Media reviews
thanks to all the excellently thought out extras that come in handy when overclocking, it is a no-brainer for that target group.
...a two-trick pony: it is the cheapest board with 10 Gigabit LAN and Thunderbolt.
The ASUS ProArt Z490-Creator 10G is a gem of a motherboard for the Intel Z490 chipset. A really good motherboard with performance, functionality, reliability and aesthetics in mind.
The ample amount of Thunderbolt 3 ports and high-speed connectivity are what set the ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G apart from the usual “gaming” boards that ASUS makes. The 10G LAN alone costs around 8-10K if you were to just get a single add-in card, so a premium board giving you a 10G AIC for about 30K is actually a pretty good deal. If you are to explore workstation boards then you’ll end up spending a lot more so the ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G is a great board for creators.

Ultrafast Connectivity for
Seamless Speed

Onboard 2.5G Intel® Ethernet and optional 10G Ethernet card are both provided to boost cloud- and internet-based communication for accelerated workflow. A comprehensive set of high-performance I/O ports — including two Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C ports — enable quick data transfer speeds and extensive storage options with flexible, hassle-free connectivity.

Dual Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C Ports

Each Thunderbolt 3 port supports DisplayPort 1.4 output and can daisy-chain to up to six devices, with 15 watts of power to fast-charge devices. ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, offering a total of up to 40 Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth, which allows numerous devices to be connected to the motherboard at once with ultrafast data transfer speeds.

HYPER 10G LAN Card

A HYPER 10G LAN card enables speeds that are up to 10 times faster than standard Gigabit Ethernet — so it’s ideal for content creators who frequently work with large files. Upload 4K video or transfer other large files quickly and with ease.

The HYPER 10G LAN card can be installed for additional connectivity options. Installation is easy, and simply requires inserting the card into a PCIe® 3.0 slot and connecting your existing copper network cables to the RJ45 Ethernet port. No software installation or setup is necessary.

*Compatible with current network standards, including 10/5/2.5/1Gbps and 100Mbps, for seamless backward compatibility.
** PCIe 3.0 x4 will be switched from Thunderbolt™ 3 to PCIEX16_3 if the slot is populated by HYPER 10G LAN Card; by then Thunderbolt™ related functions will be disabled.

Onboard 2.5G Intel® Ethernet

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

Intelligent Optimization

ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G offers simple and flexible tools that enhance almost every aspect of your content-creation system, giving you the fast, intuitive control needed for efficient workflow. It features dynamic automated tuning with AI overclocking and AI cooling, in addition to CreationFirst software, which prioritizes and optimizes your network traffic for faster, lag-free online work.

AI Overclocking

ASUS AI Overclocking automatically tunes your system with onboard intelligence that monitors system vitals — such as temperatures, fan speeds and power draw — to estimate cooling and overclocking headroom and deliver optimal performance for content-creation workflows.

Faster file conversion boosts productivity

Testing configuration - CPU: Intel LGA1200 i9-10900K, Motherboard: ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G, DRAM:G.SKILL F4-4000C18Q2-64GTZR (8GB*2),Power : Phanteks PH-P850GC, HDD: RAIDR Express PCIe SSD, Water cooling: ROG RYUO 240, Test Software: FormatFactory

Predictive Edge

The algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system and, based on what it finds, predicts optimal settings. The software then uses these settings to automatically guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.

Real-time Adjustments

The software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute, and makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

*The real performance result will vary according to CPU capability, cooling and tuning options. Advanced Details >

AI Cooling

With one click, AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.

CPU Temperature Detection

AI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.

Automated Optimization

Under stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.

Ongoing Monitoring

AI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.

*Fans need to be connected to the following headers for AI Cooling control: CPU_FAN / CPU_OPT / CHA_FAN / M.2_FAN / H_AMP / RAD_FAN
