GIGABYTE Z590 Vision D
The GIGABYTE Z590 Vision D is the top tier model in its line up for creators, with exquisite silver and black contrasting design. Like GIGABYTE's Designare models, which focus on premium controller sets utilized by creators and designers, the Z590 Vision D includes Thunderbolt 4 Type-C, three PCIe M.2 slots, dual 2.5 GbE, and Wi-Fi 6E networking. In the top-right hand corner is a two-digit LED debugger, with a wave of PCIe slot armor that matches the design of the rear panel cover and the power delivery heatsink covers.
Looking towards the center of the board sits the PCIe area, with three full-length PCIe slots operating at PCIe 4.0 x16, and x8/x8. The third slot is locked at PCIe 3.0 x4, with a single PCIe 3.0 x1 slot. The GIGABYTE offers three M.2 slots, with one PCIe 4.0 x4 and two PCIe 3.0/SATA, with six SATA ports for conventional drives with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. As it stands, GIGABYTE hasn't given us the QVL list for memory support, so it's listed at Intel's default DDR4-3200 spec, although the four memory slots can accommodate up to 128 GB. Like the Z590 Vision G, the GIGABYTE Z590 Vision D includes a USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C internal header.
The GIGABYTE Z590 Vision G has a premium rear panel, with two Thunderbolt 4 Type-C ports supported with a DisplayPort input and two USB 3.2 G2 Type-A and four USB 3.2 G1 Type-A ports. Realtek's latest ALC4080 HD audio codec makes an appearance and drives the five color-coded 3.5 mm audio jack and S/PDIF optical output. In contrast, an HDMI video output offers users support for Intel's HD integrated graphics. Finishing off the rear panel is a pair of Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controllers, with Intel's latest AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi, which also includes support for BT 5.2 devices.
At the time of writing, GIGABYTE hasn't shared any details on its Z590 models' pricing.
