ASUS TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS WIFI D4 – Tom’s Hardware

At $289.99, the Asus TUF Gaming Z690-Plus WIFI D4 is a solid option for a more-affordable Alder Lake build, with DDR4 support, four M.2 sockets, 2.5 GbE and integrated Wi-Fi 6, an updated appearance and capable power delivery. This is an excellent low-priced option unless you need more than four SATA ports and six USB Type-A ports on the rear IO.

ASUS TUF Gaming Z690-Plus WIFI D4 is a powerful and functional motherboard with nice bonuses (we mean the updated Wi-Fi module and the presence of a PCI-E x4 connector), but with an impressive baggage of optimization problems. These are difficulties with overclocking memory, and a periodically flickering screen when starting a PC, and mediocre work of automation, which usually saves user time in the process of setting up / overclocking the system. We believe that the developers will solve these issues with the help of the latest firmware.

ASUS TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS WIFI D4 – Overclockers Russia

ASUS boards have holes for both standards, but in the case of LGA 1200, you need to make sure of the clamping force. The processor itself did not become higher or lower, but most likely the socket itself became a little lower and the processor substrate became thinner. All these are microns, but you need to take into account even them, so it is better to once again just make sure of the strength of the clamping, and somewhere, if really the edge, slip a copper plate. Double holes for mounts are even on the top boards such as ASUS Maximus Z690 Hero.

The ASUS TUF Gaming Z690-Plus WiFi D4 is one of the boards I’ve been most excited to actually test for this launch. Sure, the more extreme models are cool, but realistically, I’m more likely to buy the TUF Gaming version myself. It’s well enough equipped, with a 14+1 DrMOS Power Stage 80A design, which should be more than enough to hit big boost clocks on the new CPUs from Intel. You get the latest PCIe 5.0 interface, four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, the latest Intel WiFi 6 and Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet, a good mixture of the latest USB technologies, and a Thunderbolt 4 header (on the motherboard, not the rear I/O).

ASUS TUF Gaming Z690-Plus WiFi D4 is based on a 6-layer PCB made in the standard ATX format (305 x 244 mm). “Standard” is a praise. Recently, board builders have come to love making unusual board geometries. And all would be fine, but sometimes the attachment points are cut off, and sometimes in critical places in the area of ​​the RAM slots. In this regard, the model in question is ok. The board is mounted on 9 points, there are no weak points.

The delivery set, traditionally for these boards, is minimal – a user manual, a quality certificate, branded stickers on the battery, a disk with drivers, a pair of SATA cables and screws for fixing M.2 drives with gaskets for single-sided models. An external antenna for the pre-installed Intel Wi-Fi 6 module is located in a separate bag.
