AORUS X White ready for Raptor Lake Refresh

Gigabyte is releasing two motherboards featuring support for next-gen desktop CPUs and even faster memory.

The Z790 AORUS PRO X and the B760M AORUS ELITE X AX sport an almost entirely white design, accented by a few black elements like PCIe and memory slots. Gone are the days when Gigabyte offered motherboards in vibrant colors like orange or green; the company has transitioned to sleek and understated designs in black, dark gray, and silver that seamlessly complement the aesthetics of most PC gaming setups.

Nevertheless, as Intel refrains from introducing new sockets and AMD extends its CPU roadmaps over multiple years, motherboard manufacturers find themselves needing to explore fresh concepts. These could involve creating purpose-specific designs like Mini-ITX, overclocking-oriented boards, or those tailored exclusively for gaming enthusiasts.

Gigabyte’s main competitors, including ASUS, MSI, and ASRock, have already adapted their product lineups by incorporating innovative color schemes, allowing gamers to perfectly match their systems. In this aspect, Gigabyte has been somewhat slower to adapt, with only a handful of boards fitting this description, such as the AERO series designed for content creators.

The latest Z790 and B760M motherboard designs primarily focus on two aspects: offering new color options and supporting the latest CPU series. Gigabyte proudly announces that these motherboards support DDR5 memory with speeds of up to 8266 MT/s when XMP overclocking is applied. Notable features include hassle-free M.2 installation facilitated by the “EZ-Latch” system and support for “Sensor Panel Link” for external display connections.

The Z790 AORUS PRO X boasts an 18+1+2 phase VRM design, accommodating up to 4 DDR5 memory DIMMs, a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot for next-gen GPUs, 5GbE Ethernet, WiFi-7 support, and an onboard Realtek ALC1220 audio chipset. While the dedicated product page for the B760M motherboard is yet to be released, design-wise, both motherboards bear a striking resemblance to each other.
