High Quality Components to Handle High Core CPUs

Robust Power Design

Robust Power Design Digital power control and an array of DrMOS power stages ensure that ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G has the strength to handle powerful Intel CPUs.

1. 12+2
Power Stages
12+2 DrMOS power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand.

2. Digi+
Power Control
The ASUS Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry and ensures ultra-smooth power delivery to the CPU.

3. ProCool II
Power Connector
ProCool II sockets are engineered to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines, and have a metal armor for improved heat dissipation. The connector's lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and improves reliability.

4. Choke
& Capacitor
Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, providing a higher level of performance than the industry standard.

Multi-GPU Support for High Performance Graphics

Multi-GPU Support

3x PCIe 3.0 x16 slotsASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G features three PCIe® 3.0 x16 slots for high-powered graphics cards such as NVIDIA® Quadro®, enabling enhanced performance in professional design, modeling and simulation and rendering applications.

Dual Thunderbolt 3 Type-C Ports

DUAL TB3 Ports

ULTRAFAST CONNECTIVITY FOR SEAMLESS SPEEDEach Thunderbolt 3 port supports DisplayPort 1.4 output and can daisy-chain to up to six devices, with 15 watts of power to fast-charge devices. ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, offering a total of up to 40 Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth, which allows numerous devices to be connected to the motherboard at once with ultrafast data transfer speeds.

Give Yourself More Connectivity Options

10g LAN Card

HYPER 10G LAN CardA HYPER 10G LAN card enables speeds that are up to 10 times faster than standard Gigabit Ethernet — so it’s ideal for content creators who frequently work with large files. Upload 4K video or transfer other large files quickly and with ease. The HYPER 10G LAN card can be installed for additional connectivity options. Installation is easy, and simply requires inserting the card into a PCIe® 3.0 slot and connecting your existing copper network cables to the RJ45 Ethernet port. No software installation or setup is necessary.

Enough Storage for All of your Creations

Dual M.2

Dual M.2 SlotsOne M.2 slot supports SATA and PCIe® 3.0 x4 modes, and the other supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe, offering up to 32 Gbps data-transfer speeds and flexible M.2 interfaces.

Tweak and Tune your Motherboard to Suit You

AI Overclocking

AI Overclocking ASUS AI Overclocking automatically tunes your system with onboard intelligence that monitors system vitals — such as temperatures, fan speeds and power draw — to estimate cooling and overclocking headroom and deliver optimal performance for content-creation workflows.

Predictive Edge

Predictive EdgeThe algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system and, based on what it finds, predicts optimal settings. The software then uses these settings to automatically guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.

Realtime Adjustments

Real-Time AdjustmentsThe software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute, and makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

Keep Your System Performing with Intelligent Cooling

AI Intelligent Cooling

AI Cooling With one click, AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.

Temperature detection sensors

CPU Temperature DetectionAI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.

Automated optimisation

Automated OptimisationUnder stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.

constant monitoring

Ongoing MonitoringAI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.

Designed and Optimised for Content Creation

Creation First With one click, AI Cooling technology will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.

Adaptive mode

Adaptive Intelligence ModeCreationFirst intelligently prioritises bandwidth of heavy-use applications by identifying in-use applications and using foreground acceleration. This allows for smoother multi-tasking, so you can work on projects while efficiently transferring files and downloading project materials.

Creation First Mode

Creation First ModeCreation First mode allocates more bandwidth to active content creation applications to optimise network traffic, making your content creation workflow more efficient.

Reach Peak Efficiency with the ProArt Creator Hub

Creator Hub

ProArt Creator Hub A user-friendly interface provides applications designed to enhance workflow through central control of all connected ProArt series products, including motherboards and displays.

1. Dashboard The dashboard monitors the overall status of the system and selects different modes to optimise performance for current tasks.

2. Fan Mode Fan mode quickly configures your system cooling by selecting preferred fan settings.

3. Task GroupApplications that are frequently used together can be arranged into groups and launched with a single click. These task groups can be set up on the WorkSmart page.
