MEG X570 ACE Circuit Analysis Continued
Audio hardware includes a Realtek ALC1220 along with an ESS Sabre DAC, the SABRE9018. There is also a physical PCB divide and gold series audio capacitors.
Normal Gbit LAN comes from an i211AT Intel NIC, and 2.5Gbit LAN comes from an RTL8125. There is also a WIFI6 AX200 controller on the board.
The rear and internal USB 3.1 gen 2 ports (10Gbps) ports use a PI3EQX re-driver, and an HD3220 from Texas Instruments acts as the type-C controller.
The GL850G acts as a USB 2.0 hub for the internal headers. The PI3DBS16 act as PCI-E 4.0 quick switches, the IDT6V4 acts as the PCI-E 4.0 clock generator, and the PI3EQX16 act as PCI-E 4.0 re-drivers.
The Nuvoton NCT6797D is used as the SIO, while a nuvoton NUC126NE is used for RGB LED control.
An MXIC HX25U256 is used as a 256Mbit BIOS ROM for future compatibility for more CPUs. The NCT5635 is used as a GPIO controller for expanded fan control and other features.
The single PCI-E 4.0 quick switch is used to switch x1 PCI-E 4.0 between the two x1 PCI-E slots.
