Have you wondered why there are so many chipsets? Z170, Z270, Z370, 990FX, X370, X299, X399, etc. Intel and AMD have a lot of motherboards and we try to make sense of all the changes that make each one different. Also, we find out that Intel doesn't have a clear reason for changing their chipset with every CPU release.
Gigabyte has done a great job with motherboard designs in recent years. The Aorus X299 Gaming 9 won the Best Choice Gold Award at Computex by setting several records, including overclocking ones. If performance isn't enough, the sheer beauty should make anyone say take my money!
Ryzen has been out for a bit now and it looks like Intel is scrambling to show it up. AMD jumped such a huge chasm of performance that it seems impossible that they can be competitive again. However, their latest CPU architecture performs well, and has great power efficiency.
