The first Intel Rocket Lake Z590 motherboard looks like an overclocking beast

Furthermore, it has in excess of a couple of overhauls from the past gen.

Meet the Gigabyte Z590 AORUS Xtreme, the main Intel Rocket Lake 500-arrangement motherboard to show up in front of dispatch. This Gigabyte board (revealed by Videocardz) is the absolute first to have surfaced, but at the same time it’s probably going to be one of the top SKUs accessible when the remainder of its kind do at long last dispatch close by the most recent Intel CPUs throughout the following not many months.

This super premium motherboard is said to come outfitted with 21+1 stage computerized VRM with 100A force arranges, a darn sight more than its immediate archetype (the Z490), which pressed simply 16+1. Thunderclap 4 network gives it one more edge, alongside extra computerized power stages for a significantly cool encounter. Also both 10GbE and 2.5GbE Ethernets ports, just as Wi-Fi 6E limits.

With PCIe Gen4 selective to Rocket Lake CPUs on Intel’s side, two of the three PCIe x16 spaces on the Z590 will uphold Gen4, alongside two of the three M.2 openings. That implies more paths and data transfer capacity for your arrangement. At present just some Z490s accompany PCIe 4 help for Rocket Lake, however expect some more standard Rocket Lake motherboards to flaunt this innovation in future.

Truth be told, a tweet from Komachi_Ensaka subtleties a portion of the other motherboards in the 500-arrangement line-up, some of which will be more reasonable, and which are all prone to help PCIe Gen4, yet expect some reduced usefulness as you drop down the line. All are set to accompany the LGA 1200 attachment, nonetheless, a similar one found on existing 400-arrangement motherboards for Intel’s Comet Lake chips.


Be that as it may, back on the Z590 AORUS Xtreme, not exclusively is it the world’s first Rocket Lake motherboard, it’s likewise the primary affirmed use of the so far unannounced Realtek ALC4080 sound codec, replacement to the ALC1220 codec. Bunches of things to get amped up for with this one at that point.

In any case, for this brand new usefulness, don’t anticipate that it should be a take. As the leader of Gigabyte’s 500-arrangement, the Z590 AORUS Xtreme motherboard will probably go discounted for something in overabundance of $600, without a doubt more than the current cost of its Z490s.
