Default GIGABYTE Unveils Three New 'X299X' Motherboards For Cascade Lake-X

Back at Computex 2019, GIGABYTE had three new models of motherboards on display. These new motherboards at the time were almost mistaken for next-generation Intel boards, with GIGABYTE quickly rubbishing the rumours of a new chipset at the time, as they were marked with X299G. GIGABYTE has finally lifted the lid on the new models, with its launch and support for Intel's Cascade Lake-X HEDT processors. These boards are built on the same X299 chipset, and are called the the GIGABYTE X299X Designare 10G, X299X Aorus Xtreme Waterforce, and the X299X Aorus Master.
Two X's are Better Than One

The new GIGABYTE X299X models use the same previous LGA2066 chipset we've seen in the past, but with uprated componentry and controller sets. The extra X in X299X is to signify that these models are designed for the new Intel 10th generation HEDT Cascade Lake-X processors - this is not a new iteration of the X299 chipset.

Some of the new features of the motherboards include using Intel's 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface, most likely the Intel AX200, but this has yet to be confirmed. The GIGABYTE X299X Designaire is using Intel 10 GbE networking which offers two 10GbE ports on the rear panel; this is likely to be using Intel's X550-AT2 controller.
