SuperMicro SuperO C9Z490-PGW / PG: Physical Review – Steve’s Hardware

Don’t let its 6+2 phase VRM fool you, the C9Z490-PGW is loaded with high quality parts that are capable of taking your CPU to a very comfortable overclock without much hassle. The level of quality of the motherboard ensures excellent performance as well. The PEX8747 and the 10Gbit NIC are very nice additions, and pretty much make this a mixture between a high-end gaming/enthusiast motherboard and a workstation product.

SuperMicro SuperO C9Z490-PGW

Supermicro is one of the most recognizable brands in the server and workstation market. Still, as we saw in our review of the C9Z390-PGW, Supermicro is consistently injecting its ‘server’ grade DNA into its desktop models. The difference between Z390 and Z490 isn’t as stark as it could be, with the main attribute coming in the way of networking support, with an integrated Wi-Fi 6 MAC, which allows users to utilize CNVi modules.

SuperMicro X12SAE

For every current W480 model on the market, there are at least 4-5 Z490 variants, which makes Intel’s workstation platform slim pickings for choice.

Not all motherboards are created equal. Compared to consumer hardware, prosumer level options with workstations opt for different peripheral features, but ultimately it comes down to support. The Supermicro X11SPA-T is a single socket workstation motherboard with a range of high-end features, designed to support both Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs and Xeon-W 3200 series CPUs, but its focus is with the workstation hardware on the C621 chipset.

Supermicro H11SSL-NC Rev 2

It is not often at STH that we test a specific revision of a motherboard. Our Supermicro H11SSL-NC Rev 2 is one of those rare occasions. The “Rev 2” indicates that it is an updated platform capable of taking the AMD EPYC 7002 Series “Rome” processors. All of the H11SSL-NC motherboards being produced today should say Rev 2.00 as our review unit does.
