ASUS Z690 Formula Overview

Take your gaming and content creation experiences to the max and beyond with the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Formula LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard serving as the powerful foundation for your desktop computer build. Supporting 12th generation Intel LGA 1700 socket processors and the Z690 chipset, which takes advantage of the large PCIe 5.0 data bandwidth, this ATX motherboard is designed to take on intensive workloads such as 8K video editing, high-end games, and more. Up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR5 RAM, reaching 6400 MHz when overclocked, can be installed across four memory slots to improve the system's multitasking capabilities. At the same time, its dual PCIe 5.0 x16 slots can accommodate powerful graphics cards while the PCIe 4.0 x16 slot supports other compatible expansions such as the included ASUS Hyper M.2 card.

In addition to the on-board PCIe 4.0 and 3.0 M.2 solid-state drive slots, you can install up to two more M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe drives by using the Hyper M.2 card. This motherboard also has six SATA III drive headers with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 configurations. The rear panel features two Thunderbolt 4 Type-C ports that can transfer up to 40 Gb/s with compatible daisy chained devices such as high-speed storage drives and monitors. There are also six 10 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports and a Type-C port alongside three USB 2.0 ports. A USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 header is available for adding a 20 Gb/s Type-C port to your compatible front panel. Take advantage of CPUs with integrated graphics by connecting a 4K monitor to the motherboard's HDMI 2.1 port. Use the built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E capabilities to transfer up to 2.4 Gb/s with compatible tri-band wireless networks and enjoy incredibly fast online games, live stream broadcasts, and more. Alternatively, you can use the 10 Gigabit Ethernet port to connect to compatible wired networks and high-speed devices. Other features include SupremeFX ALC4082 audio with gold-plated connectors and an ESS SABRE 9018Q2C DAC/AMP for crystal clear, detailed 7.1-channel surround sound. You can customize your computing experience using the addressable RGB lighting headers to customize various effects to match your mood, style, and game. Windows 10 or 11 64-bit is required to take advantage of all the ROG MAXIMUS Z690 Formula's features. PCIe 5.0 Memory Bandwidth

The ROG MAXIMUS Z690 Formula motherboard pairs 12th generation Intel processors with PCIe 5.0 bandwidth, transferring up to a 128 GB/s in an x16 configuration using the Z690 chipset.


This motherboard features 20+1 teamed power stages rated for 105A, ProCool II power connectors, MicroFine alloy chokes, and premium metallic capacitors.

Thermal Design

The VRM heatsinks include an EK CrossChill III cooling solution, which works with the high-conductivity thermal pads and dual embedded backplates to help maintain optimal performance under demanding workloads. M.2 heatsinks on both the motherboard and the ROG Hyper M.2 Hyper card are designed to help avoid speed throttling during sustained data transfers. There is also a water-cooling zone that supports different pump configurations.
