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 Z690-P WiFi 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® WiFi 6
The Intel® WiFi 6 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6. Learn more
