Sitting high up in the Gigabyte AORUS motherboard range, you’ll find the mighty Gigabyte Z490 AORUS Master, one of their flagship motherboards for the enthusiast gaming and overclocking market. Of course, it’s not quite as extreme as they, erm, XTREME, but it’s certainly up there in terms of build quality, features, and style. While it is an enthusiast board, it’s firmly planted in the gaming market too, ensuring you get the absolutely best out of your hardware for better FPS, and that’s what we all want really.
It comes equipped with a robust Digital Power Design, built onto a 6-layer PCB, with double copper for improved conductivity, and it’s PCIe 4.0 ready, albeit not all of the CPUs will be, so be sure to check that one out. However, with shielded and armoured memory, PCIe lanes, M.2 mounts and more, it’s sure to be a robust configuration. You also get fantastic connectivity right out of the box, thanks to 2.5 GbE LAN, Intel WiFi 6 802.11ax, ESS SABRE DAC Audio and so much more!
“GIGABYTE understands that our customer won’t stop chasing better computer performance, and strive to deliver that in our products. For the Z490 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 Z490 are made possible by the use of PCIe 4.0-ready components.” – AORUS
