MSI must have been chomping at the bit to get the Z490 motherboards out, supporting Intel's latest 10th Generation Core CPU's (socket 1200). MSI's Z490 series utilises some of the most advanced designs MSI have ever engineered.
Their enhanced cooling solution across the whole range means better thermals resulting in better performance. They're offering the M.2 Shield Frozr cooling also, gotta keep that storage cool. They've gone from 6 layers on their PCB to 10, providing more benefit for higher bandwidth application and circuit transmission.
Some of the great included features are 2.5 gigabit ethernet and Wi-Fi 6 AX, you should never have a network problem. Of course it wouldn't be a gaming motherboard without RGB but there's also EZ LED controls for simple on/off control. Installing the I/O shield is a thing of the past also, all motherboards will now feature a pre-installed shield.
It's a pretty big line up too with the MEG Z490 GODLIKE, MPG Z490M GAMING EDGE WIFI, MPG Z490 GAMING EDGE WIFI, MPG Z490 GAMING CARBON WIFI, MEG Z490 ACE, MAG Z490 TOMAHAWK, Z490-A PRO and MPG Z490 GAMING PLUS.
