The compact yet powerful pc delivers amazing performance with the latest 10th gen CPU, dual slots graphic card and blazing fast connectivity. It also equips with comprehensive thermal solution to keep it cool under heavy workload. Performance is not compromised by its size. ULTIMATE POWER DESIGN To fully support the latest 10th Gen ten- cores CPU, the Z490I AORUS ULTRA is equipped with the ultimate power solution with the desired features: direct, digital and multiple phases. After countless experiments and tests, GIGABYTE presents the unbeatable Z490I AORUS ULTRA for enthusiasts and gamers. 8 Phases Digital Power Design – 90A Smart Power Stage for each vCore Phase – High Current Capacity MOSFET – Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Array – Higher Efficiency Lower Temperatures – Improved Transient Response Z490I AORUS ULTRA motherboard uses an pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM Controller with Smart Power Stages and is capable of providing 90A of power from each phase for a total of 720A. This 100% digital controller, new Tantalum Polymer Capacitors array, and Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision and stability in delivering power to the motherboard’s most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing professional worker and gamer to get the incredible high performance from the latest 10th Gen. Intel Core processors. 1. Digital PWM 2. Driver MOSFET 3. Tantalum Capacitor 4. CPU Power Connector Power Architecture 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. 10 Layers PCB 10 Layers PCB For richer feature and powerful performance on mini-ITX board Z490I AORUS ULTRA, ten layers mid-loss PCB was adopted to make it work. Comparing with regular 8 layer PCB, two more layers for power solution and ground is added. In order to fully support 10th gen ten core CPU and get ready for the future, power trace need more space than previous generation. An extra layer is exclusively for the power delivery. Furthermore, a complete ground layer improves the signal integrity and helps PCB to dissipate heat. Along with ten layered, low impedance, 2X Copper PCB, Z490I AORUS ULTRA is unbeatable among motherboards. UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE GIGABYTE realize that our customer won’t stop chasing a better computer performance. We take care of it and implement more on products. Optimized memory trace enhance the performance. Faster read and write are needed to save time and improve efficiency. We offer plenty of M.2 Storage with thermal guards to ensure unthrottled read and write. In advance, adopting PCIe 4.0 ready components get the Z490 easier to upgrade. XMP 5000+ Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5000MHz and Beyond* AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5000MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this 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. Single 32GB Support The maximum memory capacity on the Z490 motherboard is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Therefore with populated 2 DIMM per channel on both channel, total memory capacity is 64GB, which was only available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.
