Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro

Intel’s new Z390 was a bit of a surprise to most and is more of an update to the Z370 than an entirely new chipset. The Z390 chipset adds support up to 6 USB 3.1 gen 2 on the chip, which up until now would have to be included as a separate chip and added integrated WiFi 802.11ac support. In addition to these new features, it has also been designed to handle Intel’s 9th generation processors, which now tops out at 8 cores. With a new chipset comes motherboard refreshes and Gigabyte’s Aorus line is no different. We will be reviewing Gigabyte’s Aorus Pro which boasts the same stylish Aorus design with some new features such as a 12+1 phases digital VRM solution with DrMos, 2x copper PCB with an enlarged power plane, and M.2 thermal guard covers. The Aorus Pro lands itself in the middle of Aorus’s new Z390 lineup and has an MSRP of $180.
