ASRock Z590M-ITX/ac

ASRock's only mini-ITX model known at this time is the basic looking yet elegant Z590M-ITX/ac. Small form factor systems are still popular with enthusiasts, and ASRock, over the years, has had some of the best examples of how to get mini-ITX done properly. The ASRock Z590M-ITX/ac includes a black and gray printed PCB with silver heatsinks and is advertising an 8-phase power delivery.

The ASRock Z590M-ITX/ac includes one full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, two M.2 slots, one PCIe 4.0 x4, and one with support for PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA drives. ASRock includes four SATA ports, all with straight-angled connectors, with all four supporting RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10. Due to the limitations of mini-ITX, there are two memory slots, with support for up to DDR4-5066 and a maximum capacity of up to 64 GB. Located just below the SATA is a single USB 3.2 G2 Type-C header.

On the rear panel is a single USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, four USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, and one USB 2.0 port. The three 3.5 mm audio jacks are powered by a Realtek ALC897 HD audio codec, while the board's networking includes dual RJ45 ports, one driven by a Realtek RTL8125 2.5 Gb and the other by an Intel I219-V Gigabit controller. ASRock is also using Intel's latest AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi, including support for BT 5.2 devices. Last but not least are a pair of video outputs, including DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0.

At the time of writing, ASRock hasn't shared details on its Z590 pricing.

    I'm a bit surprised they went to an x8 3.0 link on the chipset instead of an x4 4.0 one, even if everything coming off of the chipset is still limited to 3.0 speed. Reply

    Might be because it makes routing the traces easier, they don't have to adhere to the PCIe 4.0 signal requirements. Downside would be that more pins are required. Reply

    Other being quite boring platform , there is noticeable lack of M-ATX offerings. Reply

    Also it seems like even with properly finned heatsinks Gigabyte Aorus master requires a fan to cool VRMs which is not a good sign. Reply
