Gigabyte Reveals B450 Motherboard Specifications

Category: Motherboards
Posted: July 17, 2018 05:29PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


While the older 300-series chipsets from AMD support the new 2nd Generation Ryzen processors, there are some features limited to the 400-series chipsets. The high-end X470 chipset released with the new processors and soon the more mainstream B450 chipset will be releasing as well, and ahead of this release, Gigabyte is sharing what we can find on its upcoming motherboards.

For USB, SATA, and PCIe connectivity, the B450 chipset does not differ from the B370 chipset, but it does support both the Precision Boost Overdrive feature and StoreMI. With StoreMI the user can have SSDs and HDDs combined into a single drive, with content intelligently placed on the different physical media, depending on your behavior. The more you access specific files, the more likely they are to be placed on the faster SSD than those you rarely use that remain on the HDD.

Also coming with the new set of motherboards is a new naming scheme, with Gigabyte dropping the Gaming 7, Gaming 5, etc. convention to instead use the Xtreme, Master, Ultra, Pro, Elite, etc. convention also found with their graphics cards. For the B450 boards, the Aorus Pro WiFi is at the top offering dual band 802.11 AC WiFi. The B450 Aorus Pro is identical but lacks the built-in WiFi support. Both of these motherboards come with two m.2 heatsinks for their two slots, Intel 211AT LAN, ALC1220-VB audio, and an ATX (305 mm x 244 mm) form factor. A step down is the Aorus Elite that has Gigabyte Gaming LAN, only one m.2 heatsink (still has two ports), and no USB 3.1 Gen2 ports. The Aorus Pro boards have a Type-A and Type-C USB 3.1 Gen2 port in addition to the six USB 3.1 Gen1 and eight USB 2.0 ports. All three of these boards have an 8+3 Hybrid Digital Power power phase configuration

Going to the smaller mATX form factor we have the B450 Aorus M and B450M DS3H. The Aorus M has the same 8+3 power phase design of the larger boards and supports the same number of expansion slots, but only has one m.2 slot and heatsink and uses Gigabyte Gaming LAN. It does have the USB 3.1 Gen2 ports of the Aorus Pro boards. The B450M DS3H only has a 4+3 power phase design, uses Realtek GbE LAN, has one m.2 slot but does not come with a heatsink, and lacks the USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. All of these boards though do support four DD4 DIMMS though, which is not the case of the last one.

The B450 I Aorus Pro WiFi is the lone mini-ITX board of the bunch. Being ITX, it has only the single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and two DDR4 slots. It also has a 4+2 IR Digital Power power phase design. Its display interfaces, for those who want to use the built-in GPUs of the Ryzen APUs, are a DisplayPort and two HDMI ports, while the other boards offered an HDMI port and DVI-D port. It does have the dual band Intel 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi of the Aorus Pro WiFi, Intel GbE LAN, and comes with a heatsink for its m.2 slot. For USB ports though, it does differ from the others and its two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports are both Type-A.

You can see the full specs of the boards in the attached images.

Gigabyte Shows Off Aorus X470 Motherboards

Category: Motherboards
Posted: April 16, 2018 01:26PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


Later this week AMD's 2nd generation Ryzen processors will launch, and releasing with them will be new motherboards based on the X470 chipset. While the new CPUs are compatible with the X370-based motherboards released last year, the X470 chipset offers multiple improvements and exclusive features. For those looking to build a new system or upgrade an existing one, Gigabyte has revealed its Aorus X470 Gaming motherboards: Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi; Aorus Gaming 5 WiFi; and Aorus Ultra Gaming.

While all three boards use the X470 chipset, there are some notable differences between them, setting the Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi above the other two. What the three boards have in common are their ATX form factor, two PCIe 3.0 slots (1 x16, 1 x8), three PCIe 2.0 slots (1 x4, 2 x1), Intel 211AT LAN controller, front USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, and ALC1220-VB audio. The boards also all have a healthy amount of RGB that can be controlled through RGB Fusion. Setting the Gaming 7 apart is its 10+2 power phase design, backplate, power/reset/clear CMOS button, two m.2 heatsinks, and ESS Sabre DAC to compliment the ALC1220-VB audio. The Gaming 5 has an 8+3 power phase design and only has one m.2 heatsink while the Ultra Gaming is similar but lacks the Intel Wi-Fi 802.11 ac Wave 2 with Bluetooth 5.0 support of the others. The Gaming 7 also does not have a video output while the other two include an HDMI port.

