Z390 Phantom Gaming 9 Circuit Analysis Continued
The audio solution consists of a Realtek ALC1220 rated up to 120dB with integrated amplifier going to the rear IO panel, an added NE5532 for front audio amplification, and Gold series audio capacitors.
We find Realtek's 2.5Gbit Gaming LAN controller on the back of the motherboard, RTL8125. The two other Gbit NICs are from Intel; an i219v and an i211AT.
The front USB 3.0 internal headers are from an ASMedia ASM1074 hub. The ASMedia ASM1562 is a re-driver for the USB 3.1 internal header, and we find an ASM1543 type-C switch on the back for that internal header.
For the rear IO type-C port, we find another ASM1543, and the two dual-port PI3EQX are re-drivers for the USB 3.1 from the PCH.
An ASM1061 is used to provide two extra SATA6Gb/s ports on the motherboard. We have a Hyper BCLK chip on the motherboard as well, which is used for BCLK overclocking.
To get extra PCI-E for the WIFI, SATA, and PCI-E x1 slots, ASRock added in an ASMedia ASM1184e hub. An NCT6791D SuperIO is used for IO, and a nuvoton NCT5567D is used to expand fan control.
We find two BIOS ROMs on this motherboard, they are 128Mbit/16MB. We also find the Intel Wireless AC 9260NGW WIFI card on this motherboard.
A nuvoton N76E885 is used for RGB LEDs. ASRock is using ASMedia ASM1480 quick switches to move around PCI-E bandwidth.
