Dual PCIe 3.0 M.2
Two 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.
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 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, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.
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.
Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio.
Dual OP amplifiers
With two op-amps onboard you're able to pump exceptional audio to your favorite cans, with 32-600-headphone impedance for great flexibility.
Premium Nichicon audio capacitors
Fine-quality Japanese-made components that produce a warmer, natural sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.
Play your own Style
The cyberpunk-inspired aesthetics are accentuated by the bold slashes and cybertext. Together with the most diverse ROG ecosystem, Pair your ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming with other ROG products to customize a gaming rig that reflects your personal style.
Undeniably ROG STRIX
Aesthetically, ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming keeps it low key, with black and grey finishes complemented by cybertext markings across the Triple-decker Heatsink.
Pre-Mounted I/O Shield
ROG's patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status, and any problem with the CPU, memory, graphics card or boot device for quick diagnosis.
The reinforced ASUS SafeSlot provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance.
BIOS FlashBack is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.
ROG Gives you More
ROG exclusive software utilities deliver intuitive audio tuning and gaming enhancements so you can configure your gaming build the way you want.
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 that's well-tuned from the get-go.
The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking settings. We have upgraded this tool to provide AI Overclocking prediction values for users who want more insight when experimenting with different settings.
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode - a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
Fan Xpert 4
Enjoy comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum - keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
