Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5000MHz and Beyond*
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5000MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS motherboard.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.
Memory Layout - Daisy Chain Design
With the optimized daisy-chain routing, the Z590 AORUS motherboard provides a proven speed of up to DDR4-5000+ MHz with high-density Memory module*. Optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, providing professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.
*Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.
Single 32GB Support
The maximum memory capacity on the Z590 motherboard is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Therefore with populated 2 DIMM per channel on both channel, total memory capacity is 128GB, which was only available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.
