Z390 Gaming Edge AC Circuit Analysis Continued
The audio solution consists of a Realtek ALC1220 rated up to 120dB and supports an integrated headphone AMP, MSI added a Texas Instruments OP1652 amplifier for the internal front panel header and Nippon Chemicon audio capacitors and a physical PCB divide.
We get an i219v PHY for the Gbit LAN. The WIFI is from Intel's Wireless AC 9462, which is a 1x1 controller rated up to 433Mbps.
MSI is using On Semiconductor NB7NPQ1004 dual port USB 3.1 10Gbps re-driver for the rear USB 3.1, and a Texas Instruments HDS3220 type-C controller. We find the same combination for the internal USB 3.1 type-C header.
The GL850G is a USB 2.0 hub used to expand the internal USB 2.0 headers. The main SuperIO is the nuvoton NCT6797D, and we find a GD75323 driver and receiver chip used for the COM port.
A Nuvoton NUC126 Arm Cortex microcontroller is used for addressable RGB LED control. The motherboard features a single 128Mbit BIOS ROM.
