As is often the case with pre-configured full OEM equipment, the hardware configuration is variable so that the user can choose certain components to suit the equipment both to their needs and to their budget. The novelty of these AORUS Model X and S is that they incorporate the latest Intel X570 platform with the brand’s 11th generation processors, as well as the AMD B550 platform for the latest AMD Ryzen processors of those in red .
AORUS Model X, a high performance gaming device
Upgraded with strict verification and validation from Gigabyte, 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 of noise
The AORUS Model X has a fairly aggressive and colorful chassis with the most efficient heat dissipation design – its front air intake features a sleek aesthetic while encouraging unrestricted airflow for excellent internal airflow. . This box comes in two models, one with a tempered glass side and the other with a metal so that users can choose what is best for them.
AORUS Model S, big performance in a small package
The AORUS Model S features a unique all-in-one thermal design that dramatically improves cooling by maximizing usable space on the thermal fins inside the chassis. Concealed air intake maintains a sleek aesthetic in a space-saving box 14 liters and only emits 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 from the promotional image that we have placed just above these lines, it is able to accommodate a Whole RTX 3080 to have extreme gaming performance. Even at high resolutions.
As we have already said, the configurations are variable and AORUS offers these two computers with Intel and AMD processors. 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 of DDR4 at 4400 MHz in the case of the X model and with up to 32 GB DDR4 memory at 4000 MHz in the case of the S model.
In both cases, up to one RTX 3080 as a dedicated graphics, and the storage is distinguished in both cases by the incorporation of a 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD and another NVMe with a capacity of 2TB. They differ in power, because in the X model it is 850W and in the S model 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 costs 32 GB of DDR4 at 3600 MHz (in the X model it has RGB and in the S not), a RTX 3080 as dedicated graphics and the same storage as the Intel variant (a 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD and 2TB NVMe). The source also differs, being 850W for the X model and 750W for the S model.
Unfortunately, Gigabyte has not said when these PCs will be available or at what cost; at the moment they are only advertised 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, given their high-end technical characteristics, one should not be too savvy on the matter to guess that they will be quite expensive.
