ASUS ROG Strix Z490-G Gaming Wi-Fi

ASUS has unveiled that it plans to release a pair of micro-ATX models, the ASUS ROG Strix Z490-G Wi-Fi, and a version without. Likely to follow its larger ATX sized Strix counterparts, the biggest features of the ROG Strix Z490-G Wi-Fi include dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots, four SATA ports, an Intel Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface, and a single Intel 2.5 G Ethernet port.

The ASUS ROG Strix Z490-G Wi-Fi and the non-Wi-Fi version share the same feature set, minus the Intel AX201 Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface. Included is two full-length PCIe 3.0 slots which operate at x16/+4, with a single PCIe 3.0 x1 slot. For storage is a pair of PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots, with six SATA ports that feature support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. There are four memory slots which have support for up to 128 GB of DDR4-4400 memory.

While we don't currently have information about what's on the rear panel, we know the board has support for a maximum of 15 USB ports when combining the rear panel and what the boards support through front panel headers. The networking of the Wi-Fi enabled board consists of an AX201 Wi-Fi 6 wireless interface with support for BT 5.1 devices, while both versions include a single Intel I225-V 2.5 G Ethernet port. From the above, we can see that there is at least four USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, a single USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, with an HDMI and DisplayPort 1.4 pair of video outputs. The five 3.5 mm audio jacks and S/PDIF optical output are controlled by a SupremeFX S1220A HD audio codec.

ASUS hasn't announced when the ASUS ROG Strix Z490-G Gaming or the Wi-Fi enabled model will be launched, and as of yet, ASUS hasn't set pricing.

This page will be updated when more information becomes available to us.

    I really hate when new articles are inserted below the lead spot because it's hit or miss if I ever notice them. I missed this one during several visits to the site and only found it when Google suggested it in response to a search I made. Reply

    I basically make about $12,000-$18,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it . This is what I’ve been doing old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home… ­w­w­w.i­Ⅽ­a­s­h­6­8.Ⅽ­o­m­ Reply

    This must have taken some writing. Kudos to the author(s). A good one stop article for anybody planning on going the Intel route. Intel seem to be adept at packaging old milk (not wine) in a new bottle. At least increase the number of PCIe lanes... Reply

    I recommend using the RSS feed, then you get everything and you get it chronologically. Reply

    +1 on RSS!

    The "magazine layout" that plagues many sites and makes it impossible to distinguish between old articles, new articles and commercials can thankfully still be avoided through RSS.

    Funny that ASRock are the only manufacturers to have a mATX X570 motherboard for AMD's platform, yet for Intel they're the only one's NOT to have a mATX motherboard. Reply

    You mean they are relevant again, because they have fixed their stereotypical USB issues? Reply

    So in other words a re-spin of previous chipset with little to no real useful extra features but will require a new board. Classic intel. This is one of many reasons my last system was Intel and my new system is AMD now.

    Unless you are a intel fanboy why keep supporting this?

    New networking controllers, support for PCIe 4 CPUs (RKL-S that will be released in future).
    Some boards also have USB Gen 2x2 support with external ASMedia controller. I know no any X570 board with USB Gen 2x2 support. Only Gen 2x1.
