GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS Gaming Motherboards Are Ready To Dominate – Oct 10, 2018 – Taipei, Taiwan (Techreleased) – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has officially launched its Z390 AORUS Gaming motherboards, optimized for users to skyrocket the new 8-core Intel® Core™ i9-9900K processors to 5GHz+ across all cores via overclocking. With a 12 phase digital VRM design and robust heat dissipation, the latest iteration of AORUS Gaming motherboards offers exceptional power and temperature management for maximizing the performance and overclocking potential of these new processors.

All new 8-Core Intel® Core™ i9-9900K processors are built on 14nm technology and support LGA 1151 sockets. BIOS on GIGABYTE Z/H/B 300 series motherboards have already been updated for full compatibility with the new CPUs. To ensure the power demands for overclocking to 5GHz+ across all cores are accounted for, select GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS Motherboards utilize a 12 phase digital power design paired with a PowIRstage controller or DrMOS module with MOSFETS for balanced power management.

Z390 AORUS MASTER adopts an all-digital IR power design and uses solid pin power connectors along with other high quality materials for stable power supply. Excess heat from high-speed operation or overclocking is also kept in check by the power design to prevent overheating from degrading processor performance.

The backplate design on the Z390 AORUS Master fortifies the structural integrity of the PCB and also quickly disperses excess heat from the components on the backside of the PCB to mitigate overheating from system overloading. Stylish yet practical, the integrated I/O shield is easy to install and provides superior protection to rear panel features such as the USB 3.1 Gen2, network connectivity ports, audio jacks, and other expansion ports. Troubleshooting is also straightforward for users as the board’s power, restart, reset BIOS (Clear CMOS), and other buttons allows them to do so without breaking a sweat.

Audio quality on motherboards is another aspect that users value greatly so the GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS Master comes through with the ALC1220-VB audio engine and pairs it with WIMA FKP2 and Nichicon Fine Gold studio grade audio capacitors to bring professional recording studio audio quality to the PC. Audiophiles should be familiar with ESS SABRE DAC, commonly found in professional audio equipment, which is integrated in the board’s audio configuration. Through the GIGABYTE exclusive design, users can enjoy immersive, professional quality sound when gaming or watching multimedia, for a high-fidelity audio experience.

GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS Gaming motherboards support the lighting brilliance of RGB Fusion Technology. While RGB Fusion Technology brings back the features that users enjoyed with previous generation motherboards, users will be able to enjoy a newer, improved version of this lighting technology and its support for digital LEDs and lighting strips.

The quick charge function on previous motherboards has been significantly upgraded on the Z390 AORUS Series Gaming motherboards with the newest USB TurboCharger technology. Connecting the front panel USB Type-A connector chassis cable to the USB TurboCharger allows users to charge their Android devices through QC 3.0 and Apple devices through Apple Fast-Charge at a blazing fast charge rate of 50% in under 30 minutes.
