Gigabyte X570-I Aorus Pro Wi-Fi Review: Ryzen 3 ITX on the Cheap

Why you can trust Tom's Hardware Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

How We Test

We’ll be comparing the Gigabyte X570-I Aorus Pro WiFi to the ASRock Z570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 we recently reviewed, as they are both Mini-ITX X570 size boards. We’ve also included the Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wi-Fi as a data set as well. Just note that it’s a larger full-ATX model.

Comparison Products

The test systems are as close as we can to running the same specifications. Though memory may be 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.

    Umm.. Perhaps the headline should be Ryzen 3000 vs. Ryzen 3?

    I have been using this board, with a 3700x, pretty much since launch week. No complaints here.

    I’m going to be building and I’m stuck on if I need an ARGB splitter or just an RGB splitter 3pin or 4pin. I’m assuming I’m going to need a splitter for sure but trying to figure out how to make all the ARGB to work.

    For ARGB, you will need a splitter designed for ARGB.

    This board was perfect, until it didn't have SPDIF / Optical Audio Out. Bummer!
