Creativity Starts Here
AERO Series motherboards are a fresh approach to creators that evolve with optimized features for content creation. To deliver reliable computing performance, impressive connectivity, expandable graphics, and ultra-fast storage for creators to deal with heavy design workloads like 3D rendering and feature-length video production.

Go Further Without More Cables
GIGABYTE VisionLINK is an extension of your idea and creation. Transmitting data, video output, and power charging all through one USB Type-C® cable will simplify the user experience than ever. With seamless multitasking between your PC and devices, it lets you work like a pro.

All at One Cable that Does It All.
Did you experience your pen display connecting to the PC with lots of cables? GIGABYTE VisionLINK lets you not only without cable clutter, but also the benefit of data, video, and power charging the same time. One USB Type-C® cable connected, turn your workspace into neat and tidy.

Add Graphic Power to You
Ever wondered if you can have your discrete, high-end graphics card to power your pen display? Through the DisplayPort™_In and VisionLINK connections, the performance of the discrete graphics card is delivered to the pen display. Bring your creation into incredible realism and performance.

DisplayPort™Alternate Mode with USB Power Delivery
VisionLINK equips with the unique capability of data delivery, the DisplayPort Alternate Mode for video signal, and 60W Power Delivery design for your devices charging. It’s a perfectly tailored connectivity for creators and professional artists.

Wait No More
Brings a speed network experience to life

Intel® 2.5 GbE network connectivity supports speeds up to 2.5 times faster than Gigabit Ethernet. It gives an immediate boost to overall network performance and data transfer speeds.

WIFI 6, Ideal for All Your Online Activities
Onboard WIFI 6 technology supports 802.11ax with Bluetooth module technology, enables gigabit wireless performance, fewer dropped connections, and reduces congestion in heavy bandwidth usage scenarios. Moreover, providing better WIFI signal strength of the antenna design compared to a traditional antenna.

SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps
No Hassle Connection.

To feature the USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 connectivity design, which is double performance than the current USB 3.2 Gen 2. It works up to 20Gbps ultra-fast data transfer while connecting to USB 3.2 compliant peripherals. You can enjoy the ultimate connection flexibility to access and store massive amounts of data rapidly.

Faster Instant Reaction Speed
You can never have enough memory bandwidth, and DDR5 helps meet this insatiable need for speed. Whether you are editing hundreds of audio samples, handling 4K footage, or multitasking workloads, it boosts system performance and offers you a smooth experience.

DDR5 Bandwidth
DDR5 delivers at least 1.5X more bandwidth than the prior generation. This will facilitate the bandwidth needed for some applications, such as AI training and content creation.​

Single 32GB Support
Bring your tasks without lag.

A single memory slot of the Z690 motherboard can support up to 32GB. With populated 2 DIMMs per channel on GIGABYTE Z690 motherboards, the maximum memory capacity support is 128GB. You can experience faster performance and instant access without any lag.

The Fastest,
Most Robust Level

Equipped with the PCIe 5.0 x16 slot designed to optimize multitasking and large workloads, that is also ready for a new PCIe 5.0 graphics card or storage device. Brings a new level of performance for demanding applications in the high-performance market.

PCIe Bandwidth
Up to 128 GB/s from new PCIe 5.0 x16 slot designs for the next generation add on cards need tremendous bandwidth, including the graphics card, deep learning accelerator card and the video capture card.

Fast Speed. More Space.
This new model is equipped with four PCIe 4.0 M.2 sockets and it is capable to deliver superior bandwidth. Upgrade your storage configuration now to accelerate your workflow. PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD gives you 7X faster data transferring speeds compared to 2.5” SATA solid-state drives.

NVMe PCIe x4 M.2
GIGABYTE's M.2 solution provides NVMe SSD RAID support for fast storage performance. For creators who demand high capacity and fast storage ability, the full speed PCIe 4.0 M.2 sockets offer them the flexibility for many storage combinations.

Creates Exclusive Storage Performance
The exclusive four PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 sockets are designed to handle the most data-consuming tasks without extra configuration.

Thermal Technology
An effective cooling solution can prevent the risk of design work being interrupted by an unexpected system crash. GIGABYTE’s advanced thermal solutions provide a perfect balance of aesthetics and performance. A large heat sink design and Direct-Touch Heatpipe II ensure stability during creative sessions.

M.2 Thermal Guard
GIGABYTE provides an Ultra-Efficient thermal solution for the latest PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD drives. The enlarged M.2 heatsink also prevents thermal throttling of all M.2 SSDs and dissipates heat before it becomes a problem.

SMART FAN 6
Numerous hybrid fan headers and temperature sensors are planted on the motherboard to monitor in real time and configure fan mode to fit different workloads via Smart Fan 6. Creators are allowed to set the trigger point to activate the fan and its corresponding speed. The fan completely stops when performing light tasks to avoid noise.
