MSI MEG Z590 ACE – TweakTown

The Z590 ACE looks to repeat, with a full-featured platform that includes some rather stunning specifications. At the top of this list is, of course, support for PCIe Gen 4.0 coming from the 11th Generation Rocket Lake processors. That said, this platform is an in socket upgrade for consumers with 10th Gen that may want to grab a board now and processor down the road. The chipset is Intel Z590, and the power design is an impressive 16+2 using 90A phases on the VCore and 75A on SoC.

MSI MEG Z590 ACE – Digit

We see the same colour scheme on the MEG Z590 ACE as we did on the MSI MEG Z490 ACE. The same black and gold aesthetic with a slightly different style language is used here. The packaging holds no punches in screaming out about PCIe Gen 4.0. The RGB elements have been toned down comparatively. We have a new RGB dragon logo on the rear I/O shroud and another one tacked onto the PCH heatsink. That being said, all the connectors for the different RGB ecosystems are all present so no matter which RGB ecosystem you go with, you should be able to make it work without any trouble.
