Powered exclusively by 8th and 9th Generation Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors, the Prime Z390-P LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from ASUS maximizes connectivity and speed with M.2, USB 3.1 Gen 2, and ASUS OptiMem II for better DRAM overclocking stability. Additionally, 5X Protection III hardware-level safeguards with SafeSlot Core, LANGuard, and overvoltage protection provide component longevity and reliability, while FanXpert 4 with AIO Pump Header delivers advanced fan control for dynamic system cooling. SafeSlot Core and its fortified PCIe slots help prevent damage caused by heavy GPUs, and 8-channel HD gaming audio with the Realtek ALC887 codec provides immersive audio. The Prime Z390-P caters to daily users and content creators with well-rounded specs and features. Combining the benefits of Intel processors with essential ASUS design and engineering, the Prime Z390-P provides a wealth of options for performance tuning via software and firmware features. This motherboard is designed to fit in ATX sized cases, supports the LGA 1151 socket, the Intel Z390 chipset, and is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit).
The ATX form factor of the Prime Z390-P can support up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM over four dual-channel slots, or 16GB per slot at speeds of 4266 (OC) 4133 (OC), 4000 (OC), 3866 (OC), 3733 (OC), 3600 (OC), 3466 (OC), 3400 (OC), 3333 (OC), 3300 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666, 2400, and 2133 MHz non-ECC unbuffered memory. For storage, there are four SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and two M.2 Socket 3, with M key, one of which supports type 2242, 2260, 2280 PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA SSDs, while the other supports type 2242, 2260, and 2280 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x2 and SATA SSDs. When properly configured, RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 are supported.
There are also two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports (rear panel), two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports (rear panel), four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (rear panel), two PS/2 ports (rear panel), two USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectors (mid-board) that support four additional USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, two USB 2.0 connectors (mid-board) that support an additional three USB 2.0 ports, and one COM port connector (mid-board). For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, there one PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slot (x16 or x8+x4+x4), one PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slot (max at x4 mode), and four PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1 slots.
For delivering sharp, clear graphics, this motherboard supports Intel HD Graphics with HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. HDMI supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 at 30 Hz and the DisplayPort supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2304 at 60 Hz. Integrated graphics has access to up to 1024MB of shared memory and also supports Intel InTru 3D, Quick Sync Video, Clear Video HD, and Intel Insider. For users looking to take advantage of multi-GPUs, the Prime Z390-P supports AMD CrossFireX technology. Using DisplayPort 1.2 MST (Multi-stream transport) compliance, up to three displays can be daisy chained together.
Using the 8-Channel Realtek ALC887 HD audio codec, the Prime Z390-P can support audio with higher fidelity than standard controllers. Audio can also be output using the integrated three 3.5mm audio outputs or S/PDIF output header. Included is an I/O shield, two SATA III 6 Gb/s cables, and two M.2 screw packages. This motherboard is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.
