One of the first official images of GIGABYTE’s upcoming Z690 AORUS MASTER motherboard for 12th Gen Intel Core processors has leaked on social media courtesy of REHWK. The board features a beautiful design, one that incorporates a clean, sleek layout and nice touches such as a clear window near the I/O shield. Intel’s new LGA 1700 socket for Alder Lake chips can clearly be seen, as well as four DIMM slots for DDR5 memory, dual 8-pin EPS connectors, and ribbed M.2 thermal guards.
A photo of GIGABYTE’s Z690 AORUS ELITE AX DDR4 motherboard has also been leaked by VideoCardz. Featuring gray M.2 thermal guards, this motherboard will presumably not support next-generation DDR5 memory at all.
