With the new Z590 motherboards we're happy to see these will maintain support Intel’s current 10th Gen Core processors, while still being ready for all of the next-gen features of the upcoming 11th Gen Core CPU code-named Rocket Lake. With powerful new processors needing plenty of juice to reach their full potential, the Z590 has been designed to support sustained performance that's ready for the most demanding overclocking enthusiasts.
Looks wise, the new ASUS Z590 lineup is looking really wonderful too, with all the new versions coming in ROG, STRIX, TUF & PRIME aesthetics, and we're in for a cutting-edge build experience no matter what style we prefer.
ASUS Z590 motherboards will offer up to 16 lanes of PCI Express 4.0 connectivity direct when used with an 11th gen processor, delivering up to 32GB/s of bandwidth for today’s monster graphics cards. The Z590 platform also taps four dedicated PCIe 4.0 lanes from the processor for maximum performance with the latest solid-state drives - such great news for anyone planning a new build!
Via Asus: On all of these enthusiast-friendly motherboards, our latest VRM cooling approach transforms the I/O shroud from a primarily cosmetic polymer element to a massive alloy shroud that’s fully integrated with the rest of the motherboard cooling system for lower VRM temperatures than ever. Our Prime Z590 motherboards also stand ready for 11th Gen Core CPUs with expanded VRM heatsinks covering all of their power-delivery circuitry.
Looking specifically at the new ROG Maximus XIII Hero we have a glimpse at the new generation of Wi-Fi which operates on the 6GHz spectrum, the first we've seen in the wireless networking airspace. This is cutting edge tech, but once Wi-Fi 6E devices are approved for operation by regulatory bodies, ROG Maximus XIII Hero Z590 motherboard WiFi will be ready to take advantage of this new technology thanks to integrated Wi-Fi 6E-ready wireless NICs!
