The 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.
Featuring sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.
In addition to the built-in RGB illumination, it also features onboard RGB headers and an addressable RGB header that allow motherboard 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.
No one has time for weak WiFi signals and sluggish internet! That's why this motherboard comes with an 802.11ac WiFi (2.4G/5G WiFi) module which supports wireless networks and Bluetooth v4.2.
An additional external base clock generator which provides a wider range of frequencies and more precise clock waveforms.
Users are able to connect two LAN cables to this motherboard's rear I/O. The Dual LAN with Teaming function enabled on this motherboard allows two single connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission more effective.
Teaming is supported on Windows 10 RS2 and above.
A massive full-coverage M.2 heatsink dissipates heat efficiently to ensure your high-speed M.2 SSD always works at its best.
The advanced PCI-E steel slots are packed with solid cover to prevent any signal interference with graphics cards. It also ensures the heavy graphics cards to be well-installed in the PCI-E slots safely.
Triple the speed of the world’s fastest slots, PCIe Gen3 x4 Ultra M.2 slots deliver up to 32Gbps transfer speed while also supporting SATA3 6Gbps M.2 modules.
Performance results may vary with a different configuration.
Front USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C header delivers up to 10Gbps data transfer rates and a next-generation reversible USB design to the front panel of computer case.
Supports Intel Optane memory technology and Intel Optane storage technology that both redefine a new standard of high performance and responsiveness.
Extra-large aluminum-alloy heatsinks 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 traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM with a larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2 mO, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
Supreme 12K black capacitors boast lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, ASRock's applied Nichicon 12K black caps 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 that 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, whose 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.
ASRock's Live Update & APP Shop is designed for your convenience. We provide various apps and support software for users to download. You can also easily optimize your system and keep your motherboard up to date with this utility.
