2X Copper PCB
GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths that are twice as thick as other designs between components to handle greater than normal power loads and remove waste heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.
PCIe v4.0 Hardware Design
With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, the Z490 VISION G is a true beast among motherboards.
- 1x Reinforced PCIe v4.0 x16 Card Slot
- Low Impedance M.2 PCIe v4.0 Slot
- PCIe v4.0 Turbo B-Clock
DDR4 RAM Speeds up to 5,000MHz
GIGABYTE R&D chose a high quality, low impedance server level PCB, modified the trace layout, optimized the routing by adopting daisy chain, and implement on different layers to avoid signal interference.
With the GIGABYTE XTREME Memory technology, noise is minimized. With this approach, Z490 Motherboard memory overclocking performance is guaranteed not to be compromised.
(Please reler Memory QVL list for specific motherboards and XMP modules supported.)
Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference. Protective routing utilizes POOL technique which ground on top/bottom layer of the PCB with border stitching vias connecting both, creates a complete ground cage that seals the critical high speed signal traces in an interference free inner layer.
Daisy Chained Memory Layout Design
With the optimized daisy-chain routing, this Z490 Vision Series motherboard provides a proven speed up to DDR4-4600+ MHz, with high density DESIGNARE Memory 32GB modules. The optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies providing professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.
Single 32GB RAM Support
Maximum memory capacity on this Z490 motherboard is 128GB (4x 32GB). After Intel updated the memory reference code, single RAM slots now support up to 32GB. Therefore, when populated with 2x DIMM per channel, the total memory capacity is 128GB, which used to be only available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is much more capacity now for those memory intensive applications like Rendering and Video Editing.

ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
Z490 VISION G uses high performance thermal designs combining a massive heatsink, Direct Touch Heatpipe, and a LAIRD®l 7.5W/mK Thermal Pad providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts and overclockers.
Micro-Black Heatsink Design
A Micro-Block heatsink provides better air flow channel from Omni-Directions with better heat dissipation without sacrificing total air contact surface. By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time period.
Direct Touch Heatpipe II
With an extra large 8mm heatpipe and made from a new manufacturing pracess to narrow the gap between the heatpipe and heatsink, new Direct-Touch Heatpipe II greatly helps transfer heat on MOSFETs.
M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. Their M.2 Thermal Guards prevents throttling and bottleneck issues from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
NEXT GENERATION CONNECTIVITY
2.5X Faster than Ever!
Adoption of 2.5Gb LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least 2x faster transfer speeds compared to general 1Gb networking. It’s perfectly suited for gamers and streamer with ultimate and smooth online experiences. It also backward compatible with Multi-Gig (10/100/1000/2500Mbps) RJ-45 ethernet.
Intel® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.
Dual Mode M.2 SLot Design
Supporting PCIe NVMe + SATA SSDs, Gigabyte Motherboards are built with dual M.2 Slots. With a PCIe + SATA dual-mode design on M.2 Slots. THis configuration is designed for flexibility and adaptation to fit most users and gamers requests.
Native Intel USB 3.2 Gen2 Controller
Intel's native USB 3.2 Gen2 host controller provides USB 3.2 Gen2 ports with speeds up to 10Gbps. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and USB 3.2 Gen1, the much improved USB 3.2 Gen2 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.
All New Realtek High End Audio Codec
The Realtek ALC1220 Audio Codec supports 120dB(A) SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp, automatically detecting the impedance of your head-worn audio device, preventing issues such as low volume and distortion. This new VB series Audio Controller stream your voice to the world vibrantly with both front / rear microphone SNR up to 110 / 114dB(A).
ALC1220-VB 120dB SNR Rear HD Audio with Smart Headphone AMP
Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics—preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.

Q-Flash Plus: Update your BIOS easily, even without a CPU, memory or graphics card
With GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus, you don’t need to install the CPU, memory and graphics card nor enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS. Just download and save a new BIOS file on the USB flash drive, then press the dedicated Q-Flash Plus button and you are good to go!
Solid Pin Power Connectors
Z490 VISION G motherboards feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin + 4pin power connectors to offer a stable power supply during CPU overloading.
- Larger contact area for electricity
- More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat
- Ultra durable and longer lifespan
Onboard LEDs controlled by the System BIOS indicate when malfunctions are occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component (CPU / DDR / VGA / HDD) is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.
Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.
CEC 2019 Ready: Save Power With A Simple Click
CEC Requirements: PC power consumption must be under a certain level when it’s in off mode, idle mode, stand-by mode. With high power efficiency hardware components and fine tuned BIOS, GIGABYTE motherboards can achieve lower power consumption under idle mode and fully comply with new CEC 2019 (California Energy Commission) power consumption requirement.
RGB Fusion 2.0: Multi-Zone Light Show Design
Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion 2.0 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.
GIGABYTE BIOS & APP CENTER
The GIGABYTE BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.