If any of these boards interest you, my guess is we will see at least the Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi reviewed alongside the Ryzen processors later this week, when the embargo lifts.

AMD 400 Series Chipsets Appear at PCI-SIG

Category: Motherboards
Posted: December 26, 2017 06:53AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

It was back in September rumors appeared stating AMD would release its Zen+ CPUs and accompanying 400 series chipsets early next year, and now we are seeing more information to support this. The AMD 400 Series chipset has been spotted at PCI-SIG, the group responsible for developing and maintaining the PCIe standard.

This listing does not give us much information, but we do see it was added on December 19. Also its codename is Promontory, which was the same name codename as the current 300 series chipsets. There has been a fair amount of speculation about what will come with this new chipset to differentiate it from what is available now, but little is known. The expectations for the Zen+ CPUs though is higher clocker speeds at least, thanks to a shift to a more advanced 12 nm process, from the current 14 nm process, with some hoping for a bump, however small, to IPC. As Zen+ is to be a refresh of the current CPUs, the enhancements should not be too significant, at least not compared to what Zen2 will likely offer, whenever that launches.

Z270 Platform Could Support Coffee Lake CPUs if Allowed

Category: Motherboards
Posted: October 20, 2017 10:41AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

This is a fairly interesting piece of news coming from a Bit-Tech interview with Asus, though Tweak Town has pulled out the more interesting points. This year both AMD and Intel have launched new CPUs and new platforms for them, but while AMD has gone to a completely new design for its processors, requiring a new socket, Intel's Z270 and Z370 platforms both use an LGA 1151 socket. One would somewhat expect then that the Z270 platform could support the newer Coffee Lake CPUs, but these are instead confined to the Z370 platform.

What Bit-Tech learned from its Asus interview is that this incompatibility is a decision of Intel's, and not a physical limitation. The Management Engine (ME) and BIOS would need to be updated, but if this were done, Z270 would be able to support Coffee Lake. The Asus representative also states the power delivery for the CPUs does make a "little bit of different, but not much." There were approximately 20 pins unused on Z270, which are now used for power control, but the representative suspects they are needed for future high-core count processors.

Following these answers, the Bit-Tech interview asks about who Z370 is targeting, and the representative says it is logical that those "on Z270 don't need to upgrade." Those with older systems looking for improvements to power efficiency, clock speeds, core counts, and storage could benefit from the upgrade. The target for the Z370 platform is "anyone that wants or needs to buy a new system."

Bugged Gigabyte BIOS Overvolting Ryzen CPUs

Category: Motherboards
Posted: September 4, 2017 05:21AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

If you are running a Gigabyte motherboard for an AMD Ryzen-based build, you may want to avoid the latest BIOS update. User reports have been coming in to different forums that the BIOS is significantly overvolting the CPU. Apparently the voltage is jumping to 1.55 V, instead of the default 1.2 V. One user, the one who posted at the TechPowerup forums says it appears to be an issue with the voltage offsetting being added to base voltage, and that sum being considered the base voltage. Manually setting the voltage of using LLC to compensate appears to address the issue though.

Not all users are reporting this issue though, and some are saying the BIOS is working fine for them. Still, it seems a reasonable to hold off on updating the BIOS until this is resolved, and flash back to an older version if you are concerned and have already updated.

Intel X299 Platform Appears to Have Serious VRM Issues

Category: Motherboards
Posted: July 3, 2017 03:20PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

With AMD's successful Ryzen processors, competition has returned to the CPU market, but Intel may have dropped the ball with its recent launch of the X299 platform for its X-Series processors. This series of processors is supposed to span from a lowly 4-core all the way up to an 18-core/36-thread behemoth, though only the CPUs up to the 10-core/20-thread i9-7900X are available now. The catch is that it seems Intel decided to move up the platform launch in response to AMD's success and impending Ryzen Threadripper launch and cut out too much time for motherboard manufacturers to get it right.

According to overclocker "der8auer," the platform is currently a "VRM disaster" with temperatures reaching far too high, leading to issues of inconsistency between different motherboards. When he was testing a CPU known to reach 5.0 GHz in a Gigabyte Aorus motherboard he found he could not even reach 4.6 GHz because of dangerously high VRM temperatures. An MSI board demonstrated similar issues, indicating this is not isolated. He also found that removing the stock heatsink from the VRMs, which der8auer likened to 'heat insulation' more than a cooler, and placing a small fan over the bare VRMs did a significantly better job.

