ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-F GAMING WIFI Motherboard
ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-F GAMING WIFI Motherboard Overview
The ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming WiFi offers premium-grade power delivery and cooling to unleash the full force of 12th Gen or 13th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. Meanwhile, cutting-edge performance arrives courtesy of a PCIe® 5.0 expansion slot and DDR5 memory support. Plus, ASUS-exclusive intelligent controls help optimize PC settings, while onboard WiFi 6E brings lightning-fast data transfers to an endless variety of scenarios. On top of all that, DIY-friendly innovations help simplify the PC building process to get to you up and running smoothly.
16+1 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into a single package, delivering power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors can take full advantage of.
ALLOY CHOKES AND DURABLE CAPACITORS:
High-end chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, enabling performance that exceeds industry standards
8+8 PIN PROCOOL II POWER CONNECTOR:
ASUS ProCool II connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure full contact with power supply cable wiring. A metal sheath improves heat dissipation, and low electrical impedance helps prevent hotspots and bolsters reliability.
DIGI+ POWER CONTROL:
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultrasmooth and clean power delivery to the CPU.
Multi-layered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the voltage regulators to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom.
DDR5 Overclocking Strength – ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile:
Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. For DDR5, the Strix Z690 lineup breaks performance limits by providing a stacked suite of overclocking parameters for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC).
- A dedicated circuit on the motherboard safely circumvents DDR5 memory PMIC restrictions, allowing you to step past the default 1.1-volt limit and push frequency and timings to the max.
- Ordinarily, a restricted PMIC that has been unlocked requires the system to be fully power-cycled each time memory voltage is adjusted. ROG motherboards leverage onboard hardware and firmware to cleverly work around this irksome limitation, enabling voltage adjustments to be applied through the same soft system-reset process employed for previous generations of DDR memory.
With four strategically placed M.2 slots, ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming WiFi leverages mighty CPU and chipset bandwidth to deliver lightning-fast PCIe 4.0 data transfers, Intel NVM Express® RAID, and high-capacity drive options that blaze past traditional SATA-based SSDs.
UNDENIABLY ROG STRIX:
A specially illuminated acrylic display on the I/O cover gives the illusion that the circuit board is visible beneath an RGB ROG logo. Meanwhile, touches of brushed metal throughout the motherboard, plus the stitched fabric of the ROG Strix Cable organizer, deliver a variety of carefully crafted surface textures. Last but not least, a special lighting pattern built into the motherboard finishes off a colorful tour of the ROG worldview.
The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as more comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
