Intel's new flagship Core i9-11900K processor is here with the new Rocket Lake-S chip being used in the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard and pushed to over 7.3GHz in a new OC record.
GIGABYTE's new Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard was designed with overclocking in mind, with a powerful 12+1 direct phases solution that's capable of pumping 1300 amps with the DrMOS power state design. We also have a VRM that has been designed with a full tantalum capacitor matrix that allows for improved overclocking.
Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division talked about the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard + Core i9-11900K processor being used to push up to 7314MHz, where he said: "By the assistance of engineering design power and management team, GIGABYTE's R&D team is able to turn those wild creativity into mass production".
MSI's new MEG Z590 ACE motherboard was revealed alongside Intel's new 11th Gen Core CPUs -- also known as Rocket Lake-S which are led by the flagship Core i9-11900K processor.
But now we're getting our first look at a new variant of the board with MSI's upcoming MEG Z590 ACE Gold Edition motherboard, which sees the company changing up the color scheme and introducing brushed aluminum and parts of gold throughout the board and its design.
It's the same motherboard as the original dark version, but MSI has dipped it in the new color scheme and it really does look great. With the right components -- G.SKILL's Trident Z Royal DDR4 RAM is an absolute MUST with this motherboard in my opinion -- this motherboard would look fantastic in a gaming PC.
Intel has fionally unleashed its new Rocket Lake-S family of processors with our reviews on the new Intel Core i9-11900K and Intel Core i5-11600K processors live on the site... it's time for some juicy new Z590 motherboards.
The first of which is the ASRock Z590 OC FOrmula motherboard which marks the return of its flagship OC Formula motherboards, with a newly-tweaked overclocker-designed Z590 OC Formula that is ready to rock and roll with Intel's new 11th Gen Core processors.
Chris Lee, general manager of ASRock motherboard business unit explained: "As Intel launches its Z590 chipset to power the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, ASRock once again is your partner in conquering the overclocking world with the Z590 OC Formula".
ASUS teased a few of its Z590-based motherboards earlier this week, with the flagship ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL motherboard now having an approximate cost: it's going to be over $1800.
ASUS revealed the pricing of its Z590 motherboards on its own website, in EUR -- where the flagship ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL motherboard costs 1516 EUR which converts over to $1830. The new ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL motherboard will be available in Q1 2021 according to ASUS.
In comparison, MSI's flagship MEG Z590 GODLIKE motherboard will cost $1200+ while the motherboard under that in the MSI Z590 ACE motherboard will be half that cost. If you want the very best from ASUS in the flagship ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL motherboard then you better have $1800 ready to go.
