Product Overview

Your Powerhouse for Creativity

ProArt B660-Creator D4 is an enhanced motherboard designed for intensive content-creation workloads like 3D rendering and 4K/8K video editing. It unleashes the performance of 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors through robust power delivery and cooling design, and its comprehensive connectivity includes onboard 2.5 Gb and 1 Gb Ethernet, a USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C® front-panel connector with Quick Charge 4+, and DisplayPort™ via USB-C.


Comprehensive Connectivity

An array of powerful I/O ports — including 2.5 Gb and 1 Gb Ethernet ports and three M.2 slots — enables quick data transfers and extensive storage options.


USB-C DisplayPort (DP Alt Mode)

This USB Type-C® port delivers transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps, and it supports an alternate mode that provides DisplayPort™ 1.4 output for up to 8K resolution at 60 Hz. This new feature gives creators premium-grade flexibility to choose between high-speed data or an additional hi-res display*.

*This functionality requires the bundled DP-to-DP cable to be connected from an installed graphics card to the DP IN port located on the rear I/O panel of the motherboard.


USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C® Front-Panel Connector with Quick Charge 4+

A USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 connector boosts Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The connector also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60 W with a PCIe power supply cable plugged into the nearby 6-pin connector.


Thunderbolt™ 4 Support

ProArt B660-Creator D4 features Thunderbolt™ 4 support via an on-board header. The ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card is certified by Intel and can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, the card has a daisy-chain function for multiscreen connection and supports one display with up to 8K resolution . It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.


Ultrafast M.2 Transfer Speeds

Three M.2 slots support PCIe 4.0 or 3.0 drives and provide NVMe® SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data transfer speeds.


M.2 Q-Latch

The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive, eliminating the need for screws.


Networking

Dual Ethernet ports provide fast data transfers simultaneously for internet and for local network-attached storage (NAS), allowing for improved data organisation and security.

2.5 Gb Ethernet
The 2.5 Gb Ethernet port provides faster data transfers and smooth high-res video streaming.

Intel® 1Gb Ethernet
The Intel I219-V Ethernet chip reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfers.


M.2 Slot (Key E)

ProArt B660-Creator D4 features an M.2 slot (key E) which can support type 2230 WiFi/Bluetooth and Intel CNVi (integrated WiFi/BT) modules*.

*The WiFi/BT module is purchased separately.


Next-Gen Performance

With tailored CPU power delivery and support for high-performance memory, ProArt B660-Creator D4 easily handles the demands of the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors. It features an intelligent VRM design that’s rated for 50 amps, plus carefully selected components and memory layout optimisations for multithreaded tasks such as 3D animation and video editing.


Teamed Power Stages

12+1 power stages rated for 50 amps combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors demand.


Digi+ Power Control

The ASUS Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry and ensures ultra-smooth power delivery to the CPU.


ProCool Power Connector

The ASUS ProCool socket is built to exacting specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines, enabling lower impedance and better heat dissipation.


Chokes & Capacitors

Premium alloy chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, providing a higher level of performance than the industry standard.


PCIe 5.0 Ready

The 12th Gen Intel processors bring PCIe 5.0 support to the market. 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 improved signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and backward compatibility with previous PCIe versions.


DDR4 Memory

ProArt B660-Creator D4 supports up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory across four slots. ASUS-exclusive OptiMem II technology improves trace layout to significantly reduce signal distance and crosstalk, enhancing memory stability and compatibility while giving memory kits higher clock speed margins.


Optimised Cooling Design

Maintaining system stability under heavy loads is of paramount importance, so ProArt B660-Creator D4 features comprehensive cooling with large VRM and chipset heatsinks that strike the right balance between surface area and mass. Integrated premium components and multiple fan headers are also vital design elements that provide the best foundation for content creation systems.


VRM Heatsinks

Two VRM heatsinks are placed above the MOSFETs and chokes to further increase surface area for heat dissipation.


M.2 Heatsinks

Two M.2 heatsinks cover three M.2 slots to keep M.2 SSDs at the optimal operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.


Chipset Heatsink

A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to help ensure that temperatures stay within an optimal range.


Perfect for Content Creation

ProArt exclusive software utilities deliver intuitive system monitoring, audio and networking enhancements that enable a smoother workflow.


Industry-Leading Security

ASUS Control Center Express software offers advanced security management functions to protect the system and confidential data.


ProArt Creator Hub

A user-friendly interface helps enhance workflows via a central system that allows monitoring and control of all connected ProArt products, including motherboards and displays.

1. Fan mode
Select the preferred fan setting to quickly configure the system’s cooling performance.

2. Task grouping
Applications that are frequently used together can be arranged into groups and launched with a single click.


CreationFirst

The CreationFirst optimisation utility allows users to prioritise applications to allocate more bandwidth for essential apps and tasks.

CreationFirst mode puts content-creation applications at the front of the queue, optimising network traffic for more efficient workflows.

Similarly, Adaptive Intelligence mode analyzes usage patterns and identifies applications that are currently in use, applying foreground acceleration to ensure smoother online experiences when multitasking.


Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation

As working from home becomes the new normal, clear online communication is more critical than ever. Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation is an audio utility that leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone* and incoming audio. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are smartly pared back so users can hear and be heard with crystal clarity.

*An audio splitter (3.5 mm audio jack Y-cable) is necessary when using a 3.5 mm headset.


Trusted Stability

ProArt B660-Creator D4 is engineered and rigorously tested to offer superior quality, stability and compatibility ? all to ensure that it empowers creativity for years to come.
