ASUS TUF Gaming Z490-PLUS WiFi Motherboard Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of the TUF Gaming Z490-PLUS WiFi, the company's top TUF Gaming series motherboard for socket LGA1200. The board retains its "yellow+black" color scheme and exuberant product design, and could possibly command a price of around $200, given that Z490 motherboards we've heard of so far appear to start around that price. The board pulls power from a combination of 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS, and an additional 4-pin EPS (which appears to be the base minimum power input configuration for this platform). A 16-phase VRM conditions it for the CPU.

The processor is wired to four DDR4 DIMM slots, and one PCI-Express 3.0 x16. Four other PCIe 3.0 x1 or x4 slots make for the rest of the expansion. Storage connectivity on the TUF Gaming Z490-PLUS WiFi includes two M.2-2280 slots, with PCI-Express 3.0 x4 wiring; and six SATA 6 Gbps ports. Networking connectivity includes 802.11ax WLAN, and one wired Ethernet connection. It is very likely that a near-identical board based on the mid-range B460 chipset is in the works. What sets the two apart is probably CPU overclocking capability.
