The ASRock Z790 PG Riptide is named after a specific kind of water current with strong waves that occurs in the ocean, representing the philosophy of sea’s double-side, calm and unlimited strength. Built around powerful gaming-related features, the ASRock Z790 PG Riptide has given a powerful smash and immersed users in the sense of stability.
The ASRock Z790 PG Riptide features 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. The 6 Layer PCB provides stable signal traces and power shapes delivering lower temperature and higher energy efficiency for memory overclocking! Thus, it’s able to support the latest memory modules with most extreme memory performance!
DDR5 XMP & EXPO Support
Derived from the “built for stable and reliable” designing concept, ASRock does not compromise on any details. The ASRock Z790 PG Riptide is built with low-loss materials, enthusiasts are able to enjoy the boost of DDR5 memory overclocking performance up to 6800MHz and beyond 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.
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 ASRock Z790 PG Riptide motherboard, lowers the risk of damaging your memory module.
