Dominate The Future!
In the dark, starless night, the falcon strikes fear into the heart of its prey. Even with minimal visibility, the falcon pinpoints its prey and patiently waits for the perfect moment to swoop in for the kill. The falcon with its laser sharp gaze dominates the darkness of night in the same manner that AORUS Core Lighting illuminates the vast AORUS ecosystem.
Take Advantage of the Power of Intel® 9th or 8th Gen Processors
Gigabyte Motherboards Are Your Tactical Advantage
This Gigabyte Z390 Motherboard along with a compatible Intel® 9th or 8th Gen Processor goes farther, faster than previous Consumer level Intel® CPUs and Chipsets ever have.
You get enhanced clock rates, improved memory caching and higher "per core" IPC scores to give you the best possible performances off these new Processors.
Design Concept: Ferocious Talons
The AORUS Core is inspired by the falcon's aggressive nature and hunting prowess. The falcon uses its razor sharp talons to swiftly strike down its prey with exceptional efficiency and precision, qualities that are exemplified in the fine details of AORUS design.
Optimized CPU Power Delivery Plane with AORUS 2x Copper PCB
GIGABYTE's exclusive 2x Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove 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.
Advanced Thermal Design
Z390 AORUS PRO WiFi reaches a perfect balance between style and performance by combining the media acclaimed Fin-Arrays heatsink, a heatpipe, and a thermal baseplate, to provide 30% lower MOSFET temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.
Pre-installed I/O Shield
With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier.
Dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Slots
AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system's potential, up to 32Gb/second per drive slot. With two M.2 Slots you can use dual M.2 Drives, even in Raid, or one M.2 Drive and an Intel® Optane™ Memory Card to speed up your new PC.
AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard
GIGABYTE's Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
Support for DDR4-4133 RAM and Beyond
