ASUS ROG Z590 Motherboard Round-Up – KitGuru

The ROG STRIX Z590-E Gaming WiFi is the one board in particular that I liked from this round-up. The overall hardware choices are sensible, the design is attractive yet functional, and there are quality innovation touches such as the tool-less M.2 retention clip.

I feel like the downgraded power delivery solution and overclocking features versus the Hero are a non-issue to most users. And the lack of TB4 will likely be irrelevant to many non-productivity buyers. The bigger positive is the price reduction of around £120 versus the Hero while ASUS is still offering a quality board overall.

The ASUS ROG STRIX Z590-I Gaming WiFi is a compact power house featuring a robust 10-phase VRM with top of the line power stages and a substantial VRM cooling solution. BIOS flashback has also been included, as well as ASUS’s excellent BIOS designed to provide an optimal, stress-free overclocking experience. The ASUS ROG STRIX Z590-I Gaming WiFi also offers great connectivity with WiFi 6, 2.5 Gb/s Ethernet, and Thunderbolt 4. All of this performance is packed into an ITX form factor with some clever engineering to make it all fit.

Mini-ITX Z590 Roundup – Tom’s Hardware

In our testing, all boards performed well, easily mixing in with our other test results, including full-size and more-expensive options. Out of the box, the ASRock board is the most hamstrung by Intel’s power limits, while the other boards tend to run a bit more free in comparison. But all you need to do to get the ASRock up to par with the other boards is to raise its power limits. The performance difference was negligible outside of the long-running tests, where the turbo time/limits come into play. Gaming performance was similar among all the boards, as was memory bandwidth and latency testing. Outside of a couple of outliers, all boards performed similarly, especially when the playing field was leveled by removing the stock limits.

Intel 11th generation processors required motherboard manufacturers to implement a little more functionality and change the power subsystem in their solutions. For full-size motherboards, this is not a problem, but interest is attracted by the most compact motherboards on the market – in the mini-ITX format, the available space for the flight of engineering thought is very limited. In this article, we will get acquainted with the variant from ASUS of the ROG STRIX series – Z590-I Gaming WiFi.

There’s not a whole lot of included accessories in the box, but it should be just enough for most people. Alongside our manuals and driver CD, we have some stickers which hopefully some of will be useful, our WIFI antenna, some SATA cables, Zip ties, RGB splitter and a lovely little front panel extender that will plug directly into the motherboard, then we can plug our power/reset button cables and the likes into it. This will make our lives much easier especially as this is an ITX board and once you’ve got your RAM, GPU and CPU cooler installed, there generally isn’t a whole lot of finger room to go plugging stuff in.
