The two models are available in two different SKUs, DDR4 and DDR5. They will impress users with the full capabilities of digital power with 10+1+2 phases of VRM design. Each step holds more than 105 amps thanks to its Smart Power Stage design, enhanced temperature design Intel Killer Wi-Fi AX1690 Wi-Fi 6E, 2.5 Gbit Ethernet, and premium audio.
GIGABYTE also provides users with an affordable option Z690I AORUS ULTRA-LITE which has PCIe 3.0 and Wi-Fi 6 support.

The Z690I AORUS Ultra PLUS is equipped with Intel Killer AX1690 Wireless 6E Controller that features DCT (Double Connect technology ), can support multiple Wi-Fi radios, and performs the task of division for games and other. 

Instead of causing congestion in the spectrum caused by one connection, 2.4 5/6 GHz and 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi bands can be linked simultaneously. The more powerful 6 GHz band can be prioritized for gaming while using the 2.4 GHz band to perform another job. It also recognizes and prioritizes gaming traffic to cut lower latency for online gaming and deliver a more smooth playing or virtual reality experience. Comparatively against that of the 802.11ac 1×1 network Wi-Fi 6E DC provides seven times the speedy throughput. Alongside 2.5 Gbps Ethernet, Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS gives the most complete and versatile networking options.

To improve the overall heat dissipation capability, Z690I AORUS Ultra PLUS comes with Fins-Array II technology, 3rd generation heat pipe thermal design to ensure the most efficient performance and thermal management to maximize the performance and enhanced overclocking capabilities with the latest generation of multi-core K series of Intel Core processors. The power and ground layers utilize 2OZ copper to improve cooling up to 13degC under high-speed operating of the CPU to prevent throttling due to overheating. In addition to the thermal design of the hardware for VRM, GIGABYTE Z690 motherboards continue to incorporate Smart Fan 6 technology for a more straightforward allocation of fans and a simpler setting for fine-tuning and advanced setting mode. The new version lets users control the gaming system’s temperature to ensure calm, quiet, and high-performance balance.

Alongside the high-speed network and the advanced PCB layout, Z690I AORUS ULTRA PLUS incorporates PCIe 5.0 designs for PCB components, slots, and PCB to boost performance. With the help of SMD Memory DIMMs and metal armour and shielded Memory Routing. Users will be able to benefit from superior memory overclocking with greater robustness and more excellent stability across both DDR4and DDR5 models. Particularly for DDR5 models that feature, you can enjoy the unique DDR5 overclocking, voltage and BIOS settings that will allow users to boost the overclocking process and XMP performance quickly.

GIGABYTE Z690I ULTRA PLUS motherboard features high-speed connectivity with USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 and 3.2 Gen2. The high-quality audio using DTS:X Ultra provides the most powerful and immersive sound experience intended for gaming or entertainment. Alongside the above distinctive designs, GIGABYTE, Z690 motherboards keep the outstanding support of the digital LED lightening feature as well as the BIOS setting interface in a graphical format that provides critical information like clock speeds, memory, memory, storage devices as well as fan status settings as well as other essential details of the hardware in a more logical and user-friendly way. Additionally, Q-Flash technology lets users flash BIOS files without installing GPU, CPU, RAM or other peripherals.

If you’re looking for an affordable solution that balances budget and features, GIGABYTE also releases Z690I AORUS ULTRA-LITE, PCIe 3.0 and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility. It is available in DDR5 as well as DDR4 also and is an excellent discount for the construction of mini-systems.
