GIGABYTE AX370-Gaming 5 (AMD X370) Motherboard Review

While we are on the subject of Ryzen processors, you are going to need a motherboard like the GIGABYTE AX370-Gaming 5 to get the most out of your new CPU.

As our second AMD X370 motherboard review, I will be putting the GIGABYTE/Aorus AX370-Gaming 5 under the microscope, and dissect its secrets. The AMD X370 chipset provides a decent amount of IO expansion over the basics provided by the CPU. Most notably, the X370 chipset offers two USB 3.1 ports, which is a first for a platform chipset. The CPU will provide extra USB and storage, and the chipset compliments it. The X370 chipset is also one of only two that provides multi-GPU capabilities such as SLI or CrossFireX for your Ryzen CPU.
