CPU OC: 7314 MHz
Memory OC: 6870 MHz
+ Direct 12 Phases VRM Design
+ 100A DrMOS for each vCore phase
+ Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Matrix
+ Lower Temperature
+ Better Transient Response
Digital PWM Controller
VRM design uses Intersil ISL69269 PWM controller that directly drives 12 phase for the highest efficiency.
Each vcore VRM phase uses 100A Vishay SiC840 DrMOS for maximum current capacity under extreme overclocking.
Tantalum Capacitor Matrix
VRM design uses 100% full tantalum polymer capacitors for better transient response and less mechanical interference with extreme overclocking cooling device.
Dual CPU Power Connectors
Dual 8 pin CPU power connectors with metal shielding provide maximal current input to processor.
Z590 AORUS TACHYON uses direct 12 phases VRM design with the highest 100A DrMOS and full tantalum polymer capacitors around VRM area, to maximize power efficiency and transient response, and eliminate voltage ripple during extreme high frequency overclocking.
Tantalum Polymer Capacitor Matrix
By using 100% tantalum polymer capacitors design, it's easier for professional overclockers to insulate VRM area and use LN2 pot to cool down CPU without mechanical interference.
With 2-DIMM daisy chain memory trace layout, Z590 AORUS TACHYON can achieve the shortest memory DIMM distance between CPU, therefore reach the highest memory clock and the lowest latency.
Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.
ntel 2.5GbE LAN Onboard
2X Faster than ever
Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least two times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking. It’s perfectly suit for gamers and streamer with ultimate and smooth online experience. It also backward compatible with Multi-Gig(10/100/1000/2500Mbps) RJ-45 ethernet.
Intel 802.11ax WIFI 6E
Intel latest Wireless solution 802.11ax WIFI 6E with new dedicated 6GHz band, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps*. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission.
Benefit of WIFI 6E
Dedicated spectrum in 6GHz band for less interference
5.5X throughput than 802.11ac 1x1*
4X better network capacity, no traffic jams especially in those dense area with lots of devices
Network efficiency increase for better user experience
WIFI 6E Advantage
Spectrum congestion is huge problem in current WIFI environment nowadays because too many devices all use existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum, and it cause unreliable connection and slower speed. WIFI 6E is extended standard to WIFI 6, and it use dedicated 6GHz band that it provides not only brand new frequency to transfer data, but also spacious spectrum for future more devices. With WIFI 6E, users can enjoy faster connection and stronger signal than before.
All new antenna supported 802.11ac 2.4GHz & 5GHz, 4dBi signal gain
2x signal strength compared to traditional antenna design
Two antenna with smart antenna function for the best WIFI signal transmitting
Multiple angle tilt and magnetic base for the best signal strength direction and location
