The falcon utilizes its powerful wings to soar through the skies and lock down its prey. The AORUS Core takes inspiration from the falcons aerodynamic wings, incorporating a multi-layered design which features wing shaped contours and also resembles the falcons high velocity ascension and dive through the skies. With sleek and metallic armor, the AORUS Core symbolizes advancement in technology with its futuristic style.
6+2 Phases Digital Power Design
Z390 I AORUS PRO WIFI motherboard uses an all IR digital CPU power design which includes both digital PWM Controllers and PowIRStage MOSFET, and is capable of providing at least 40A of power from each phase,for a total of 240A. These 100% digital controllers and 8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard’s most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from the new 8-core 9th Gen Intel Core processors.
Advanced Thermal Design
Z390 I AORUS PRO WIFI uses very high performance thermal design with extended heatsink enlarged surface area to dissipate the heat, thick thermal pad & 2 in 1 PCH+ M.2 Heatsink providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts, overclockers and gamers.
Smashes the GbE Barrier!
Intel Next-Gen Wireless solution supports 802.11ac Wave 2 function, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 1.73Gbps. Double the speed compared to the previous generation. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4x range over BT4.2 and with faster transmission.
HDMI 2.0 for 4K / 60P / 21:9 / HDCP 2.2 Support
HDMI 2.0, which is backwards compatible with HDMI 1.4, offers 18 Gb/s of bandwidth nearly twice that of the previous generation. This unlocks the potential for users to transfer multiple video streams, as well as a native cinematic 21:9 ratio (which most movies are shot in), offering the best visual experience for viewers.
Dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2
AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential.
AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
USB Type-C Front Panel Connector
Equipped with next generation connectivity AORUS Gaming Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C header for USB 3.1 Gen1 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.1 Gen1 drive or charging your new mobile device.
With AORUS Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Addressable LEDs.* RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on Z390 Series AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Addressable LED support. With external digital LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
Multi-Zone Light Show Design
Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.
