The new wave of processors is here, which means a new wave of motherboards. In TAIPEI, Taiwan, on September 28, 2022, ASUS unveiled a broad range of Intel® Z790 motherboards for the Wide range of Intel products spanning the ROG Maximus, ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, and Prime product families—all designed to handle the newest 13th Gen Intel CoreTM processors. Z790 motherboards are designed to provide the best performance for gamers, creators, and users as a world-leading motherboard brand.
Thanks to user-friendly ASUS Q-Design features and proprietary technologies like ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II, AI Overclocking, and AI Cooling II, ASUS Z790 motherboards are the perfect choice for anyone looking to construct a new generation of computers or upgrade their current systems. ASUS has not only worked to ensure that their new motherboard and RAM worked with their own products, but also worked with other manufacturers to ensure compatibility.
When ASUS released the previous generation of Z690 machines on November 4, 2021. DDR5 RAM modules had just been available to the market. ASUS went beyond expectations to ensure that the new RAM worked as advertised on their motherboard, despite the doubts of many customers and builders. To ensure this, ASUS has put a lot of effort into it. They are the only manufacturer that has actually tested the new kits on their motherboards before pushing them out to customers.
They have done everything in their power to make sure that their customers have the best experience possible when buying their products. The ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) was established by ASUS in collaboration with numerous business partners. So it improved and expanded its compatibility with well-known RAM brands. In today’s more established DDR5 market, it is possible to find a wide range of memory kits at very attractive prices.
Users are beginning to prioritize performance over compatibility.
These profiles, created using a flexible training method, allow users to easily tune their memory above baseline settings while maintaining stable system operation. With AEMP II, you can access the best memory settings with a single click. This allows you to set custom values for latency, voltage, and DRAM timing. This lets you squeeze every drop of performance out of your hardware. Even the best computer parts have a limit, but AEMP II lets you find the sweet spot for maximum performance.
AEMP II also has a monitoring system that shows critical system stats. You can view real-time graphs and get a detailed picture of your computer’s activity. This makes it easier to fine-tune your system, letting you get superior performance from a high-speed kit. ASUS AI Overclocking is based on extensive research conducted in ASUS test labs, which measured the performance potential of thousands of processors.
This technology is a market leader in overclocking performance and usability. In workloads that use a few threads or all cores, this technology increases processor speed with a single click. AI Overclocking technology uses advanced artificial intelligence to monitor the efficiency of CPU coolers and changes in the computer’s operating environment, fine-tuning each component in the system to achieve the best performance possible.
This results in lower energy usage, less noise, and greater stability. AI Overclocking also enables each computer to be tailored to a specific user’s needs. For example, a computer with an extensive graphics design program can be outfitted with a higher-end graphics card, giving that computer the graphics capability of a workstation but at the price of a standard desktop. With AI Overclocking, every computer can be a workstation, making technology more affordable for everyone.
AI Overclocking technology is available on the ROG Maximus and ROG Strix Z790 motherboards for all users. ASUS AI Cooling II, which can be enabled via FanXpert in the Armory Crate app, uses a machine learning algorithm to collect data about the system during a brief stress test. Once the system is stress tested, the software analyzes the data and makes adjustments to the system fan curves based on the heat level of key components. Following this, AI Cooling II technology monitors the processor and uses the stress test data to calculate the lowest fan speed required to efficiently cool the system while keeping the noise level low.
Under continuous load, this fan control system can reduce fan noise by 5.7 dB.
Users can get cooling power, and silence allows users to squeeze out every last drop of performance from their hardware, achieving frame rates above the maximum rated speed of their hardware whenever they want thanks to this self-adaptive system. AEMP II is easy to use, and it comes with an intuitive interface. You can adjust these settings manually or let the software do all of the work for you.
This makes it an ideal choice for both new and experienced users. ASUS has also updated FanXpert to include full calibration and control capabilities. Users can easily remove a graphics card from the PCIe® slot using the ASUS Q-Release button. ASUS first introduced this convenient feature on its highest-end Z690 motherboards, and now the TUF Gaming and Prime Z790-A WiFi boards, which are mainstream, can also benefit from it greatly improving overall performance.
Users must lock both sides of the memory stick in traditional DIMM slot designs, and it was not always easy for those with large fingers to unlock the latch closest to the graphics card. All ASUS Z790 motherboards feature a single-sided Q-DIMM latch design for this reason.
Hence because of this users don’t have to be concerned about a latch that is too close to a graphics card with this approach. It simply takes one latch to keep a memory stick in place on the easier-to-access side of the DIMM slot.
RAM installation and upgrades are much simpler as a result. ASUS has simplified the procedure for installing an M.2 drive. Users can now secure or loosen an M.2 drive using just their fingertips thanks to the ASUS M.2 Q-Latch. It ensures that users will never ever handle another tiny, easily lost M.2 screw. This has been a great boon for users who want to build their own pc and who can’t find experts easily. This will also be the cause for an increase in price as simplicity comes at the cost of expense.
