Motherboard Gigabyte TRX40 AORUS PRO WIFI Review

The Gigabyte TRX40 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX sTRX4 motherboard supports third-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. This motherboard is equipped with Quad Channel ECC / Non-ECC Unbuffered DDR4, 8 DIMMM, 12-2 Phases Infineon Digital VRM Solution with 70A Power Stage, Advanced Thermal Design with Fins-Heat Arraysink, LAN Intel 3 Ultra-Fast NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 with thermal protections, Intel WiFi 6 802.11ax 2T2R and BT 5, 120dB SNR AMP-UP Audio with audio capacitors alc1220-VB and WIMA, RGB FUSION 2.0 with LED design with multi-zone addresses.

This AMD motherboard supports mesmerizing LEDs and RGB LED strips, 5 smart fans equipped with multiple temperature sensors, hybrid fan heads with FAN STOP, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C front and rear™ head, update Q-Flash Plus bios without installing CPU with memory and graphics card.Gigabyte TRX40 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX sTRX4 MotherboardThis TRX40 AORUS PRO WIFI finds a perfect balance between style and performance by combining the acclaimed Finsink-Array heatsink with the tube to provide lower MOSFET temperatures for fans, overclockers and professional players. A high-end product must be future-proof for the system to keep up with the latest technologies. TRX40 AORUS PRO WIFI provides the entire next-generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity to keep you up to date.

The position of that long voltage regulator required that the DIMM positioning would invade the space of the pcie slot, so that the top x16 slot aligns with the second slot on the board in the box. Gigabyte still installs two triple slot cards in the first and third slots and configures both cards with sixteen tracks. Since eight of the CPU’s 64 built-in PCIe lanes are dedicated as a chipset connection and eight M.2 units, which leaves sixteen tracks split between the second and bottom slots in eight slot lanes.Gigabyte TRX40 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX sTRX4 Motherboard

Because the second and bottom slots are wired like x8, a passive M.2 x16 PCIe adapter, like the one included on the ASRock tab, does not support all four M.2 slots. Gigabyte has an active tab that could change drives from two x4 to four x2, but it is not included in the box with this tab.Photo:GIGABYTE
