Direct 12 Phase Digital VRM Solution with DrMOS
Cleaner and more efficient power delivery to the CPU with better thermal performance ensures stability under high CPU frequencies and heavy loading.
- Digital PWM Controller to deliver appropriate voltage to the CPU
- 12 Direct DrMOS without PWM Doublers, each power phase connects directly to the CPU, with capability to handle 600 Amps current in total
- 8+4 solid Pin CPU power connectors secure power delivery and better heat dissipation
Memory Layout—Daisy Chain Design
With the optimized daisy-chain routing, Z490 VISION D motherboard provides a proven speed up to DDR4-4800 MHz with high-density 32GB memory module. The routing also eliminates the stub effect and pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher frequencies.
Z490 VISION D uses high-performance thermal design by combining massive heatsink, Direct Touch Heatpipe, and LAIRD 7.5W/mK thermal pad, providing ultimate MOSFET cooling for creators, enthusiasts and overclockers.
Triple M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSDs. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottle-necks from high-speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
Dual Thunderbolt 3—Fast, Flexible, and Simple Connectivity for Your Motherboard
Powered by Intel's own Thunderbolt controller, the new Thunderbolt 3 protocol, which is available over two USB Type-C connectors on the back I/O of the Z490 VISION D motherboard, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s—twice the speed of previous generation of Thunderbolt. This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.1, which is also backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities.
Intel Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax + Bluetooth 5 Module
This Intel wireless solution supports 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6), which enables stable connection and speeds up to 2.4Gbps for better gaming and video streaming experience. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X the range of Bluetooth 4.2 and faster transmission speed.
Three M.2 Slots with One Supporting Dual-Mode M.2
The up and bottom M.2 slots operate under PCIe mode. The middle one supports both PCIe and SATA modes. This configuration is designed for flexibility and adaption to fit most user's requests.
Z490 VISION D offers two addressable RGB LED strip headers and two RGB LED strip headers. Connect them to your RGB devices and customize the lighting using the RGB Fusion 2.0 software.
The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.
