Gigabyte announces Aorus master motherboards based on the Intel B660 chipset

At this week’s CES 2022, Gigabyte Technology presented several motherboards based on the Intel B660 and H610 chipsets for the latest Intel Alder Lake (12th generation) processors. The most interesting of these are the B660 Aorus Master and the B660 Aorus Master DDR4, the former supporting the latest DDR5 RAM and the latter supporting DDR4. Otherwise, both models have identical specifications and design.

Both motherboards are manufactured in the ATX form factor and correspond to the style of the Aorus brand, under which products for gamers are produced. The presence of RGB backlighting is a reminder of this.
