As for Fins-Array II, Direct-Touch Heatpipe II and 7.5 W/mK LAIRD thermal conductivity pad alongside G2 Esports optimizations, we bring you an improved efficacy stabled user experience. In addition to ESSential USB DAC's vocal cohesion and immersive sound, it makes the Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 Motherboard a must have for every pro player, even more so the best pick for any gamer at home assembling their own gaming PC.
GIGABYTE engineer's kept close in communication and collaboration with the G2 staff. Tested by multiple samurais using the Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 Motherboard assembled device, after many discussions and adjustments, the making of Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 motherboard has been brought to life with guarantees by the professional gaming team! All the samurais gave positive feedback regarding Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2's low temperature and stability that the Direct 12 Phases Digital Power Design and Tantalum Capacitor array, Fins-Array, advanced thermal and M.2 thermal offers.

Meanwhile, the latest memory routing and anti-interference design reaching DDR4 XMP 5000 high performance left G2 Esports in awe.

While using PCIe 4.0 design, it undoubtedly lets the Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 sit among other high quality AORUS motherboards and bring both pro players and gamers the ultimate experience of a top-quality motherboard product tailor made for professional teams.

What's worth mentioning is G2 Esports specifically emphasized the importance of audio. They hoped for GIGABYTE AORUS to improve the audio on motherboards, in particular for competitive gaming the most common front audio panel, which is one of the most important areas they were focused on. Because when you are in a competition and there is unnecessary noise disrupting or unclear reception, it can easily cause the team to be out of sync resulting in mistakes. Due to this, GIGABYTE AORUS ULTRA G2 particularly comes with a Type C interface ESSential USD DAC, through the built-in ESS SABRE HiFi ES9280C PRO high-end audio transfer chip. This lets G2 Esports pro players the freedom to not settle for the audio loss caused by routing inside the case, all they need to do is connect their headset to the ESSential USB DAC to immediately enjoy the USB DAC to 3.5 mm audio output. The ESSential USB DAC can also support the USB Type C interface on laptops, Android cellphones, and pad…etc. devices, making it even more flexible and useful. Addition to the motherboard adopted ALC1220-VB audio codec paired with WIMA FKP2 recording studio level capacitor provides the best audio. Doesn't matter if you are a pro gamer from G2 Esports connecting the headset to ESSential USB DAC or using the rear I/O panel can provide you the same audio level of a recording studio, giving you an immersive audio experience.

"Truly happy to work with a top gaming organization G2 Esports again. Together insisting on the core value of professionalism, hand in hand striving with the idea to bring innovation into Esports," said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. Jackson also said "Continuing our previous success, GIGABYTE and G2 Esports once again launches the Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 Motherboard.

Is this REALLY the best motherboard for any gamer at home building their own or is that just copy paste marketing?

Cause the way it's written seems like TPU agrees it is indeed the best motherboard choice. But Im pretty sure there hasn't been a review of any of the Z490 Gigabyte boards... just leaves a bad taste in my mouth

So much Hyperbole and unnecessary descriptive terms.
Can marketing ever release something solely based on facts?

"bringing you the 10th gen Intel Core i9-10900K excellent high-class processor."
It might be worth paying up to $150 for this if the Processor is included. ;)

It's a press release as noted at the very first of the post, not something TPU has written.

That's fine and all I just think those little tidbits should be left out. Especially if they're not based on proven tests and are just unbased marketing hype.

When I read something like this I expect TPU to have published factual information and not marketing opinions of corporations that TPU themselves wouldn't stand by. If they haven't even used the product how could anyone leave that in there? That it's the absolute best at this certain thing even though we've never seen it do said certain thing. Are they not allowed to post it if they edit it or something?

They likely aren't. As it's a press release direct from Gigabyte.

For a consumer product, and at a time where (beside the included usb c dac) what this motherboard do, lots of motherboard on the market can do, there's is no really a point. Purely technical communication does exist, but it's only used when the specifications of a product give it a clear advantage over the competition. Now that the cpu does nearly everything, the motherboard market is too standardized (same intel nic, same intel wifi 6, same realtek 1220) to not try and play on the brand image.

Beside, that motherboard is just a special edition of the regular aorus ultra, so there's definitely an emotional aspect involved. If you are not a fan of the G2 esport club, then this product wasn't meant for you. Just get the regular Ultra.

Visually it is a beautiful model. That they had to add a USB audio decoder for HI RES is normal, but I did not find information about which model it is, only the manufacturer is mentioned. The 96Kh 24 bit decoder is the start of HI RES products and doesn't sound as good as 192kh at 32 bit, It looks nice and you can connect it to an external device with a USB output, which I really like. With us, AORUS Ultra is offered for at least € 349 and Master for € 400, which is not a small amount. The change looks nice.
