Be it video editing, graphic design, audio editing, VFX, or anything in between, this motherboard is ASUS’ one-stop solution for all creative works out there.

Asus ProArt Z690-Creator Gaming Motherboard Review
CPU Support, Memory, and Storage:
This motherboard was carefully crafted to maximize the potential of the Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs with an Intel LGA1700 socket. For lightning-fast creativity, it comes with PCle 5.0 and 4 PCle 4.0 M.2 slots. Data transfer, multitasking, loading up, and using heavy-functioning applications has never been easier. Hence, in this motherboard, you also get USB 3.2 and future-proof external connectivity with 2 Thunderbolt ports.
What’s more, for creatives with graphics-heavy needs, multiple GPU support is also provided.
With ASUS DDR5 Performance Boost, the extra potential is tapped out of all RAM modules for that final push.
Power Delivery and Design:
Since this laptop is not aimed at gamers, the advantage is seen in requiring lower power delivery to maintain a high level of functioning. As such, it comes with 16+1 power stages designed to maximize efficiency from the 12th Gen Intel processors.
Given the lower power rating and highly efficient design, it is no surprise that the cooling requirements, even at a high level of functioning are not extremely high. Even then, ASUS provides more than enough cooling solutions, with a VRM heatsink, triple M.2 heatsinks, and a dedicated chipset heatsink. All this is assisted by AI cooling, making the system efficient and as smooth as possible. You can focus on your creative process without worrying about CPU temperatures – ASUS will monitor that for you.
Being creative means constantly needing to have the fastest, most reliable network connectivity. For seamless internet connection, this motherboard comes with 10GB and 2.5GB LAN, onboard WiFi 6E, and AI support for efficient bandwidth management. All this means you can transfer your biggest files to other creatives or clients with ease and reliability.
Importantly, there is also support for 2 display ins and an HDMI 2.1 out, delivering 4k resolution at 60 fps.
Most creative pursuits require best-in-class audio. Not only this, but creativity means communicating in constant video conferences, and meetings. The ASUS ProArt Z690-Creator Wifi takes care of these things for you, with audio support provided by Realtek S1220A and AI noise cancellation, filtering out unnecessary noise from audio going out and coming in, for the smoothest communication experience possible.
