ASUS Intel Z490 ROG STRIX Z490-G GAMING Wi-Fi Micro-ATX Motherboard
GET YOURSELF OFF TO A GREAT START
Introducing the ROG Strix Z490 G-Gaming Motherboard from ASUS. The ROG Strix Z490-G Gaming (Wi-Fi) motherboard boasts boosted power delivery, an optimised cooling design and intuitive ROG software to help you get the most out of the latest 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. And it’s not just about performance, its cyberpunk-inspired aesthetics and a mirrored stainless steel Strix nameplate give it looks to match.
POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS
Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
1.8-PIN PROCOOL II POWER CONNECTOR
The ProCool II socket is built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines and have a metal armour for improved heat dissipation. The connector's lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and improves reliability.
2. 12+2 DRMOS POWER STAGE
ROG Strix Z490-G Gaming utilises 12+2 DrMOS power stages to combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand.
Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.
INTELLIGENT AI CONTROL
Our ROG engineers developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each system.
AI Cooling automatically manages and controls motherboard connected fans, ensuring the most efficient settings depending on the current system load and temperature.
GameFirst VI optimises and organises network bandwidth, effectively reducing jitter and eliminating spike lag to ensure smooth online gameplay.
MAXIMUM STORAGE COMPATIBILITY
Two M.2 slots are available, with one supporting both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes, and the other supporting PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.
Built-in SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio. It provides a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And if you're using a gaming headset, the front panel output is driven by two op amps to preserve audio quality.
