Gigabyte has announced the Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS and Z690I AORUS ULTRA LITE gaming motherboards, both with a DDR5 and a DDR4 variant.
The powerful Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS features what you can expect from an Intel Z690 chipset motherboard with support for DDR5 memory modules, PCIe 5.0 devices, and the 12th Gen Intel Core processors. It comes with an Intel Killer Wi-FI AX1690 6E controller with DCT (Double Connect Technology) and Intel 2.5GbE LAN for connectivity. The motherboard features a 10+1+2 phase power design and the Fins-Array II heatsink. The DDR4 variant is similar to the Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS, except that it supports DDR4 RAM.
The Z690I AORUS ULTRA LITE is a more budget-friendly option with some downgrades but lets users get their hands on an Intel Z690 motherboard. While it has similar specs as the Ultra Plus models, it supports PCIe 3.0 and Wi-Fi 6 only, instead of PCIe 4.0 and Wi-Fi 6E.
Both the Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS and Z690I AORUS ULTRA LITE are now available in the market but we have yet to receive updates on the availability in Malaysia and local pricing.
