Colorful iGame CVN Z490 Gaming Pro V20

The Colorful iGame CVN Z490 Gaming Pro V20 is another ATX model at launch. It seems to be the go-to motherboard for fans of the armed forces with not military-themed models around these days, e.g. GIGABYTE Z87 Sniper G1. The iGame CVN Z490 Gaming Pro V20 has a naval theme which is based on a CVN class aircraft carrier from the American military, with an entry-level feature set.

Looking at the Z490 Gaming Pro V20, it has silver heatsinks with the rear panel cover doubling up as one of two power delivery heatsinks. It has a black and grey printed PCB, with two full-length PCIe 3.0 slots which operate at x16/+4, with three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. There are two PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots, with six SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. In terms of memory support, it has four memory slots with support for DDR4-4000, with a maximum capacity of up to 128 GB.

On the rear panel is a single USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports. Also featured is a single Realtek RTL8111H Ethernet port, with a Realtek ALC892 powering the five 3.5 mm audio jacks and S/PDIF optical output. Finishing off the rear panel is a DisplayPort and HDMI pair of video outputs.

While it shouts bare essential, it has unique styling with its navy CVN class aircraft carrier roots. It has a budget-level spec list which is spearheaded by a pair of PCIe 3.0 M.2 slots and an advertised 10-phase power delivery. While we don’t currently have any information on pricing, it’s likely to slot into the $150-200 pricing segment.

    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.
