THERMAL REACTIVE ARMOR
Z590 AORUS XTREME uses an unprecedented and innovative thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming.
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.
A Flagship product needs to be future-proofed so your system stays up-to-date with the latest technology. Z590 AORUS XTREME provides all next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity to keep you up to speed.
Next Generation Intel Thunderbolt™ 4
Dual Thunderbolt™ 4 – The fastest 40Gb/s single-wire connection
Powered by Intel’s own Thunderbolt controller the new Thunderbolt™ 4 protocol, which is available over two USB Type-C® connectors on the back I/O of the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS XTREME, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s — twice more than USB3.2 Gen2x2! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.4a* and compliant with USB4 standard, which is backwards compatible with USB 3.2 Gen1 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities.
Daisy-chain Multiple Devices
Support for DisplayPort 1.4 makes Thunderbolt™ 4 a must have for any enthusiast. The Z590 AORUS XTREME is able to support two displays in 4K resolution at 60 FPS or one display in 8K resolution. In addition, Thunderbolt™ 4 over USB Type-C® has revolutionary industry-first features such as Power Delivery 2.0, USB4 specification compliance, and the ability to daisy-chain up to 10 devices thanks to the Z590 AORUS XTREME’s dual USB Type-C® ports.
