Features:

DURABLE. STABLE. RELIABLE.
TUF Gaming Z490-Plus (WiFi) distills essential elements of the latest Intel® platform and combines them with game-ready features and proven durability. Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive set of cooling options, this motherboard delivers rock-solid performance with unwavering gaming stability. When you build with a TUF Gaming motherboard, you also benefit from the TUF Gaming Alliance — an ASUS collaboration with trusted industry partners that ensures easier building, best compatibility, and complementary aesthetics from components to case.

ROCK-SOLID PERFORMANCE
With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel the latest Intel® CPUs, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF Gaming Z490-Plus (Wi-Fi) is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.

DrMOS
The onboard VRM of TUF Gaming Z490-Plus (Wi-Fi) utilizes 12+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors demand.

6-LAYER PCB DESIGN
Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.

ProCool Sockets
Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

  • Extreme durability
  • Prevent hotspots and connector failure

TUF CHOKES
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.

TUF CAPACITORS
Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.

Digi+ VRM
The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.

VRM heatsink
A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.

Thermal pad
High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.

M.2 heatsink
The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

COMPREHENSIVE FAN CONTROLS
TUF Gaming Z490-Plus (Wi-Fi) features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 4 utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.

Multiple temperature sources
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.

AiO water-cooling set
An integrated AiO system enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, making it perfect for custom or self-contained cooling setups.

4-pin PWM/DC fan
All onboard headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Smart protection
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.

Dual M.2 (up to 32 Gbps)
Dual M.2 slots support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps on the x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth, making it perfect for OS or application drives for quicker boot-up and app load times.

DDR4 OC 4600 MHz+
Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.

  • Improved memory stability and compatibility
  • Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages
  • Improved memory frequency margin

USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A & Type-C
Numerous USB ports support gaming rigs loaded with peripherals, including a front-panel USB Type-C™ connector with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.

Thunderbolt™ 3 support
An integrated Thunderbolt™ 3 header supports up to 40 Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth. One Thunderbolt 3 port can support up to six devices in a daisy-chain, and provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.

EASY PC DIY
TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want —even for first-time builders. The TUF Gaming Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software offers full control of system settings via a single dashboard. TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.

Build with confidence
TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.

SafeSlot
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured via a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

ESD guards
ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV.

Keyboards and Mouse connectors
Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression.

VGA protection
Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect VGA output functionality.

USB connectors
TVS diode for surface-mount and dual in-line package.

TUF LANGuard
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

DRAM overvoltage protection
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.

Stainless-steel back I/O panel
TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.

Armoury Crate
Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal and synchronize them with Aura Sync for unified system lighting effects. The software also provides control of settings for a select and growing number of products, including keyboard and mouse preferences as well as laptop overclocking and fan speeds, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and news areas to help you stay in touch with the gaming community.

IMMERSIVE GAMING
TUF Gaming Z490-Plus (Wi-Fi) provides a complete, high-performance gaming package with a long list of features to improve your experience, including ultrafast networking for smoother online gameplay, pristine audio with positional cues for FPS gaming, and onboard RGB lighting that syncs with attached accessories to help you create a personalized gaming atmosphere.

Intel® WiFi 6 AX201
The Intel® WiFi 6 AX201 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.

INTEL® ETHERNET
Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.
