MSI MAG Z690 TOMAHAWK WIFI – Professional Review

Because not all users can afford a 500 euro motherboard for Intel’s new Alder Lake platform , today we bring you the MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WiFi in its DDR5 compatible version (because there is a cheaper DDR4 Tomahawk). A versatile board with good capacity in every way, 16+1+1 phase VRM suitable for overclocking, 4 M.2 slots with heatsinks with 3 of them PCIe 4.0 and good external connectivity with Wi-Fi and USB Gen2x2. Perhaps it is the plaque you are looking for for your New Year’s gift, shall we begin?

MSI MAG Z690 TOMAHAWK WIFI – Overclockers Ukraine

There were no critical flaws in the MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WiFi DDR4, except that I would like more fins on the M.2 heatsinks. The main feature of the board is work with DDR4 memory, which will allow the user to significantly save on the final assembly at the end of 2021. In addition, you will not need to spend a lot of time fine-tuning the RAM, because there is more than enough information and statistics on the network, and Gear 1 mode now masters frequencies at 4000 MHz.

With very solid performance wrapped in a flexible memory choice structure and on a motherboard that might be all-black, but uses many different textures and types of black to still be attractive to the eye, the MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk is a great option for those of you who want to move to the 12th Generation of Intel CPUs and all their features, but without busting the budget. VRM temperatures are excellent too, showing that MSI haven’t compromised the build quality to reach the affordability target.

MSI has clearly targeted a cleaner look with the MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WiFi, and I would say they largely succeeded. The darker color scheme and understated aesthetic reminds me of the MEG UNIFY series of motherboards, instead of the more striking design of the MAG Z590 Tomahawk WiFi. I definitely commend MSI for offering a premium look at a more value-oriented lineup.
