ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming supports up to 64GB DDR4 memory across two slots. OptiMem II technology improves trace layout to significantly reduce vias and crosstalk to enhance memory stability and compatibility, giving memory kits higher frequency margins.
ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming has a unique memory-trace design that supports up to 32 GB per DIMM slot to give you a total memory capacity of 64 GB. With double‑capacity DDR4 DIMM modules, the compact ROG Strix Z490-I matches the memory capacity of four-DIMM motherboard designs.
DualPCIe 3.0 M.2
Two M.2 slots are available, with both supporting SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.
PLAY YOUR OWN STYLE
The cyberpunk-inspired aesthetics are accentuated by the bold slashes and cybertext. Together with the most diverse ROG ecosystem, Pair your ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming with other ROG products to customize a gaming rig that reflects your personal style.
Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking,but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the get-go.
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 comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
