model with RGB Fusion 2.0, USB 3.2 Type C and active ventilation for the chipset. Regarding its price, Amazon currently offers it in only 178.61 euros and with limited units, very limited in fact, run!
