Well-versed in style, performance, cooling, and connectivity, the DDR5 variant of the ROG Strix Z790-A exudes the same balance as its D4 brethren, but after taking a master class in memory. A robust VRM topped with stout silver heatsinks comfortably articulates power for the latest Intel® 13th Gen Core processors, while PCIe 5.0, WiFi 6E, and high-speed USB flesh out the board's fluency across a variety of disciplines. And a vast collection of tuning options and utilities derived from its ROG heritage are the icing on top.
PCIE® SLOT Q-RELEASE
A physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot's security latch with one press, greatly simplifying the process of detaching a PCIe card from the motherboard when it's time to upgrade to a new GPU or other compatible device.
Robust power delivery, breakneck DDR5 memory, speedy storage, and comprehensive cooling elevate any build with the ROG Strix Z790-A at its center.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.
Next-gen connectivity and low-latency networking are hallmarks of the ROG ecosystem, and the Strix Z790-A delivers both of them in full. Joining them is an advanced audio solution for immersive sound so you can pick out the slightest cues and nuances.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.
Low-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.
PLAY IN STYLE
Bold aesthetics and Aura Sync RGB controls let the ROG Strix Z790-A shine in every build.
UNDENIABLY ROG STRIX
The ROG Strix Z790-A boldly embraces the light, for an alternate take on build themes to its dark and brooding brother, the Strix Z790-F. Silver metallic heatsinks pop against a dark PCB backdrop and call attention to the board's high capacity for thermal management. A transparent layer on the I/O shield adds a unique touch and emphasizes the customizable RGB logo below. The whole design is tied together with ROG-centric detailing on the board, heatsinks, and I/O shield for a vibrant and futuristic outlook. Pair the Strix Z790-A with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem to create a fully-customized gaming setup that reflects your personal style.
A myriad of ROG-exclusive tools put advanced system tuning and configuration at your fingertips.
AI COOLING II
Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.
