Exclusive Features

  • AI Overclocking
  • AEMP II
  • Power & Cooling
  • MCE

ASUS Z790 motherboards feature exclusive software and firmware that leverage machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to push the boundaries of performance.

From the moment you turn on the system, dedicated onboard microcontrollers track temperature and frequency telemetry to gauge the unique capabilities of your CPU and system cooling. The resulting data is then passed through an advanced algorithm coded by experts to provide overclocking results that newcomers and savvy veterans can rely on.

ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II

ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP II is based on a CPU and memory module’s ability to train the memory chips on your kit, and it presents an optimized clock speed that can effortlessly unleash performance.

Built through a flexible training method, AEMP II makes it easy to not only tune the memory above baseline settings but also maintain the stability of system operation, whether getting the most out of an entry-level module or priming a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.

* Results may vary according to the capabilities of your CPU and memory modules. ** The comparison chart is based on a test with an Intel i9-13900K processor and 2x16 GB SK Hynix DDR5-4800 non-ECC UDIMMs, model HMCG78MEBUA081N

  • Robust Power

    With tailored power delivery and support for the latest high-performance memory, ASUS Z790 motherboards easily handle the demands of 13th Gen Intel® Core processors. They feature an intelligent VRM design that’s rated for up to 105 amps, plus carefully selected components and memory layout optimizations to cater to enthusiasts looking to create a battle-ready rig with balanced performance.

  • AI Cooling II

    ASUS AI Cooling II balances the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. An ASUS-exclusive algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then it monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.

Unleash the power of an Intel 13th Gen CPU with ASUS MultiCore Enhancement, all while keeping temperatures under control. This UEFI BIOS setting helps boost all CPU cores to max turbo speeds. New for Z790, ASUS motherboards offer an additional option which similarly removes the limits holding back CPU boosting behavior, but also imposes a CPU temperature limit at 90° Celsius. This gives you outstanding multicore performance, but with restrained thermals.
