The Gigabyte Z490 Vision D is an ATX motherboard for 10th Gen Intel Core processors (code named Comet Lake). It offers a full range of features, a good mix of I/O ports, and solid build quality.

In terms of connectivity, this board is well rounded. It has HDMI 1.4b video output for use with the Intel graphics built into the CPU - a great backup option, in case the dedicated video card in a system isn't working. It also has both analog and digital audio outputs, 1Gb and 2.5Gb Ethernet, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, two USB 2.0 ports, four USB 3.2 Gen 1, and two USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports are also present, using Type C connectors which can double as additional USB 3.2 ports, and a DisplayPort input is provided as well to allow video pass-through to one of the Thunderbolt ports.

Internally it has four DDR4 slots for memory, allowing up to 128GB of 2933MHz RAM. Drive connectivity includes six SATA III ports plus three M.2 slots, though use of certain M.2 slots prevents using some of the SATA ports. For expansion cards, there are four total PCI-Express slots in varying sizes. SLI and Crossfire are supported as well, though when two video cards are installed the PCI-E slots they are in run at x8 speed rather than x16.

Note: When the top M.2 slot is populated, it will disable SATA port 0. When the middle M.2 slot is populated, it will disable SATA ports 4-5. When the bottom M.2 slot is populated, it will reduce bandwidth to the bottom PCIe slot to x2

William George (Product Development) Says:
It is worth noting that the default behavior of the BIOS on this motherboard does not automatically follow Intel's CPU power limit guidelines, so when building systems with this board we manually set those power limits based on Intel's specs for whatever processor is being used.
