ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING – Windows Central

Because this motherboard makes use of AMD’s X570 chipset, it comes with two PCIe 4.0 x4-capable M.2 slots, as well as eight rear USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports. ASUS also led the way by including a Realtek RTL8125 LAN controller, which unlocks speeds of up to 2.5Gbps, if you don’t want to use the included Wi-Fi 6 AX200 from Intel. But just how good is this “gaming” motherboard for AMD PC builds, and is it worth the $300 asking price?

GIGABYTE Z590 VISION G – Tom’s Hardware

Gigabyte’s Z590 Vision G has all the parts you expect from a mid-range motherboard. Features are plentiful, from its unique appearance and distinctive VRM heatsink design to the high-end audio solution. We find an Intel-based 2.5 GbE LAN on the networking side, while on the storage front, there’s an astounding four M.2 sockets (three PCIe 4.0 x4), along with the standard six SATA ports. On the audio side, the Vision G uses the latest premium Realtek ALC4080 codec, supporting DTS:X Ultra.

MSI MAG B560 TOMAHAWK WIFI – Hardware-Inside

The MSI MAG B560 Tomahawk WIFI is currently available in stores at a price of around € 190. The B560 variant also supports PCIe 4.0 and it also has three M.2 connections. The other connection options are also impressive. Regarding the power supply, the temperatures could be lower, but it is more than sufficient. The only small point of criticism is the lack of a BIOS flash button. We give a clear recommendation.

It is flawless. Asus has succeeded with this ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial in bringing together in a single motherboard all that is necessary to meet the expectations of players but also overclockers. The association with EK once again works wonders with a superb water block responsible for keeping all the components cool. The price is justified, it is for us the price of the exclusivity of what is best at Asus.

As far as premium GIGABYTE Z590 models go, the Z590 Aorus Master sits just behind GIGABYTE’s flagship water-cooled Z590 Aorus Xtreme WaterForce and air-cooled Z590 Aorus Xtreme models. Regarding usable and core features, the Z590 Aorus Master has pretty much what you would expect from a mid-premium model. What GIGABYTE does have is plenty to focus on, including a nice aesthetic, with a predominately black PCB, black heatsinks, and black and silver PCIe slot armor, as well as matching M.2 heatsinks.

In order to cope with the long-term high-load overclocking needs of the latest 11th generation Intel Core processors, GIGABYTE has launched a new Z590 AORUS MASTER motherboard, which is upgraded from the 14-phase power supply of the previous generation Z490 to an 18-phase 90A DrMOS power supply design, with up to 1620A CPU current capacity. , With the second-generation Fin-Array stacked fin heat sink with direct-touch 8mm heat pipe, it can provide strong and stable high-performance output and ensure that the VRM module maintains a low operating temperature, making it more advanced overclockers Provides a wealth of auxiliary overclocking functions to meet players’ pursuit of ultimate performance.

MSI B550-A PRO – Hardware-Journal

A quick look under the cooler reveals the build-up of tension. Compared to its predecessor, the manufacturer uses two more virtual or one real phases. Another controller was necessary for this. The IR35201 used is often also used for higher-priced boards. The controlled phases, on the other hand, are of a simpler nature and were already used in the same structure with the B450 model. Each phase consists of 4C029N / 4C024N MOSFETs from ON Semiconductor with 46A. There are a total of 10 of them for the CPU and four for the SoC, whereby two of them are always bundled into one. IR3598 are used as a driver or doppler.

Our heroine is strikingly different from the previous Maximus XII Apex – the design, set and location of certain interfaces, buttons and everything else have been changed. We can safely say that we have a completely new product in front of us, and not just a modified board. Yes, the processor socket has remained the same, but the new 11th generation processors themselves impose completely different requirements not only on the power supply of the board, but must also provide all the new functionality inherent in them.

MSI MEG Z590 ACE – Vortez

From a high-performance model like ACE we expect MSI to go over and above in the features department and for the most part they do deliver. There are voltage checkpoints, EZ Debug LED, onboard power/reset buttons, dual BIOS switch and amplified connectivity such as Thunderbolt 4 which is lovely to see. We also like that ACE can support up to 5400MHz DDR4 and serves up 4x PCIe M.2 SSD slots.

The B560 is around £100 cheaper at the time of review, so while it may not have all the features found on the Z590, it will be nice to see how the performance stacks up from a users point of view. One of the main differences is going to be that the B560 comes with an 8+1 Power Phase design, whereas the Z590 came with a 14+2 design. One of the other things I have noticed is that the B560 model comes with eight USB ports on the rear IO when the Z590 only has seven. One thing is for sure, they definitely have a good few differences despite all the similarities they have.
