Galax showcases their first X570 motherboard
At Chinajoy 2019, Galax, also known as Galaxy and KFA2, has showcased one of the company's first motherboard designs. While this isn't the first time the company has showcased motherboards, with the last example, that we know of, being for Intel's X87 socket in 2013, it is the first time that Galax has shown interest in the market in over half a decade.
What's most interesting about this is that Galax is showing interest in AMD, not Intel, revealing an AM4 motherboard which utilises AMD's X570 chipset. Little is known about the motherboard below, aside from its use of the MATX form factor and relatively few power phases. This isn't a super high-end product, but it could be the start of a larger Galax motherboard lineup.
Galax already produces graphics cards, DDR4 memory modules, SSDs and a small range of gaming accessories. Motherboards could be the company's next step forward, but given the fate of the company's last motherboard reveal, we won't bet on this motherboard hitting retail, at least in the US or EU. That said, with Galax being one of the first companies to create a PCIe 4.0 SSD, it makes sense for the company to back AMD over Intel in the motherboard space; why build a motherboard that can't support your fastest SSD?
