GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS MASTER – GreenTech_Reviews

Some manufacturers, when developing motherboards based on the Intel Z490 chipset, have provided support for one of the most important innovations of the 11th generation processors – PCIe version 4.0. But it was impossible not to release the updated series of motherboards based on the Intel Z590 chipset for a number of reasons. If visually the Z590 AORUS Master practically does not differ from the Z490 AORUS Master (if you look closely, there are differences, but we are talking about the visual component), then inside the changes are very significant – especially the power subsystem and its cooling system. The first was noticeably strengthened, and the second received an active mode of operation.

GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS PRO AX – Tom’s Hardware

The Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Pro AX positions itself as a mid-range SKU with a modest (for recent motherboard generations) price of $289.99. For that price, you get the most USB ports — thirteen, including USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C port — we’ve seen on any motherboard in quite a while. Additionally, the board includes the latest audio codec, extreme overclocking-capable power delivery and four M.2 sockets. This, coupled with a reasonable price tag, yields a great option fory new Intel-based builds.

Getting the most out of Intel’s Rocket Lake silicon requires a solid platform with multiple aspects, and there are quite a lot of premium Z590 models capable of pushing the limits of both the memory and CPU. One of the more specific models aimed purely at squeezing as much performance from Rocket Lake is the GIGABYTE Z590 Aorus Tachyon. Designed for overclockers, particularly extreme overclocks wanting to go sub-zero, the Z590 Aorus Tachyon has one of the most interesting designs with an extended ATX sized frame but with just two memory slots.

We are back this time with a Z590 motherboard! This one is also from Gigabyte and if you remember from the last review of the Z490 AORUS Master I was really excited to be able to try both motherboards with the new Intel i9 11900K processor. I faced a few challenges with the Z490. Most of that challenge was the RAM. I was struggling to get anything to run over 4000MHz. I hoped that it was the chipset and not a weak Memory controller on the processor. That is one of the first things I am going to try when I get this motherboard up and running. Because I can’t be sure either way until I try this new i9 on a Z590 chipset. So until then we will continue with all the details of the Z590 VISION G we have before us.

GIGABYTE Z590 VISION G – Tom’s Hardware

Gigabyte’s Z590 Vision G has all the parts you expect from a mid-range motherboard. Features are plentiful, from its unique appearance and distinctive VRM heatsink design to the high-end audio solution. We find an Intel-based 2.5 GbE LAN on the networking side, while on the storage front, there’s an astounding four M.2 sockets (three PCIe 4.0 x4), along with the standard six SATA ports. On the audio side, the Vision G uses the latest premium Realtek ALC4080 codec, supporting DTS:X Ultra.

As far as premium GIGABYTE Z590 models go, the Z590 Aorus Master sits just behind GIGABYTE’s flagship water-cooled Z590 Aorus Xtreme WaterForce and air-cooled Z590 Aorus Xtreme models. Regarding usable and core features, the Z590 Aorus Master has pretty much what you would expect from a mid-premium model. What GIGABYTE does have is plenty to focus on, including a nice aesthetic, with a predominately black PCB, black heatsinks, and black and silver PCIe slot armor, as well as matching M.2 heatsinks.

Z590 is exciting from a chipset standpoint and Intel boards are finally going to get some of the features AMD boards have had for a while now, the biggest being support for PCI-Express 4.0 from the CPU.  So if you have an 11th Gen CPU the PCIe and M.2 slots powered by the CPU will offer Gen4 connectivity.  You are also going to get USB 3.2 gen 2×2 from the chipset as well as native support for 3200 MHz DDR4 memory.  Our first Z590 motherboard we are taking a look at is the Gigabyte Z590 AORUS Master.  In the AORUS line Gigabyte is offering 9 Z590 boards with the AORUS Master sitting towards the top of the product stack.  It is going to offer a 19-phase VRM with 90A power stages, three M.2 slots, WiFi 6E, 10GbE LAN, and that sleek AORUS look with a full-cover aluminum backplate.

GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS XTREME – GreenTech_Reviews

The motherboard is made on the basis of an 8-layer black PCB in the E-ATX format (30.5 x 27.1 cm), so it is not possible to install it in every “standard case”, taking into account the connectors going to the side (in particular, the 24-pin one). But this is not a problem, because the assembled system is unlikely to be compact – no one will save on the case anymore. This board, after all, belongs to the “maximum possible for enthusiasts” class, not under the table. The design is dominated by black and gray colors with mirrored elements.
