The first leaked image of upcoming Gigabyte Z690 AORUS Elite AX DDR4 motherboard for Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake-S now leaked online.
The Z690 AORUS Elite AX DDR4 is equipped with a 16+1+2 VRM design, with a large passively cooled heatsink around the CPU. The board is kept in a silver and black color scheme without minimal RGB elements. This of course is not the top tier in the AORUS lineup, which is reserved for Master and Xtreme boards, but it’s a big step up from the last generation.
The board features as many as four M.2 slots for PCIe M.2 SSDs and WiFi6 connectivity. More importantly, we get to see the PCIe Gen5 with an interface with 16 lanes for discrete GPUs.
