ASUS Prime Z590-P

The ASUS Prime Z590-P is an entry-level Z590 model and focuses more on blending subtle aesthetics with cost-effective controllers. On the design, ASUS has gone with silver heatsinks with black accents and drops RGB LED lighting for a more refined and professional look. ASUS is advertising an 11-phase power delivery, with an 8-pin and 4-pin 12 V ATX CPU power input pairing.

In the center section of the board, ASUS includes two full-length PCIe slots, including one operating at PCIe 4.0 x16 and the other at PCIe 3.0 x4, with two additional PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. For storage, the Prime Z590-P includes three PCIe M.2 slots, with one featuring support for PCIe 4.0 x4, with the other two limited to PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA drives. ASUS also includes four straight-angled SATA ports located in the bottom right-hand corner, which includes support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. The Prime Z590-P has a total of four memory slots, which can accommodate up to 128 GB and speeds of up to DDR4-5133.

The rear panel includes one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports. It includes a pair of video outputs including HDMI and DisplayPort, with five 3.5 mm audio jacks powered by an unspecified Realtek controller. For networking, there's a single Realtek RTL8125 2.5 GbE controller, while users looking to add Wi-Fi can use one Key E M.2 slot. Finishing off the rear panel is a PS/2 combo keyboard and mouse port.

    You’ll never be able to block all the spyware with a firewall. Windows is just one component of it. Don’t forget things like stealth CPUs that are built into the CPU, like the little friend on Lando’s shoulder. Etc. Reply

    What, the tinfoil hat isn't enough anymore? The "spyware" is just as present on any Windows era.

    If you want to disable built in telemetry, pay for pro and disable it in the registry. It's not hard if you're really that into privacy.

    @lmcd - but that would require *effort* - why waste that effort on customising a modern OS, when he could expend more effort cobbling together a barely-working platform on a 12-year-old one? 😂 Reply

    lol all I saw in my head reading those post are "old man yells at clouds" Reply

    That’s due to the fact that the old man has just as much chance of getting the spyware out of Windows and CPUs (and the rest) as you lot have a chance of saying something relevant. Reply

    Z590 only provides six native SATA ports.

    ASRock's Z590 Taichi has eight ports, with two via an ASMedia ASM1061 controller.

    Got it thanks. I suppose that's how the EVGA Dark got it's 8 SATA ports too. Reply

    Z590, if i remember correctly... has 30 HSIO lanes total:
    6 of which are dedicated to USB (and can be ganged in pairs for 20Gb/s ports)
    4 more that is either USB 10Gb/s or 5Gb/s or PCIe.
    2 of them which can be Ethernet or PCIe,
    2 of them which can be SATA, Ethernet, or PCIe.
    6 of them which can be SATA or PCIe.
    10 dedicated PCIe

    So everything all together means theoretically maximum of:
    4 LAN ports
    8 SATA ports
    10 USB ports
    24 PCIe ports

    It's up to motherboard manufacturers to configure them as they see fit. It seems like the popular choice is to maximize USB, leave SATA at 6 and put the rest on PCIe ports (take 1 or 2 away for Ethernet, and 4 away for Thunderbolt if present).

    If anyone's interested in see the doc:
    On to left its under "Technical Documentation" -> "Intel® 500 Series Chipset Family Platform Controller Hub Datasheet, Volume 1 of 2" -> bottom of page 18
