Next-Gen Performance

With tailored CPU power delivery and support for the latest high-performance memory, ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi easily handles the demands of the latest 13th & 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. It features an intelligent VRM design that’s rated for 70 amps, plus carefully selected components and memory layout optimizations for multithreaded tasks such as 3D animation, video rendering and software compiling.

Intelligent Optimization

ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi 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, CreationFirst software prioritizes and optimizes your network traffic for faster, lag-free online performance.

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.

  • Designed by Experts
    Designed by Experts

    For each new motherboard platform, the ASUS R&D team painstakingly profile thousands of processors and system configurations to hone the highly advanced algorithm of AI Overclocking.

  • Predictive Edge
    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
    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.

Comprehensive Cooling Design

Maintaining system stability under heavy loads is of paramount importance, so ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi features comprehensive cooling with large VRM and chipset heatsinks that strike the right balance between surface area and mass. Integrated premium components and multiple fan headers are also vital design elements that provide the best foundation for content creation systems.

ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi motherboard features compressive cooling design. ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi motherboard features compressive cooling design.
  1. VRM Heatsinks

    Two VRM heatsinks are placed above the MOSFETs and chokes to further increase surface area for heat dissipation.

  2. M.2 Heatsinks

    Three dedicated heatsinks keep the four M.2 SSDs at the optimal operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

  3. Chipset Heatsink

    A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to help ensure that temperatures stay within an optimal range.
