Z690M AORUS ELITE AX DDR4 THE NEW KING OF GAMING Rule supreme with the Z690 AORUS gaming motherboards. The new king of gaming platform continues the legendary AORUS bloodline with the most robust power delivery and dominant thermal design, glorified with the complete memory overclocking technology to crown your PC with the best Alder Lake’s performance in all its gaming glory. UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE With technology moving so fast, GIGABYTE still keep up with the latest trends and provide our customers with advanced features and latest technology. GIGABYTE Z690 Series motherboards come with upgraded power solution, latest storage standards and outstanding connectivity to enable optimize performance for gaming.​ To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and overclocking performance of Intel's new generation CPU, GIGABYTE Z690 series equip the best VRM design ever built with the highest quality components. GIGABYTE get Z690 Motherboards ready to work with the upcoming PCIe 5.0 device which is expected to experience Twice bandwidth. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, Gigabyte R&D selects the low impedance PCB to make it work. Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5333MHz and Beyond AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5333MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS motherboard. Triple 7 GB/s Gen4 M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 The exclusive 3 PCIe 4.0 M.2 and 2nd Generation 7000 MB/s SSD provides unparalleled Read / Write performance up to 21053 and 15499 MB/s. Hybrid Cores Optimization With new Intel Hybrid technology, GIGABYTE exclusively creates two new "CPU Upgrade" in BIOS profiles to meet different users’ scenarios by adjusting P-Core and E-Core activation and voltage policy. ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION Un-throttled performance is guaranteed by the enhanced thermal solution that incorporates Fins-Array, Heatpipe and Thermal Guards. The comprehensive solution delivers excellent heat dissipation. The Z690 AORUS Motherboards stays cool on VRMs and M.2 SSD even on full loading, making it most suitable for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers. 2X Large Surface Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs. Real One-piece Build TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors’ multi-piece design. Multi-Cut Design TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance. GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue. 3% Cooler by implementing 2X copper PCB Design By adopting 2X copper on PCB inner layer, it lowers the components' temperature at least 3% by turning the PCB into a super thin PCB size copper heatsink to dissipate the heat from the components effectively, due to it’s high thermal conductivity and lower impedance. Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface. CONNECTIVITY GIGABYTE Z690 Series Motherboards let you experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speed with next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity. First adopter on 2.5GbE LAN onboard 2X Faster than ever - Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least 2X faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking, perfectly designed for gamers with ultimate online gaming experience. - Support Multi-Gig(10/100/1000/2500Mbps) RJ-45 Ethernet WIFI 6 802.11ax + BT 5 Module Wireless solution 802.11ax WIFI 6 with new dedicated 6GHz band, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission. Benefit of WIFI 6 - 5.5X throughput than 802.11ac 1x1 - 4X better network capacity, no traffic jams especially in those dense area with lots of devices - Network efficiency increase for better user experience Connecting the Future - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C Featuring the USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 design which is doubled the performance than previous generation of USB 3.2 Gen 2. It works up to 20Gbps ultra-fast data transfer while connecting to USB 3.2 compliant peripherals. Through the USB Type-C connector, users can enjoy the flexibility of reversible connection to access and store massive amounts of data rapidly. High-End Audio Capacitors AORUS motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers. Audio Noise Guard AORUS motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. PERSONALIZATION GIGABYTE motherboards bundle several useful and intuitive software to help users to control every aspect of motherboard and provide customizable lighting effect with outstanding aesthetics to fit your unique personality. RGB FUSION 2.0 With Z690 Motherboard, RGB Fusion 2.0 is even better with Addressable LEDs.* RGB Fusion 2.0 offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 on B560 Series Motherboards are now upgraded with Addressable LED support. With external Addressable LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations. With Z690 Motherboard will support either 5v or 12v Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion 2.0 with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come. * Addressable LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Addressable LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.
