Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Pro AX Preview

Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Pro AX Preview


If you’ve been following along with all of our Z490 motherboard previews here at OC3D you will be aware that there are plenty of different takes upon the formula, with none of them found wanting in any particular regard.

Indeed we find that it’s a pleasant change to discover that, instead of removing elements gradually until only a bare bones remain, the Z490 theory seems to be the regulation motherboard setup at middle levels, with the higher models only adding to the specifications list. Even here, the Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Pro AX has everything you could realistically require and the Xtreme is this but with more dressing. The icing and cherries on the cake to borrow the old idiom.

Find your favourite drink, move the cat off of your desk and let’s get down to discovering what the Aorus Pro AX has to offer.

Technical Specifications

Regular readers of our previews will be familiar to our method by now. We don’t want to force you to read the same things twice, so rather than explaining what you can see in the specifications table below, we prefer to talk you around the board when you can which element we’re referring to. Naturally this table is here for those of you who are never satisfied unless you know exactly which WfM version is on a motherboard, and the rest of us will be waiting for you on the next page.
