Gigabyte Reveals The The Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2

This looks like a great board and I look forward to trying it.

The Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 motherboard, GIGABYTE’s latest esports initiative in collaboration with close partner, G2 Esports, is out now. This esports-ready motherboard was designed and developed using feedback from esports pro kennyS and one of the highlight features is the Type C interface ESSential USB DAC.

In the heat of competition, sound fidelity is one of the most important means of locating the enemy and communicating with teammates and the Z490 AORUS ULTRA G2 motherboard is well equipped for this with Type C interface ESSential USB DAC. Through the built-in ESS SABRE HiFi ES9280C PRO high-end audio transfer chip, you’ll never settle for inconsistent audio again and this detachable DAC isn’t held back by audio loss caused by routing through a PC case.

The ESSential USB DAC is a flexible and useful solution for competitive players that often move from PC-to-PC. Speaking on how crucial good quality sound is in competitive CS:GO, kennyS said, “Sound is very important as in game sounds can signal enemy movements. Even knowing milliseconds ahead of time can determine the outcome of duels.”
