Description

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.?
Direct Digital VRM Design

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.?

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

PCIe 5.0 DESIGN
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.

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.

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.

XMP 6200
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.
*XMP profile support may vary depending on memory module. Please see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model
Unlock DDR5 Voltage
GIGABYTE exclusive circuit design unlocks Native DDR5 voltage control

Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.

XMP3.0
DDR5 Auto Booster
Automatically Boost the Native DDR5 frequency to 5000MHz while the system is under heavy loading by a single click.

DDR5 Memory Upgrade
GIGABYTE BIOS offers pre-defined and retrievable profiles for users to get higher performance easily. The profiles are based on a database that is created by checking each memory IC and PMIC vendors to optimize the modules to unleash their full potential. This is a time saving feature to manually configure overclocked DDR5 memory kits.

XMP 3.0 User Profile
Define and create your own SPD profile into Native and XMP 3.0 memory modules or apply the pre-tuned profiles to XMP 3.0 User Profile. Two user-defined profiles can be saved, loaded either locally or from/to an external storage device.
Two empty SPD profiles can be defined by users and carry to next computer
Transfer DDR5 XMP Booster profiles into XMP 3.0 User Profiles
Quick memory performance simulation based on user input clock and timing parameters
Profile save and load function to share your memory parameters online

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.

M.2 Thermal Guard III
M.2 Thermal Guard III design uses double-sided thermal pads to elevate the height of M.2 heatsink as increasing surface area to dissipate heats from M.2 SSDs. M.2 Thermal Guard III constructed with 5.6X optimized heat dissipation surface to prevent throttling and bottleneck that high-speed/ large capacity of PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs may cause, especially under heavy workload.

M.2 Thermal Guard III
GIGABYTE Thermal Guard III ensures PCIe 4.0 SSD running at 7GB/s With No Throttling.
10-Layer PCB

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
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.

Fan Stop
Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop, map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking.
