Gigabyte has apparently released a second revision of its Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming motherboard. Dubbed the Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0, the company’s latest motherboard is said to come with a major improvements in its VRMs. Besides that, new components to aid cooling on the motherboard were also added.
Despite this, the overall look of the Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0 motherboard is pretty much identical to its predecessor. It still features an all black PCB along with LED-lit components, albeit slightly less on the new motherboard. For those who may not be aware, the Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0 motherboard is equipped with the Intel LGA1151 socket, which means it’s compatible with Coffee Lake CPUs.
Those aside, let’s look at the changes that Gigabyte has bestowed onto the Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0. As mentioned earlier, the company did improve the VRMs on this motherboard. To be more specific, the older Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming came with a 7-phase CPU VRM; the revised mainboard now features an 11-phase VRM setup. This will, of course, improve the motherboard’s overclocking capabilities.
Another new addition that comes with the Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0 is that Gigabyte now provides users with one free M.2 SSD heatsink as well. Sources claim that the Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0 may come with a price tag of around US$170 (about RM660). Unfortunately, it’s not known whether Gigabyte will be making this motherboard available in Malaysia anytime soon.
