Gigabyte Accidentally Lists Four TRX40 Motherboards for AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000

Yesterday we reported on rumored prices for Asus’ upcoming AMD TRX40 motherboards (opens in new tab), with the TRX40 chipset (opens in new tab)targeting AMD's upcoming 3rd-generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs (opens in new tab). Today we bring you a new rumor: a list of Gigabyte’s upcoming TRX40 boards, as spotted by Computerbase (opens in new tab). Sadly, we don’t have pricing for the boards this time around.

The info (PDF (opens in new tab)) comes from a compatibility listing for Gigabyte’s Aorus Gen4 AIC Adaptor and lists the following motherboards:

  • TRX40 Aorus Xtreme
  • TRX40 Aorus Master
  • TRX 40 Aorus Pro Wi-Fi
  • TRX40 Designare

Aorus is one of Gigabyte’s sub-brands targeting eSports and other PC gaming. But it also taps into other audiences, as shown by its Designare series.

There's also a document (PDF (opens in new tab)) with details on PCIe (opens in new tab) support. As seen below, they all will apparently work at PCIe 4.0 (opens in new tab) speed, which doesn't come as a surprise given that AMD's mainstream X570 motherboards (opens in new tab)(for today's generation of AMD CPUs (opens in new tab)) already do PCIe 4.0 too.

This leak follows an subtle reveal from just over a week ago, where Gigabyte South Africa’s Twitter revealed an image of what we suspect is one of its TRX40 boards (opens in new tab)(pictured below).

AMD’s upcoming TRX40 platform is said to debut in November and serve as AMD’s HEDT (high-end desktop) segment. It will launch alongside the Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series, which will pack up to 32 CPU cores (opens in new tab).

    Besides the Gigabyte 4x4 AIC supporting PCIe 4.0, are there any other vendors offering a comparable upgrade to their 4x4 AICs e.g. ASRock and ASUS both have Gen3 4x4 versions? Support for "Auto Detect" should make installing an OS a lot easier.
