Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4400MHz and Beyond*

GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4400MHz 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 GIGABYTE motherboard.

Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.
2-Way CrossFire™ Multi-Graphics

Multi-graphics configuration offers better graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.

PCIe 4.0* Hardware Design
For most of prosumers and gamers, high bandwidth storage and high performance graphics card are critical for their applications. To support most cutting edge devices, this motherboard uses the groundbreaking PCIe 4.0 grade hardware design.
* Product uses PCIe 4.0 grade material, actual support varies by hardware configuration.
CONNECTIVITY
Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Networking

Intel® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.

The Industry’s Leading LAN Static-Electricity & Surge Protection
GIGABYTE motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs. This helps to better protect the motherboard and its components against potential damage caused by static electricity. GIGABYTE motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.

Native Intel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Controller

Intel’s native USB 3.2 Gen2 host controller provides USB 3.2 Gen2 ports with speeds up to 10Gbps. Available over the USB Type-A connector, the USB 3.2 Gen2 is much improved with twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backwards compatibility with USB2.0 and USB 3.2 Gen1.

M.2 Thermal Guard
GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
Thermal Throttling As Temperature Rises

USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C™:
The World’s Next Universal Connector

The USB Type-C™ is a new reversible connector that is loaded with useful features such as USB 3.2 Gen2 support and faster charging capabilities. Powered by the Intel® controller, this little port is the better USB Type-C™.

Pre-Installed I/O Shield
    1. With an integrated I/O shield, building an GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier.

COOLING
Smart Fan 5

With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.

Fan / Water Pump Connectors
Internal Temperature Sensors
Different models have different number of fan pin headers and temperature sensors. Smart Fan 5 function may vary by model.
Temperature Sensors

Hybrid Fan Headers

■ 4 Fan / Water Pump Connectors

LIGHTING
RGB FUSION 2.0
With Z490M Gaming X Motherboard , RGB Fusion 2.0 is even better with Addressable LEDs.* RGB Fusion 2.0 offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 on Z490 Series Motherboards are now upgraded with Addressable LED support. With external Addressable LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.

With Z490M Gaming X Motherboard will support either 5v or 12v Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion 2.0 with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.

* Addressable LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Addressable LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.

RGB Fusion 2.0 Software
RGB Fusion APP
With an integrated intuitive user interface, the RGB Fusion 2.0 provides you a better solution for customizing the lighting effects across all supported devices. From motherboards, graphics cards to the peripheral products, you can personalize your gaming rig with your own style and show off your build by sharing the profiles. In addition, the new gaming mode makes the lighting effects interactive with selected games to bring you the most immersive gaming experience.

AUDIO
High-End Audio Capacitors
GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers.
Audio Noise Guard
GIGABYTE motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level.
ULTRA DURABLE
GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking Bracket

Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor
Industry Leading Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor
The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.
Ultra Durable™ Memory Armor
GIGABYTE exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion/twisting and plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
Solid Pin Power Connectors
Z490 motherboards feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin + 4pin power connectors for offering stable power supply while CPU overloading.
Solid Pin Power connector advantages
  1. Larger contact area for electricity
  2. More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat
  3. Ultra durable and longer lifespan

START SULFURIZATION PROTECTION
Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.
