GIGABYTE has announced its RTX 3080-armed AORUS MODEL X and MODEL S desktop PCs, which have an ATX and SFF form factor respectively.
Both models have an Intel and AMD variant, with the former offering an i9-11900K while the latter offers a Ryzen 9-5900X Processor. GIGABYTE says that it has binned and factory-tuned both PCs’ processor cores, and that the GPUs are factory-overclocked.
The AMD MODEL X comes with an AMD X570 chipset, 4x8GB of DDR4-3600 (XMP) RAM, and has a 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSD and a 2TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD as storage options. It comes with 360mm AIO liquid cooling and promises a less than 36db noise level based on tests with Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
On the other hand, the Intel MODEL X uses a Z590 chipset and has 2x8GB of DDR4-4400 (XMP) RAM instead, while the noise level is less than 38db. It also comes with two Thunderbolt 4 connectors. Both MODEL X variants have five SATA ports, which both variants of the MODEL S lack.
On the MODEL S side, the AMD variant has an AMD B550 Chipset and 2x16GB of DDR4-3600 (XMP) RAM. Its storage options include a 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSD and a 2TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD. Like the AMD MODEL X, it promises a less than 36db noise level using the same test conditions.
Meanwhile, the Intel variant has a Intel Z590 chipset, 2x16GB of DDR4-4000 (XMP) RAM, and noise level of less than 37db.
GIGABYTE did not provide any prices, but you can get the full rundown on the AORUS MODEL X and S’s specs and the differences between their AMD and Intel variants on its website here.
