GIGABYTE Technology today announced a few new PC components that supported the latest Intel 12th Gen processor including the Z690 AORUS Gaming mainboard, AORUS 5,200MHz DDR5 Memory Kit & AORUS WATERFORCE Liquid Cooler.
The GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS support the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. Featuring up to 20+1+2 phases digital power VRM design with each phase holding up to 105 amps and an improved Fins-Array III heatsink design, GIGABYTE’s Z690 AORUS lineup is geared with the best power design and thermal management to unleash the extreme performance and optimized overclocking ability on the new generation multi-core K series Intel® Core™ processors. The PCIe® 5.0 PCBs, slots, and components are also implemented in GIGABYTE’s Z690 AORUS motherboards for enhanced performance and stability. The exclusive SMD memory slots with a metal shielding mask for anti-interference and the BIOS setting of DDR5 memory overclocking offer more stable signals to memory, which enable users to boost XMP and overclocking performance with stability. Selected GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS motherboards offer feature-rich I/O with an integrated I/O shield as well as the newest Thermal Guard III design, Smart Fan 6 and much more. Performance, power management, thermals, audio, GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS motherboards check all the boxes for users seeking to take their computing firepower to the next level.
In addition to the AORUS Gaming motherboards, GIGABYTE also launches three Z690 AERO-series motherboards for creator; Z690 AERO G and Z690 AERO G DDR4. Feature the noted VisionLINK technology, which allows for data and video transmission based on USB Type-C® Interface and provides power delivery up to 60W for high-end pen displays. VisionLINK technology enables performance sharing from high-end graphics card to the pen displays through DP_IN interface, which promise creators a smoother working environment avoiding cable clutter and saving more time, space, and effort on content creation. The VisionLINK TB on Z690 AERO D is an advanced version of VisionLINK technology, which supports all Thunderbolt™ 4 features and 60W power supply as well. In addition, the features of 2.5Gbit Ethernet, Intel® WiFi 6E 802.11ax network, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 and front Type-C® interface also help creators significantly improve their work efficiency.
AORUS DDR5 5200MHz 32GB Memory Kit will be supporting the latest Intel® Z690 platform for the brand new level of performance. AORUS Memory DDR5 32GB 5200 MHz features two 16GB DDR5 XMP 5200 MHz designs to provide higher frequency and performance than native DDR5 memories. With GIGABYTE Z690 motherboards, it can further unlock the limitation of memory clock to enhance performance by DDR5 XMP Booster and XMP 3.0 User Profile. The new On-Die ECC feature of DDR5 highlights error correction which can detect and correct most common memory data damage to improve the stability of data. In addition, the copper-aluminium heat spreader with the nano-carbon coating can effectively reduce the heat generated by the memories under high-speed operation, offering excellent performance and avoiding instability from overheating.
With the launch of the latest Intel® Z690 chipset and 12th generation Core™ processors, most of the existing liquid coolers in the market are unable to support it due to the socket change. GIGABYTE AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series took into account the structural changes of coming platform at the initial stage of development, and designed the visionary accessories with brackets for LGA 1700 which let users embrace the new platform easily without updating water cooling devices.” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division.
GIGABYTE AORUS WATERFORCE and AORUS WATERFORCE X series AIO liquid coolers follow the praise of the previous generation AIO cooling, and keep the notable exclusive design with bunch of enhancements in response to users’ feedback. In addition to the durability and high compatibility, they can pass the Prime 95 non AVX stress test with the 12th gen. Intel® Core™ processor by Turbo Boost Technology which ensure users a stable use without any concerns.
