DURABLE, STABLE AND RELIABLE
Introducing the TUF Gaming Z490 PLUS Motherboard from ASUS. The TUF Gaming Z490-Plus distills essential elements of the latest Intel® platform and combines them with game-ready features and proven durability. Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive set of cooling options, this motherboard delivers rock-solid performance with unwavering gaming stability. When you build with a TUF Gaming motherboard, you also benefit from the TUF Gaming Alliance — an ASUS collaboration with trusted industry partners that ensures easier building, best compatibility, and complementary aesthetics from components to case.
POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS
From digital power control and an array of power stages to military-grade TUF components, TUF Gaming Z490-Plus is armed to tame the latest 10th Gen Intel® CPUs.
The onboard VRM of TUF Gaming Z490-Plus utilises 12+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors demand.
6-LAYER PCB DESIGN
Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.
Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.
The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
A custom-made low-noise fan efficiently cools the area around the VRM by up to 12°C to give you more overclocking headroom, and it can also now be turned on or off via the UEFI BIOS. To ensure longevity, the fan utilises durable bearings with an impressive 60,000-hour L10* lifespan.
The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
TUNE AND TWEAK YOUR WAY
TUF Gaming Z490-Plus features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 4 utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.
MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCES
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.
AIO WATER-COOLING SET
An integrated AiO system enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, making it perfect for custom or self-contained cooling setups.
4-PIN PWM/DC FAN
All onboard headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
DDR4 OC 4600 MHZ+
Revisions to the motherboard’s trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Dual M.2 slots support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps on the x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth, making it perfect for OS or application drives for quicker boot-up and app load times.
THUNDERBOLT 3 SUPPORT
Footage is captured at a wonderful 4K and new to the GH5S, Cinema 4K, an alternative that records at a pure 24 frames-per-second, 19:10 aspect ratio, giving you the ultimate look and feel of video that is destined for the cinema. The difference between the GH5S and other DSLR or DLSM cameras, is that at any resolution, you can record indefinitely, as long as the battery and storage are.
YOUR MOTHERBOARD, YOUR WAY
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.
