Since the "Comet Lake-S" processors require a new socket due to the optimized power supply, the Intel Socket LGA1200 is used on the 400 series mainboards. Despite the increased number of pins, the actual size of the socket remains the same with older sockets, so that CPU coolers for socket LGA 115x can also be mounted on the mainboard.

The features of the ASUS PRIME Z490M-PLUS motherboard at a glance:
- 2x PCIe (3.0) x16 (x16, x4) / 2x PCIe x1
- 3x USB 3.1 (1x Type A, 1x Type C / 1x Header)
- A total of 6x USB 3.0 (4x external / 2x internal) and 6x USB 2.0 (internal / external)
- 2x M.2 (1x PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA & 1x PCIe 3.0 x4) / 6x SATA 6G
- Supports max. 128 GB DDR4 RAM up to 4,400 MHz
- With RGB LED header and 5x 4-pin fan connections
- With fast Gbit LAN

The ASUS PRIME Z490M-PLUS in detail
The ASUS PRIME Z490M-PLUS mainboard in the ATX form factor offers two PCIe-x16 slots and two PCIe-x1 slots for plug-in and expansion cards. One x16 slot is connected with a full 16 lanes, the other with four lanes. As a mid-range motherboard, the ASUS PRIME Z490M-PLUS also supports multi-GPU setups via AMD Crossfire / XDMA. A header for RGB strips enables the connection of further RGB LED components.

Up to 128 GB DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode can be used in the four DIMM slots. The Z490 chipset supports clock speeds up to 2,933 MHz, but the OC enables the ASUS PRIME Z490M-PLUS to operate RAM kits with up to 4,400 MHz! Two M.2 slots for PCIe / SATA-M.2 SSDs and six SATA-6G connections enable data storage media to be connected. Both M.2 slots are connected to the chipset with four PCIe lanes and support the NVMe protocol, which enables data transfer rates of just under 4 GB / s. This makes M.2 PCIe SSDs up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs!

The ASUS PRIME Z490M-PLUS has a USB 3.1 port on the I / O panel with a Type-C socket. This innovative USB Type-C port is particularly thin and can be inserted on both sides. USB 3.1 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 achieves maximum speeds of 10 Gbit / s per port and USB ports with this standard generally support the quick charging function of smartphones and tablets. In addition to the USB / 3.1 port of type A and two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, there is also a DisplayPort, an HDMI and a DVI-D port on the I / O panel . Internally, the mainboard provides a large selection of connections and headers.
