Rock-Solid Performance

Mosfets

DRIVER AND MOSFET

The onboard VRMs feature 14+1 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 12th Gen Intel Core processors demand.The power stages are each rated to handle 80 amps to provide stable performance for current and future Intel processors.

Cooler by Design

TUF Gaming Thermal Solution

1. ENLARGED VRM HEATSINK

The extensive surface area of the massive heatsink covers the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation.

2. ENLARGED PCH HEATSINK

An expanded surface area for the chipset cooler maximizes performance and heat dissipation.

3. THREE M.2 SLOTS WITH HEATSINKS

Three out of four M.2 slots have dedicated heatsinks, keeping M.2 SSDs at optimal operating temperatures to ensure consistent performance and reliability.

Comprehensive Fan Controls

MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCES

Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.

4-PIN PWM/DC FAN

All onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

up

SMART FAN PROTECTION

A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from excess heat and electrical currents.

Incredible Memory Performance

DDR4 memory

DDR4 OC 5333

Improvements to trace routing design provide the latest Intel processors with enhanced access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce path distance, and it adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.

Unprecedented Storage Capabilities

four M.2 Slots

FOUR PCIE 4.0 M.2

The four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to two 22110 devices and also provide NVMe SSD RAID support for incredible performance potential. Create a RAID configuration with up to four PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data transfer speeds.

Say Hello to The Latest Generation

PCIe5.0

PCIE 5.0 SUPPORT

The 12th Gen Intel processors bring PCIe 5.0 support to the market. 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 backward compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express

TUF Protection for your Motherboard

Safeslot

SAFESLOT PROTECTION

PCIe 5.0 is 2x faster than PCIe 4.0, so ASUS adapted their 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 protects memory modules on select ASUS motherboards, empowering you to insert your modules with speed, accuracy and confidence.

Intel® WiFi 6 for Wireless Connectivity

GET UP TO 2.4GBPS

Intel® WiFi 6 The Intel® WiFi 6 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimised for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6. The WiFi antenna designs with four-way positioning that enables better signal reception, and a magnetic base to secure the antenna on the top or side of the PC case.

Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet

back

KEEPING YOUR CONNECTED

Onboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, lag-free gaming, and high-res video streaming. Turbo LAN is a network-optimisation software for customisable packet prioritisation. With cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology, it allows you to configure application priority via an intuitive interface, and reduces network lag.
