10 Layers PCB
For richer feature and powerful performance on mini-ITX board Z690I AORUS ULTRA DDR4, ten layers mid-loss PCB was adopted to make it work. Comparing with regular 8-layer PCB, two more layers for power solution and ground is added. In order to fully support 12th Gen CPU and get ready for the future, power trace need more space than previous generation. An extra layer is exclusively for the power delivery. Furthermore, a complete ground layer improves the signal integrity and helps PCB to dissipate heat. Along with ten layered, low impedance, 2X Copper PCB, Z690I AORUS ULTRA DDR4 is unbeatable among all motherboards.
