UNLEASH MAXIMUM PERFORMANCEWith an industry-leading teamed power stage VRM design, a new daisy-chain signaling topology for better DDR4 RAM overclocking, ASUS OptiMem technology, and AI Overclocking to intelligently boost the performance of Intel® 10th Gen Core™ processors, ASUS motherboards provide the rock-solid foundation you need to harness the full potential of the components in your build for top-tier gaming.
ROBUST POWER DESIGN
Extremely reliable power, digitally controlled.Digital power control and an array of teamed power stages with ProCool II connectors, high-quality alloy chokes, and durable capacitors provide reliable power when pushing CPU performance to the limit.
Record-breaking performance with ASUS OptiMem technology.ASUS OptiMem technology proprietary trace layout allows memory kits to operate at higher frequencies
Overclocking doesn't have to involve frequent reboots or complex calculations!ASUS AI Overclocking can lend you a helping hand in pushing your CPU to its limits. Its proprietary algorithm carefully grades the quality of your CPU's silicon and predicts its optimal clock speed and voltage settings in a given system. Dedicated control hardware and software keep an eye on temperature, fan speeds, and power draw to ensure there's enough cooling power when the system is under load.
COMPREHENSIVE COOLINGMaintaining system stability is paramount under high load. ASUS Z490 motherboards employ large VRM and chipset heatsinks that effectively dissipate heat for reliable sustained performance. New AI Cooling technology balances thermals and acoustics by automatically reducing fan speeds under steady-state loads to minimize noise levels while maintaining component temperatures.
ENHANCED HEATSINKAn array of enhanced cooling solutions, including newly designed VRM heatsinks with heatpipes, effective passive PCH heatsinks, and dedicated M.2 heatsinks ensure ASUS Z490 series motherboards deliver efficient, stable operation even when pushed to the limit.
AI COOLINGAI Cooling is an all-new system that can reduce system fan noise by up to 37% under sustained loads. AI Cooling works in tandem with our industry-leading Q-Fan intelligence and kicks in when the CPU is operating under a steady load. It slows the fan while maintaining a consistent CPU temperature, ensuring that your cooling system isn't making any more noise than necessary to keep temperatures low.
FASTEST CONNECTIVITYWi-Fi 6 support from Intel AX201 adapters, abundant USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 ports, and onboard Thunderbolt™ 3 headers ensure you can expand your system as needed and enjoy exceptionally smooth online and LAN play.
Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)The latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard delivers high-efficiency wireless connectivity for better gaming performance on compatible networks. It also offers Bluetooth 5.1 for connections that are up to 2X faster and 4X farther-reaching than before.
INTEL 2.5G ETHERNETOnboard Intel 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost. Up to a 2.5X performance improvement over standard Ethernet connections gives you faster file transfers, the lowest-latency gaming, and smoother high-res video streaming.
