Gigabyte’s AORUS Gaming series has already achieved a number of awards in terms of setting new performance benchmarks. Now, the company has updated its stock with the X2999 AORUS Gaming 7 Pro mobo which we have seen in the hands of enthusiasts who got the early versions for benchmarking.
Gaming 7 Pro
The AORUS series is totally amazing, but talking specifically about the Gaming 7 Pro, we have an updated VRM design along with Smart Fan 5 technology. If you are looking for the best processor to mount over it, the 18-Core i9 7980XE processor, the best that Intel has to offer in the 7th generation, will be perfect.
Vincent Liu, who is the Senior Associate Vice President of GIGABYTE’s Motherboard Business Unit said:
The X299 AORUS Gaming 7 Pro motherboard is designed to fully support Intel’s newest Core i9 7980XE processor. With our tried-and-true approach and seasoned experience, we have designed a motherboard that truly fulfills enthusiasts’ highest expectations.
The best of all features in this motherboard is the use of 12 power phases so that most of the modern day hardware is compatible with the provision of up to 60 amps.
Use of a digital Intersil PWM controller within the VRM takes the CPU and PWM communication to a whole new level.
Turbo B-Clock tuning IC is also in place, because after all, what’s the point of installing an 18-core beast if you aren’t able to overclock it?
Speaking more of the Smart Fan 5 technology’s customisation, Gigabyte said:
Users also have the ability to allocate and configure fan headers in tangent with the thermal sensors to regulate temperatures on critical areas.
