Power Delivery Enhancements

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTSModern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

1.8-PIN PROCOOL II POWER CONNECTORThe ProCool II socket is built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines and have a metal armour for improved heat dissipation. The connector's lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and improves reliability.

2. 8+2 DRMOS
POWER STAGEROG Strix Z490-I Gaming utilises 8+2 DrMOS power stages to combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand

3.UPGRADED
CHOKESSuperior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.

Unprecedented Thermal Dominance

Heatsinks

1. CUSTOM DELTA SUPERFLO FANA custom-made low-noise fan efficiently cools the area around the VRM by up to 12°C to give you more overclocking headroom, and it can also now be turned on or off via the UEFI BIOS. To ensure longevity, the fan utilises durable bearings with an impressive 60,000-hour L10* lifespan.

2. MOS HEATSINK WITH L-SHAPED HEATPIPEAn L-shaped heatpipe allows for rapid and even heat transfer, while the MOS heatsink provides a large contact area for the MOSFETs and chokes. Together with the metal I/O shroud, it covers a third of ROG Strix Z490-I motherboard, giving you effective cooling within the confines of a cramped mini-ITX chassis.​

3. TRIPLE-DECKER HEATSINKThe innovative Triple-decker Heatsink comprises of three heatsinks in a single module, with two M.2 heatsinks stacked on top of a PCH heatsink. The Triple-decker Heatsink cleverly maximises motherboard space, and improves airflow to bring M.2 SSD temperatures down by up to 25°C for better stability and performance.

4. THERMAL PADSThe M.2 heatsinks keep the M.2 SSD at the High-quality thermal pads transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.

ROG Smart AI Overclocking

Heatsinks

INTELLIGENT AI CONTROLROG engineers have developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition.​

AI OVERCLOCKINGTuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each system.

AI COOLINGAI Cooling automatically manages and controls motherboard connected fans, ensuring the most efficient settings depending on the current system load and temperature.

AI NETWORKINGGameFirst VI optimises and organises network bandwidth, effectively reducing jitter and eliminating spike lag to ensure smooth online gameplay.

Double-Capacity DIMM Support

M.2 Support

SMALL FORM, MIGHTY MEMORYROG Strix Z490-I Gaming has a unique memory-trace design that supports up to 32 GB per DIMM slot to give you a total memory capacity of 64 GB. With double‑capacity DDR4 DIMM modules, the compact ROG Strix Z490-I matches the memory capacity of four-DIMM motherboard designs.

Support for up to Two M.2 Drives

M.2 Support

MAXIMUM STORAGE COMPATIBILITYTwo M.2 slots are available, with both supporting SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.

The Future of Home-Networking

Networking

M.2 SOCKET WITH E KEYIntegrated with Intel® wireless-AX/AC technology, M.2 supports CNVi/PCIe/USB mode to build a faster and more cost-effective WiFi and Bluetooth® 5.1 solution.* *Bluetooth 5.1 will be ready in Windows 10 build 19041 or later.

INTEL 2.5G ETHERNETOnboard 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.

Audio Enhancement Options with Sonic Studio III

4K Recording

SONIC STUDIO IIISonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

SONIC STUDIO LINKThe new Sonic Studio Link now allows you to apply Sonic Studio effects on all playback devices. Simply press the Sonic Studio Link button to enjoy the effect on any playback devices.

SONIC STUDIO VIRTUAL MIXERA virtual audio device that lets streamers combine sound output and output from different apps. This allows you to mix your voice and video game audio within streaming software. A variety of adjustment and monitoring tools provide a high level of digital control.
