The Gigabyte X299 AORUS 7 is an ATX size, enthusiast-grade motherboard utilizing the X299 chipset from Intel. That chipset is built to support Intel's Core-X series i7 and i9 processors, along with eight DDR4 memory slots.

A wide range of connectivity is provided as well: eight standard USB 3.1 ports, a ninth USB 3.1 Type C port, dual Gb Ethernet, WiFi, audio, and even a legacy PS/2 port. Internally it has eight SATA ports, three M.2 connectors, and a wide mix of PCI-Express 3.0 slots.

William George (Product Development) Says:
Please note that the PCI-Express slot speeds depend on the processor installed. Lower-end chips have fewer PCI-E lanes, so if you plan on getting a lot of expansion cards you may want to check with our consultants to make sure you get a CPU that will support everything you need.
