GIGABYTE has taken a page out of Tesla’s marketing handbook with its latest gaming desktops, the AORUS Model X and Model S. Both of these systems feature an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, as well as a design that allows for optimized heat dissipation and acoustic control (according to GIGABYTE, they won’t exceed 40 dB even at full operation). They also include a three-year warranty.

AROUS MODEL X and AROUS MODEL S are built with AMD R9 5900X processor and NVIDIA RTX 3080 VGA card which are almost unviable in the market. Choosing from various RAM configuration verified by GIGABYTE’s RD team, these two builds go for total 32GB memory, which MODEL X with DDR4 3600 MHz 8GB*4 and MODEL S with DDR4 3600 MHz 16GB*2. The storage of 1TB PCIe Gen4 M.2 SSD and 2TB NVME M.2 SSD provide sufficient storage capacity and performance.
