Gigabyte today unveiled the AMD AB350N-Gaming WIFI Mini-ITX motherboard, based on AMD B350 chipset. Besides built-in Smart-Fan 5, Hybrid Fan Pin Header, RGB fusion and server-class components, GIGABYTE AB350N-Gaming WIFI motherboards have been designed to support AMD flagship-class Wraith Max CPU cooler, a high-performance cooling solution for the latest AMD CPUs, including Ryzen 7 processors.
Unlike most conventional CPU coolers, AMD’s newly released Wraith Max has larger dimensions and weight, making the traditional Mini-ITX designs more challenging. GIGABYTE has redesigned AB350N-Gaming WIFI motherboards to enlarge the zones between the CPU socket and DIMM Slots so that AB350N-Gaming WIFI can support larger CPU coolers and other components, and improve the air circulation at the same time. End-users can install memory modules with larger coolers without any interference.
The AB350N-Gaming WIFI uses server-class digital power design from International Rectifier which includes both 4th Generation Digital PWM Controllers, industry-leading 3rd Generation PowlRstage controllers, and the new generation of IR all digital power controllers offer incredible precision in delivering power to motherboard’s essential components, allowing enthusiasts to get the maximum performance from their new AMD Ryzen CPU.
In addition, GIGABYTE AB350N-Gaming WIFI features the Smart Fan 5 technology with hybrid fan headers that is capable to support both PWM and Voltage types fans not only for easier temperature management, but also more water cooling friendly.
The build-in Realtek® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency. In addition, the onboard 802.11ac WIFI module from Intel® supports up to 433 Mbps, 3x faster WIFI speed than 802.11n, and also supports BLUETOOTH 4.2, maintaining low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.
GIGABYTE decided to carry on with our popular RGB Fusion feature. Users will have access to different preset lighting configurations, including a choice of colors for LEDs and RGBW/UV. Also, users can set the LEDs to synchronize with Wraith Max coolers or have them change colors to indicate the CPU temperature.
The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors providing the extra strength required to support heavy graphic cards. This motherboard design will give our customers the option to build high performance PCs in very small gaming cases.
