Description

Gigabyte Z690 AORUS MASTER Intel Socket 1700 DDR5 ATX Motherboard

Intel’s Z690 chipset, the highest-end chipset offering for the Alder Lake lineup of processors, Intel has enabled the Z690 chipset to be a very powerful offering. Featuring support for running either DDR4 or DDR5 memory, the Z690 chipset will allow motherboards to run either new DDR5 Memory Or the current DDR4 Memory standard. As far as PCIe connectivity, this high-end chipset produces 12 PCIe Gen5 lanes, along with 16 PCIe Gen3 lanes. This is, of course, just an addition to the 16 PCIe Gen5 lanes that the Alder Lake processor provides, enabling a wide portfolio of PCIe lanes for connecting SSDs and graphics card.
The Z690 will introduce communication with the LGA1700 CPUs through Direct Media Interface 4.0 with 8 lanes (an upgrade from PCIe Gen3 to Gen4). The chipset will allow up to 6 SATA devices to be attached simultaneously and up to 40 USB devices with four different standards.
