GIGABYTE Readies X570S AERO G Motherboard

GIGABYTE is giving finishing touches to its new motherboard targeted at creators who like to game, and premium desktop builders, the X570S AERO G. This marks the debut of the company's AERO brand, associated with notebooks, over to the desktop PC components segment. The board's aesthetics appear more in line with the company's VISION line of products. The Socket AM4 motherboard is based on the new AMD X570S chipset, a low-power version of the X570 that can make do with fanless cooling.

What sets the X570S AERO G apart is its five M.2 NVMe Gen 4 slots, leveraging the PCIe Gen 4 downstream connectivity of the X570S. You also get two PCI-Express 4.0 x16 slots (x8/x8 with both populated), and creator-relevant connectivity that includes 2.5 GbE wired LAN, Wi-Fi 6E, and GIGABYTE's highest onboard audio grade. Thunderbolt connectivity is unlikely to be found. The board will come with out-of-the-box support not just for Ryzen 5000 "Vermeer" processors, but also Ryzen 5000G "Cezanne" APUs, which it wires out through DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

Update Jul 5th: GIGABYTE formally launched the X570S AERO G. It lacks 10 GbE, unlike previously reported, offers 2.5 GbE, and comes with USB 3.2x2 (20 Gbps) ports.

I'm still confused as to why Gigabyte rebranded Vision into AERO. The last press release on TPU from June 17th said that they were integrating all of their white colour-scheme boards into AERO. It would have been the perfect opportunity to distinguish Vision as the Thunderbolt-equipped creator board (as the Vision D boards always are TB3/TB4 equipped), and spin off AERO as the lower end Aorus Pro-level board with just the colour scheme (Vision G never had TB).

Also, weird lineup given that the B550 Vision D has TB but lacks the PCIe lanes, and the X570 Aero G has the lanes and 10Gbe LAN but no TB.

The Vision boards have always looked decent (except Z490 Vision D yuck), but I'm still waiting for X570/B550 to get that Vision D ITX treatment - doesn't even have to be a D model with TB, just the aesthetic of the G. Wishful thinking I guess, given how late in AM4's lifecycle we are now.

Also:
We can't spot type-C ports on the rear panel, so Thunderbolt connectivity is unlikely to be found.
@btarunr that's not true, I can see 2 x USB-C in the rear I/O. There is no TB logo though as you'll see on other Vision D boards, so you're right in that there's no TB, which fully makes sense given it's a G board. Likely Gen2 or Gen2x2.

Unlike cheap plastic used even for M.2 cover there are aluminium heatsinks to aid in cooling.

There is a 2x2 port using Asmedia controller.

Well, they changed Designare to Vision so... :ohwell:

I need this with a white PCB and MATX, to squeeze into a small open-air case where the white aesthetic fits perfectly.

I am guessing all of the specs are coming from a press release. Someone should tell the marketing team to talk to the engineers. According to the spec sheet on gigabyte's website it's only 4 m.2 slots, not 5. Also 2.5g not 10g lan.

They probably did it to make their whole "creator" line-up more coherent, Aeoro started with the laptops iirc :

They'll probably rename it again in the future...

To be frank, Designare was terrible to memorize. Vision is way too plain and non-expressive. Aero atleast suggests something "light" ... altho I feel like this isn't the end of it.

I see this board on Newegg now. Could mean only 1 thing. The rest of Gigabytes x570s boards will pop up in the next week or 2.
