Gigabyte Z690 AORUS Pro Motherboard Preview

Gigabyte is sure to have a huge range of motherboards for this launch, if not one of the biggest ranges of any brand! While they’ll have many more affordable boards available, their AORUS branding is typically reserved for their enthusiast and flagship hardware, and will likely come with big price tags to match. The AORUS Z690 Pro isn’t their most extremely, likely sitting lower in the AORUS range, but still above the main Gigabyte motherboards. It’s packing some pretty serious hardware too, which will ensure this board is a big hit with those keen to get the most out of the latest Intel CPUs, as well as any future PCIe 4.0 hardware.

While not the most powerful configuration from AORUS, the 16+1+2 Digital Phase design is unlikely to leave you disappointed when it comes to overclocking. Plus, the board deployed one full PCIe 5.0 slot, as well as two PCIe 3.0 slots. There are six SATA3 and 4x M.2 slots too, which should allow for some decent storage-focused builds. Networking is strong too, thanks to both Intel 2.5 GbE LAN and Intel Wifi 6 802.11ax.
