Premium Power Delivery16+1+1 power stages are each rated to handle up to 60 amperes, combining high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into a single package to deliver power, efficiency and stable performance for all compatible Intel processors.
Six-Layer PCB DesignThe multi-layered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the voltage regulators to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom.
8+8 PIN ProCool Power ConnectorsCompared to traditional power inputs, ASUS ProCool connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure full contact with PSU power cables. The resulting lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and connector failure.
TUF ComponentsCertified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-solid power to the CPU, improving system stability.
Digi+ VRMThe integrated Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, optimized for ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.
AI Cooling II
Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. An ASUS-exclusive algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then it monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.
Unleash DDR5 with AEMP II
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature that allows users to achieve supreme memory performance and compatibility with optimized clock speeds, even when they're using PMIC-restricted memory modules that do not provide an XMP or EXPO profile. Developed through a flexible training method, AEMP II simplifies the process of fine-tuning memory settings beyond the baseline configuration, all while ensuring system stability. This applies whether you are maximizing the potential of an entry-level module or preparing a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.
Now, AEMP II offers even more flexibility. With the latest firmware update, AEMP II allows users to optimize the performance of a four-DIMM DDR5 RAM configuration, even with a mixture of different brands and dies. Increasing the memory capacity of your build by adding additional DIMMs has never been easier — with AEMP II, you can get optimized memory performance even when all four memory modules are not an exact match, provided that all four DIMMs have the same capacity.
USB 20Gbps (Type-C®)Extensive USB support ensures connections to a wide array of external devices. This TUF GAMING motherboard includes a USB Type-C port on the rear I/O panel that delivers transfer speeds of up to 20 Gbps.
PCIe 5.0The latest Intel processors bring PCIe 5.0 support to the market. 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 backward compatibility with previous versions of the PCIe bus.
Front USB 20Gbps (Type-C®)The TUF GAMING Z790-PRO WIFI features a USB 20Gbps Type-C® front panel connector for speedy data transfers up to 20 Gbps. And it offers Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 technology to provide up to 30 watts of quick charging. With USB Wattage Watcher, users can glance at their device's charging wattage in real time and check on their device’s Fast-Charging status.
Thunderbolt™(USB4®) SupportThe TUF GAMING Z790 series features Thunderbolt 4 support via an on-board header. With an Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card*, this motherboard can also enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multiscreen connection and supports up to an 8K-resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.
Cooler by Design
The TUF GAMING Z790-PRO WIFI is armed with an enlarged VRM heatsink, while three M.2 slots and the PCH feature heatsinks that provide the perfect balance of mass and surface area for heat dissipation.
Enlarged VRM HeatsinkThe extensive surface area of this heatsink covers the VRMs and chokes to improve thermal performance.
Superb PCH HeatsinkAn expanded surface area for the chipset cooler maximizes system performance and heat dissipation.
Optimized M.2 Heatsink DesignThree of the four M.2 slots have dedicated heatsinks to help keep M.2 SSDs at optimal operating temperatures and ensure consistent performance and reliability.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band. It delivers ultrafast wireless networking speeds and improved capacity, as well as better performance in dense wireless environments.*
*WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi.
ASUS WiFi Q-Antenna
Dual transceivers support the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands to enable faster throughput, with directional sensitivity to improve signal quality and cover greater distances.
Disclaimer: The availability of WiFi 7 160 GHz and 320 GHz varies according to regional regulations.
Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
This powerful ASUS-exclusive utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone* and incoming audio while preserving voices. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are muffled so you can hear and be heard with excellent clarity while gaming or during calls.
*An audio splitter (3.5 mm audio jack Y-cable) is necessary when using a 3.5 mm headset.
Outshine the Competition
A well-tuned system deserves a matching aesthetic. The TUF GAMING Z790 series features edge lighting to enhance its rugged look, and ASUS Aura offers full RGB control with presets for built-in LEDs and third-party strips. It can all sync with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-compatible hardware.
