As the launch of AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series CPUs draws closer, listings of its AiB partners’ motherboards have unsuprisingly start to sprout about the internet. This time round, the listings for Gigabyte’s and MSI’s X570 motherboards were discovered online.
In the case of Gigabyte, the brand’s motherboard listing was posted on the Eurasian Economic Commission’s (EEC) official site. The page lists down a total seven X570 motherboards under Gigabyte’s AORUS sub-brand. The motherboards are as listed below:
- X570 AORUS Xtreme
- X570 AORUS Master
- X570 AORUS Ultra
- X570 AORUS Elite
- X570 I AORUS Pro WiFi
- X570 AORUS Pro
- X570 GAMING X
Additionally, the page also shows a listing of X499 motherboards. Clearly designed for AMD’s 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper HEDT CPUs. As pointed out by Videocardz, one particular motherboard, named the X499 Designare EX-10G, suggests that the Threadripper motherboard could ship with on-board 10Gbe network support.
The Gigabyte X499 motherboards found on the page are as listed below as well:
- X499 AORUS Xtreme Waterforce
- X499 AORUS Master
- X499 Designare EX-10G
Compared to Gigabyte’s long list, MSI’s X570 motherboard listing only amounts to just a couple of motherboards for AMD’s third generation Ryzen CPUs. Both X570 motherboards are part of the brand’s CREATION series, but neither actually seem to have an official name.
Moreover, the listing on SiSoft shows that both motherboards were used to test a 4-cores, 8-threads AMD engineering sample that seems to be running at a clockspeed of 3.8GHz. Nothing is known about this particular CPU, but given the number of cores and threads, it is possible that the AMD could release the processor as a lower-tier Ryzen 3 CPU.
