The intelligent Phantom Gaming 2.5Gb/s LAN platform is built for maximum networking performance for the demanding requirements of home networking, content creators, online gamers and high-quality streaming media. Boost networking performance up to 2.5X the bandwidth compared to the standard gigabit Ethernet, and you'll enjoy a faster and uncompromised connectivity experience for gaming, file transfers and backups.
Automatically detects and accelerates game traffic ahead of other network traffic for smoother, stutter-free in-game performance and the competitive edge.
This motherboard is designed to make the best out of 9th generation Intel® Core™ processors, the sturdy VRM design provides extreme overclocking potential, lower temperature during gaming and reinforced system stability for taking on all sorts of arduous computing tasks.
In addition to built-in RGB illumination, this product also features onboard RGB headers and an addressable RGB header that allow it to be connected to compatible LED devices such as strip, CPU fans, coolers, chassis and so on. Users may also synchronize RGB LED devices across the Polychrome RGB Sync-certified accessories to create their own unique lighting effects.
*The addressable RGB LED header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strip (5V/Data/GND), with a maximum power rating of 3A (5V), a max of 80 LEDs and length within 2 meters.
*The RGB LED header supports standard 5050 RGB LED strip (12V/G/R/B), with a maximum power rating of 3A (12V) and length within 2 meters.
A new world of cinematic audio that delivers unprecedented levels of audio realism, dynamics and punch to gaming sound. Whether you're gaming or watching a movie, Reality 3D technology lets you enable 5.1/7.1 surround sound for an additional layer of transience to your listening experience even with just a pair of headphones or stereo speakers.
A massive full-coverage M.2 heatsink is able to dissipate heat efficiently, ensuring your high-speed M.2 SSD always works at its best.
Equipped with M.2 slot that supports both SATA3 6Gb/s and PCIe Gen3 x4 Ultra M.2 interface that pushes data transfer speeds up to 32Gb/s, and is compatible with ASRock's U.2 Kit for installing some of the world's fastest U.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD.

This motherboard has a pair of onboard Type-A and Type-C USB 3.1 Gen2 ports built on the rear I/O for supporting next-generation USB 3.1 Gen2 devices and deliver up to 10Gbps data-transfer rates.
USB 3.1 Gen2 doubles the data transfer rate!
USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C doubles the charge speed!
Supports Intel® Optane™ memory technology and Intel® Optane™ storage technology that redefines a new standard of high performance and responsiveness.
Front USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C header delivers up to a 5Gbps data-transfer rate and next-generation reversible USB design to the front panel of the computer case.
Extra-large aluminum alloy heat sinks effectively take away heat from the MOSFET and chipset so that your whole system may perform more stable.
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock's premium 60A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Specifically designed for memory power delivery, these new alloy chokes feature a highly magnetic and heat-resistant design, thus delivering more stable and reliable power to the motherboard and memory modules.
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFETs design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to a traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM with a larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2mO, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
A combination of 820uF and 100uF capacitors. Together these capacitors provide clearer, efficient and more responsive CPU Vcore power, so overclockers may achieve higher scores.
Supreme 12K black capacitors with lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, ASRock applied Nichicon 12K Black Caps that offer 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.
A newly designed protective cover for all of the crucial parts near the motherboard's rear I/O, so that they won't easily be damaged by static electricity.
A new mysterious matte black and copper color scheme to match the prestigious components on ASRock's high-end motherboards.
The high-density glass fabric PCB design reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboard's components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
