MSI Z590 motherboards to get enhanced power and PCIe 4.0 support


Micro-Star International (MSI) is ready to launch new Intel Rocket Lake-S processors and is going to present at least three motherboards based on the senior Z590 chipset during CES 2021: MEG Z590 Godlike, MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi and MAG Z590 Tomahawk WiFi. It is very likely that the manufacturer is also preparing solutions based on the lower versions of the Intel 500 series system logic.

The company’s flagship solution will be the E-ATX motherboard MEG Z590 Godlike. It is distinguished from its predecessor by a changed appearance, as well as a reinforced power subsystem. The official specifications of the board are still unknown, but it looks like the new product will receive a 20-phase VRM system, built according to the 18 + 1 + 1 scheme. For comparison, the predecessor based on the Z490 chipset uses a 16 + 1 + 1 power supply system.

The MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi and MAG Z590 Tomahawk WiFi also get updated power systems and a different look for decorative and cooling elements.

It is very likely that the formal presentation of MSI’s new products will take place shortly after the official announcement of the new 11th generation Intel processors, as well as the new sets of system logic 500 series. Recall that one of the most important features of Intel’s new products will be full support for the PCI Express 4.0 interface, which has appeared in Rocket Lake-S chips. At the same time, motherboards based on 500-series chipsets will receive an LGA 1200 processor socket, thanks to which they will be able to work with the current 10th generation Comet Lake-S processors.
