The Gigabyte B560M AORUS PRO AX is a Micro ATX motherboard for 10th and 11th Gen Intel Core processors. It sacrifices some of the expansion capacity that a larger motherboard can offer, but still supports up to 128GB of DDR4 memory and multiple SATA and M.2 drives.

The primary PCI-Express x16 slot will fit a standard video card, and operates in PCIe 4.0 mode as long as a 11th Gen chip is installed (or PCIe 3.0 if a 10th Gen chip is used). Additional x1 and x4 slots are also available for other expansion cards.

For external connectivity, it also has both analog and digital audio outputs, 2.5Gb Ethernet, WiFi 6, Bluetooth, ten USB ports of varying speeds (including one Type C), and HDMI & DisplayPort outputs for CPUs with integrated graphics.
