Gigabyte Z490 AORUS ULTRA Motherboard

Meet the Gigabyte Z490 AORUS ULTRA Motherboard. This new rane of motherboards by Gigabyte are designed for equal parts beauty and beast.

True Power Design

Gigabyte use true power phases, a fully load-balanced VRM design with doublers, and a tantalum polymer capacitor array. For sudden changes between idle and high load states from the CPU, GIGABYTE utilizes a tantalum polymer capacitor array directly under the CPU socket as a buffer which is used to to improve transient response and stability under high CPU frequencies.

Thermal Reactive Armour

The innovative thermal design ensures the best CPU, chipset and SSD stability, and low temperatures under full load apps and gaming.

Fins-Array II

Gigabyte have also provided a thermal solution for large capacity M.2 SSD devices with double side flash- the M.2 Thermal Guard II uses double-sided heatsink design to prevent throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating heat.

Direct-Touch Heatpipe II

The new Direct-Touch Heatpipe II features an extra large 8mm pipe made from a new process to narrow the gap between the heatpipe and heatsink. This greatly helps transfer heat on MOSFETs.

Nano-Carbon Baseplate

The aluminium baseplate ensures 3X thermal conductivity. The base plate is coated in a thin layer of Nano Carbon to enhance thermal radiation capability.

Xtreme Memory Design

The "Xtreme Memory" technology used includes Shielded Memory Routing, SMT DIMM, and Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Array to minimise all noise and electrical interference and reach the highest memory clock.

Intel WiFi 6 802.11ax

Intel Wireless solution supports 802.11ax, 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. Additionally, there is an all new Aorus antenna supported 802.11ax 2.4GHz & 5GHz, 4dBi signal gain.
