Gigabyte Z590 AORUS Master Motherboard ReviewPosted on 2021-04-26 14:32:09 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Alright we are finally kicking off our Z590 motherboard reviews! While we've had these boards for a while now getting processors was a little more difficult than we anticipated. 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 2x2 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. Is this the ultimate Z590 motherboard? Read on as we find out!
