Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime
Z690 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system,
enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize
ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. Along with taking care of complex
tuning and dynamically optimizing essential aspects of your system, it provides
overclocking profiles that are tailored for your rig.
- Easy Optimization is an
automated tuning utility that enhances overclocking and cooling profiles for
your unique system configuration.
- A stress test feature
allows you to optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.
The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is an intelligent system-tuning utility
that automatically fine-tunes voltages, monitors system stats and adjusts
overclocking parameters for optimal performance.
The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimizes power consumption
and maximizes energy savings with Away mode - a smart setting that creates an
extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
Digital Power Control
The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over
voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings.
It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.
Turbo App allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles,
prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at the app level, so your
system is set up exactly as needed.
