AI Overclocking at a Glance
Intelligent Motherboard ROG engineers developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition. Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push each system to its limits.
Designed by ExpertsFor each new motherboard platform, ROG in-house experts painstakingly profile thousands of processors and system configurations to hone the highly advanced algorithm of AI Overclocking.
Predictive EdgeThe algorithm analyses your CPU and system cooling, and then defines optimal voltage and frequency settings. Predicted values can be applied manually or engaged automatically to save time.
Real-time AdjustmentsOnce activated, the AI Overclocking utility continually tracks vital system stats, making profile adjustments to account for changes in system usage or ambient temperature.
Top-level PC Performance Demands Exceptional Cooling
Cooling innovation The ROG Strix Z690-A Gaming WiFi D4 is armed with Two thick heatsinks cool the VRMs and protect the rear I/O panel that is bonded to a pre-mounted metal I/O shield. This structure provides ample surface area and mass to deliver a river of power to high-performance 12th Gen Intel processors. Specially engineered thermal pads efficiently transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink. Multiple M.2 heatsinks help maintain onboard M.2 NVME SSDs at optimal temperatures for consistent performance and reliability. An integrated M.2 backplate helps ensure that high-performance drives deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.
