ASUS ProArt Z690 CREATOR 12th Gen Intel ATX Motherboard

ProArt Z690 Creator

Create until your hearts content The ASUS ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi empowers creators of all levels by maximizing the performance of 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with powerful hardware and software, efficient cooling and lightning-fast connectivity including Thunderbolt™ 4, onboard 10 Gb and 2.5 Gb Ethernet, plus WiFi 6E. It features dynamic automated tuning with AI overclocking and AI cooling, in addition to the all-new CreationFirst software, which prioritises and optimises your network traffic for faster, lag-free online work. Every aspect of the ASUS ProArt motherboards is built to remove barriers and deliver optimal performance to content creators who work in 3D modeling and rendering, animation or media production. The series empowers you to concentrate on your creativity and expand what is possible.

The Next Generation of Performance

Intelligent VRM Design With tailored CPU power delivery and support for the latest high-performance memory, ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi easily handles the demands of the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. It features an intelligent VRM design that’s rated for 70 amps, plus carefully selected components and memory layout optimizations for multithreaded tasks such as 3D animation, video rendering and software compiling.

Power Design

Durable Excellent Power Delivery for the Latest CPUs16+1 power stages rated for 70 amps combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers which deliver power and efficiency for the latest Intel 12th Gen processors. The ASUS Digi+ voltage-regulator module ensures you get ultra smooth power delivery to your CPU. The ProCool socket enables lower impedance and better heat dissipation. Superior alloy chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures.

Aggregate bandwidth of up to 512GBPSThe 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 improved signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and backward compatibility with previous PCIe versions.

ASUS Enhanced Memory ProfileProArt Z690-Creator WiFi enhances DDR5 performance by providing overclocking options for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC). A dedicated circuit on the motherboard safely circumvents DDR5 memory PMIC restrictions, allowing you to step past the default 1.1-volt limit and push frequency and timings to the max. ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi leverages onboard hardware and firmware to cleverly work around this irksome limitation, enabling voltage adjustments to be applied through the same soft system-reset process employed for previous generations of DDR memory. For users new to memory overclocking, ProArt Z690‑Creator WiFi includes the exclusive ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP automatically detects the memory chips on your kit and then presents optimized frequency, timing and voltage profiles that you can effortlessly apply to unleash performance.

Future-Proofed Connectivity

wifi 6e

Robust Power Design A comprehensive array of powerful I/O ports — including two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports plus 10 Gb and 2.5 Gb Ethernet ports— enables quick data transfers and extensive storage options with flexible, hassle-free connectivity. Each Thunderbolt 4 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. USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 boosts 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.

1. WiFi 6E Antenna The antenna has two built-in transmitters and receivers to enable faster transmission speeds, and it supports the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands.

2. Adjustable Design Four-way positioning enables better signal reception.

3. Magnetic Base A powerful magnetic base secures the antenna on the top or side of the PC case.

WiFi 6EOnboard 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 networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.

Marvell® AQtion 10 Gb EthernetDesigned to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, onboard 10 Gb Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10 times the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos, performing system backups or transferring large files is now faster than ever before.

Intel® 2.5 Gb EthernetThe Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet port provides up to a 2.5 times improvement over standard 1 Gb Ethernet connections for faster data transfers and smooth high-res video streaming.

Ultrafast Transfer Speed with M.2 Storage

m2 storage

Easy to installFour PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to 22110 and provide NVMe® SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data transfer speeds. The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive and neatly eliminate traditional screws.

Real-time AdjustmentsThe software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute, and makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

AI OverclockingASUS AI Overclocking automatically tunes your system with onboard intelligence that monitors system vitals — such as temperatures, fan speeds and power draw — to estimate cooling and overclocking headroom and deliver optimal performance for content-creation workflows.

Keep Your System Performing with Intelligent Cooling

AI Intelligent Cooling

AI Cooling With one click, AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.

Temperature detection sensors

CPU Temperature DetectionAI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.

Automated optimisation

Automated OptimisationUnder stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.

constant monitoring

Ongoing MonitoringAI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.

Designed and Optimised for Content Creation

Creation first

prioritise content creation appsCreationFirst optimization software allows users to prioritize applications to allocate more bandwidth for essential apps and tasks. CreationFirst mode puts content-creation applications at the front of the queue, optimizing network traffic for more efficient workflows. Similarly, Adaptive Intelligence mode analyzes usage patterns and identifies applications that are currently in use, and applies foreground acceleration to ensure smoother online experiences when multitasking.

Comprehensive Cooling Design

AI Intelligent Cooling

AI Cooling Maintaining system stability under heavy loads is of paramount importance, so ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi features comprehensive cooling with large VRM and chipset heatsinks that strike the right balance between surface area and mass. Integrated premium components and multiple fan headers are also vital design elements that provide the best foundation for content creation systems. ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi features these comprehensive cooling options:

Temperature detection sensors

4-pin PWM/DC Fan HeadersEvery onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Automated optimisation

Multiple Temperature SourcesEach header can be set to monitor and react to multiple user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. All settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
