Gigabyte adds B360M Aorus Pro motherboard

Featuring a black and orange color scheme

The B360M Aorus Pro from Gigabyte is a mid-range motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to the B360M Gaming 3, which Gigabyte unveiled a few months ago, the new model belongs to a higher-end series and packs a few additional goodies. Like the name suggests, this model is based on a micro-ATX form factor.

The B360M Aorus Pro is based on a micro-ATX form factor with four DIMM slots. There is an orange backlight underneath the audio chip and one of the full-sized PCIe slots received steel reinforcements. In total there are two PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots and one PCIe 2.0 x1 slot. In the storage department there are four SATA ports but only two of them have been angled. Apart from that you get two M.2 slots allowing the installation of differently sized SSDs.

Looking at the external connectors placed directly at the I/O-panel, Gigabyte equipped the B360M Aorus Pro motherboard with a P/S2 connector, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, one Gigabit Ethernet port as well as an analogue audio panel with optical out. Furthermore, there is one HDMI, one DisplayPort and one DVI-D port. Unfortunately there is no practical CMOS reset button.

In terms of pricing this particular board is placed somewhere between the entry-level and mid-range market segment. In the case of the B360 we generally believe that there are some interesting boards based on this chipset. The Gigabyte B360M Aorus Pro is expected to be priced around $90 US.
