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 condition.
10 Layers PCB
For richer feature and powerful performance on mini-ITX board Z590I AORUS ULTRA, ten layers mid-loss PCB was adopted to make it work. Comparing with regular 8 layer PCB, two more layers for power solution and ground is added. In order to fully support 11th Gen CPU and get ready for the future, power trace need more space than previous generation. An extra layer is exclusively for the power delivery. Furthermore, a complete ground layer improves the signal integrity and helps PCB to dissipate heat. Along with ten layered, low impedance, 2X Copper PCB, Z590I AORUS ULTRA is unbeatable among motherboards.
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.
