Memory

AEMP II for Ultimate DDR5 Performance

ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP II is based on a CPU and memory module’s ability to train the memory chips on your kit, and it presents an optimized clock speed that can effortlessly unleash performance.

Built through a flexible training method, AEMP II makes it easy to not only tune the memory above baseline settings but also maintain the stability of system operation, whether getting the most out of an entry-level module or priming a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.

*Results may vary according to the capabilities of your CPU and memory modules.
**The comparison chart is based on a test with an Intel i9-13900K processor and 2x16 GB SK Hynix DDR5-4800 non-ECC UDIMMs, model HMCG78MEBUA081N
***Please ensure all memory modules are from a single validated kit. Do not combine DIMMs from multiple kits—even if they are the same make and model. Mixing and matching DIMMs can result in failure to boot, and compatibility cannot be guaranteed.
****Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimal compatibility, we recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or date code (D/C) from the same vendor. Check with your retailer to get the correct memory modules.

ASUS OptiMem II

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.

Storage

Four M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)

Prime Z790-A WIFI offers a total of four M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIe® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.

*Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

Connectivity

PCIe® 5.0 Slot

PCIe 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express.

USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C®

A batch of USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a rear Type-C connectors with ultrafast USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 for transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

Thunderbolt™ 4 (USB4® compliant)

PRIME Z790-A WIFI motherboard features USB4® support via a Thunderbolt™ (USB4®) header. With an ASUS add-on card*, PRIME motherboards can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable, while providing power to fast-charge device. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to dual displays with 4K resolution.

*ASUS add-on card is sold separately.

WiFi 6E

Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band. It provides up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds and improved capacity as well as better performance in dense wireless environments.

*WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi.
