Aorus is here! If you are wondering what Aorus is, it is Gigabyte's new high-end gaming brand. It seems that Gigabyte wanted to really differentiate their different lines, so Aorus will effectively replace Gigabyte's G1 Gaming line. Not only for motherboards, but graphics cards and other products as well. The first Aorus motherboards come to us from the Z270 line, in which Aorus has six motherboards. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship Z270X-Gaming 9, which has everything you would want on a Z270 motherboard, plus a lot of extras. You have a PEX8747 to enable 4-way graphics, the Creative Sound Blaster certified ZxRi audio solution, integrated EKWB G-Frost hybrid water block, dual M.2 and U.2 connectors, Killer DoubleShot-X3 networking, RGB LEDs galore, and so much more! Let's jump in and see what this board is all about!
