ULTIMATE POWER DESIGN
To fully support the latest 10th Gen ten-core CPU, the Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 is equipped with the ultimate power solution with the desired features: direct, digital and multiple phases. After countless experiments and tests, GIGABYTE presents the unbeatable Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 for enthusiasts and gamers.

leaner and more efficient power delivery to the CPU with better thermal performance ensure stability under high CPU frequencies and heavy loading.
– Digital PWM Controller delivers appropriate voltage to the CPU.
– 12+1 Direct DrMos without PWM Doublers. Each power phase connects directly to the CPU, with the capability to handle 660 Amps current in total.
– Tantalum Capacitor Array improves transient response and minimizes oscillation.
– 8 Solid Pin CPU Power Connectors with metal shielding secure power delivery and better heat dissipation

GIGABYTE’s exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE
GIGABYTE understands that our customer won’t stop chasing better computer performance, and strive to deliver that in our products. For the Z490 series, protective and optimized memory trace enhance the performance; faster read and write speed save time and improve efficiency; and generous M.2 Storage with thermal guards ensure unthrottled performance. Future upgrades to the Z490 are made possible by the use of PCIe 4.0-ready components.

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5000MHz and Beyond
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5000MHz 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.

Triple NVMe M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 Support
Extreme Performance with Gen3 x4 NVMe PCIe SSDs
Z490 AORUS motherboards offer the industry’s best compatibility in terms of NVMe storage for users who demand high capacity and seek the best performance. AORUS’ unique design can be configured in RAID for record speeds of up to 3551 MB/s (Sequential Read), making AORUS the obvious choice for the ultimate PC.

AORUS Storage Manager
AORUS Storage Manager is a dedicated software to detect and monitor multiple SSD status such as how many SSD is detected, enable Software RAID0 with a single click and select different fan mode base on different hardware configurations.

ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
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 ULTRA G2 stays cool on VRMs and M.2 SSD even on full loading, making it most suitable for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.

Fins-Array II
Fins-Array II uses brand new louvered stacked fins technology which is usually only used on industrial equipment that need compact heat exchangers. It has a special secondary fins structure that enhances heat transfer performance.
Louver Directed Flow
Heat flow that goes through fins will enter from the leading edge of the louver and is then directed by other louvers or fins. This louver directed flow can greatly improve heat transfer performance.

Direct-Touch Heatpipe II
With an extra large 8mm heat pipe and made from a new manufacturing process to narrow the gap between the heat pipe and heatsink, new Direct-Touch Heatpipe II greatly helps transfer heat on MOSFETs.

AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard II
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a new thermal solution for large capacity M.2 SSD devices with double side flash. 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.

Smart Fan 5
With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.

NEXT GENERATION CONNECTIVITY
A high-end product needs to be future-proof so your system stays up-to-date with the latest technology. Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 provides all next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity to keep you up to speed.
