The Intel Z590 Motherboard Overview: 50+ Motherboards Detailedby Gavin Bonshor on January 19, 2021 10:15 AM EST
Colorful iGame Z590 Vulcan X & Vulcan W
More typically found within the Asian market, Colorful has prepared a selection of Z590 models. Catering towards the mid-range of the Z590 market is the Colorful iGame Z590 Vulcan X and iGame Z590 Vulcan W, with a white (W) and black (X) variant with the same core feature set. In the top right-hand corner are a three-digit LED debugger, a large red power switch, and a smaller black reset button. Both models include RGB LEDs integrated into the rear panel cover, and the chipset heatsink has a figure embossed, which looks similar to something from Gundam.
The Colorful iGame Z590 Vulcan X and W include three full-length PCIe slots, including two operating at PCIe 4.0 x16 and x8/x8, the third full-length slot locked to PCIe 3.0 x4 and surrounds two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. There are three M.2 slots for storage, one PCIe 4.0 x4 and two PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA, with six SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10.
We did get sent a specifications list from Colorful, but it wasn't too detailed. As such, it didn't specify memory compatibility or what HD audio codec the board is using. We do know though that both model's rear panel includes one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, three USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, four USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, one HDMI video output, and one HDMI video output. Colorful uses an Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controller and an Intel AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi with support for BT 5.2 devices on the networking side of things.
At this time, Colorful hasn't given us any pricing information, but we will keep this page updated when we know more.
