      GIGABYTE announces Ryzen-capable mini-ITX motherboard

      GIGABYTE's new AB350N-Gaming Wi-Fi: a new AM4-capable Ryzen board in mini-ITX form

       

      GIGABYTE has announced their new mini-ITX motherboard ready for AMD Ryzen processors, with their new AB350N-Gaming Wi-Fi motherboard that is ready for AMD's "performance-class" B350 chipset.

      This means we have most of the functionality of the flagship X370 chipset, but is cut down slightly. The table below explains it easily.

      Moving onto the board itself, the GIGABYTE AB350N-Gaming Wi-Fi looks great with its black and silver style, with 2 x DIMM slots and a single x16 PCIe slot. There's some overclocking headroom on the board with GIGABYTE deploying an advanced all-digital six-phase VRM with an International Rectifier controller, IR PowIRstage ICs and solid state capacitors. LN2 cooling even works on the AB350N-Gaming Wi-Fi, with GIGABYTE including 4-pin hybrid fan headers that are specific to LN2 cooling... so expect mITX boards to play with the big boys in LN2 records.

       

      The board rocks 32GB DDR4 support through 2 x 16GB DIMMs, 1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, 1 x M.2 slot, and 4 x SATA ports. There's DP 1.2, HDMI 1.4, 2 x USB 2.0 ports and 3 x USB 3.0 ports on the back. On top of that, we have 2 x USB 3.1 connectors, and a GbE port.
