The exclusive SMD memory slots with a metal shielding mask for anti-interference and the BIOS setting of DDR5 memory overclocking offer more stable signals to memory, which enable users to easily boost XMP and overclocking performance. GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS motherboards are completely next-gen ready and are engineered for PCIe® 5.0 graphics cards and SSDs. In addition to strengthening the durability and signal stability by enhanced SMD slots, PCIe® and M.2 EZ-Latch technology are implemented to make it easier for users to upgrade graphics cards and M.2 SSDs, simplifying ease of access and avoiding accidental damage to the surrounding components. Select GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS motherboards to offer users feature-rich I/O as well as the innovative Thermal Guard III design, and much more. Equipped with the all-around features of performance, power management, thermals, and audio, GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS motherboards definitively push computing firepower to the next level.

“With the advent of the new generation Intel® Z790 platform and the 13th generation Core™ processor, GIGABYTE also launched the latest motherboards to provide users ultra-durable products with premium compatibility, breakthrough performance, and low temperature through the optimized power supply, heat dissipation, and expansions. Featuring premium components and exclusive tuning function, GIGABYTE Z790 motherboards boost the overall and overclocking performance of CPU and memories,” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. “Featuring enhanced SMD PCIe® 5.0 x16 and M.2 slots with EZ-Latch design, lightning-fast networking of 2.5G or above, and Wi-Fi 6E dedicated spectrum, GIGABYTE Z790 motherboards impress users by their remarkable performance and stability to become the perfect choice for Intel® Z790 platform.”

The 13th gen Intel® Core™ processors carry on the design of Intel® 7 stepping and the “hybrid” architecture of P-Core and E-Core, which not only increase the amount of E-Core but also enable the processors to dynamically switch between high-performance operation and low loading energy saving mode. This allows users to flexibly take full advantage of the processors depending on the demands of system operation. With up to 20+1+2 phases which each Vcore and Vcc GT holding up to 105 amps by its Smart Power Stage design, the flagship of GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS gaming motherboards unleashes the full potential of the new processors and enhances the extreme overclocking performance on all-core multi-cores, delivering more than 2200 Amps to provide the best power balance. Meanwhile, it provides more stable power and dissipates heat more efficiently from heavy loading operations or overclocking to prevent CPU throttling by overheating. Furthermore, the addition of Tantalum Polymer capacitors improves the transient response of the VRM between high and low loads, increasing the purity and stability of power for processors, and providing an abundant and solid power foundation so users won’t have to worry about overlocking.

Intel® Z790 platform can support both DDR5 and DDR4 memory, GIGABYTE prepares various Z790 motherboards for users according to the market demand and positioning differences. The DDR5 models benefit from the new memory architecture which enables high power efficiency, low latency, and low power consumption, while DDR4 models perform impressively. Besides the well-reputed Shielded Memory Routing of SMD memory DIMMs and dual metal armor, GIGABYTE Z790 motherboards also adopt the new generation low-impedance PCB and layouts for users to enjoy premium memory overclocking performance with more durability and more stability. Real-world tests also affirm an overclocking boost performance up to DDR5-7600.
