Starting with the top echelon, we have the Gigabyte AORUS Z690 motherboards which will target the enthusiast, premium, and high-end segments. The lineup includes the AORUS Xtreme and the AORUS Xtreme WB, the AORUS Master, and the AORUS Tachyon (aimed at overclockers). The Z690 lineup then heads into the more mainstream category with products such as the AORUS ELITE, PRO & Ultra series. The AERO lineup has the AERO G and AERO D variants while the Gaming lineup has a singular 'X' variant. Gigabyte's standard lineup comes in three Z690 UD variants & a singular mATX option.

The AORUS Z690 Elite, Pro & Ultra motherboards along with AERO G, Gaming X, and UD series will also come in DDR4-only flavors. Do note how the higher-end lineup doesn't focus on DDR4 options at all which means that premium motherboards are only limited to DDR5 memory. We do know that Intel's Alder Lake-S CPU lineup is compliant with both DDR4 and DDR5 memory. The latter won't be as cheap so it might be sensible to include DDR4 support on the more mainstream and entry-level models.

ASUS's Z690 motherboard lineup also leaked out a few days back which you can see here. Motherboards manufacturers are expected to unveil their new Z690 products by the end of October 2021 with a launch expected in November 2021 alongside the 12th Gen Desktop CPUs.
