On October 31st, 2022, GIGABYTE, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware solutions, announced some models of its motherboards based on the Intel Z790 chipset for Raptor Lake processors had received support for Intel XMP 3.0 profiles for automatic overclocking of DDR5 memory to effective frequencies of 8000 and even 8333 MHz with air cooling. Furthermore, the Taiwanese company supported manual memory overclocking up to 9300 MHz.
The fantastic performance of XMP DDR5-8000 on Z790 AORUS XTREME and Z790 AORUS Master motherboards confirms the improvement from hardware to firmware, including high-quality components, new generation shielded memory routing design, and the BIOS’s high-bandwidth setting is much better Memory stability and performance.
New generation shield memory routing and low signal loss PCB design optimized by Gigabyte’s Z790 Auris Tachyon, Z790 Auris Extreme, and Z790 Auris Master can effectively reduce internal and external signal loss or interference. which confirms the speed of DDR5. Moreover, the DDR5 memory upgrade and the XMP 3.0 user profile’s massive BIOS configuration improve memory performance.
At the same time, GIGABYTE’s exclusive High Bandwidth feature can further increase all bandwidth on XMP memories to provide higher memory performance without changing the memory clock speed. Enhanced with high-quality materials, exclusive hardware design, and BIOS settings, the GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS XTREME and Z790 AORUS Master launch a new level of performance with XMP DDR5-8000, while the Z790 AORUS TACHYON gains the outstanding performance of XMP DDR5-8333 and DDR5-9300 OC, through air cooling with its particular OC. It shows the high quality and ultimate performance of GIGABYTE motherboards.
Z790 AORUS TACHYON
TACHYON is specially designed for overclocking by leading overclockers. Consistent with GIGABYTE’s widely recognized durability and stability, the Z790 AORUS TACHYON utilizes its advanced direct VRM power design and MOS area full coverage thermal design to significantly improve heat dissipation. provides comprehensive management Meanwhile, the built-in overclocking kit design on the motherboard provides shortcut keys, toggle switches, and voltage detection functions that many overclockers use for overclocking adjustments. This allows for much easier tweaking by overclockers to quickly break the limit.
Z790 AORUS MASTER and GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS XTREME
The GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS XTREME and Z790 AORUS Master are designed exclusively for the latest 13th Generation Intel CoreTM processors. Featuring up to 20+1+2 phases of digital power VRM design with 105 amps per phase and a Fins-Array III heatsink design, these motherboards are designed with optimal power and thermal management for optimal performance and overclocking. can be improved. experience on next-generation multi-core K-series Intel CoreTM processors.
The optimized hardware and firmware design delivers a more stable signal to memory and enables users to quickly increase XMP and overclocking performance. The Z790 AORUS XTREME and Z790 AORUS MASTER provide users with highly durable motherboards with premium compatibility, breakthrough performance, optimized power supply, heat dissipation, and expansion at low temperatures.
