ASUS ProArt Z690-CREATOR WIFI – APH Networks

Today’s review unit of the ASUS ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi arrived from ASUS’ offices in Newark, California. Traveling with FedEx and their 2Day International service, this box arrived in excellent condition with no real areas of concern. Inside, we have quite a bit of packing paper to ensure the contents are protected while inside. In addition to the motherboard, ASUS sent us their ZenWiFi AX Hybrid mesh router, which my colleague Jonathan Kwan will be taking a look at later on.

ASUS ProArt Z690-CREATOR WIFI – PC Inquisitor

Little on the hardware side to differentiates the $480 ProArt Z690 Creator WiFi from a $600 gaming motherboard such as ASRock’s previously-reviewed Taichi, but even minor interface changes are as important as the difference in price. We still start off with three x16-length slots on the surface, and the I/O panel still filled with dual networking plus Bluetooth-equipped WiFi 6E, six USB3 Type A ports, and two USB Type-C ports that are fed by Intel’s JHL8540 Thunderbolt 4 controller . The Creator’s additional Displayport throughputs for connecting discrete graphics to Thunderbolt 4 outputs merely reduces the number of cables that a few users would otherwise have strung across their desks.

ASUS Z690 & B660 Roundup – Tech Testers

The cheapest ASUS board that passed us was the B660-Creator D4 with a price tag of 235 euros. ASUS is known to be a bit more expensive, and we can understand that in part as their bios and software experience is generally just a bit better than the rest. But B660 boards in this segment struggle with mid-range Z690 boards that often go a bit further with features.

ASUS ProArt Z690-CREATOR WIFI – El Chapuzas Informatico

The Asus ProArt Z690-Creator WiFi starts from the premise that a content creator needs the best connectivity for external devices and networks. With this in mind, it integrates two rear USB-C 3.2 Gen2x2 ports compatible with Thunderbolt and DisplayPort , as well as a front one and numerous USB 3.2 ports . The mix of networks is also exceptional with a 10 GbE , another 2.5 GbE and a Wi-Fi 6E with BT 5.2. For the rest, it is not a motherboard that attracts too much attention, since its design is quite sober and elegant and the rest of the features are in the average of the Z690 with DDR5.
