ASRock Z590 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB4 – TweakTown

Internal connectivity includes three SATA 6Gb/s ports alongside one Ultra M.2 (Gen3) and one Hyper M.2(Gen4). Networking consists of the full complement from Killer with the AX1675x WiFi6e module and E3100G 2.5Gbe controller.

Rear I/O has a solid complement of USB 3.2 ports next to the Thunderbolt 4 port that is also fully compliant with USB 4.0 at 40Gbps. We also have dual display outputs with HDMI and DP alongside RJ45 2.5Gbe and WiFi6e antennas. Audio is handled by the extremely popular Realtek ALC1220 with a complete set of 3.5mm input/outputs at the bottom.

The changes that took place between ASUS TUF Gaming Z490-PLUS WiFi and ASUS TUF Gaming Z590-PLUS WiFi can hardly be called significant, apart from the issue of the chipset itself, of course, the exact characteristics of which can be found in the next paragraph. The ASUS TUF family of motherboards has undergone radical changes over the course of many years, but is currently sticking to the proven course of the second iteration of the LGA 1151 platform and Intel Z270 chipsets.

GIAGBYTE X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI – Windows Central

The latest Gigabyte AORUS Pro Wi-Fi Mini-ITX motherboard for team Red comes rocking the X570 chipset. It’s the same compact design you’d expect from a motherboard of this form factor, allowing for the installation within SFF chassis. It can also take AMD’s Ryzen 3000 or 5000 processors and two DDR4 DIMM models for a total of 64GB.

This benchmark is based on the classic ROG MAXIMUS XIII Extreme. With one difference, the presence of a monoblock bundle. This one also bears the reference EK-Quantum Momentum ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial D-RGB Plexi . We are on a motherboard with an LGA1200 socket on the Intel Z590 chipset . It is therefore able to accommodate Intel Core processors such as the Rocket Lake-S: i9-11900K and the i5-11600K that we tested as well as 10th generation CPUs such as the i9-10900K or the i5-10600K . It accepts DDR4 memory up to a frequency of 5333 MHz (OC) for a total capacity of 128 GB on four slots. Good point, the rear connection offers two Thunderbolt 4 ports.

EVGA Z590 DARK – Tom’s Hardware

The performance of the Z590 Dark through all our tests was about average, which isn’t a bad thing. It excelled on some tests, like in the PCMark 10 Suite and gaming, while 7Zip and LAME results were a bit slower than average. If you set the RAM to 1:1 (it defaults to 1:2 at DDR4 3600), some of the results were a bit faster. In all, the Dark is a good-performing board. Once tweaked (offset removed), it’s as fast as any other board out there. Our Intel Core i9-11900K CPU reached 5.1 GHz (thermally limited) with ease, and it ran our DDR4 4000 sticks without flinching. Like the other overclocking boards, the EVGA Z590 Dark begs to push your hardware to the limit.

GIGABYTE X570S AERO G – Tom’s Hardware

In terms of performance, the Aero G was about average overall. In some tests it excelled, such as Corona, Cinebench and POV-Ray (multi-core), while in others ran slower, such as compression for 7Zip or the LAME results. Memory bandwidth was above average, but the latency was slightly higher. Power use on the Aero G was the highest we’ve seen so far, but only by a couple of watts.

EVGA Z590 DARK – TweakTown

With EVGA’s shortened Z590 lineup, the Dark represents their top-end platform. That is unless they decide to unveil a higher SKU such as a “Kingpin” edition in the near future, but I find that unlikely with 12th Gen Intel platforms right around the corner. Back to the Dark, the latest platform from EVGA ushers in some mighty specs for enthusiasts wanting to push their 11900K or any 11th Gen desktop CPU to the max; this includes a 21-phase power design alongside a much better set of connectivity options that include dual 2.5Gbe, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 and NVMe U.2.

Today we will be presenting the X570S AORUS Master from Gigabyte! There is always a bunch to cover when doing a motherboard review. These reviews tend to be very long and contain a ton of information. We always try and test every aspect of the board, even storage speeds. Each board has its limitations and it a good idea to test each part and relay that information to you guys. Now your mileage may vary, of course due to chip quality and a plethora of other things. The X570S is going to work even with AMD 2000 Series chips.

EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI – TweakTown

The EVGA Z590 FTW supports both 10th and 11th Gen CPUs and is based on the Intel Z590 chipset. This is a four-DIMM motherboard that supports DDR4-2133 through 5100MHz with an overclock alongside XMP, max capacity 128GB.

Expansion is handled with two PCIe x16 slots and one PCIe x4, while three M.2 slots handle storage in concert with six SATA 6GB/s ports. USB 3.2 is available both on the rear I/O with six ports and internal headers adding four additional.
