Press Release

GIGABYTE Technology, one of the top global manufacturers of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware solutions, announces today Z690 AORUS TACHYON motherboard with the latest 12th generation Intel Core i9 12900K processor and LN2 liquid nitrogen heat dissipation set the world-leading overclocking records of DDR5 -10022, which verified by HWBOT. GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS TACHYON motherboard designed by world-famous overclocker equips with plenty functions exclusively for extreme overclockers, which promise overclockers higher scores with easier operation, establishing GIGABYTE’s leading role in overclocking on the Z690 motherboards.

This DDR5 world record set by GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS TACHYON has been validated by HWBOT – the world famous overclocking records verification website, which indicates that overclocker HiCookie has set the leading record at 5011MHz(DDR5-10022)using single DDR5 AORUS RGB memory stick with core i9 12900K on his self-designed Z690 AORUS TACHYON motherboard in the DDR5 memory overclocking competition.

Z690 AORUS TACHYON proves GIGABYTE’s strong R&D strength by the overclocking world records of DDR5-10022 it created without considerable change on memory timings. We will definitely use Z690 AORUS TACHYON to create better overclocking performance, and can’t wait to see that overclockers around the world use this motherboard to break more world records!

GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS TACHYON is designed by well-known overclockers exclusively for overclocking demands with the consistency from previous generation as well as GIGABYTE’s widely recognized endurance and stability, Z690 AORUS TACHYON adopts 15+1+2 direct phases power supply, which each of them can hold up to 105 amps with its Smart Power Stage design to provide comprehensive power management. The VRM area implements a full tantalum capacitor matrix with better transient response and less mechanical interference, which can improve the stability of power supply and overclocking. Furthermore, the latest Reactive Armor solution uses an integrated one-piece metal heat sink to provide larger heat dissipation range. The Shielded Memory Routing, SMD memory DIMMs, and comprehensive DDR5 memory overclocking BIOS setting enhance overclocking stability as well. Meanwhile, the built-in overclocking kit design on the motherboard provides shortcut keys, toggle switches and voltage detection functions that many overclockers use during overclocking adjustments. This kit allows overclockers to adjust settings more conveniently through these shortcut functions, easily break the limit, and achieve better overclocking results.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
