Z790 motherboards with DDR5-7600: Gigabyte presents Aorus and Aero for Raptor Lake


Gigabyte has the first four Z790 motherboards from the Aorus and Aero series for the hybrid CPUs from Intel's Core i 13000 series (“Raptor Lake”), which will be released on October 20th. presented, which should support up to DDR5-7600. In addition, the four main boards should be able to score with a very potent power supply.

Fast memory and stable voltages

Gigabyte has introduced the Z790 Aorus Extreme, Z790 Aorus Master, Z790 Elite AX and Z790 Aero G models, all of which are said to score particularly well with support for particularly high clocked DDR5 type RAM with up to 7,600 MT/s.

For the Gigabyte Z790 Aorus Extreme, which has not yet received a product page and image gallery, the manufacturer has published at least a one-minute product video that shows the board and presents their feature set.

The prices are still available unknown

The manufacturer has not yet provided any binding information on the non-binding prices or the availability of its Z790 mainboards. The Intel Core i 13000 series will be launched on October 20th with more cores, more clocks and more TDP for (much) more CPU performance. Gigabyte will want to accompany the launch with all four boards.
