GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS XTREME and MASTER Motherboards Achieve DDR5-8000, Z790 AORUS TACHYON Hits XMP DDR5-8333 and DDR5-9300 O.C. with Air Cooling


GIGABYTE has announced that its premium Z790 motherboards for 13th Gen Intel Core processors continue to push the envelope of memory performance, with one such model, the Z790 AORUS TACHYON, achieving XMP DDR5-8333 and DDR5-9300 O.C. This level of performance was achieved with only air cooling, according to a press release from the manufacturer. GIGABYTE has also advertised how its Z790 AORUS XTREME (listed as “coming soon” on its Z790 landing page) and Z790 AORUS MASTER motherboards can hit XMP DDR5-8000, a speed that the company has described as “phenomenal.”


From a GIGABYTE press release:

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards, and hardware solutions, today announced that Z790 AORUS TACHYON pushes the envelope of memory performance to XMP DDR5-8333 and DDR5-9300 O.C. with air cooling. On top of that, the phenomenal performance of XMP DDR5-8000 on Z790 AORUS XTREME and Z790 AORUS MASTER motherboards proves the enhancements from hardware to firmware including top-quality components, new generation Shielded Memory Routing design, and High Bandwidth of BIOS setting greatly improve memory stability and performance.

Enhanced by the new generation Shielded Memory Routing and low signal-loss PCB design, GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS TACHYON, Z790 AORUS XTREME, and Z790 AORUS MASTER can effectively reduce the internal and external signal loss or interference, which ensures blasting-fast DDR5 memory speed. In addition, the abundant BIOS setting of DDR5 Memory Upgrade and XMP 3.0 User Profile lead to the breakthrough performance of memories.

Meanwhile, GIGABYTE’s exclusive High Bandwidth feature can further raise total bandwidth on XMP memories to provide superior memory performance without changing the memory clock. Enhanced with top-quality materials, exclusive hardware design and BIOS settings, GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS XTREME and Z790 AORUS MASTER unleash a new level of performance with XMP DDR5-8000, while Z790 AORUS TACHYON achieves the breakthrough performance of XMP DDR5-8333 and DDR5-9300 O.C. by air cooling with its exclusive O.C. kit. This demonstrates the superior quality and ultimate performance of GIGABYTE motherboards.
