  • The TUF Gaming Z790 motherboards pack flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to expertly match the way you play.
  • The Power Saving function contains several settings that can easily optimize power consumption and maximize energy savings. You can enable a CPU power limit, darken Aura lighting, and set the fan profile to a power saving mode.
  • With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel the Intel CPUs, plus support for DDR4 memory and PCIe 4.0 storage, the TUF Gaming Z790-Plus WIFI D4 is the perfect foundation for your next Intel battle rig.
  • 16+1 power stages are each rated to handle 60 amperes, combining high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into a single package to deliver power, efficiency and stable performance for all compatible Intel processors.
  • The multilayered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the voltage regulators to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom.
  • Compared to most power inputs, ASUS ProCool connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure full contact with PSU power cables. The resulting lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and connector failure.
  • The integrated Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, optimized for ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
  • Military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-solid power to the CPU, improving system stability.
  • The TUF 5K metallic capacitors provide wider temperature tolerance and a longer lifespan than standard motherboard capacitors.
