  • Bring on the Rings
    The “Ring” is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Though of unknown origin, Rings can be found everywhere on earth and other places beyond time and space, as well as motherboards!
  • Unique themes
    Besides the motherboard outlook is designed around the Sonic the Hedgehog theme, the ASRock Z790 PG SONIC also features a SONIC-inspired UEFI BIOS interface.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog pattern
    On the PCB back side you’ll even catch a glimpse of Sonic mid-run.
  • 14+1+1 phase design with dr.MOS
    Featuring sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.
  • 2 OZ copper PCB
    2 ounce copper inner layers that provide stable signal traces and power shapes! Delivering lower temperature and higher energy efficiency for overclocking.
  • Lightning gaming ports
    Aimed for die hard gamers and enthusiasts! Lightning gaming ports are sourced from two different controller interfaces that assist gamers in connecting the high speed mice/keyboard with the lower jitter and latency!
  • Blazing M.2 PCIe Gen5 x4
    Accommodates the PCI Express 5.0 standard to perform twice the bandwidth compared to previous generation, with a breathtaking 128 Gb/s transfer speed.
  • Multi-layer M.2 heatsink
    Lower the temperature of your high-speed SSD to perform better and more stably.
  • Anti-drop screw design
    Tired of dropping screws or screws missing inside chassis? The enhanced M.2 heatsink with anti-drop screw design makes installation process more easily and eliminates risk of missing screw and could be installed easily.
  • PCIe 5.0 + Surface-mount tech
    Compares to conventional DIP style PCIe slot, the SMT type PCIe slot improves signal flow and maximize stability under high speed, a key breakthrough to fully support the lighting speed of the PCIe 5.0 standard.
  • DDR5 memory
    The reinforced DIMM slot is surfaced mounted onto the motherboard to give better physical strength as well as a more stable memory signal, with this superior revolutionary design, it is able to dramatically overclock DRAM module insane frequency.
  • DIY friendly design
    Due to the unique electrical architecture of DDR5 DIMM, there’s a high risk of damaging the memory module if AC power isn’t disconnected properly during removal or installation. To prevent this, ASRock has implemented a trouble free protection circuit on every DDR5 motherboard, lowers the risk of damaging your memory module.
  • DDR5 XMP and EXPO support
    Derived from the “built for stable and reliable” designing concept, ASRock does not compromise on any details. Z790 PG SONIC is built with 6-Layer PCB, 2 OZ copper inner layer design, enthusiasts are able to enjoy the boost of DDR5 memory overclocking performance by enabling the pre-tested profiles. Make sure the memory modules are Intel XMP/AMD EXPO / capable and overclocking can be made so affordable, satisfying and absolutely no sweat at all.
