Audio 
 
SupremeFX
Built-in SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio. It provides a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And if you're using a gaming headset, the front panel output is driven by two op amps to preserve audio quality.
 
Audio-line shielding
Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio.
 
Dual OP amplifiers
With two op-amps onboard you're able to pump exceptional audio to your favorite cans, with 32-600-headphone impedance for great flexibility.
 
Premium Nichicon audio capacitors
Fine-quality Japanese-made components that produce a warmer, natural sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.

Customisation 
 
Undeniably ROG STRIX
Aesthetically, ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming keeps it low key, with black and grey finishes complemented by cybertext markings across the Triple-decker Heatsink.
 
 
 
 
DIY Friendly
 
Pre-Mounted I/O Shield
ROG's patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.
 
 
 
 
 
Q-LEDS
 
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status, and any problem with the CPU, memory, graphics card or boot device for quick diagnosis.
 
 
 
 
 
Safeslot
 
The reinforced ASUS SafeSlot provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance.
 
 
 
 
 
BIOS Flashback
 
BIOS FlashBack is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.
 
 
 
 
 
ROG Gives you More
 
ROG exclusive software utilities deliver intuitive audio tuning and gaming enhancements so you can configure your gaming build the way you want.
 
 
 
 
 
Optimisation 
 
5-Way Optimisation 
Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking,but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the get-go.
 
TPU Insight
The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking settings. We have upgraded this tool to provide AI Overclocking prediction values for users who want more insight when experimenting with different settings.
 
EPU Guidance
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode - a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
 
Fan Xpert 4
Enjoy comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Expert 4 or our award-winning UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum - keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
 
Digi+ Power Control
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.
 
Turbo App
This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level  so your system is perfectly optimized for whatever you're doing.
 
 
 
 
 
Audio 
 
Sonic Studio III
Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
 
DTS: Sound Unbound 
ROG Strix Z490 series includes a pre-loaded DTS Sound Unbound app that envelops you in audio as never before, conjuring whole new levels of immersion for extraordinary gaming and entertainment experiences. By exploiting Windows Sonic spatial technology, DTS Sound Unbound delivers audio in a virtual 3D space - putting you right in the middle of the soundscape, where you can sense the location and direction of every gunshot, footstep or other sound in your virtual environment.
 
Stereo Sound
The classic headphones or two-speaker setup, delivering discrete left and right audio channels.
 
Surround Sound
Audio that's split into and served over multiple speaker channels - such as 5.1 or 7.1 - creating an enveloping experience, but on a single logical plane.
 
Spatial Sound
An all-new experience that creates a virtual audio 'sphere', with you at the center, so sounds seem to travel in all directions - creating astonishing 360 immersion.
 
 
 
 
 
Armoury Crate
 
Armoury Crate is a software utility that provides centralized control of supported ROG gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate puts command of all your Aura gear at your fingertips, with the new Aura Creator ready. The software also provides control of settings for a select and growing number of ROG products, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and ROG news feeds areas to help you stay in touch with the ROG gaming community.
