Whether you are a gaming enthusiast looking to unlock the full potential of your high-end components, or a creator looking to leverage raw power, the Z690 AORUS MASTER LGA1700 E-ATX Motherboard from GIGABYTE enables you to streamline productivity and enhance the look and feel of your games.

Based on the Z690 chipset, you get access to an LGA1700 socket, designed to work in conjunction with Intel 12th Gen processors. Four dual-channel DDR5 slots, six SATA III inputs, and five total M.2 interfaces are available for your multitasking and storage needs. One PCIe 5.0 x16 and two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (in x4 mode) allow you to install a wide range of graphics and utility cards. USB 3.2 Gen 1 and Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C ports offer quick data transfers with speeds up to 5 and 10 Gb/s, respectively, so you can easily connect your resource-demanding peripherals. A single USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C port provides bi-directional data transfer speeds up to 20 Gb/s, essential for mass storage arrays and other powerful devices. Connect wireless peripherals such as controllers and headphones with Bluetooth 5.2 technology. Connect to your network through wireless Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) or the integrated Marvell AQtion 10 GbE LAN port if you prefer a wired connection. Additionally, experience a wide range of sound with Realtek 7.1-channel audio, immersing you in your favorite media.


Direct digital VRM design ensures optimal performance with various levels of operation designed to leverage hybrid Intel CPUs. You get 19 VCORE phases at 105A power stage, 1 VCCGT Phase at 60A power stage, and two VCCAUX Phases at 70A DrMOS.

PCIe 5.0 Design

Experience enhanced speeds with PCIe 5.0 x16 SMD slot and an 8-layer low-signal loss PCB, both providing up to 128 GB/s theoretical bandwidth and lower dissipation factor, optimizing the performance of your resource-heavy components.

DDR5 Memory

Multitask and render high-resolution videos with DDR5 memory architecture able to support up to 6400 MHz DIMMs and XMP 3.0, unlocking the potential of your memory and enhancing system performance. The SMD slot offers high-frequency performance, anti-plate bending, and Iron Claw RAM clips. Additionally, the Z690 AORUS MASTER uses a shielded memory routing design to protect the system from external interference.

Thermal Design

Reduce thermal buildup with integrated thermal solution consisting of an enlarged heatsink, Direct-Touch Heatpipe II, M.2 Thermal Guard III, Fins-Array III with NanoCarbon Coating, 9 W/mK Thermal Pad, and 2x Copper PCB. Smart Fan 6 application can leverage seven internal temperature sensors and ten PWM/DC fan headers to ensure your system remains cool while allowing you to customize your cooling parameters.

Network Connectivity

Connect to your network with Marvell AQuantia 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, giving you network speeds up to ten times faster than traditional GbE LAN. Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) supports a dedicated 6 GHz band for smooth wireless performance and less interference. Bluetooth 5.2 allows you to use wireless peripherals such as controllers and headphones from longer distances, allowing you to experience true tether-free gaming.


Immerse yourself into your favorite media with Realtek 7.1-channel audio accompanied by the ESS Sabre DAC chip, producing high-quality frequencies. Audiophile grade capacitors are constructed from WIMA and Nichicon Fine Gold for power sound. TXC OSCILLATOR digital-analog converter offers intense sound while offering high resistance to corrosion and oxidation. DTS:X² Ultra creates an authentic 3D audio experience over headphones and speakers. The Z690 AOURS MASTER is Hi-Res Audio certified, ensuring this motherboard can produce frequencies up to 40 kHz.


From fine-tuning your performance to aesthetics, the Z690 AORUS MASTER allows you to adjust settings with the UEFI BIOS and Easy Tune, each using simple interfaces suitable for newcomers and seasoned builders. MultiKey allows you to reconfigure a button to various settings such as RGB switch, Direct-to-BIOS, and Safe Mode boot. Fully customize your system's appearance with integrated RGB Fusion 2.0 software, allowing you to leverage a wide range of colors and effects for a style that is unique and personal.


GIGABYTE integrated Q-Flash functionality allows you to upgrade the motherboard BIOS without installing the CPU, memory, and graphics card, giving you a simple upgrade solution if needed. Solid-pin connectors provide larger contact areas that improves electrical conductivity for greater resilience.
