Description

Rock-Solid Performance
With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to drive the 11th and 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF GAMING Z590 series motherboards are the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.

Power Design

DrMOS
The onboard VRM of TUF GAMING Z590 series motherboards utilize 14+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 11th Gen Intel Core processors demand.

6-layer PCB Design
Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.

ProCool Connectors
Enhanced EATX 4-Pin and 8-Pin Connectors
・ Extreme durability
・ Prevent hotspots and connector failure

Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

TUF Chokes
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.

TUF Capacitors
Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.

Digi+ VRM
The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.

Cooler by Design

1. 1.6X larger VRM heatsink
The extensive surface area of the large, high-mass heatsink covers the VRM and choke to improve heat dissipation. The total surface area of the VRM heatsink is 1.6X that of the previous generation.

Thermal pad
High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.

Three M.2 slots with heatsinks
Each M.2 slot has a dedicated heatsink keep the M.2 SSDs at optimum operating temperature to ensure consistent performance and reliability.

Comprehensive Fan Controls
TUF GAMING Z590 series motherboards feature comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 4 utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.

PCIe 4.0 M.2 (up to 64 Gbps)
TUF GAMING Z590 series motherboards feature PCIe 4.0 M.2 and NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to PCIe 4.0 storage to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 11th Gen Intel Core processors.

*Actual transmission speed will be lower than theoretical maximum speed.
**The M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0, and the M.2_2 and M.2_3 support PCIe 3.0.

DRAM Overclocking Performance
DDR4 OC 5133 MHz+
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.

USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C
Extensive USB support ensures connections to a wide array of peripherals. TUF GAMING Z590-PLUS WIFI includes USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C® that deliver increased bandwidth and transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

Thunderbolt™ 4 Support
TUF GAMING Z590 series feature Thunderbolt™ 4 support via an on-board header. With latest Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card, TUF GAMING Z590-PLUS WIFI can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to an 8K resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.

Easy PC DIY
TUF GAMING motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want —even for first-time builders. The TUF GAMING Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software offers full control of system settings via a single dashboard. TUF GAMING motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.

Immersive Gaming
TUF GAMING Z590 series motherboards provide a complete, high-performance gaming package with a long list of features to improve your experience, including ultrafast networking for smoother online gameplay, pristine audio with positional cues for FPS gaming, and onboard RGB lighting that syncs with attached accessories to help you create a personalized gaming atmosphere.

Intel® WiFi 6
The Intel® WiFi 6 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it’s optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6.

Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet
Onboard 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.
