To unleash full potential of multi-cores CPU performance
For CPU integrated GPU performance
Provide stable power for CPU integrated PCIe & Memory controller
- • Lower impedance than regular capacitor to reduce voltage ripple
- • Stable capacitance under high temperature
- • Mounted right under the CPU area to stabilize CPU voltage during heavy loading
- • Deactivate all E-Core
- • Zero compromise on gaming performance
- • Up to 20% lower CPU package power
- • Up to 5°C lower CPU temperature
- • Activate all P-Core and E-Core
- • Maximize full multi-cores performance
*XMP profile support may vary depending on memory module.
Please see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.
- • 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
** Photo for reference only.
- • Instantly upgrade memory performance
- • Overclock Native and XMP 3.0 DDR5 memory to higher frequency easily
- • No need to input dozens of memory parameters such as clock, voltage and timings
- • Built-in wide variety pre-tuned profiles database for different memory IC vendors
overclocking capability depends on users’ hardware configuration
- • Two empty SPD profiles can be defined by users and carry to next computer
- • Transfer DDR5 XMP Booster profiles into XMP 3.0 User Profiles
- • Quick memory performance simulation based on user input clock and timing parameters
- • Profile save and load function to share your memory parameters online
- • 900% bigger surface.
- • Extended Irregular design used all available space to dissipate heat.
- Base plate made of aluminum instead of traditional iron ensures 3X thermal conductivity.
- A thin layer of NanoCarbon is coated on the base plate through electrostatic adhesion to enhance thermal radiation capability.
- Transfer heat from the back side PCB to the base plate so the NanoCarbon base plate can dissipate heat passively.
- Effectively lowers backside PWM component temperature by 10%.

* Continuously 7GB/s Sequential Read without thermal throttle.
2X copper PCB Design
High Current SupportEach fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water cooling Pump , and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection
Precision Control7 temperature/fan speed control points for precise fan curve
Dual Curve ModeSlope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario
Fan StopFan can stop completely below users' specified temperature point
Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop, map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking.
Powered by Intel's own Thunderbolt controller the new Thunderbolt™ 4 protocol, which is available over two USB Type-C® connectors on the back I/O of the GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS XTREME, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s -- twice more than USB3.2 Gen2x2! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.4a* and compliant with USB4 standard, which is backwards compatible with USB 3.2 Gen1 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities.
Support for DisplayPort 1.4 makes Thunderbolt™ 4 a must have for any enthusiast. The Z690 AORUS XTREME is able to support two displays in 4K resolution at 60 FPS or one display in 8K resolution. In addition, Thunderbolt™ 4 over USB Type-C® has revolutionary industry-first features such as Power Delivery 2.0, USB4 specification compliance, and the ability to daisy-chain up to 10 devices thanks to the Z690 AORUS XTREME's dual USB Type-C® ports.
