Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS PRIME series. The PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize productivity.
ASUS Intelligent Control makes your PC smart. Along with taking care of complex tuning and dynamically optimizing essential aspects of your system, it offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as more comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
All-Around Energy Efficiency
The Power Saving function contains several settings can easily optimize power consumption and maximize energy savings. You can enable a CPU power limit, darken Aura lighting, and set the fan profile to a power saving mode. You can also toggle the Power Saver plan that is built into Microsoft Windows.
Flexible Air- and Liquid-Cooling Controls
ASUS Fan Xpert 4 software provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Thereâ€™s also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans, water pumps and AIO coolers can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.
Precise Digital Power Control
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.
PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 motherboard is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.
An M.2 heatsink takes care of the two M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers.
VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pads
The extensive surface area of the massive heatsinks cover the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation. Together with specially engineered thermal pads, they improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
Cooler by Design
PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 software or via the UEFI BIOS.
Multiple Temperature Sources
Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 4 allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
4-Pin PWM/DC Fan
Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.
The PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 motherboard is built to handle the high core counts and bandwidth demands of 13th Gen IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢ Processors. ASUS Z790 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible data transfer options.
Robust Power Design
Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of Intel processors. The PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.
DDR4 5333 (OC)
Improvements to trace routing design provide the latest Intel processors with enhanced access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce path distance, and it adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Three M.2 Slots (up to 64 Gbps)
PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 offers a total of three M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIeÂ® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
*Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.
PCIeÂ® 5.0 Slot
PCIe 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express.
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-CÂ®
A batch of USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including the rear USB Type-C connector with ultrafast USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 for transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.
Thunderboltâ„¢ 4 (USB4Â® compliant)
PRIME Z790-P WIFI D4 motherboard features USB4Â® support via a Thunderboltâ„¢ (USB4Â®) header. With an ASUS add-on card*, PRIME motherboards can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable, while providing power to fast-charge device. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to dual displays with 4K resolution.
IntelÂ® WiFi 6
The IntelÂ® WiFi 6 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6.
Realtek 2.5 Gb Ethernet
Realtek 2.5 Gb Ethernet reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfers.
