Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS PRIME series. The PRIME Z790-P WIFI motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximise productivity.
All-Around Energy Efficiency
The Power Saving function contains several settings can easily optimise power cone a CPU power limit, darken Aura lighting, and set the fan profile to a power ssumption and maximise energy savings. You can enablaving mode. You can also toggle the Power Saver plan that is built into Microsoft Windows.
Flexible Air And Liquid Cooling Controls
ASUS Fan Xpert 4 software provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans, water pumps and AIO coolers can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.
Precise Digital Power Control
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.
Cooler by Design
PRIME Z790-P WIFI features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 software or via the UEFI BIOS.
Multiple Temperature Sources
Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 4 allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
AIO Pump Header
A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.
4-pin PWM/DC Fan
Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
VRM Heatsinks And Thermal Pads
The extensive surface area of the massive heatsinks cover the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation. Together with specially engineered thermal pads, they improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
The PRIME Z790-P WIFI motherboard is built to handle the high core counts and bandwidth demands of 13th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors. ASUS Z790 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible data transfer options.
Robust Power Design
Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of Intel processors. The PRIME Z790-P WIFI is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.
AEMP II for Ultimate DDR5 Performance
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP II is based on a CPU and memory module’s ability to train the memory chips on your kit, and it presents an optimized clock speed that can effortlessly unleash performance.
Built through a flexible training method, AEMP II makes it easy to not only tune the memory above baseline settings but also maintain the stability of system operation, whether getting the most out of an entry-level module or priming a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.
ASUS OptiMem II
Revisions to the motherboard’s trace routing provide the latest Intel® processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Three M.2 Slots (up to 64 Gbps)
PRIME Z790-P WIFI offers a total of three M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIe® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
PCIe® 5.0 Slot
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 compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express.
The PRIME Z790-P WIFI motherboard adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look.
Combined onboard features deliver elevated audio
Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
Outshine the Competition
A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers — and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
The Q-LED Core display produces light patterns by power LED during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) that can help users troubleshoot potential issues.
PCIe® 5.0 is 2x faster than PCIe® 4.0, so we adapted our SMT manufacturing process for the faster SafeSlot Core+, to ensure the highest data speeds. SafeSlot Core+ is a reinforced metal sheath added to a PCIe slot to keep a card firmly installed.
