Z690 AORUS ELITE - THE NEW KING OF GAMING
Rule supreme with the Z690 AORUS gaming motherboards. The new king of gaming platform continues the legendary AORUS bloodline with the most robust power delivery and dominant thermal design, glorified with the complete memory overclocking technology to crown your PC with the best Alder Lake's performance in all its gaming glory.



UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE
With technology moving so fast, GIGABYTE still keep up with the latest trends and provide our customers with advanced features and latest technology. GIGABYTE Z690 Series motherboards come with upgraded power solution, latest storage standards and outstanding connectivity to enable optimize performance for gaming
Twin Hybrid VRM Design
To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and overclocking performance of Intel's new generation CPU, GIGABYTE Z690 series equip the best VRM design ever built with the highest quality components.


The more advanced manufacturing process and the higher core count on the new generation of CPUs, requires motherboards to utilize a more sophisticated VRM design to make CPUs run at their full potential. GIGABYTE uses fully DIRECT VRM DESIGN, high quality MOSFETs and tantalum polymer capacitors to achieve higher efficiency, lower voltage ripple and lower temperature than traditional parallel VRM design.


Tantalum Polymer Capacitor
- Lower impedance than regular capacitor to reduce voltage ripple
- Stable capacitance under high temperatur
- Mounted right under the CPU area to stabilize CPU voltage during heavy loading


PCIe 5.0 DESIGN
GIGABYTE Z690 Motherboards are ready to work with the upcoming PCIe 5.0 devices which are expected to experience double bandwidth than the current PCIe 4.0 devices. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, GIGABYTE R&D uses the low impedance PCB to provide the maximum performance.


Ultra Durable™ SMD PCIe 5.0 Armor
GIGABYTE' exclusive stainless steel shielding design
SMD Iron Claw


Double Locking Bracket


Tensile Strength


SMD High-Frequency


Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5333MHz and Beyond*
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5333MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS otherboard.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.


Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.


Single 32GB Support
The maximum memory capacity on the Z690 motherboard is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Therefore with populated 2 DIMM per channel on both channel, total memory capacity is 128GB, which was only available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.


RAID Storage
M.2 + M.2 + M.2
Extreme sequential Read 21053 MB/s, Sequential Write 15499 MB/s speed
Triple 7G/s Gen4 M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
The exclusive 3 PCIe 4.0 M.2 from CPU and 2nd Generation 7000 MB/s SSD provides unparalleled Read/ Write performance up to 21053 and 15499 MB/s.

- Maximize full multi-cores performance


THERMAL REACTIVE ARMOR
GIGABYTE Z690 Series Motherboards' Un-throttled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming.
Thermal Design
Fully Covered Thermal Design
High coverage MOSFET and integrated molding Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.
M.2 Thermal Guard II
M.2 Thermal Guard II uses a double-sided heatsink design and prevents throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating heat before it becomes an issue.
Enlarged Thermal Guard
Enlarged double-sided M.2 heatsink prevents high-speed, large capacity PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs with double side flash from throttling due to overheating.
5 W/mK Thermal Pad
By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.
2X Copper PCB
2X Copper PCBs design effectively lower the component temperature by its high thermal conductivity and low impedance.


Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink
2X Large Surface
Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.
Real One-piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors' multi-piece design.
Multi-Cut Design
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance.


M.2 Thermal Guard II


3% Cooler by implementing 2X copper PCB Design
By adopting 2X copper on PCB inner layer, it lowers the components' temperature at least 3% by turning the PCB into a super thin PCB size copper heatsink to dissipate the heat from the components effectively, due to it's high thermal conductivity and lower impedance.


SMART FAN 6
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.

Fan Stop
Fan can stop completely below users' specified temperature point


Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI
1 - Improve fan curve UI
We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control.
2 - Slope/Stair dual graph mode
Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval.
3 - Manual Input
For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control.
4 - EZ Tuning
Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve.
5 - Fan curve profile
Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS.


FAN STOP
Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop, map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature-all of it can be customized to your liking.

Allowances

As an international traveller you are entitled to bring a certain amount/value of goods that are free of Customs duty and exempt Goods and Services tax (GST) into New Zealand. This is called your duty free allowance and personal goods concession. It is important to review these for any purchases you make on The Mall.

Your duty free allowance entitles you to bring into New Zealand the following quantities of alcohol products free of customs duty and GST provided you are over 17 years of age. You do need to be 18 years or over to purchase. 

  • Up to six bottles (4.5 litres) of wine, champagne, port or sherry or
  • Up to twelve cans (4.5 litres) of beer
  • And three bottles (or other containers) each containing not more than 1125ml of spirits, liqueur, or other spirituous beverages


Goods other than alcohol and tobacco, whether purchased overseas or purchased duty free in New Zealand, that have a combined total value not exceeding NZ$700 may also be brought as part of your personal goods concession. 

When travelling overseas there are legal limits on the amount of duty free alcohol and other goods you can take with you. These amounts will vary depending on the country you are flying into. We always recommend you check the latest limits and exemptions.

Click & Collect

Your order can be picked up at an Auckland Airport Collection Point. There is one in departures and one at arrivals in the international terminal. See map

You will need to bring your order confirmation email and show your passport to collect your order.
