EXTREME POWER DESIGN
To unleash the full potential of the latest Intel 11th Gen CPU, the motherboard requires the best CPU power design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, Z590 AORUS PRO AX is a true beast among motherboards.
Z590 AORUS PRO AX uses an pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM Controller with Smart Power Stages and is capable of providing 90A of power from each phase for a total of 1080A. This 100% digital controller, new Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Array, and additional 8 4 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision and stability in delivering power to the motherboard’s most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum overclocking performance from the Eight core 11th Gen. Intel® Core™ processors.
Improved Transient Response
By using brand new VRM design and Tantalum Polymer Capacitor Array, Z590 AORUS motherboard transient response and stability is highly improved under overclocking and heavy loading conditions.
GIGABYTE understands that our customer won’t stop chasing better computer performance, and strive to deliver that in our products. For the Z590 series, protective and optimized memory trace enhance the performance; faster read and write speed save time and improve efficiency; and generous M.2 Storage with thermal guards ensure unthrottled read and write performance. Future upgrades to the Z590 are made possible by the use of PCIe 4.0-ready components.
Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5000MHz and Beyond*
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5000MHz 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.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module. Please see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.
Triple 7G/s Gen4 M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
The exclusive 3 PCIe 4.0 M.2 from CPU and 2nd Generation 7000 MB/s SSD provides unparalleled Read/ Write performance up to 20987 and 19378 MB/s.
ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
Unthrottled performance is guaranteed by the enhanced thermal solution that incorporates Fins-Array II, Direct-Touch Heatpipe II and Thermal Guards II. The comprehensive solution delivers excellent heat dissipation. The Z590 AORUS PRO AX stays cool on VRMs and M.2 SSD even on full loading, making it most suitable for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.
Fins-Array II uses brand new louvered stacked fins technology which is usually only used on industrial equipment that need compact heat exchangers. It has a special secondary fins structure that enhances heat transfer performance.
Because of pressure difference and flow separation, a circulation zone will be formed between louvered fins. This circulation will cause flow entrain and eject in the vortice form which improves thermal efficiency.
Direct-Touch Heatpipe II
With an extra large 8mm heatpipe and made from a new manufacturing process to narrow the gap between the heatpipe and heatsink, new Direct-Touch Heatpipe II greatly helps transfer heat on MOSFETs.
AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard II
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a new thermal solution for large capacity M.2 SSD devices with double side flash. 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.
Smart Fan 6
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.
