Product names of GIGABYTE's upcoming motherboard lineup based on the Intel Z890 chipset were leaked to the web in the form of marketing material. The Z890 will be Intel's first desktop motherboard chipset for the company's Core Ultra 200-series processors in the LGA1851 package. Based on the next-generation "Arrow Lake" microarchitecture, the Core Ultra 200 series processors are expected to have similar CPU core counts to the current "Raptor Lake," with a maximum of 8P+16E cores; but with increased IPC on both the P-cores and E-cores; improved efficiency from the switch to the newer Intel 3 foundry node for the Compute Tile, and the introduction of a 50 TOPS-class NPU that makes these Intel's first processors with one.

The GIGABYTE Z890 motherboard lineup covers both its gamer-focused AORUS brand, and its mainline brand. There 8 models at launch to go with the handful K/KF processor SKUs Intel will debut in 2024, which will be expanded in the future as Intel releases more processor models and other chipsets. This platform lacks DDR4 memory support, which is probably also why the lineup isn't as broad as the company's first wave of LGA1700 motherboards. It begins with the AORUS Xtreme AI TOP as the flagship product, followed by the AORUS Master AI TOP; and a product labelled simply the "Z890 AI TOP." These are followed by the AORUS Master (though without the AI TOP extension); the AORUS Pro Ice, and a trio of AORUS Elite products differentiated by connectivity features such as Wi-Fi. We're not entirely sure what the AI TOP brand extensions mean at this point, AI acceleration is a function of the processor.
I wonder when these new motherboards will appear.

    I wondered for a moment if that's meant to be AI or A1, but yeah, must be AI because of the Arrow Lake having a neural processing unit. Be interesting to see how it performs in the wild.
