X570 Auros Elite - Memory

Can someone explain to me why some boards do seem to accept memory at given XMP settings and some boards, dont? What is the logical difference in between a Asus X470-F that happily takes the current kit rated for 3200Mhz using XMP with overclocked settings all the way up to 3466Mhz with no problems, and a X570 Auros Elite (Gigabyte) does'nt even reach XMP advertised speeds, only boots up at 3133Mhz, and perhaps with some baseclocking up to 3166mhz, but completely refuses to boot above 3200Mhz in general on a Ryzen 2700x?

I'm breaking my head here really what the technical reason is for this being a newer, more supportive and even tried up to 10 different bios files by now in order to get it work. It just refuses to boot at 3200Mhz or beyond. I already complained about it on gigabyte forums with zero to none response; other then a newer bios that did something but not quite alot > https://forum.gigabyte.us/thread/10427/x570-aorus-elite-2700x-cmk32gx4m2b3200c16

Is it a incorrect readout timing? The sticks are in the right slots, i.e A2, B2 and even tried to mirror it by going A1, B2 etc. I understand it's a daisy chain based sollution by Gigabyte. The asus X470-F had no issues up to 3466Mhz with a 2700x; the only reason why i swapped out that board was due to a failing Intel NIC that went erratic and suddenly gone. Did'nt took a week or 3 and it took the complete board with it. The RMA lasted at least 3 months before i got a reply.

Dunno but here's what my Aorus Elite pulled off today:

Apart from that, fill out your system specs in profile, it will help other people help you.

Which BIOS version are you using?
