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.

    There is an VERY IMPORTANT ERROR in this article about the Asus Z590 gaming series motherboards - one that has potentially just cost me a chunk of the £320 i paid for one!
    In the article above, it states that the Z590-F Gaming WiFi motherboard will run in either x16, x8/x8 or x8/x4/x4 modes. THIS IS WRONG! The board will actually only run x16 for PCIe slot 1, if you have a card in slot 2, it drops to x8/x4 not x8/x8. for me this is a complete deal breaker as I have an RTX3070 and an LSI SAS RAID card which runs at PCIex8 - and is now running at x4 :(

    Are there any Z590 mobos that do not have a PCIe switch between the socket and the gen4-capable slots?
    If not, what motherboard has the best throughput @ Gen4?
    Looking to plug in something like a Mellanox ConnectX-6DX which can do 1x200GbE / 2x100GbE, and want best possible bandwidth.

    Only one PCIe slot is 4th gen on all of these current motherboards. The other one or two M.2 slots are 3rd gen so you don't need to bother spending more money on your other NVMe storage devices. Reply

    Regarding your z590 Vision D description:
    “ Finishing off the rear panel is a pair of Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controllers, with Intel's latest AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi, which also includes support for BT 5.2 devices.”

    The article is in need of a correction: this board comes with the AX200 chip, not the ax210.

    Yeww ... a PS/2 port? I didn't know we still live in the 90s. Every time I start shopping for desktop upgrade, my search gets halted when I see PS/2 ports, VGA port, HDMI port or USB 2.0 port - it just makes me want to puke. And what's up with the motherboards that have 5 different video outputs? Pick a standard and stick with it! If I need to switch connectors I will use an adapter.

    P.S. Can we for ONCE see a motherboard with a decent amount of PCIe slots(I would like to see mATX with two x16 and two x4, none of that useless x1), no old USB ports but only the latest USB-C(we know how to use USB adapters and hubs), same type of video output(preferably something that supports the latest video standards), and NO legacy ports !!! Oh and if possible at least 3 M.2 NVMe ports, to allow for a decent RAID.

    Ah crap, I forgot - and a dual 2.5Gb LAN please. Some of us can no longer have their workloads on legacy 1Gb connections. Reply
