To unleash the full potential of the new Intel 10-core CPU, the motherboard requires the best CPU power design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, Z490 AORUS XTREME is a true beast among motherboards.
- 90A Smart Power Stage for Each vCore Phase
- High Current Capacity MOSFET
- Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Array
- Lower Temperatures
- Improved Transient
Z490 AORUS XTREME 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 1440A. This 100% digital controller, new Tantalum Polymer Capacitors array, and additional 8+8 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 enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum overclocking performance from the new 10-core 10th Gen. Intel® Core™ processors.
* Doubled from 8 phases with current balancing.
Due to the lower resistance of the polymer materials, tantalum polymer caps generally have better ESR and ripple current specifications, as well as better performance at high frequency.
Hungry for better performance? Z490 AORUS XTREME has a full PCIe 4.0 hardware design, supports high frequency memory, and comes with full SSD thermal guards to make sure you get the maximum full system performance.
With the optimized daisy-chain routing, the Z490 AORUS motherboard provides a proven speed of up to DDR4-4800+ MHz with high-density Memory module*. Optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, providing professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.
*Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.
Unthrottled performance is guaranteed by the enhanced thermal solution that incorporates Fins-Array II, Heatpipe II and Thermal Guards II. The comprehensive solution delivers excellent heat dissipation. The Z490 AORUS MASTER stays cool on VRMs and M.2 SSD even on full loading, making it most suitable for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.
