Provide stable power for CPU integrated with PCIe & Memory controller

GIGABYTE DIRECT VRM DESIGN

The more advanced manufacturing process and the higher core count on the new generation of CPUs, requires motherboards to utilize a more sophisticated VRM design to make CPUs run at their full potential. GIGABYTE uses fully DIRECT VRM DESIGN, high quality MOSFETs and tantalum polymer capacitors to achieve higher efficiency, lower voltage ripple and lower temperature than traditional parallel VRM design.

image
image

Tantalum Polymer Capacitor

  • Lower impedance than regular capacitor to reduce voltage ripple
  • Stable capacitance under high temperature
  • Mounted right under the CPU area to stabilize CPU voltage during heavy loading

PCIe 5.0 Design

GIGABYTE Z690 Motherboards are ready to work with the upcoming PCIe 5.0 devices which are expected to experience double bandwidth than the current PCIe 4.0 devices. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, GIGABYTE R&D uses the low impedance PCB to provide the maximum performance.

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5333 MHz and Beyond*

AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5333 MHz 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.

* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.
Please see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.

image

Shielded Memory Routing

All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.

Single 32GB Support

The maximum memory capacity on the Z690 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 128GB, 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.

Thermal Design

1. Fully Covered Thermal Design

High coverage MOSFET and integrated molding Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.

2. M.2 Thermal Guard II

M.2 Thermal Guard II uses a double-sided heatsink design and prevents throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating heat before it becomes an issue.

3. Enlarged Thermal Guard

Enlarged double-sided M.2 heatsink prevents high-speed, large capacity PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs with double side flash from throttling due to overheating.

4. 5 W/mK Thermal Pad

By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.

5. 2X Copper PCB

2X Copper PCBs design effectively lower the component temperature by its high thermal conductivity and low impedance.

image

Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink

1. 2X Large Surface

Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.

2. 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.

3. 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 II

1. AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard II

The M.2 Thermal Guard II uses a double-sided heatsink design and prevents throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating heat before it becomes an issue.

2. Heatsink + Thermal Pad (Up)

3. Captive Screw

To Prevent missing M.2 heatsink screw

4. M.2 SSD

5. Heatsink + Thermal Pad (Bottom)

3% Cooler by implementing
2x copper PCB Design

By adopting 2x copper on PCB inner layer, it lowers the components' temperature at least 3% by turning the PCB into a super thin PCB size copper heatsink to dissipate the heat from the components effectively, due to its high thermal conductivity and lower impedance.
