Z690 AORUS PRO 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. The more advanced manufacturing process and the higher core count on the new generation of CPUs, requires motherboards to utilize a more sophisticated VRM design to make CPUs run at their full potential. GIGABYTE uses fully DIRECT VRM DESIGN, high quality MOSFETs and tantalum polymer capacitors to achieve higher efficiency, lower voltage ripple and lower temperature than traditional parallel VRM design. Tantalum Polymer Capacitor - Lower impedance than regular capacitor to reduce voltage ripple​ - Stable capacitance under high temperature​ - Mounted right under the CPU area to stabilize CPU voltage during heavy loading GIGABYTE Z690 Motherboards are ready to work with the upcoming PCIe 5.0 devices which are expected to experience double bandwidth than the current PCIe 4.0 devices. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, GIGABYTE R&D uses the low impedance PCB to provide the maximum performance. 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. - Deactivate all E-Core - Zero compromise on gaming performance - Up to 20% lower CPU package power - Up to 5°C lower CPU temperature XTREME MEMORY GIGABYTE Z690 Motherboards feature the latest DDR5 architecture and XMP 3.0 capability. The new DDR5 memory technology brings 50% more bandwidth to the platform and increases the system performance drastically by implementing Unlocked Native DDR5 Voltage, Xtreme Memory Routing and reliable SMD slot. In addition to the hardware upgrades, the user friendly UI provides full functionality to overclock higher with exclusive DDR5 tuning capability. Support for DDR5 XMP Up to 6200MHz and Beyond AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 6200MHz 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. Unlock DDR5 Voltage - GIGABYTE exclusive circuit design unlocks Native DDR5 voltage control - Transforms Native DDR5 memory module to Overclocked DDR5 memory - Increases DDR5 memory overclocking performance and capability - Supports all PMIC vendors for maximum compatibility Shielded Memory Routing All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference. Ultra Durable™ SMD DDR5 Memory Armor GIGABYTE's exclusive stainless steel shielding design. THERMAL REACTIVE ARMOR GIGABYTE Z690 Series Motherboards' Un-throttled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming. 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. AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard II The M.2 Thermal Guard II uses a double-sided heatsink design and prevents throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating 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. - High Current Support Each fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water cooling Pump , and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection - Precision Control 9 temperature/fan speed control points for precise fan curve - Dual Curve Mode Slope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI Improve fan curve UI We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control. Slope/Stair dual graph mode Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval. Manual Input For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control. EZ Tuning Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve. Fan curve profile Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS. First adopter on 2.5 GbE LAN onboard 2X Faster than ever - Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least 2 times 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 New Introduce Intel® WIFI 6 802.11ax + BT 5 Module Wireless solution supports 802.11ax, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps.
