GIGABYTE Intros X299 matična ploča Aorus Master



GIGABYTE today announced its almost-flagship socket LGA2066 motherboard, the X299 Aorus Master. The Master brand-extension, if you'll recall, is positioned just a notch below the flagship Aorus Xtreme, which makes this board a successor to the X299 Aorus Gaming 7. The X299 Aorus Gaming 9 and Designare-EX remain the company's flagship LGA2066 products, until they're succeeded by a new Aorus Xtreme product. There's still plenty to go around with the new X299 Aorus Master, beginning with its updated design scheme that's in sync with the company's latest Z390 motherboard lineup. It ships with out-of-the-box support for Core X 9000-series processors. The board is wider than ATX, although not quite E-ATX. It draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX, two 8-pin EPS, and an optional 6-pin PCIe power. A 12-phase VRM powers the CPU, cooled by a 2-stage heatsink. Expansion slots include four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (x16/NC/x16/NC or x16/NC/x8/x8 or x8/x8/x8/x8). The DIMM and PCIe slots feature metal reinforcement.

Povezivanje za pohranu na GIGABYTE X299 Aorus Master uključuje tri M.2 utora s PCI-Express 3.0 x4 ožičenjem, svaki s hladnjacima; i osam SATA 6 Gbps ulaza. Umrežavanje uključuje 2,5 GbE ožičeno sučelje koje pokreće kontroler Realtek Dragon 8125AG, 1 GbE pokreće Intel i219-V kontroler i 802,11 ac + Bluetooth 5 sučelje koje pokreće Intel 9260 WLAN kartica. USB povezivanje uključuje četiri USB 3.1 gen 2 priključka (dva na stražnjoj ploči uključujući tip C, dva po zaglavlju), a pokreće ih kombinacija ASMedia ASM1142 kontrolera i X299 PCH. Ugrađeno audio rješenje je nešto. ESS Saber 9218 DAC (SNR od 130 dBA!) Pokreće glavni prednji kanal + slušalice s Ti Burr Brown OPA2111KP OPAMP i WIMA kondenzatori; dok SNR Realtek ALC1220VB od 120 dBA povlači preostale kanale. Ručno izmjenjivi dual-BIOS, čitanje POST koda u 7 segmenata, USB flash-back i mnoštvo drugih značajki pogodnih za overklokera dovršavaju ploču. Očekujte da će to biti cijena oko 399 USD.
