ASUS today announced a new lineup of ROG Z690 Motherboards built to support all-new 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.

The ASUS Z690 motherboard series delivers standard-defining performance for Intel® CPUs with power delivery and a wide range of cooling options. Featuring DDR5 memory modules and extensive support for PCIe® 5.0 devices, the series supports the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. The Z690 motherboards also includes an exclusive new overclocking technology called ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP), offering blistering-fast DDR5 performance in just a few clicks.

While DDR5 is ordinarily limited to a maximum of 1.1 volts, the Z690 series includes a special blend of circuitry and firmware to bypass this restriction, allowing users to discover beyond the limits of the new memory technology by enabling AEMP in the BIOS to quickly unlock a performance boost. To make this possible, ASUS has worked diligently with major DDR5 manufacturers around the world including Adata, Corsair, Crucial, Geil, G.SKILL, Kingston, Klevv, and Teamgroup to ensure high compatibility and stability.

Each motherboard within the ASUS Z690 series features built-in Windows 11 support, with mounting holes that are compatible with CPU coolers designed for either LGA 1200 or the new LGA 1700 socket.

For users who like to venture into endless customization and aesthetics, the Z690 series brings all-new visuals like the AniMe Matrix display that features mini programmable RGB LEDs to show off personal style with custom lighting designs, unique animations and live audio visualizations, as well as striking designs that evoke sci-fi worlds from cyberpunk to aerospace exploration.
