ASRock Z590 Taichi – ThinkComputers

With the Z590 chipset ASRock of course has a Z590 Taichi motherboard. The whole idea behind the Taichi series since it launched was to give you the consumer as many features as possible at a reasonable price. We’ve reviewed quite a few Taichi motherboards and all of them have delivered on that promise. The Z590 Taichi brings with it all of the features you would expect from the Z590 chipset, but also adds in some exclusive ASRock features as well. You get a 14-phase power design, dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, USB 3.2 gen 2×2 support, three NVMe slots, and Killer 2.5G LAN as well as Killer 802.11ax WiFi.

ASRock Z590 Taichi – PC Perspective

Positioned below the Z590 OC Formula in ASRock’s current Intel Z590 lineup, this latest Taichi builds on the Z490 version that we looked at last year. Besides the distinctive styling, the Z590 Taichi offers robust power delivery, a trio of Intel Killer networking products, the latest in high-speed connectivity including Thunderbolt 4, and what should be some impressive audio with both Realtek ALC1220 (rear multi-channel) and ESS ES9218 (front panel stereo) DACs.

ASRock Z590 Taichi – Guru3D

This product from the already well-known series (Taichi means Chinese martial art) focuses on bringing many features at a reasonable price. Well, it was like that till now. Why’s that? There’s about a 30 USD premium over the predecessor, the Asrock Z490 Taichi, an improved appearance, and a great-looking moving gear feature. This board targets the upper mid-tier/high-end range of the market (with a price of 459.99 USD). The Asus Maximus XIII Hero, MSI MEG Z590 Ace (which are about 40 USD more expensive), and the Aorus Z590 Master (which is cheaper) are the main competitors. Still, Asrock also has the Phantom Gaming, Extreme, Steel Legend, and Pro series, so you can choose whichever tier suits you. I almost forgot about one model -> Z590 OC Formula; this is the top tier of AsrockBut coming back to the reviewed model – the design of the Asrock Z590 Taichi is beautiful.
