The Z590 Vision G may not be aimed towards gamers and overclockers but that doesn’t mean GIGABYTE has left things to chance. So, this time over we see a 13 phase digital VRM design (cooled by their direct-touch heatpipe and fins-array cooling solution), 4 DDR4 DIMM slots (dual-channel configuration – 128GB total supported with speeds up to 4800MHz), 3 full-length (PCIe 4.0 x16/PCIe 3.0 x4/x4 – top is EMI shielded and reinforced), 4 M.2 SSD slots (3xGen4x4/1xGen3x4) complete with thermal guard heatsinks, 6 native SATA 6Gb/s ports (with RAID 0/1/5/10 support), Realtek ALC4080 audio codec, Intel 2.5GbE LAN, VisionLINK output, 5 RGB headers and a Thunderbolt add-in connector (extra TB card required to use this).

ASRock Z590 OC Formula – Chiphell

After the launch of the Z170M OC Formula with dual memory slot design, which was widely loved by overclockers and looked very bold at the time, ASRock’s “OC Formula” (OC Formula, referred to as OCF) series also fell into silence for many years. But with With the end of Intel LGA1151, the LGA 1200 platform has entered a mature stage, and the OCF series has finally returned. The Z590 OC Formula launched this time continues to focus on the dual memory slot design that is conducive to memory overclocking. At the same time, it has returned to domineering and more expandable. The E-ATX large board type.

ASRock Z590 PG Velocita – PC Magazine

The PG Velocita is easily one of the most colorful Z590 boards that we’ve seen to date. Various shades of gray laid over a black PCB with red highlights give the motherboard an eye-catching appearance exaggerated by aRGB lights. It’s more flair than I like, personally, but gamers looking for something flashy to mount behind a tempered-glass panel should be delighted.

This motherboard has three M.2 slots and six SATA 6Gb/s ports, for great storage expandability.  The M2_1 slot is connected directly to the CPU and is able to achieve PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe performance with 11th Gen Intel CPUs.  Otherwise, it will run at PCIe 3.0 with 10th Gen Intel CPUs.  The two other M.2 slots, M2_2 and M2_3 have their lanes pulling from the Z590 chipset and therefore only support up to PCIe 3.0 x4 no matter what.

MSI MPG Z590 GAMING EDGE WIFI – Professional Review

Like the Carbon series, this MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Edge WiFi is one of the boards that knocks on the doors of the high-end range with a slightly more accessible price without giving up a striking aesthetic with RGB and a wide connectivity kit . In it we find 3 M.2 slots, one of them PCIe 4.0, Wi-Fi 6E , an ALC4080 sound card and a 20 Gbps USB Gen2x2 port. To support the more powerful Rocket Lake CPU and OC a good VRM of 14 + 1 + 1 phases of 75A in Double Rail has been equipped that works wonderfully.

This board came out of nowhere and, surprisingly enough, is a rather solid platform. I take points away for Biostar putting Wi-Fi antennas on the board and not providing the $15 CNVI module, so they are actually usable, but nonetheless, this board is outfitted with all the connectivity; including 2.5Gbe and USB 3.2 Gen2x2, that we have seen on all other Z590 platforms.

While only the product name is printed on the front in colorful reflective fonts, on the back we find a brief description of the most important features of the board, such as the flood of buttons and switches in the upper right corner and the optimized 2-DIMM layout, both special optimized for overclocking of CPU and RAM. In addition, the “12 + 1” phases and the tantalum polymer capacitors for the CPU power supply are listed, together with a schematic representation of the IO and a tabular listing of the specifications

MSI MEG Z590 UNIFY-X – Igor’s Lab

The board itself is completely black, with a few silver accents where it could not be avoided. You won’t find integrated RBG lighting here, so you could say that the Unify-Z is darker than the Dark. A large part of the visible area consists of the surfaces of the heat sinks made of black anodized or brushed aluminum, which gives a high-quality impression.

The main PCB is no less busy for the inclusion of the secondary board, with several components in a tightly packed configuration. Along the top is the usual CPU power connector and a pair of fan headers. Down the right side of the board is the 24-pin motherboard connector, a USB Type-C header, a USB 3.0 header, and four SATA 3.0 ports.

MSI MAG Z590-A PRO – Tom’s Hardware

The Z590-A Pro has capable power delivery, three M.2 sockets, 2.5 GbE, six SATA ports, and a unique checkerboard pattern on the PCB. But some sacrifices are inevitable at this price point. On this board specifically, two of the three M.2 sockets do not have a heatsink. The audio codec is dated, and there’s no included Wi-Fi (although there is a Wi-Fi model, for a bit more). But in this price range, these kinds of limitations are to be expected.
