Pictures of the PCB of Gigabyte's upcoming AX370-Gaming K3 AM4 motherboard has been leaked, showcasing support for PCIe 3.0, NVMe storage, M.2 SSDs and DDR4 memory. 

 

Sadly, all that we see pictured here is a PCB, though it allows us to see several features of the motherboard like eight SATA III 6Gb/s ports, gigabit ethernet, USB 3.1 Gen 2 and HDMI. This motherboard will be a mid-high-end AM4 motherboard which will use the AMD X370 chipset, which is expected to support overclocking on both AMD's Zen CPUs and Bristol Ridge APUs.   

This motherboard will feature a 7-phase VRM and an 8-pin EPS/CPU connection, allowing this motherboard to use AMD's high-end 95W 8-core Ryzen CPUs.

As you can see with this PCB the Gigabyte AX370-Gaming K3 will have two PCIe 3.0 16x slots, with one being wires with 16-lanes and one being wired with only four lanes. 

The second PCIe 3.0 16x slot on this motherboard is not expected to be used with a second GPU, with this x4 lane being better suited to modern PCIe SSD solutions of M.2/U.2 adapters. Nvidia requires a minimum of PCIe 8x for SLI to function correctly, though AMD does support Crossfire with PCIe x4.

Right now AMD's Ryzen CPUs and AM4 motherboards are expected to launch in Late January or February, with a paper launch early next month.

One thing I'm wondering looking at these pictures, do the holes for the CPU cooler bracket match the old AM3 dimensions or the new one that has been pictured? Looking at them side by side I would hazard a guess that it looks like the old sizeQuote
