AMD X570S Motherboard Pops Up With a Ryzen 7 5700G CPU

Hardware detective Tum_Apisak has uncovered a CPU-Z validation that exposes Gigabyte’s X570S Aorus Pro AX motherboard, lending credence to the rumor that AMD is preparing a chipset refresh. Gigabyte has already registered various X570S motherboards with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). It’s never a sure-thing that every model will hit the retail shelves, but at least we’re sure now that we’ll see the X570S Aorus Pro AX. 

With the 500-series chipset, AMD went with an in-house design with licensed IP instead of just outcourcing the chipset design to ASMedia like the chipmaker has done in the past. The main reason why the X570 chipset relies on active cooling is due to the increased TDP from PCIe 4.0 support. While the X470 chipset only pulls around 6W, the consumer and enterprise variants of the X570 chipset draw up to 11W and 15W, respectively.
