The AORUS line from Gigabyte spans a broad range of products: laptops, peripherals, and core components. Across the enthusiast spectrum, the AORUS name denotes Gigabyte’s gaming-focused products, with the AORUS motherboard range featuring a consistent naming scheme that includes the Pro, Elite, Ultra, Master, and Extreme motherboards. Within this lineup, the AORUS Pro AX is Gigabyte’s mainstream offering with a strong feature set and palatable price.

The Gigabyte Z590 AORUS Pro AX features an impressive direct 13-phase VRM utilizing 90 A power stages and Gigabyte’s signature finned cooling solution.
