Description

PRIME
Dressed in a professional attire, the Prime Z490 series caters to users with serious pursuits in mind who prefer to put their 10th Gen Intel processors to productive use. Prime Z490, known for its all-around hardware specs and ASUS signature features, includes a wide range of tuning options for accessible performance.

AI Overclocking

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

AI Cooling automatically manages and controls motherboard connected fans, ensuring the most efficient settings depending on the current system load and temperature.

AI Networking

GameFirst VI optimizes and organizes network bandwidth, effectively reducing jitter and eliminating spike lag to ensure smooth online gameplay.

RELIABLE POWER
Teamed Power Stages
ASUS Z490 series motherboards features a teamed-power-stage architecture that unleashes the full potential of the latest Intel® Core™ CPUs. Together with quality components, ASUS Z490 motherboard VRMs are geared for any workload and operation condition.

OPTIMIZED MEMORY
OptiMem III
Boasting proprietary memory trace layout tweaks that improve signal integrity and mitigate noise, ASUS OptiMem III is more compatible with 3600 MHz+ memory kits, allowing them to run at higher frequencies. You can opt to optimize memory for high frequency settings, or low latency settings. With higher capacity memory kits, OptiMem III enables you to run at maximum frequency, whereas other motherboards will trade off frequency for capacity. Stack ASUS Z490 motherboards with your favorite modules and maximize throughput of the new 10th Generation Intel® Core™ Comet Lake-S processor for applications that demand massive bandwidth.

LEADING CONNECTIVITY
Intel WI-FI 6 (AX201)
Onboard WiFi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast wireless-networking speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6.

Thunderbolt 3

With incredible speeds of up to 40Gbps, Thunderbolt 3 delivers up to four-times (4X) faster file transfers and twice (2X) the video bandwidth of USB 3.2.

10G Ethernet

The ASUS Z490 series features up to 10G Ethernet to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators. Enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K videos, smooth gaming and backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.

USB 3.2 Gen 2×2

The latest USB standard doubles the transfer bandwidth by opening another USB 3.2 Gen 2 lane to achieve its maximum throughput of up to 20 Gbps. In addition to blazingly fast data-transfer speeds, USB 3.2 offers easy connectivity and ultimate flexibility via USB-C ports.
