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.

Intel’s Z390 is a bit of an oddity on the PC world. While not really a full generational leap it does supplant Z370 as the flagship chipset for Intel’s 9th generation launch. Since ASUS never really got around to launching its flagship ‘Extreme’ product position on the Z370 platform, it’s making up for lost time now with Z390, the true flagship of the 300 series. Taking advantage of Intel integrating USB 3.1 gen 2 and Wi-Fi into the chipset, ASUS packs not only that but everything else into a single board. So much so, it has to be EATX to hold it all. What all magic has ASUS included? We’ll find out together.
