Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Wi-Fi Review: Well-Rounded Value

Editor's Choice

How We Test

We’ll be comparing the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Wi-Fi to the Biostar X570GT8 we recently reviewed since it is similarly priced. We’ve also included the Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wi-Fi and the Aorus X570 Elite, both of which are more bodget-focused options, priced around $200.

Comparison Products

The test systems are as close as we can get to running the same specifications. Though memory may be from different brands, the speed and primary timings are the same, as well as the GPU. We use as an updated W10 64-bit OS (1903) with all threat mitigations applied.
