ROG Strix Z790-A Gaming WiFi Intel 13th Generation ATX Motherboard

ASUS ROG Strix Z790-A Gaming WiFi Motherboard

GET READY FOR THE NEWEST GENERATIONWell-versed in style, performance, cooling, and connectivity, the DDR5 variant of the ROG Strix Z790-A exudes the same balance as its D4 brethren, but after taking a master class in memory. A robust VRM topped with stout silver heatsinks comfortably articulates power for the latest Intel® 13th Gen Core processors, while PCIe 5.0, WiFi 6E, and high-speed USB flesh out the board's fluency across a variety of disciplines. And a vast collection of tuning options and utilities derived from its ROG heritage are the icing on top.

All-Round Performance

Push frequency and timings to the maxRobust power delivery, breakneck DDR5 memory, speedy storage, and comprehensive cooling to elevate any build with the ROG Strix Z790-A at its center.


DDR5 DOMINATIONROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven far beyond the 7 GT/s mark on the Strix Z790-A, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.

Experience the Power of AI

Intelligent Motherboard Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.


AI COOLING IIBalance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.


TWO-WAY AI NOISE CANCELATIONThis utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce over 5 million types of background noise from incoming or outgoing audio, helping ensure crystal-clear communication in games or calls.


AI NETWORKINGGameFirst VI optimises networking performance by allocating bandwidth in real time based on application usage scenarios and corresponding learning algorithms. The latest update includes dedicated support for GeForce NOW to ensure the lowest latency possible during intense game streaming sessions.

Windows 11 Logo Is your Windows Genuine?

Many copies of Windows operating systems bought from unofficial channels like auction websites are not Genuine, even if they have allowed you to upgrade to newer versions. Buying a Genuine copy from an authorised reseller like Scan ensures you will get the latest updates, security patches and support from Microsoft.


Top-Level PC Performance Demands Exceptional Cooling


Cooling innovation The ROG STRIX Z790-A GAMING WIFI is armed with thick heatsinks that are bonded to the metal I/O shield to cool the VRMs. Multiple M.2 heatsinks help maintain onboard M.2 NVME SSDs at optimal temperatures for consistent performance and reliability. An integrated M.2 backplate helps ensure that high-performance drives deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.

Outshine the Competition

ID Design

UNDENIABLY ROG STRIXThe ROG Strix Z790-A boldly embraces the light, for an alternate take on build themes to its dark and brooding brother, the Strix Z790-F. Silver metallic heatsinks pop against a dark PCB backdrop and call attention to the board's high capacity for thermal management. A transparent layer on the I/O shield adds a unique touch and emphasises the customisable RGB logo below. The whole design is tied together with ROG-centric detailing on the board, heatsinks, and I/O shield for a vibrant and futuristic outlook. Pair the Strix Z790-A with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem to create a fully-customized gaming setup that reflects your personal style.

Create a Fully Customised Gaming Setup


PCIE® SLOT Q-RELEASEA physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot's security latch with one press, greatly simplifying the process of detaching a PCIe card from the motherboard when it's time to upgrade to a new GPU or other compatible device.


PCIE 5.0The top PCIe 5.0 x16 SafeSlot is well-equipped for the increased size and bandwidth of next-gen graphics cards. Zippy storage options abound with four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, all featuring robust heatsinks to maximise performance.

Supreme Networking Capability


WIFI 6EOnboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.

2.5G EthernetLow-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.

Fine-Quality Components for Exceptional Clarity


SUPREMEFXROG SupremeFX is a unique blend of hardware and software technologies that provide superior audio. The Strix Z790-A implementation features the ALC4080 codec for high-resolution playback up to 32-bit/384 kHz across all channels. Front-panel output is streamed through the integrated Savitech amplifier that can drive high-fidelity acoustics to a wide variety of speakers and headsets.
