There are a lot of Z690 motherboards about to hit the market, and you can bet that Gigabyte will have their name on quite a lot of them. However, while the Gigabyte range of boards will range from affordable to their high-end gaming motherboards, their AORUS branded hardware is truly next-level. They only put the AORUS branding on the best of the best hardware, and that’s certainly true of the Z590 AORUS MASTER, one of their most extreme options for the new Intel Alder Lake launch. Of course, flagship hardware certainly won’t come cheap, but if you’re wanting to build a powerful gaming system, workstation or just get the most out of the latest Intel CPUs for any reason, then the AORUS MASTER has a lot to offer.

Overclocking certainly won’t be an issue for the Z690 AORUS MASTER, thanks to its powerful 19+1+2 Digital Phases design, which should be more than enough to get some record-breaking performance from the new CPUs. Add to that a lot of flagship features, such as a PCIe® 5.0 x16, giving you some future-proofing, and also a pair of PCIe® 3.0 x4 for additional hardware. There’s also DDR5 support, for speed around 4800-5600MHz, but keep in mind, some Z690 boards only use DDR4, some only DDR5, so be sure not to mix them up. You get extremely fast networking here too, with the class-leading AQUANTIA 10 GbE LAN, paired with the fantastic Intel WiFi 6E 2.2 802.11ax hardware.
