Gigabyte unleashes Z370 AORUS motherboards for 8th Generation Intel Core CPUs

Gigabyte has unveiled the new Z370 AORUS motherboards based on the Intel Z370 chipset. These supercharged motherboards are equipped with a server-grade digital power design that fully supports 8th Generation Intel Core processors. Performance-tuned, the Z370 AORUS motherboards are compatible with memory modules rated for 4133MHz. With unique features like an ESS Sabre DAC, Smart Fan 5, and RGB Fusion, there's no doubt why gamers turn to AORUS for the ultimate gaming motherboard.

Designed with 14nm technology, the 8th Generation Intel Core processors range from quad-core variants with four threads to six-core models with 12 threads, each performing better than the preceding processors. The Z370 AORUS motherboards deliver the highest video quality, 4K UHD, and an uninterrupted streaming to users through the use of HDCP 2.2 technology, HEVC 10-bit decoder, and a VP9 hardware decoder.

“Following Intel’s release of the Z370 chipset platform, Gigabyte has designed a new, groundbreaking motherboard,” said Vincent Liu, Senior Associate Vice President of Gigabyte's Motherboard Business Unit. “Gigabyte Z370 AORUS motherboards are designed for gamers who value powerful, yet highly durable motherboards. With our new digital power design, not only will Z370 AORUS motherboards unleash the power of the 8th generation Intel Core processors, they will easily fulfill gamers’ demands.”

The Z370 AORUS motherboards utilize a new VRM and PWM design which is able to drive 60 amps per power phase as well as strengthen the signal between the processor and voltage regulator. Paired with an ESS Sabre DAC and the Creative Sound BlasterX 720 software, the Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 offers unrivaled audio performance. This synergy of hardware and software allows users a distinct advantage in multiplayer online games.

Smart Fan 5 has been a sought after feature for gamers and PC enthusiasts. With the flagship Z370 AORUS Gaming 7, Smart Fan 5 introduces active cooling. Active cooling integrates a unique fan positioned near the VRMSs for systems built with AIO liquid coolers where airflow is not present.

Other technologies that can be found on Z370 AORUS motherboards are M.2 Thermal Guards which cool down the next-generation form factor of storage. AORUS Thermal Guards reside M.2 slots ensuring that gamers and power users will receive the most optimal transfer speeds from their top of the line storage devices.
