Questions and Answers

Do you have you a question about the Gigabyte Z490 AORUS PRO AX Intel Socket 1200 Z490 Chipset ATX Motherboard?

Q: Hello dear CCL, Is been a while since I build a pc so I kind getting to know the latest hardware specs around, one thing I struggle to verify about this board is if support the 4th generation of M.2 and ( if yes just for one of the two M.2 or for both??) and if does the same for the 1st PCIe (16x) At last in some video some guys said that maybe it will be able to support the 11th generation of Intel so will be huge plus know that too. THanks you so much in advance for your help Regards Tony
