GIGABYTE Z590I Aorus Ultra

The GIGABYTE Z590I Aorus Ultra represents a small handful of mini-ITX boards so far announced for Z590, and it has got a pretty impressive feature set. GIGABYTE's mini-ITX offerings have been getting better and better over the years. The Z590I Aorus Ultra includes dual PCIe M.2 slots, a premium HD audio codec, as well as an Intel 2.5 GbE and Wi-Fi 6 network pairing.

Included in the specifications, GIGABYTE is advertising a direct 10+1 phase power delivery, with support for DDR4-5000 and up to 64 GB across two available memory slots. Along the bottom is a full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with multiple storage options, including one PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot, one PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA M.2 slot, and four SATA ports. The PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot is located on the front under a combined M.2 and chipset heatsink, while the PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA port is located on the back of the board. Design-wise, GIGABYTE uses its black and gray color scheme, which is a mainstay of the Aorus range, with a strip of RGB LED's located on the right-hand side of the board.

The rear panel includes one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-A, three USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports. An Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controller drives the single RJ45 port, while there are two antenna ports for the Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 CNVi, which includes support for BT 5.0 devices. The GIGABYTE uses a Realtek ALC1220-VB HD audio codec to power the three 3.5 mm audio jacks, while it also includes a DisplayPort and HDMI video output pairing. Finishing off the rear panel is a small Q-Flash Plus button for users looking to flash the board's firmware.

At the time of writing, GIGABYTE hasn't shared any details on its Z590 models' pricing.

    I'm a bit surprised they went to an x8 3.0 link on the chipset instead of an x4 4.0 one, even if everything coming off of the chipset is still limited to 3.0 speed. Reply

    Might be because it makes routing the traces easier, they don't have to adhere to the PCIe 4.0 signal requirements. Downside would be that more pins are required. Reply

    Also it seems like even with properly finned heatsinks Gigabyte Aorus master requires a fan to cool VRMs which is not a good sign. Reply
