ROG Maximus Z690 Formula DIVERSITY TO THE MAXIMUS. That’s what the latest Formula brings to the acclaimed ROG Maximus series. Its Moonlight White armor and customizable ARGB lighting elements ride alongside a hybrid VRM block designed in collaboration with EK, giving you ample freedom to express your preferred build style. And underneath, circuit pathways illuminated with PCIe® Gen 5.0 and limit-breaking DDR5 support are poised to elevate performance well into the future, driving the Maximus Z690 Formula's appeal far beyond aesthetics. INTELLIGENT MOTHERBOARD Intelligent software solutions help ensure that your system performs at its best. The latest ASUS AI-powered enhancements span four pillars of performance, including overclocking, cooling, networking and onboard audio, making advanced tweaks and optimization accessible to new recruits and savvy PC DIY veterans alike. PERFORMANCE The ROG Maximus Z690 Formula CPU VRM is comprised of 105 amp power stages that are strategically teamed to quickly cancel transients. Alongside, the ROG take on DDR5 support frees memory kits to achieve their full potential. TEAMED POWER ARCHITECTURE Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal. DDR5 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. For DDR5, the Maximus Z690 lineup breaks performance limits by providing a stacked suite of overclocking parameters for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC). COOLING An ambition to maximize performance calls for an appropriately powerful platform. Enter the CrossChill EK III VRM block, empowering enthusiasts to break the limits of conventional voltage regulation with a hybrid cooling system that sails past the core power requirements of 12th Gen Intel Core processors while maintaining rock-steady thermals. THERMAL MANAGEMENT ROG Maximus Z690 Formula features comprehensive cooling options that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. ROG WATER-COOLING ZONE Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop. CONNECTIVITY The latest connectivity solutions ― WiFi 6E, PCIe® 5.0 and two Thunderbolt™ 4 USB Type-C® ports ― empower supersmooth networking and blisteringly fast file transfers. And for enthusiasts looking for high-fidelity audio, the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec takes gaming immersion to a whole new level while also saving a PCIe slot. WIFI 6E Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments. MARVELL® AQTION 10 GBPS ETHERNET Designed to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10 times the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos and system backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before. USB 3.2 GEN 2X2 TYPE-C® FRONT-PANEL CONNECTOR WITH QUICK CHARGE 4+ USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 adds an additional lane that can boost Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The port also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60 W with a PCIe power supply cable plugged into the nearby 6-pin connector. TWO ONBOARD THUNDERBOLT 4 USB TYPE-C® PORTS Each port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest high-speed devices and drives. Thunderbolt 4 also supports up to two external 4K displays and extends PCIe bandwidth to up to 32 Gbps. Three Onboard M.2 slots ROG Maximus Z690 Formula features three onboard M.2 slots, with two offering support for PCIe 4.0 SSDs. ROG HYPER M.2 CARD PCIE 5.0 READY If users need more M.2 storage or even faster data transfers, the bundled ROG Hyper M.2 Card features two more slots, one of which is a PCIe 5.0 and ready to perform at up to twice the speed of the accompanying PCIe 4.0 slot. SUPREMEFX ROG SupremeFX audio technology delivers an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide best-ever recording quality. There's also a low-dropout regulator for clean power delivery to the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec, and an ESS® 9018Q2C integrated DAC. Audio line shielding Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio. ESS® SABRE 9018Q2C The ESS® SABRE 9018Q2C integrated DAC amplifier is capable of providing -115 dB total harmonic distortion (THD+N) for playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track. In addition, the 121 dB dynamic range (DNR) provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch. ALC 4082 Codec The ALC4082 codec uses USB instead of the conventional high-definition audio (HDA) interface and improves playback audio resolution from 192 to 384 kHz. Switching MOSFETs A unique design allows the codec's impedance-sensing function to be ported with either the front or rear headphone outputs. Premium capacitors High-quality integrated components help produce warm, natural-sounding audio with exceptional clarity. OPTIMIZATION ROG Maximus Z690 Formula is packed with intuitive and flexible tools that give builders next-level control of system performance. LEVEL UP PERFORMANCE The dashboard-style control panels of AI Suite 3 and Armoury Crate let you fine-tune almost every aspect of your ROG Maximus Z690 Formula system with ease.
