GIGABYTE Z590I Vision D
Based on its larger ATX sibling, the Z590 Vision D, the GIGABYTE Z590I Vision D follows similar principles in that it is designed for content creators but for those that require a small desktop footprint. Aside from its small form factor mini-ITX design, it uses silver and black contrasting heatsinks and packs a mighty punch in the features department. It includes dual Thunderbolt 4 Type-C, Intel's 2.5 Gb Ethernet, as well as Wi-Fi 6 and dual PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2.
Located along the bottom of the board is a single full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with solid storage options including dual PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2, as well as four straight angled SATA ports that include support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10. GIGABYTE hasn't unveiled memory compatibility, so things currently stand at DDR4-3200, although users can still install up to 64 GB of memory across two slots.
The rear panel is impressive for a mini-ITX model, with dual Thunderbolt 4 Type-C and DisplayPort input and two USB 3.2 G2 Type-A and four USB 3.2 G1 Type-A ports. Networking includes Intel's I225-V 2.5 GbE controller and Intel AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi pairing, with just two 3.5 mm audio jacks line-out and another for a microphone. Last but not least is a small Q-Flash button that allows users to update the board's firmware.
At the time of writing, GIGABYTE hasn't shared any details on its Z590 models' pricing.
