description for ASUS PRIME Z690-A
ASUS Prime series motherboards are expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of 12th Generation Intel processors. Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, Prime Z690-A provides users and PC DIY builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features. ASUS Prime Z690-A offers a sleek, futuristic-looking build with space-shuttle-inspired design elements, a metallic nameplate and PCB cover.
  • Intel LGA 1700 socket: ready for 12th Gen Intel processors
  • Enhanced power solution: 16+1 DrMOS, ProCool sockets, alloy chokes and durable capacitors for stable power delivery
  • AI Overclocking: optimizes performance based on CPU and cooler loads to achieve results that are extremely close to manual tuning by experts
  • AI Cooling: manages and controls all motherboard fans, automatically optimizing settings based on current system load and temperature
  • Two-Way AI Noise-Cancelation: reduces background noise from the microphone and audio output for crystal-clear communication in games or video conferences
  • Comprehensive cooling: large VRM heatsinks, M.2 heatsinks, M.2 backplate with Q-Latch, hybrid fan headers and Fan Xpert 4
  • Next-gen connectivity: DDR5 memory, PCIe 5.0, Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C, front panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, and Thunderbolt 4 header support
  • 5-Way Optimization
    ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. Along with taking care of complex tuning and dynamically optimizing essential aspects of your system, it provides overclocking profiles that are tailored for your rig.
  • ASUS AI Overclocking
    ASUS AI Overclocking is an intelligent utility that helps you get the most out of your build by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings.
  • AI Cooling
    ASUS AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.
  • VRM heatsink and thermal pads
    The two VRM heatsinks on Prime Z690-A are significantly larger than those found on earlier Z590 motherboards. Together with the thermal pads, they improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
  • Robust power design
    Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of 12th Generation Intel processors. Prime Z690-A is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.
  • DDR5 performance enhancement
    Prime Z690-A enhances DDR5 performance by providing overclocking options for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC).
  • PCIe 5.0 slot
    The 12th Gen 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 PCI Express.
  • Thunderbolt 4 support
    Prime Z690-A features Thunderbolt 4 support via an on-board header. With the latest Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card, it can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to an 8K resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.
  • Aura Sync: outshine the competition
    A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers - and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
