With the fast-moving technology changes, GIGABYTE always follows the latest trends and provides customers with advanced features and latest technologies. GIGABYTE motherboards are equipped with upgraded power solution, latest storage standards and outstanding connectivity to enable optimised performance for gaming.

Twin Digital VRM Design
To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and overclocking performance of Intel’s new generation CPU, GIGABYTE AORUS series motherboard equip the best VRM design ever built with the highest quality components.

Design Ready for PCIe 5.0
PCIe 5.0 Design supports double the bandwidth of PCIe 4.0 and ensures that compatible with cutting-edge SSDs and GPUs released in the next few years to their full capability.

DDR5 Overclocking Up to 7600 and Beyond
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that has memory overclocking capability up to 7600 and beyond. For DDR5 XMP Memory, all users need to do to attain high memory 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.

Triple 7G/s Gen4 M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
The exclusive 3 PCIe 4.0 M.2 from CPU and 2nd Generation 7000 MB/s SSD provides unparalleled Read/ Write performance up to 21053 and 15499 MB/s.

Outstanding Thermal Design
GIGABYTE Motherboards unparalleled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimised thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming performance.

4X Large Surface
Increased surface area up to 4X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.

Real One-Piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors’ multi-piece design.

Multi-Cut Design
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance.

M.2 Thermal Guard III
M.2 Thermal Guard III constructed with 9X optimized heat dissipation surface to prevent throttling and bottleneck that high-speed/ large capacity of PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSDs may cause, especially under heavy workload. The special design of heatsink grooves in the direction of CPU further enhances the in-chassis air flow and optimizes the heat convection efficiency.

Smart Fan 6
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.

GIGABYTE Motherboards enable the ultimate connection experience with blazing data-transfer speeds through the next generation network, storage, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The latest Wireless solution 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E with new dedicated 6GHz band, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission.

First Adopter on 2.5GbE LAN Onboard
Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5GbE network connectivity, with at least 2 times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking, perfectly designed for gamers with ultimate online gaming experience.

Connecting the Future – USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C®
Featuring the USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 design which is doubled the performance than previous generation of USB 3.2 Gen 2. It works up to 20Gbps ultra-fast data transfer while connecting to USB 3.2 compliant peripherals. Through the USB Type-C® connector, users can enjoy the flexibility of reversible connection to access and store massive amounts of data rapidly.

Front USB3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
USB 3.2 Gen 2 provides USB 3.2 Gen 2 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 USB 3.2 Gen1, the much improved USB 3.2 Gen 2 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.

Audiophile Grade Capacitors (WIMA & Fine Gold)
To ensure a studio-quality experience, WIMA and Fine Gold capacitors are used to provide power to the overall system.

GIGABYTE motherboards bundle several useful and intuitive software to help users to control every aspect of motherboard and provide customisable lighting effect with outstanding aesthetics to fit your unique personality.

RGB Fusion Multi-Zone Light Show Design
Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion 2.0 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.

Ultra Durable
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ design provides product durability and high-quality manufacturing process. GIGABYTE motherboards use the best components and reinforce every slot to make each of them solid and durable.

With GIGABYTE EZ-Latch, you can DIY your PC in no time, quick and easy.
