Intel Z490 Chipset

LGA 1200 CPU Socket

M-ATX Form Factor

Built to Take the Strain

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.


ChokesSuperior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.

ROG Smart AI Overclocking

Intelligent AI Control Our ROG engineers developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition.?

AI OverclockingTuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each system.

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

AI NetworkingGameFirst VI optimises and organises network bandwidth, effectively reducing jitter and eliminating spike lag to ensure smooth online gameplay.

Support for up to Two M.2 Drives

Maximum Storage CompatibilityTwo 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.

The Future of Home-Networking

WiFi 6 (802.11 ax) 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.

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

This is High Quality Audio

SupremeFX 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.

Audio Enhancement Options with Sonic Studio III

Sonic Studio IIISonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

Sonic Studio LinkThe new Sonic Studio Link now allows you to apply Sonic Studio effects on all playback devices. Simply press the Sonic Studio Link button to enjoy the effect on any playback devices.

Sonic Studio Virtual MixerA virtual audio device that lets streamers combine sound output and output from different apps. This allows you to mix your voice and video game audio within streaming software. A variety of adjustment and monitoring tools provide a high level of digital control.
