About the GIGABYTE Z590 GAMING X Motherboard
Direct Power Design
The GIGABYTE Z590 GAMING X motherboard uses a 12+1 phases digital CPU power design which includes both a digital PWM Controller and DrMOS. The 100% digital controller and additional 8+4 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard’s most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components.
PCIe 4.0 Design
The GIGABYTE Z590 Gaming X is fitted with a single PCIe 4.0 x16 slot giving you access to the latest generation of transfer speeds.
The Gaming X boasts 1x PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot giving you up 64 GBs theoretical bandwidth and with an additional 2x 3.0 x4 slots you have enough storage expansion to cover all of your needs.
Boasting Intel 2.5G LAN the GIGABYTE Z590 Gaming X provides up to 2.5GbE network connectivity with at least 2x faster transfer speeds than standard gigabit networking, giving you an immediate boost to overall network performance making it perfectly designed for gamers by supporting them with the ultimate online gaming experience.
Intel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and USB 3.2 Gen1 , the much improved USB 3.2 Gen2 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.
Advanced Thermal Solution
The GIGABYTE Z590 GAMING X uses high performance Fully Covered thermal design with high coverage MOSFET Heatsinks and thick thermal pad, providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts, overclockers and gamers.
M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
Smart Fan 6
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintains its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump.
The GIGABYTE Z590 GAMING X features RGB FUSION 2.0 and offers users the option to control onboard, external light strips, and/or GIGABYTE devices with RGB/ Addressable RGB LEDs to make their PC more unique and stylish. Now offering more LED customisations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle.
Hi-Fi Audio System
GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers.
Audio Noise Guard
GIGABYTE motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level.
