ASUS TUF Z690 PLUS D4
ASUS TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS D4 12th Generation Intel ATX Motherboard
INCREDIBLE DURABILITY ACROSS THE BOARDASUS TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS D4 takes all the essential elements of the latest Intel® processors and combines them with game-ready features and proven durability. Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive cooling system, this motherboard offers rock-solid and stable performance for marathon gaming. Aesthetically, TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS D4 sports the new TUF Gaming logo and incorporates simple geometric design elements to reflect the dependability and stability that defines the TUF Gaming series.
LGA 1700CPU Socket
12th Generation IntelCompatible CPUs
DRIVER AND MOSFETThe onboard VRMs feature 14+1 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 12th Gen Intel Core processors demand.The power stages are each rated to handle 80 amps to provide stable performance for current and future Intel processors.
Cooler by Design
1. ENLARGED VRM HEATSINKThe extensive surface area of the massive heatsink covers the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation.
2. ENLARGED PCH HEATSINKAn expanded surface area for the chipset cooler maximizes performance and heat dissipation.
3. THREE M.2 SLOTS WITH HEATSINKSThree out of four M.2 slots have dedicated heatsinks, keeping M.2 SSDs at optimal operating temperatures to ensure consistent performance and reliability.
Comprehensive Fan Controls
MULTIPLE TEMPERATURE SOURCESEach header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.
AIO WATER-COOLING SETTINGSAn integrated AIO system enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, making it perfect for custom or self-contained cooling setups.
EXCERCISE YOUR CONTROLTUF GAMING Z690 motherboards feature comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 4 utility in Armoury Crate or the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.
4-PIN PWM/DC FANAll onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
SMART FAN PROTECTIONA dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from excess heat and electrical currents.
Incredible Memory Performance
DDR4 OC 5333Improvements to trace routing design provide the latest Intel processors with enhanced access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce path distance, and it adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Unprecedented Storage Capabilities
FOUR PCIE 4.0 M.2The four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to two 22110 devices and also provide NVMe SSD RAID support for incredible performance potential. Create a RAID configuration with up to four PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data transfer speeds.
Say Hello to The Latest Generation
PCIE 5.0 SUPPORTThe 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 electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and backward compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express
TUF Protection for your Motherboard
SAFESLOT PROTECTIONPCIe 5.0 is 2x faster than PCIe 4.0, so ASUS adapted their SMT manufacturing process for the faster SafeSlot, to ensure the highest data speeds. SafeSlot is a reinforced metal sheath added to a PCIe slot to keep a card firmly installed. Meanwhile, strong ASUS SafeDIMM sheathes support and protects memory modules on select ASUS motherboards, empowering you to insert your modules with speed, accuracy and confidence.
Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet
KEEPING YOUR CONNECTEDOnboard 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, lag-free gaming, and high-res video streaming. Turbo LAN is a network-optimisation software for customisable packet prioritisation. With cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology, it allows you to configure application priority via an intuitive interface, and reduces network lag.
Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
EXCELLENT GAMING AUDIOThis utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone and incoming audio, while preserving vocals at the same time. This removes distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises so you can hear and be heard with crystal clarity while gaming or in calls.
Let Your Personality Shine Through
A.Addressable Gen2 RGB Header
ASUS AURA SYNCA well-tuned system deserves a matching aesthetic. TUF Gaming Z690 series features edge lighting to enhance its rugged look, and now the PCH heatsink gets RGB lighting to take the style even further. ASUS Aura offers full RGB control with a variety of functional presets for built-in LEDs as well as third-party strips you can connect to onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
ASUS Armory Crate
INTUTIVE SOFTWARE CONTROLArmoury Crate is exclusive ASUS software that gives you centralised control of supported gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customise RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal and synchronize them with Aura Sync for uniﬁed system lighting effects. It also provides hardware information and control of settings for a select and growing number of products, including keyboard and mouse preferences, Fan Xpert 4 and Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and news sections to help you stay in touch with the gaming community.
