GIGABYTE Aorus X470 Gaming 7 Motherboard Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of GIGABYTE Aorus X470 Gaming 7 WiFi, one of the first socket AM4 motherboards based on the upcoming AMD X470 chipset, which will launch with out of the box support for 2nd generation Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" and Ryzen "Raven Ridge" APUs, in addition to current-gen Ryzen chips, when it launches early-Q2 (April). The presence of more than one 32 Gbps M.2 slot bodes well, as it confirms that the chipset features PCI-Express gen 3.0 general purpose lanes (current AMD 300-series chipset have gen 2.0). One can also spy three x16 slots, from which two will be wired to the CPU, with SLI support; and the board's overall design scheme matching that of the company's Intel 300-series chipset motherboards.

That's the first thing I noticed as well. Overall a good looking board for the new/revised chips coming out.

Are those heatsinks over the M.2 slots? Also looks like some kind of lighting under or to the side of them.

Yes! But I'll bet you an arm and a leg that is a pre-production board in the picture. The final retail board will feature the same branded lumps of aluminium that every manufacturer uses, instead of proper heatsinks.
