      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.

      *Theoretical Bandwidth

      RJ45 connector

      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
