ASRock is the latest to unveil its new family of Intel 500-series motherboards, led by the flagship ASRock Z590 Taichi motherboard.
Right out of the gate you can see the unique and super-slick design work that ASRock has crafted with the Z590 Taichi motherboard, something it offers "uncompromised performance" with. Inside you've got the very latest USB4 standard with Thunderbolt 4 technology offering 40Gbps of bandwidth.
You've got support for Intel's new 11th Gen Core CPUs with the new 8-core, 16-thread flagship Core i9-11900K processor ripe for the ASRock Z590 Taichi motherboard. For gamers, ASRock promises its Lightning Gaming Ports that "uniquely use custom engineered USB signal lanes to accommodate the latest gaming mice with ultra-high polling rates; whereas traditional USB signal design cannot fully support this high report rate gaming peripheral therefore limits performance".
EVGA has just detailed two of its next-gen Z590 motherboards, ready for Intel's just-announced 11th Gen Core CPUs led by the flagship Core i9-11900K processor.
EVGA has really tuned these motherboards as expected, where EVGA has actually "designed and engineered these new motherboards from scratch". That's a big feat for a detail-oriented company, which I'm sure excites enthusiasts like myself to have a very keen eye on EVGA's new Z590 motherboard offerings.
BIOSTAR will be announcing its new family of Intel 500-series chipset motherboards later today, with the introduction of the Z590 RACING GTA, Z560 RACING GTQ, Z590 VALKYRIE, and Z590I VALKYRIE.
The one of interest here from BIOSTAR is the new VALKYRIE motherboard, which will be a new series that looks to stand a little higher than the current RACING family of boards that BIOSTAR has in its roster. We will have the full introduction to the boards in the next couple of hours.

This is the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL, which the company has designed as an ultra-premium enthusiast motherboard with a pre-installed monoblock. It's a huge motherboard if you haven't noticed, with the MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL coming in the huge E-ATX form factor.
This is the ASUS ROG Maximus III HERO, where we have dual 8-pin EATX12V connectors, so expect this motherboard to have some juicy overclocking on the Rocket Lake-S flagship processor in the Core i9-11900K.
BIOSTAR is preparing a new range of motherboards that will launch alongside Intel's new Rocket Lake-S 11th Gen Core processors, known as Valkyrie.
The company tweeted out the new image, teasing "Give new wings to..." and didn't finish the sentence. The wings that they've teased are from the Valkyrie in Norse mythology. It's a very cool way of teasing everyone, and I can't wait to see how it looks.
As for what to expect, BIOSTAR should unveil and release at least two new motherboards in the new Valkyrie series based on Intel's new Z590 chipset. There will be the BIOSTAR Z590 Valkyrie and BIOSTAR Z590I Valkyrie motherboards, offered in ATX and Mini-ITX, respectively.
GIGABYTE this week released new BIOS updates for its x470 and B450 motherboard lineup that adds support for AMD's Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. It's too bad that you can't buy the processors.
AMD launched the Zen 3 architecture with its Ryzen 5000 series CPUs last month. At launch, only the newest boards equipped with AMD's x570 and B550 chipsets received support for the latest CPUs on launch day.
AMD said that BIOS updates for older x470 and B450 chipsets would come in the new year, but GIGABYTE didn't wait that long to add support for the latest CPUs on its older boards. BIOS version F60 is available now, and with it, you can drop one of AMD's shiny new Ryzen 5 5600x, Ryzen 7 5800x, Ryzen 9 5900x, or Ryzen 9 5950x CPUs into your board.
