MORE THROUGHPUT, LESS CPU USAGE
TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II features the very latest Intel Ethernet. Intel's LAN has the advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.
Make Your Memory Go Faster
ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing DDR4 memory speeds of 4000MHz with all slots populated — and even beyond!
10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 Onboard
With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps — or twice as fast as USB 3.1 Gen 1!
Intel Optane Memory Ready
Intel® Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
Dual Onboard M.2 & M.2 Heatsink
PERFECTED COOLING FOR UNLEASHING PERFORMANCE
TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II features dual onboard M.2 slots, both operating at X4 PCI Express 3.0 to provide a scintillating 32Gbps of bandwidth. The primary slot is placed below the CPU socket, making use of chassis airflow to keep drive temperatures under control. The second sits below the Z370 chipset and is covered by a heatsink that reduces drive temps by as much as 25?, ensuring peak performance under all scenarios
Flexible Cooling Controls
Optimized Thermal Design
The TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II 's VRM and inductor array is coupled to a large heatsink that has ample surface area to deal with the thermals of Intel's latest processors.
