Dual Thunderboltâ„¢ 3 Type-C Ports

Each Thunderbolt 3 port supports DisplayPort 1.4 output and can daisy-chain to up to six devices, with 15 watts of power to fast-charge devices. ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, offering a total of up to 40 Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth, which allows numerous devices to be connected to the motherboard at once with ultrafast data transfer speeds.

*Theoretical Bandwidth


A HYPER 10G LAN card enables speeds that are up to 10 times faster than standard Gigabit Ethernet — so it’s ideal for content creators who frequently work with large files. Upload 4K video or transfer other large files quickly and with ease.

1RJ45 connector
2PCIE 3.0 x4 Interface

Fast transport speed

Onboard 2.5G Intel® Ethernet

Onboard 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, high-res video streaming and smoother lag-free gaming.

Dual M.2 slots

One M.2 slot supports SATA and PCIe® 3.0 x4 modes, and the other supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe, offering up to 32 Gbps data-transfer speeds and flexible M.2 interfaces.

AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking automatically tunes your system with onboard intelligence that monitors system vitals — such as temperatures, fan speeds and power draw — to estimate cooling and overclocking headroom and deliver optimal performance for content-creation workflows.

Faster file conversion boosts productivity

Predictive Edge

The algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system and, based on what it finds, predicts optimal settings. The software then uses these settings to automatically guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.

Real-time Adjustments

The software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute, and makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

*The real performance result will vary according to CPU capability, cooling and tuning options.

AI Cooling

With one click, AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.

CPU Temperature Detection

AI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.

Automated Optimization

Under stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.

Ongoing Monitoring

AI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.

*Fans need to be connected to the following headers for AI Cooling control: CPU_FAN / CPU_OPT / CHA_FAN / M.2_FAN / H_AMP / RAD_FAN


CreationFirst network-optimization software allows you to prioritize applications in order to allocate more bandwidth to speed up essential apps and tasks.

Adaptive Intelligence Mode

CreationFirst intelligently prioritizes bandwidth of heavy-use applications by identifying in-use applications and using foreground acceleration. This allows for smoother multi-tasking, so you can work on projects while efficiently transferring files and downloading project materials.

Creation First Mode

Creation First mode allocates more bandwidth to active content creation applications to optimize network traffic, making your content creation workflow more efficient.

ProArt Creator Hub

A user-friendly interface provides applications designed to enhance workflow through central control of all connected ProArt series products, including motherboards and displays.


The dashboard monitors the overall status of the system and selects different modes to optimize performance for current tasks.

2Fan Mode

Fan mode quickly configures your system cooling by selecting preferred fan settings.

3Task Group

Applications that are frequently used together can be arranged into groups and launched with a single click. These task groups can be set up on the WorkSmart page.

Robust Power Design

Digital power control and an array of DrMOS power stages ensure that ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G has the strength to handle powerful Intel CPUs.

112+2 Power Stages

12+2 DrMOS power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand.

2Digi+ Power Control

The ASUS Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry and ensures ultra-smooth power delivery to the CPU.

3ProCool II Power Connector

ProCool II sockets are engineered to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines, and have a metal armor for improved heat dissipation. The connector's lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and improves reliability.

4Choke & Capacitor

Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, providing a higher level of performance than the industry standard.

Multi-GPU Support

ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G features three PCIe® 3.0 x16 slots for high-powered graphics cards such as NVIDIA® Quadro®, enabling enhanced performance in professional design, modeling and simulation and rendering applications.
