ULTRAFAST CONNECTIVITY FOR SEAMLESS SPEED
Onboard 2.5G Intel® Ethernet and optional 10G Ethernet card are both provided to boost cloud- and internet-based communication for accelerated workflow. A comprehensive set of high-performance I/O ports — including two Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C ports — enable quick data transfer speeds and extensive storage options with flexible, hassle-free connectivity.
Dual Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C Ports
Each Thunderbolt 3 port supports DisplayPort 1.4 output and can daisy-chain to up to six devices, with 15 watts of power to fast-charge devices. ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, offering a total of up to 40 Gbps of aggregate interface bandwidth, which allows numerous devices to be connected to the motherboard at once with ultrafast data transfer speeds.
HYPER 10G LAN Card
A HYPER 10G LAN card enables speeds that are up to 10 times faster than standard Gigabit Ethernet — so it’s ideal for content creators who frequently work with large files. Upload 4K video or transfer other large files quickly and with ease.
Onboard 2.5G Intel® Ethernet
Onboard 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, high-res video streaming and smoother lag-free gaming.
Dual M.2 slots
One M.2 slot supports SATA and PCIe® 3.0 x4 modes, and the other supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe, offering up to 32 Gbps data-transfer speeds and flexible M.2 interfaces.
SECURE DEVICE MANAGEMENT FOR DESIGN/CREATIVE STUDIOS
The ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G motherboard features ASUS Control Center Express to help manage USB ports, as well as blacklist software and block registry keys to prevent unauthorized access and data leaks. Its intuitive graphical UI enables easy client device management with real-time hardware and software monitoring in your studio.
ASUS ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G offers simple and flexible tools that enhance almost every aspect of your content-creation system, giving you the fast, intuitive control needed for efficient workflow. It features dynamic automated tuning with AI overclocking and AI cooling, in addition to CreationFirst software, which prioritizes and optimizes your network traffic for faster, lag-free online work.
ASUS AI Overclocking automatically tunes your system with onboard intelligence that monitors system vitals — such as temperatures, fan speeds and power draw — to estimate cooling and overclocking headroom and deliver optimal performance for content-creation workflows.
CPU Temperature Detection
AI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.
Under stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.
AI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.
CreationFirst network-optimization software allows you to prioritize applications in order to allocate more bandwidth to speed up essential apps and tasks.
Adaptive Intelligence Mode
CreationFirst intelligently prioritizes bandwidth of heavy-use applications by identifying in-use applications and using foreground acceleration. This allows for smoother multi-tasking, so you can work on projects while efficiently transferring files and downloading project materials.
Creation First Mode
Creation First mode allocates more bandwidth to active content creation applications to optimize network traffic, making your content creation workflow more efficient.
An intuitive graph gives you clear insights into current network traffic and bandwidth consumption by application or task type in real-time.
ProArt Creator Hub
A user-friendly interface provides applications designed to enhance workflow through central control of all connected ProArt series products, including motherboards and displays.
Fan mode quickly configures your system cooling by selecting preferred fan settings.
Applications that are frequently used together can be arranged into groups and launched with a single click. These task groups can be set up on the WorkSmart page.
