Gigabyte Aorus Model S now ships with 12th Gen Intel Core processors

Gigabyte has announced a new model of its Aorus Model S SFF PC with a new Intel Core i7-12700K processor and RTX 3070 GPU, a powerful combination for a system that’s slightly larger than the Xbox Series X. 

Although larger than the Series X, it is still relatively small for a desktop system at 190 x 189 x 400mm (14 liters). Due to its form factor and size, Gigabyte had to develop a unique cooling system with a vertically oriented heat sink connected by several heat pipes to the CPU and GPU. This heatsink is then cooled by a 120mm fan that draws fresh air from the three intake ports and pushes air through the heatsink. Another fan (140mm) draws hot air from the heatsink and pushes it out of the case, allowing air to flow from the bottom up.

Inside the Aorus Model S is an Intel Core i7-12700K 12C/20T processor on a Z690 motherboard, an Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU, a 2TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSD, and 32GB of DDR5-4800 memory. System I/O includes multiple front and rear USB 3.2 Gen 1/2 ports, a 2.5GbE port, audio in/out jacks, USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, a DP 1.4 port, and a Q-Flash Plus port. Button for easy BIOS update. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E. All of this is powered by a 750W 80 Plus Gold rated PSU.

Pricing and availability are still unknown, but if other Model S PCs are priced right, they should cost around £2,000.
