From the manufacturer
PRIME Z790-A WIFI
ASUS Prime series motherboards are expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of 13th Gen Intel Core Processors. Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, PRIME Z790-A WIFI provides users and PC DIY builders with a range of performance optimizations via intuitive software and firmware features.
AI Cooling ll
AI Cooling II balances 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 it monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.
Three M.2 heatsinks cover four M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers.
Removable captive screws reduce risk of drops or loss during heatsink removal.
VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pads
The extensive surface area of the massive heatsinks cover the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation. Together with specially engineered 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 Intel processors. The PRIME Z790-A WIFI is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.
1. ProCool Connectors
Proprietary connectors augment the motherboard's link to the PSU with 8+8 pin connectors that pass 12 volts of power directly to the processors. Each jack features solid pins that can handle more current than hollow-pin connectors.
2. 16 + 1 Teamed Power Stages
16 + 1 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into packages rated for 60 amperes each, delivering power, efficiency, stability and performance to latest Intel processors.
AEMP II for Ultimate DDR5 Performance
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP II is based on a CPU and memory module’s ability to train the memory chips on your kit, and it presents an optimized clock speed that can effortlessly unleash performance.
Built through a flexible training method, AEMP II makes it easy to not only tune the memory above baseline settings, but also maintain the stability of system operation, whether getting the most out of an entry-level module or priming a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.
Four M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)
Prime Z790-A WIFI offers a total of four M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIe 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