Additionally der8auer feels the single 8-pin connector on some motherboards is not enough to provide the necessary power to the CPU. However the PSU-tester Jon Gerow, or Jonnyguru, has suggested the PSU shown in the video has a poor design leading to a higher cable temperature than would be seen with other power supplies.

What this appears to come down to is that Intel may have rushed the X299 platform out so early that it left motherboard manufacturers without enough time to properly develop their products. Of course the Gigabyte and MSI motherboards this has been found on are entry to mid-range options, so their more expensive brethren may not have these issues. These still seem to be unfortunate and likely avoidable problems that perhaps Intel cannot afford to make opposite AMD Ryzen's success.

Heatsink Problems Possible for AMD Ryzen Motherboards

Category: Motherboards
Posted: March 1, 2017 03:26PM
Author: Nick Harezga

The upcoming AMD Ryzen CPUs have had a fair amount of good news in recent days regarding price and performance compared to Intel offerings. Unfortunately, the latest news deals with a potential problem rather than a positive aspect of the chips. Sources have told Tom's Hardware that some heatsinks may face problems stemming from the pressure applied by the heatsink to the CPU. The cause for the problem appears to be screws that are too long which "reach their safety stop too soon, leaving the spring with too much headroom." The sources added that AMD provided the location of the screws but not the height. It appears that coolers that provide a backplate along with the heatsink won't have the issue, but Tom's still "found that a few large cooling solutions may be impacted, as well as some popular motherboards."

Upcoming AMD AM4 Socket Imaged

Author: Guest_Jim_*

There have been and are still a number of things AMD has been working on that people have been looking forward to. The Polaris architecture in the RX 400 series of GPUs is one that has already launched and in the first half of next year, the Zen CPU architecture will be released. Between these two releases is the launch of the AM4 socket, which will finally bring native PCIe 3.0, USB 3.0 and 3.1, and DDR4 support to AMD motherboards, and what appears to be a picture of it has been found.

If this leak is to be believed, the upcoming PGA socket will have 1331 pins, which puts it ahead of Intel's LGA 1151 socket. While it does sport more pins, the AM4 socket keeps the same size as the AM3+ socket out there today (but you may need a converter to use any current cooling options). This socket is meant to unify AMD motherboards to a point, as future CPUs and APUs will use it. In fact, the first use of the AM4 socket will be for the upcoming 7th generation Bristol Ridge APUs, but once Zen releases, users will be able to drop those in and enjoy.

ASUS Motherboards Partially Bricked Thanks to Windows 7 Update

Category: Motherboards
Posted: May 5, 2016 09:32AM
Author: Brentt Moore

Users of computers that utilize an ASUS motherboard may have recently noticed that their machines provided them with a "Secure Boot Violation" after a round of updates were installed on Windows 7. This error is directly caused from an update labeled KB3133977 that Microsoft changed from "Optional" to "Recommended," which ensures that the update is installed automatically by default. The update bricks Windows 7 machines running ASUS motherboards in UEFI mode, since Windows 7 does not inherently support the additional layer of security that Secure Boot provides. When the update is installed, the motherboard ends up sensing a violation of Secure Boot and will not boot from the device that contains Windows 7. 

Those affected by the issue are being advised by ASUS to deactivate Secure Boot while still being able to boot in UEFI mode.

Author: Brentt Moore

Earlier this month, it was reported that Intel Skylake processors suffered from a bug in which a system would freeze when performing workloads that were deemed to be complex. Although Intel released a fix that could be applied through the BIOS of a motherboard, the company was set to work with motherboard manufacturers to release the fix across a large number of different boards. Fortunately for owners of Intel 100 series motherboards from ASRock, the fix has been officially released and is available for immediate download. The fix from ASRock is only applicable to their motherboards, of course, so those who want to apply the fix for other motherboards that feature the Intel Skylake bug will have to wait until their manufacturers release official BIOS updates.

Author: Nick Harezga

Intel has announced a new motherboard form factor that has a smaller footprint than mini-ITX, granting it the honor of "smallest socketed board standard at 5.5 x 5.8 inches / 140 x 147 mm." The new board is larger than the Intel NUC but makes up for that with some features not found in the smaller offering. The 5x5 board accepts LGA based CPUs while the NUC is equipped with a BGA processor soldered to the board. The new boards also have support for two SODIMM memory sticks, 2.5" or M.2 storage, and wired or wireless networking. The board won't be able to completely replace larger boards as the 5x5 doesn't have PCI or PCI-E slots.
