Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS gaming motherboard with Double Connect Technology (DCT) holds AX1690 Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E, 2.5 Gbit Ethernet, and high-quality audio are among the characteristics of these two models, available in DDR4 and DDR5. GIGABYTE also offers the Z690I AORUS ULTRA LITE with PCIe 3.0 and Wi-Fi 6.
The Intel Killer Wi-Fi AX1690 Wi-Fi 6E controller with DCT (Double Connect technology) offers multiple Wi-Fi radios and task division for gaming and other applications. There is no need for a single connection because two Wi-Fi bands can be used simultaneously, with the 6 GHz band being prioritized for gaming and the 2.4 GHz band for other tasks. It also identifies and prioritizes game traffic to improve online gaming latency and VR experience. Wi-Fi 6E DC gives 7 times the throughput of 802.11ac 1×1. Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS gives the most comprehensive and versatile network options.
The Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS has 3rd generation heatpipe thermal design for the greatest power design and thermal management to unleash exceptional performance and optimized overclocking ability on the latest generation multi-core K series Intel Core CPUs. Both the power and ground layers use 2OZ copper for increased heat dissipation up to 13°C drop to avoid CPU throttling due to overheating. The GIGABYTE Z690 motherboards also feature Smart Fan 6 technology for more flexible fan allocation, easier fine tuning, and advanced manual configuration. Users may now fine-tune the gaming system’s temperature for ideal quiet, cool, and performance.
Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS uses PCIe 5.0 designs for PCB, slots, and components to improve performance. With SMD memory DIMMs, metal armor, and Shielded Memory Routing, customers may enjoy superior memory overclocking performance on both DDR4 and DDR5 models. The proprietary DDR5 overclocking, overvoltage and BIOS settings promise to increase overclocking and XMP performance quickly and easily.
The GIGABYTE Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS motherboard has USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 and Gen 2 connectors. The deep and plentiful sound experience with DTS:X Ultra is ideal for gaming or entertainment. In addition to the above unique designs, GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS motherboards feature a graphical BIOS configuration interface that displays critical information such as clock speeds, RAM, storage devices, fan status settings, and other important hardware information. Q-Flash allows users to flash a BIOS file without installing a CPU, RAM, GPU, or other peripherals.
GIGABYTE also released the Z690I AORUS ULTRA LITE with PCIe 3.0 and Wi-Fi 6. This variant is available in DDR5 and DDR4, making it ideal for mini-systems.
