TUF Gaming Z490-Plus
TUF Gaming Z490-Plus distills essential elements of the latest Intel platform and combines them with game-ready features and proven durability. With a comprehensive set of cooling options, this motherboard delivers rock-solid performance with unwavering gaming stability.
With 6-layered PCB design, the TUF Z490-Plus is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig. Equipped with DRMOS and ProCool sockets lower impedance is guaranteed eliminating any connection failure.
Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.
The board comes with an optimized cooling setup. Intelligent controls let you manage to cool easily, giving you everything you need to harness the full potential of your build for top-tier gaming performance.
Dual M.2 slots support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps on the x4 PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth, making it perfect for OS or application drives for quicker boot-up and app load times.
Thunderbolt 3 Support
An integrated Thunderbolt 3 header supports up to 40 Gbps. One Thunderbolt 3 port can support up to six devices in a daisy-chain, and provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.
ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB header. It can all be synced with Aura-capable ASUS hardware.
Manufactured via a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge.
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.
Stainless Steel I/O Panel
TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.
