ASRock Z590 Extreme – Guru3D

As mentioned, the ASRock Z590 EXTREME is a product aimed at the value segment; at 200 USD, you get roughly the same performance as the premium board. However, compromises come at more limited features. Just three M2 slots, an ALC1220 audio CODEC, the lack of Thunderbolt and WIFI are among them. However, you still get that baseline performance and plenty of connectivity, as well as a 2.5 GigE Ethernet (Dragon RTL8125BG). The dark-looking and themed motherboard can be customized LEDs-wise. The motherboard offers your typical x16 PCI-Express slots (with Rocket lake x16 Gen 4.0 lanes are supported), good outfitted rear IO, and LED configurable options.

Coming in at $100 US cheaper than the Vision D, the Vision G sacrifices significant “creator “features like Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi6 to reach its $279.99 MSRP. GIGABYTE does try to make up for it with an attractive aesthetic, and add-ons like VisionLink that enable Pen Displays like the Cintiq from Wacom to pull up to 60w of power, along with its video signal and data through a single USB-C cable.

Not all is bad with the Vision G; it’s a solid board with an ample power design that can capably handle the top level 11900K Processor’s needs. Additionally, it offers a ton of USB 3.2 connectivity both on the rear I/O and front panel chassis connections.

ASRock Z590 Taichi – Vortez

At the high-end of the Intel Z590 range, the assortment of motherboards tend to offer similar feature-sets but the Taichi steps away from the crowd to offer up Thunderbolt 4 and we’re really impressed they decided to include this. This technology futureproofs the motherboard and gives access to 40 Gbps storage bandwidth. Taichi also delivers plenty of USB 3.2, up to three M.2 slots and of course PCIe 4.0 functionality (provided a Rocket Lake CPUs is being used).

ASUS TUF GAMING Z590-PLUS WIFI – GreenTech_Reviews

The delivery set, traditionally for these boards, is minimal – a user manual, a quality certificate, branded stickers on the battery, a disk with drivers, a pair of SATA cables and screws for fixing M.2 drives with gaskets for single-sided models. An external antenna for the pre-installed Intel Wi-Fi 6 module is located in a separate package.

The design of TUF motherboards varies from model to model. In our case, it is a black and gray color scheme with rare yellow accents. It is based on a 6-layer PCB that is very close to black. Changes are immediately noticeable regarding the number of expansion slots, the type of cooling for M.2 drives, the power subsystem and its cooling system.

ASRock Z590 Taichi – HardwareCooking

This Taichi is as always on a standard ATX format. Here we are therefore on the new Intel Z590 chipset which is based on the LGA1200 socket. The card is therefore not only compatible with 11th generation CPUs, but also with 10th generation CPUs such as i9-10900K or i5-10600K to name a few. Memory level, the card is able to manage up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory on four arrays at a frequency of 5000 MHz. At the level of the power supply stage, we find as the announcement the company 14 phases of power supplies Dr. Mos SPS (12 + 2 in reality) with Renesas ISL99390 of 90A.
