To unleash the full potential of the latest AMD Ryzen™ 5000 series processors, the motherboard requires the best CPU power, memory and IO design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, X570S AORUS Elite is a true beast among motherboards.
Twin Power Design
GIGABYTE X570S Motherboards are equipped with best in class power solution to release the full potential of the latest AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series CPUs. The VRM power design includes MOSFETs which Vcore and SOC accompanied by digital PWM, premium chokes and high quality capacitors to offer extraordinary stability and precision to the high performance CPU. In addition, Six-layered PCB and comprehensive thermal solution allows enthusiasts to enjoy the extreme overclocking performance without compromise.
Memory Layout - Daisy Chain Design
With the optimized daisy-chain routing, GIGABYTE X570S motherboards provide a proven speed of up to DDR4-5400+ MHz with high density memory modules*. Optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, and provides professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.
* Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list from Gigabyte's website for detail support information.
Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5400MHz and Beyond*
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5400MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS otherboard.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.
Single 32GB Support
With populated 4 DIMMs per channel on GIGABYTE X570 motherboards, the maximum memory capacity support is 128GB. For users who always run out of memory capacity, they are able to enjoy more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.
PCIe 4.0 Design
Triple PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 M.2 Connectors with Thermal Guard
AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their Systems' potential.
ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
X570S AORUS ELITE AX uses high performance Full Covered thermal design with high coverage MOSFET Heatsinks and thick thermal pad, providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts, overclockers and gamers.
Fully Covered Thermal Design
High coverage MOSFET and integrated molding Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.
5 W/mK Thermal Conductivity Pad
By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.
3X M.2 Thermal Guards
Built-in M.2 heatsinks prevent high-speed, large capacity PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs from throttling due to overheating.
Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink
2X Large Surface
Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.
Real One-piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors' multi-piece design.
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance.
AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard - GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
