UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE With the fast-moving technology changes, GIGABYTE always follows the latest trends and provides customers with advanced features and latest technologies. GIGABYTE motherboards are equipped with upgraded power solution, latest storage standards and outstanding connectivity to enable optimized performance for gaming. To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and overclocking performance of AMD's new generation CPU, GIGABYTE AORUS series motherboard equip the best VRM design ever built with the highest quality components. Ultra Durable™ SMD PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 Connector The first PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 Slot supports the latest M.2 25110 form factor. Reinforced PCIe 5.0 M.2 connectors with metal shielding to provide higher strength. Shielded Memory Routing All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference. EXPO and XMP Dual Support GIGABYTE AM5 MB supports both AMD EXPO™ and/or Intel® XMP overclocking memory modules for maximal compatibility. MB will automatically detect both profiles format in SPD, users can choose to enable one of profiles from BIOS menu and easily reach overclocked memory performance. DDR5 Auto Booster Automatically Boost the Native DDR5 frequency to 5000MHz while the system is under heavy loading by a single click. AMD EXPO™ and Intel® XMP 3.0 User Profile Define and create your own SPD profile into Native, EXPO and XMP 3.0 memory modules. One user-defined profile can be saved, loaded either locally or from/to an external storage device. - One empty SPD profile can be defined by users and carry to next computer - Quick memory performance simulation based on user input clock and timing parameters - Profile save and load function to share your memory parameters online GIGABYTE Active OC Tuner With GIGABYTE's exclusive Active OC Tuner BIOS function, CPU* can work with AMD P.B.O. for gaming and other light workload applications with the highest CPU boost clock, but when the applications require all CPU cores horsepower, it automatically switches to the Manual OC mode where it can utilize the high frequency for all the CPU cores. OUTSTANDING THERMAL DESIGN GIGABYTE Motherboards' unparalleled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming performance. 3X Large Surface Increased surface area up to 3X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs. 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. 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 III M.2 Thermal Guard III constructed with 6X optimized heat dissipation surface to prevent throttling and bottleneck that high-speed/ large capacity of M.2 SSDs may cause, especially under heavy workload. The special design of heatsink grooves in the direction of CPU further enhances the in-chassis air flow and optimizes the heat convection efficiency. Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI 1. Improve fan curve UI We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control. 2. Slope/Stair dual graph mode Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval. 3. Manual Input For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control. 4. EZ Tuning Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve. 5. Fan curve profile Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS. CONNECTIVITY GIGABYTE Motherboards enable the ultimate connection experience with blazing data-transfer speeds through the next generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity. First adopter on 2.5GbE LAN onboard 2X Faster than ever - Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least 2X faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking, perfectly designed for gamers with ultimate online gaming experience. - Support Multi-Gig(10/100/1000/2500Mbps) RJ-45 Ethernet Connecting the Future - Front USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C® Featuring the USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 design which is doubled the performance than previous generation of USB 3.2 Gen 2. It works up to 20Gbps ultra-fast data transfer while connecting to USB 3.2 compliant peripherals. Through the USB Type-C® connector, users can enjoy the flexibility of reversible connection to access and store massive amounts of data rapidly. CONNECTING THE FUTURE - Rear USB3.2 Gen 2 Type-C® AMD's native USB 3.2 Gen 2 provides USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports with speeds up to 10Gbps. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and USB 3.2 Gen1, the much improved USB 3.2 Gen 2 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices. True High-Fidelity Music (Realtek ALC1220) Paired with Realtek's latest ALC1220 Codec, playback for surround sound audio and DSD enabled music are easier than ever. High-End Audio Capacitors AORUS motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers. Audio Noise Guard AORUS motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. PERSONALIZATION GIGABYTE motherboards bundle several useful and intuitive software to help users to control every aspect of motherboard and provide customizable lighting effect with outstanding aesthetics to fit your unique personality. RGB Fusion Multi-Zone Light Show Design Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle.
