Features


Performance


Direct 6 phases digital VRM solution with 55A DrMOS
A520I AC motherboard uses a Direct 6 phases digital CPU power design which includes both digital PWM Controller and DrMOS. These 100% digital controller offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ processors.

  • Digital PWM Controller delivers appropriate voltage to the CPU.
  • Direct 6 Phases DrMOS, each power phase connects directly to the CPU. With capability to handle up to 330 Amps current in total.
  • All-solid capacitors to improve Transient response and minimize oscillation.
  • 8pin Solid Pin CPU Power Connector.


Faster and better coverage with dual band 802.11ac Wi-Fi & BT 4.2 module
The onboard 802.11ac Wi-Fi module from Intel® supports the Dual Band and up to 433 Mbps transition speed, 3x faster than 802.11n and also support BLUETOOTH 4.2.

The brand new of Ultra Durable™ Antenna supports Dual Band 802.11ax/ac 2.4GHz & 5GHz with 4dBi signal gained. It featured with better signal strength as compared to traditional antenna design and the magnetic base is the best design for signal strength direction and location.

Exclusive Realtek 8118 Gaming LAN
Realtek 8118 LAN is a high performance and friendly network chip for gaming players with automatic bandwidth allocation to ensure the highest network priority of the game or application. It can provide users the most comprehensive features and the fastest and smoothest Internet experience.


NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Connector
GIGABYTE Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential.

Cooling

Smart Fan 5
With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.


Hybrid fan pin headers
Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors—giving you absolute mastery over your PC.

  • All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.

Lighting


RGB Fusion 2.0
With A520 Motherboards, RGB Fusion 2.0 is even better with Addressable LEDs. RGB Fusion 2.0 offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC build. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 are now upgraded to improve the Addressable LED support. With external Addressable LED strips, where each LED is digitally addressable that users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.

With A520 Motherboards support the external 5V Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion 2.0 with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.

Ultra Durable

Q-Flash plus
With GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus, you don’t need to install the CPU, memory and graphics card nor enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS. Just download and save a new BIOS file (rename to gigabyte.bin) on the USB flash drive, then press the dedicated Q-Flash Plus button and you’re good to go!


Solid pin power connectors
A520 motherboards feature solid plated ATX 12V 8pin power connectors for offering stable power supply while CPU overloading.

  • Larger contact area for electricity
  • More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat
  • Ultra durable and longer lifespan
