Is your PC ready for VR?
The performance requirements for VR games are much higher than for typical games. Next-Gen VR devices require wireless connectivity for the optimal experience, and high-end thermal design to minimize possible stuttering.  Both are featured in the Z490 AORUS Series.
How to choose a new and powerful gaming PC?
The Z490 AORUS XTREME is the best choice, as it possess excellent hardware designs like 16-phase digital power delivery, advanced thermal management, and the extreme memory design to delivery incredible system stability and speed to optimize overclocking performance on 10th Gen Intel Core i9 Processors.  Go with high-end graphic card and other components to make up a powerful gaming PC.
How does the Z490 AORUS Series improves effciency for users?
The Z490 AORUS Series features DDR4 XMP Up to 5000MHz, triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 for users who demand high capacity and the best performance for graphic design, video editing or other high loading applications.
Even when gaming on the highest settings, how does the Z490 optimize a stable performance?
Stable Vcore is not the only solution. Making the board stable lies in thermal design. The improved Fins-Array II introduced a louvered fin design.  Louvered fins increase air molecular scrubbing which assists the air molecules in absorbing more heat.  Also, Direct-Touch II increases the diameter from 6mm to 8mm and a “forced fit” creates a very small gap for better heat transfer.
Are there other features that gamers might be interested in?
Something that may not be noticeable is the change to the M.2 Thermal Guard II. An additional bottom heatsink to the M.2 should further prevent thermal throttling.  With increased M.2 capacities on the market now, users can rest reassured that one can load and play games for a long duration with the M.2.
