Product Overview

Gigabyte Z590 AORUS ELITE AX is an ATX gaming motherboard based on Intel's Z590 Express chipset. Compared to the base Z590 AORUS ELITE, it adds wireless connectivity in the form of WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
The Z590 AORUS ELITE AX is designed to work with 10th- and 11th-gen Intel Core, Pentium, and Celeron processors. It supports a large selection of expansions and I/O ports, including PCIe 4.0 for the fastest SSD reads and writers. Gigabyte's Thermal Guard II thermal solution maintains the stability and durability of the SSD during such high-speed operations.
In terms of memory support, the 4x DIMMs can each take up to 32GB DDR4 3200MHz memory, with support for XMP 5000MHz modules. It also provides a USB 3.2 Gen2x2 port at the rear I/O panel.
The power supply circuit on the Z590 AORUS comes with 20+1 phases, each of them holding up to 100 amps with the DrMOS power stage design. Gigabyte's engineers also paid attention to cooling the power circuitry, with Fins-Array II heatsink and Direct-Touch Heatpipe II together to manage VRM temperatures.
To spice up your gaming rig, the Z590 AORUS ELITE AX not only features RGB FUSION 2.0 RGB lighting but also comes with headers that support addressable LED and RGB LED strips.
Alongside the ELITE AX, Gigabyte also unveiled the Z590 AORUS ELITE, ULTRA, PRO AX, MASTER, and XTREME at CES 2021.
