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.

    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

    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
