Twin Hybrid VRM Design
To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and overclocking performance of Intel's new generation CPU, GIGABYTE AORUS series motherboard equip the best VRM design ever built with the highest quality components.
PCIe 5.0 Design
PCIe 5.0 Design supports double the bandwidth of PCIe 4.0 and ensures that compatible with cutting-edge SSDs and GPUs released in the next few years to their full capability.
DDR5 Overclocking up to 7950 and Beyond*
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that has memory overclocking capability up to 7950 and beyond. For DDR5 XMP Memory, all users need to do to attain high memory performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS motherboard.
* Memory overlocking and XMP profile support may vary depending on hardware configuration.
Hybrid Cores Optimization
With new Intel Hybrid technology, GIGABYTE exclusively creates two new "CPU Upgrade" in BIOS profiles to meet different users’ scenarios by adjusting P-Core and E-Core activation and voltage policy.
Outstanding Thermal Design
GIGABYTE Motherboards' unparalleled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming performance.
GIGABYTE new generation Fins-Array III delivers the ultimate thermal performance by using Extended Irregular fins to fill all available space and vastly increases surface area. A piece of Fins-Array III heatsink surface area is larger than 2 full size ATX motherboard PCB, therefore it tremendously boost thermal efficiency and heat exchange performance.
M.2 Thermal Guard III
M.2 Thermal Guard III constructed with 9X optimized heat dissipation surface to prevent throttling and bottleneck that high-speed/ large capacity of PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSDs may cause, especially under heavy workload. The special design of heatsink grooves in the direction of CPU further enhances the in-chassis air flow and optimizes the heat convection efficiency.
Smart Fan 6
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.
GIGABYTE Motherboards enable the ultimate connection experience with blazing data-transfer speeds through the next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity.
802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E
The latest Wireless solution 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E with new dedicated 6GHz band, 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.
Marvell® AQtion 10GbE BASE-T Networking
The Marvell® AQtion AQC113C is a high-performance, backward compatible with 10GBASE-T/ 5GBASE-T/ 2.5GBASE-T/ 1000BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Ethernet Controller which is able to provide up to 10 GbE network connectivity, with 10 times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking and is perfectly designed for media centers, workstations and gamers.
Connecting the Future - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C
Featuring the USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 design which is doubled the performance than previous generation of USB 3.2 Gen 2. It works up to 20Gbps ultra-fast data transfer while connecting to USB 3.2 compliant peripherals. Through the USB Type-C connector, users can enjoy the flexibility of reversible connection to access and store massive amounts of data rapidly.
Paired with Realtek's latest ALC1220 Codec, playback for surround sound audio and DSD enabled music are easier than ever. To ensure a studio-quality experience, WIMA and Fine Gold capacitors are used to provide power to the overall system.
GIGABYTE motherboards bundle several useful and intuitive software to help users to control every aspect of motherboard and provide customizable lighting effect with outstanding aesthetics to fit your unique personality.
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.
All new EASY MODE shows important hardware information in one page including CPU clock, Memory, Storage, Fan.
Gigabyte Control Center
GIGABYTE CONTROL CENTER (GCC) is a unified software for all GIGABYTE supported products. It provides newly designed intuitive user interface to control all essential function.
A multi-function reset button that can be reconfigured to other function in BIOS for different user scenarios.
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ design provides product durability and high-quality manufacturing process. GIGABYTE motherboards use the best components and reinforce every slots to make each of them solid and durable.
