Gigabyte teases new Aorus motherboard for AMD's third-gen Threadripper chips
Gigabyte South Africa has revealed a teaser image of a new Aorus motherboard on Twitter. The post also features the #Threadripper hashtag, so it seems likely that the board will launch alongside AMD's third-generation Threadripper processors in November.
The Threadripper 3000 series motherboards are rumoured to use the new TRX40 chipset and socket. The picture shows off four full-length PCIe sockets, three M.2 sockets with heatsinks, a debug display, and a chipset fan. The latter has become a pretty prominent feature on many AMD X570 motherboards, so it looks like we may also be seeing that on new Threadripper boards too. In addition, there's been talk that the TRX40 chipset and X570 use the same silicon.
According to VideoCardz, Threadripper 3000 may be announced as soon as 5 November, with a launch set for 19 November. A 64-core CPU is also rumoured for a January 2020 reveal.
