Just yesterday, Gigabyte had posted a teaser on its Facebook page showing a silhouette of the first ever Aorus-branded motherboard. Interestingly, folks at VideoCardz have managed to get the actual product photos. Based on the images from tech site, Gigabyte’s Aorus motherboard will be called the Z270X-Gaming 7.
Knowing that the Aorus Z270X-Gaming 7 motherboard is a Z270 motherboard, one can safely say that it’ll be made to cater for Intel’s LGA1151 (socket) processors. Another interesting feature about the Z270X-Gaming 7 motherboard is the fact that it has LED-lit (possibly RGB) components. So much so that it may just be overwhelming to some.
That said, there is one detail that seems rather odd between the teaser and leaked product photos. In the teaser photo, one can clearly see that there are four PCIe x16 slots; the Z270X-Gaming 7 showed on the leaked product images only has three PCIe x16 slots. This could probably mean that Gigabyte may release more than one Aorus branded motherboard – or that the leaked images are fake (highly unlikely).
Unfortunately, as for now, not much else is known about the Aorus Z270X-Gaming 7 motherboard, but we do expect Gigabyte to reveal more details about it in the weeks to come.
