Gigabyte Z490I Aorus Ultra Review – Z490 Mini-ITX!

Rating: 8.0.

Gigabyte has pushed the limits with the Mini-ITX Z490I Aorus Ultra as they are powering the LGA1200 socket with no less than eight VRM phases that are each rated at 90A. That is a mighty level of power and in addition they have constructed the output filters from an array of Surface Mounted Tantalum Polymer Capacitors. Is this the ultimate Mini-ITX Z490 motherboard?
