Designed for 9th generation Socket 1151 Intel® Core® processors with dual M.2 and U.2 ports, front panel USB 3.1 Gen2, Dual Intel® Gigabit LAN, support for DDR4, Thunderbolt 3 via add-on card, Intel® VROC and Intel® Optane™ Memory compatibility 5-Way Optimization featuring Auto-Tuning and FanXpert 4 delivers automatic overclocking profiles for maximum OC performance while headers for external fan controls and watercooling provide dynamic system cooling Patent-pending SafeSlot features an injection molding process that integrates metal framing for stronger, firmly anchored PCIe slots built for heavyweight GPUs, ideal for supporting 4-Way NVIDIA®SLI® or AMD® CrossfireX™ 8-channel HD audio enhanced by ASUS exclusive Realtek S1220A featuring Crystal Sound 3, DTS Headphone:X and driven by Japanese capacitors for warm, immersive sound AURA Sync RGB lighting via 4-Pin RGB header features the ability to synchronize colors and effects across an ever-expanding ecosystem of AURA Sync enabled products Features Multi-GPU support WS Z390 PRO fits up to four dual-slot graphics cards and supports both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD CrossFireX™ for multi-GPU setups that harness the full power of the latest graphics technologies, delivering the best performance for design, modeling, medical research, and processing-intensive simulation and rendering applications. 5-way Optimization Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result thats well-tuned from the get-go. Cooler by design WS Z390 PRO features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert 4 you can even map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU and CPU-intensive tasks. SafeSlot SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points. Ultrafast connectivity With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports, youll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps. Also featuring M.2 which supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. Its the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data. Optimem II Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, weve employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling.
