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.
3X PCIE 3.0 X16 SLOTS
ASUS 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.
ULTRAFAST CONNECTIVITY FOR SEAMLESS SPEED
Each 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.
HYPER 10G LAN CARD
A 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.
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.
