At the same time, its dual PCIe 5.0 x16 slots can accommodate powerful graphics cards while the PCIe 4.0 x16 slot supports other compatible expansions such as the included ASUS Hyper M.2 card. In addition to the on-board PCIe 4.0 and 3.0 M.2 solid-state drive slots, you can install up to two more M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe drives by using the Hyper M.2 card. This motherboard also has six SATA III drive headers with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 configurations.

The rear panel features two Thunderbolt 4 Type-C ports that can transfer up to 40 Gb/s with compatible daisy chained devices such as high-speed storage drives and monitors. There are also six 10 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports and a Type-C port alongside three USB 2.0 ports. A USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 header is available for adding a 20 Gb/s Type-C port to your compatible front panel. Take advantage of CPUs with integrated graphics by connecting a 4K monitor to the motherboard's HDMI 2.1 port. Use the built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E capabilities to transfer up to 2.4 Gb/s with compatible tri-band wireless networks and enjoy incredibly fast online games, live stream broadcasts, and more. Alternatively, you can use the 10 Gigabit Ethernet port to connect to compatible wired networks and high-speed devices. Other features include SupremeFX ALC4082 audio with gold-plated connectors and an ESS SABRE 9018Q2C DAC/AMP for crystal clear, detailed 7.1-channel surround sound. You can customize your computing experience using the addressable RGB lighting headers to customize various effects to match your mood, style, and game. Windows 10 or 11 64-bit is required to take advantage of all the ROG MAXIMUS Z690 Formula's features.

PCIe 5.0 Memory Bandwidth

The ROG MAXIMUS Z690 Formula motherboard pairs 12th generation Intel processors with PCIe 5.0 bandwidth, transferring up to a 128 GB/s in an x16 configuration using the Z690 chipset.

Performance

This motherboard features 20+1 teamed power stages rated for 105A, ProCool II power connectors, MicroFine alloy chokes, and premium metallic capacitors.

Thermal Design

The VRM heatsinks include an EK CrossChill III cooling solution, which works with the high-conductivity thermal pads and dual embedded backplates to help maintain optimal performance under demanding workloads. M.2 heatsinks on both the motherboard and the ROG Hyper M.2 Hyper card are designed to help avoid speed throttling during sustained data transfers. There is also a water-cooling zone that supports different pump configurations.

Storage and Memory

  • On-board PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 3.0 M.2 slots are available, supporting up to type 22110 NVMe PCIe and SATA SSDs
  • The included ROG Hyper M.2 card allows you to install one PCIe 5.0 x4 drive or up to two PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 22110 NVMe SSDs, depending on the PCIe slot
  • Six SATA III ports are available for hard drives and 2.5" SSDs
  • Supports RAID 0, 1, and 5 (NVMe)
  • Supports RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 (SATA)
  • Up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR5-6400 (OC) memory can be installed across four slots
  • Intel Optane memory is supported.
  • Note:
    When ROG Hyper M.2 card is installed on PCIEX16(G5)_1, the Hyper M.2_1 slot can support PCIe 4.0 x4 mode while PCIEX16(G5)_2 allows support for PCIe 5.0 x4 mode. Both will disable the Hyper M.2_2 slot. Installing it on PCIEX16(G4)_3 allows both Hyper M.2 slots to support PCIe 4.0 x4 mode. SATA6G_E1-2 ports cannot support RAID 0/1/5/10.

    Rear Panel USB Connectivity

  • 2 x Thunderbolt 4 Type-C (40 Gb/s)
  • 6 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A (10 Gb/s)
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (10 Gb/s)
  • Thunderbolt 4

    Thunderbolt 4 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector and features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB4 at up to 20 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort allows you to connect an 8K monitor or up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 4 port.

    Immersive Sound

    This motherboard includes SupremeFX ALC4082 7.1-channel high-definition audio with an ESS SABRE 9018Q2C DAC/AMP, providing crystal clear 32-bit, 384 kHz playback with a 120 dB SNR for stereo playback output and a 113 dB SNR recording input. Connect your speakers using the gold-plated audio jacks or S/PDIF optical port.

    RGB Lighting

    Connect, customize, and control equipment such as LED light strips with the onboard RGB and addressable RGB gen 2 headers to create dazzling effects that can be synchronized with ASUS Aura Sync compatible peripherals such as keyboards, mice, monitors, and more.

    Clear Communications

    Integrated two-way AI noise cancellation helps to ensure clear online voice and video chats.

    This motherboard is awesome! Packed with useful features and is stunning to look at. I had no troubles building with this motherboard. I wish all motherboards performed and looked as good as the Z690 Formula! I can't wait to build a custom EK water loop in my system. Nothing but good things to say about this board, I highly recommend it! It is outstanding!

    I love it, it's the best motherboard I have, easy to use, bios and the overclock presets this motherboard offers is easy to use and to maneuver your way around, thank you.

    Absolutely Beautiful

    Although I initially had trouble getting the motherboard to recognize my Samsung NVMe PCIe Gen4 M.2 drives upon initial startup and my DDR5 Corsair ram ran at lower than spec speed. Once I was able to update to the latest BIOS (version 1003) all is running stable and at spec speeds using XMP1 now. The ROG ASUS online forum was very helpful during my PC build. Absolutely beautiful motherboard and she's very fast! Will venture into overclocking soon but stability it more important to me right now. I couldn't be more happy. Thank you, ASUS!
