Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO Motherboard: For 9th & 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors


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 anticipates 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.



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 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.

Fins-Array Heatsink with Direct Touch Heatpipe and High Thermal Conductivity Pad

Z390 AORUS PRO uses Fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to traditional heatsinks of the same size. Direct Touch Heatpipe helps transfer heat from MOS to heatsink and fins.

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.

Base plate + I/O Shield Armor

Durable design and easy installation
With an integrated base plate, GIGABYTE Motherboards give users a strong foundation to build their Gaming PCs. With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier. Integrated Power/Reset/Clear CMOS buttons on the I/O shield enable users easier debugging and operation.


Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Networking
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.

USB TurboCharger
GIGABYTE patent pending USB TurboCharger technology allows users to recharge their mobile devices with stunning speed, up to a 50% charge in less than 30 minutes*. By connecting the Front USB 3.0 Type-A chassis cable to our motherboard, users can utilize the USB TurboCharger to recharge both Android devices with QC 3.0 and Apple devices with Apple Fast-Charge function.
*Charge time varies with device's hardware design, battery size, front USB 3.0 cable quality of chassis, power saving setting (CEC 2019, ERP), and environmental factors, actual results will vary.

The Z390 AORUS Platform supports Intel's latest Optane technology. Optane fuels storage performance by acting as a cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional mechanical drives.

USB Type-C™ Front Panel Connector

Equipped with next generation connectivity AORUS Gaming Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C™ header for USB 3.1 Gen2 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.1 Gen2 drive or charging your new mobile device.

Native Intel USB 3.1 Gen 2 Controller
Intel's native USB 3.1 host controller provides USB 3.1 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 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 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.



RGB Fusion
With AORUS Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Addressable LEDs.* RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on Z390 Series AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Addressable LED support. With external Addressable LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
* Addressable LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Addressable LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.

AORUS Motherboards will support either 5Vdc or 12Vdc Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.


Solid Pin Power Connectors
Z390 AORUS motherboards feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin + 8pin 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

Industry Leading Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor
The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.
