GIGABYTE Z590 Aorus Ultra

The GIGABYTE Z590 Aorus Ultra is an ATX sized motherboard and caters towards the mid-range of the Z590 stack. GIGABYTE is advertising a 17-phase power delivery, organized into an 8+1 configuration with the CPU section doubling up on its 90 A power stages. Design-wise, the Z590 Aorus Ultra has a black PCB, with black and silver M.2 and chipset heatsinks, with an Aorus styled design built into the rear panel cover.

Towards the board's central and bottom area are three full-length PCIe slots, with the top two operating at PCIe 4.0 x16 and x8/x8, while the third full-length slot is locked at PCIe 3.0 x4. Storage options include one PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2, two PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2, and six SATA ports, with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10. GIGABYTE is currently listing Intel spec memory support with DDR4-3200, but this is likely to be higher once GIGABYTE has published its QVL memory list. However, the four memory slots do include support for up to 128 GB. In the top-right hand corner of the board is a two-digit LED debugger.

The rear panel is one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, four USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, four USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and four USB 2.0 ports. For users looking to leverage Intel's HD integrated graphics, there's a single DisplayPort. There are five 3.5 mm audio jacks and S/PDIF optical output powered by Realtek's latest ALC4080 HD audio codec. The board's networking capabilities include an Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controller, with an Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 CNVi, including support for BT 5.0 devices.

    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.

    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.

    Other being quite boring platform , there is noticeable lack of M-ATX offerings.

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