As is often the case when it comes to complete preconfigured OEM equipment, the hardware configuration is variable so that the user can choose certain components to adapt the equipment to both their needs and their budget. The novelty in these AORUS Model X and S is that they incorporate the latest Intel X570 platform with processors of the 11th Generation of the brand, as well as the AMD B550 platform for the latest AMD Ryzen processors of those in red.
AORUS Model X, a top performance gaming device
Enhanced with strict Gigabyte verification and validation, these machines feature a system with improved cooling and excellent acoustic control; the system stays cool and quiet even when overclocked, and the manufacturer promises that these machines will emit at most 40 dBA noise. In addition, instead of the usual two-year warranty, the manufacturer gives them a three-year warranty with full service and remote support for greater peace of mind for users.
The AORUS Model X has a fairly aggressive and colorful chassis with a most effective heat dissipation design – its front air intake exhibits elegant aesthetics while encouraging unrestricted airflow for excellent airflow. internal air. This box is offered in two designs, one with a tempered glass side and the other with a metallic one so that users can choose what suits them best.
AORUS Model S, big performance in a small format
For its part, the AORUS Model S features a unique all-in-one thermal design that significantly improves cooling by maximizing usable space on the thermal fins within the chassis. Concealed air inlet maintains a sleek aesthetic in a low-footprint box 14 liters and emits only 36 dBA maximum noise, according to the manufacturer.
Obviously inside these Model S we find a system in mini ITX format but, as you can see in the promotional image that we have placed just above these lines, it is capable of accommodating an entire RTX 3080 to have extreme gaming performance. even at high resolutions.
As we have said before, the configurations are variable and AORUS offers these two computers with both Intel and AMD CPUs. Starting with the Intel alternatives, in both cases a motherboard with a Z590 chipset and a processor is equipped Intel Core i9-11900K Generation 11, accompanied by 16 GB DDR4 at 4400 MHz in the case of Model X and with up to 32GB DDR4 at 4000 MHz in the case of the Model S.
In both cases, up to a RTX 3080 as a dedicated graphic, and the storage stands out in both cases for incorporating a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD and another 2 TB capacity NVMe. They differ in the power supply, since in the Model X it is 850W and in the Model S it is 750W.
In the case of the AMD variant, the Model X equips an X570 motherboard while the Model S integrates an AMD B550, although in both cases the chosen processor is a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X. In both cases the RAM cost 32 GB DDR4 at 3600 MHz (in the Model X it has RGB and in the S it does not), a RTX 3080 as dedicated graphics and the same storage as the Intel variant (a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD and a 2 TB NVMe). The source also differs, being 850W for the Model X and 750W for the Model S.
Unfortunately, Gigabyte has not said when these PCs will be available or at what price; for now they have only been announced and we have to wait for them to issue a statement indicating the date of availability and the price at which we can buy them. However, seeing their top-of-the-range technical characteristics, you don’t have to be too knowledgeable to guess that they will be quite expensive.
