The current state of naming conventions continues to confound, AMD's X370 chipset appeared at the same time Intel offers a Z370 in a testament to the troubled mental state of PR flacks. Ignoring that particular matter in order to focus on the technical specifications of Gigabyte's new Gaming K7, we direct you to [H]ard|OCP's review of the motherboard. It offers six PCIe slots, two of which are 16x PCIe 3.0, support for up to 64GB of DDR4-3600MHz, both an M.2 and U.2 port and even a pair of SEx ports looking for something compatible to plug into them. With four USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, one of which is Type-C as well as 10 USB 3.1 Gen. 1 ports you are not going to have issues with peripherals. Check out the full performance and overclocking results of this Silver Award winning board for all the details.
"GIGABYTE’s AX370 Gaming K7 is in many ways the motherboard the AX370 Gaming 5 should have been. GIGABYTE has a habit of creating multiple SKUs with differences that are so minor that one can’t help but wonder why two separate models exist when they are almost indistinguishable from one another."
