PCIe 5.0 Design
GIGABYTE get Z690 Motherboards ready to work with the upcoming PCIe 5.0 device which is expected to experience Twice bandwidth. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, Gigabyte R&D selects the low impedance PCB to make it work.

Support for DDR5 XMP Up to 6400MHz and Beyond
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 6400MHz 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.

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.

Fins-Array III
GIGABYTE new generation Fins-Array III delivers the ultimate thermal performance by using Extended Irregular fins to fill all available space and vastly increases surface area. A piece of Fins-Array III heatsink surface area is larger than 2 full size ATX motherboard PCB, therefore it tremendously boost thermal efficiency and heat exchange performance.

Intel 802.11ax WIFI 6E
Intel latest Wireless solution 802.11ax WIFI 6E with new dedicated 6GHz band, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps*. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission.

AQUANTIA® 10GbE BASE-T Networking
The AQUANTIA® AQC113C is a high-performance, backward compatible with 10GBASE-T/ 5GBASE-T/ 2.5GBASE-T/ 1000BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Ethernet Controller which is able to provide up to 10 GbE network connectivity, with 10 times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking and is perfectly designed for media centers, workstations and gamers.
