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.

COOLING

PRIME Z790-A WIFI motherboard is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

M.2 Heatsinks

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.

PERFORMANCE

The PRIME Z790-A WIFI motherboard is built to handle the high core counts and bandwidth demands of 13th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors. ASUS Z790 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible data transfer options.<!–

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.

  • 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.
  • 16 + 1 Teamed Power Stages16 + 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.

*Results may vary according to the capabilities of your CPU and memory modules.
**The comparison chart is based on a test with an Intel i9-13900K processor and 2×16 GB SK Hynix DDR5-4800 non-ECC UDIMMs, model HMCG78MEBUA081N
***Please ensure all memory modules are from a single validated kit. Do not combine DIMMs from multiple kits—even if they are the same make and model. Mixing and matching DIMMs can result in failure to boot, and compatibility cannot be guaranteed.
****Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimal compatibility, we recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or date code (D/C) from the same vendor. Check with your retailer to get the correct memory modules.

Storage

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.

*Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

PCIe® 5.0 Slot

PCIe 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express.

USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C®

A batch of USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including both front and rear USB Type-C connectors with ultrafast USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 for transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

Thunderbolt™ 4 (USB4® compliant)

PRIME Z790-A WIFI motherboard features USB4® support via a Thunderbolt™ (USB4®) header. With an ASUS add-on card*, PRIME motherboards can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable, while providing power to fast-charge device. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to dual displays with 4K resolution.

*ASUS add-on card is sold separately.

WiFi 6E

PRIME Z790-A WIFI Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band. It provides up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds and improved capacity as well as better performance in dense wireless environments.

*WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi.

Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet

Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfers.

LANGuard

ASUS PRIME Z790-A WIFI LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection feature that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput and ensure a more reliable connection.

CUSTOMIZATION

The PRIME Z790-A WIFI motherboard adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely
personal look.

PCIe® Slot Q-Release

A physical button located on the chipset heatsink 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.

Q-Latch

The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive and neatly eliminate traditional screws.

SafeSlot & SafeDIMM

PCIe 5.0 is 2x faster than PCIe 4.0, so we adapted our SMT manufacturing process for the faster SafeSlot, to ensure the highest data speeds. SafeSlot is a reinforced metal sheath added to a PCIe slot to keep a card firmly installed. Meanwhile, strong ASUS SafeDIMM sheathes support and protect memory modules on select ASUS PRIME Z790-A WIFI motherboards, empowering you to insert your modules with speed, accuracy and confidence.
