Features:

FLEXIBILITY
Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime Z690 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize productivity.

Intelligent Control - All-Around Energy Efficiency
The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes energy savings with Away mode - a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

Flexible Air- and Liquid-Cooling Controls
ASUS Fan Xpert 4 software provides comprehensive control over fans and all-in-one (AiO) cooler. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Theres also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans and AiO cooler can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

Precise Digital Power Control
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

UEFI BIOS
The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers
An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.

BACK TO FLEXIBILITY - COOLING
Prime Z690 series is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

Heatsinks - VRM Heatsinks and High-quality Thermal Pads
Two massive VRM heatsinks and high-quality thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.

Cooler by Design
Prime Z690 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 software or via the UEFI BIOS.

BACK TO COOLING - PERFORMANCE
Prime Z690 series is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 12th Generation Intel processors. ASUS Z690 motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

Power Design
Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of 12th Generation Intel processors. Prime Z690M-Plus D4 is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.

ProCool Connectors
Proprietary connectors augment the motherboard's link to the PSU with 4 pin+8 pin connectors that pass 12 volts of power directly to the processors. Each jack features solid pins that can handle more current than hollow-pin connectors.

10+1 DrMOS
A VRM with 10+1 DrMOS delivers the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand.

Memory - ASUS OptiMem II
Revisions to the motherboards 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.

Benefits of ASUS OptiMem II:

Improved memory stability and compatibility
Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages
Improved memory frequency margin
Motherboards with OptiMem II technology were tested with Synopsys HSPICE simulation software

Top layer - ground ring to prevent lateral interference - DDR4 5333 (OC)
Improvements 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.

Storage - Three M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)
Prime Z690M-Plus D4 offers a total of three M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIe 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.

* Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

Connectivity - PCIe 5.0 Slot
The 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.

USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C
Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including rear USB Type-C connector with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 for transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

Thunderbolt 4 Support
Prime Z690M-Plus D4 features Thunderbolt 4 support via an on-board header. With the latest Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card, it 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.

Intel 1 Gb Ethernet
Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.

Lower CPU workload - High TCP and UDP throughput - M.2 Slot (key E)
Prime Z690M-Plus D4 motherboard comes along with a M.2 Slot (Key E) which can support type 2230 Wi-Fi/BT and Intel CNVi (Integrated Wi-Fi/BT) module*

* The Wi-Fi/BT module is purchased separately.

BACK TO PERFORMANCE - CUSTOMIZATION
Prime Z690 series adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look.

Audio - Combined onboard features deliver elevated audio
Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything youve ever experienced.

Audio Shielding
Separates analog/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference.

Outshine the Competition
A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers - and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
