Z690 AORUS TACHYON
Z690 AORUS TACHYON is the pinnacle of overclocking motherboard completely designed by and for overclockers, who are continuously seeking to break unimaginable performance limit. Its specialized VRM design, memory layout trace and built-in overclocking buttons and switches enable overclocking enthusiasts to unleash full potential of latest generation Intel Core processor.
- VRM Design Digital PWM Controller VRM design uses RENESAS RAA229131 PWM controller that directly drives 15 phases for the highest efficiency. 105A Power Stage Each vcore VRM phase uses 105A RAA220105 Power stage for maximum current capacity under extreme overclocking.
- Tantalum Capacitor Matrix VRM design uses 100% full tantalum polymer capacitors for better transient response and less mechanical interference with extreme overclocking cooling device.
- Dual CPU Power Connectors Dual 8 pin CPU power connectors with metal shielding provide maximal current input to processor.
- Power Architecture GIGABYTE DIRECT VRM DESIGN The more advanced manufacturing process and the higher core count on the new generation of CPUs, requires motherboards to utilize a more sophisticated VRM design to make CPUs run at their full potential. GIGABYTE uses fully DIRECT VRM DESIGN, high quality MOSFETs and tantalum polymer capacitors to achieve higher efficiency, lower voltage ripple and lower temperature than traditional parallel VRM design.
- Tantalum Polymer Capacitor Matrix By using 100% tantalum polymer capacitors design, it's easier for professional overclockers to insulate VRM area and use LN2 pot to cool down CPU without mechanical interference.
- Improved Transient Response With DIRECT VRM DESIGN and TANTALUM POLYMER CAPACITOR, Z690 motherboards transient response, voltage ripple and stability is highly improved under overclocking and heavy loading condition.
- Memory - GIGABYTE exclusive circuit design unlocks Native DDR5 voltage control - Transforms Native DDR5 memory module to Overclocked DDR5 memory - Increases DDR5 memory overclocking performance and capability - Supports all PMIC vendors for maximum compatibility
- XTREME MEMORY With 2-DIMM daisy chain memory trace layout, Z690 AORUS TACHYON can achieve the shortest memory DIMM distance between CPU, therefore reach the highest memory clock and the lowest latency.
- Shielded Memory Routing All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.
- Connectivity PCIe 5.0 DESIGN GIGABYTE Z690 Motherboards are ready to work with the upcoming PCIe 5.0 devices which are expected to experience double bandwidth than the current PCIe 4.0 devices. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, Gigabyte R&D uses the low impedance PCB to provide the maximum performance.
- Intel 802.11ax WIFI 6E Intel latest Wireless solution 802.11ax WIFI 6E with new dedicated 6GHz band, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps*. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission.
- Benefit of WIFI 6E - Dedicated spectrum in 6GHz band for less interference - 5.5X throughput than 802.11ac 1x1 - 4X better network capacity, no traffic jams especially in those dense area with lots of devices - Network efficiency increase for better user experience
- First adopter on Intel 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
- WIFI 6E Advantage Spectrum congestion is huge problem in current WIFI environment nowadays because too many devices all use existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum, and it cause unreliable connection and slower speed. WIFI 6E is extended standard to WIFI 6, and it use dedicated 6GHz band that it provides not only brand new frequency to transfer data, but also spacious spectrum for future more devices. With WIFI 6E, users can enjoy faster connection and stronger signal than before.
- AORUS Antenna - All new antenna supported 802.11ac 2.4GHz & 5GHz, 4dBi signal gain - 2x signal strength compared to traditional antenna design - Two antenna with smart antenna function for the best WIFI signal transmitting - Multiple angle tilt and magnetic base for the best signal strength direction and location
