ASRock Z590 PG Velocita

Moving down from the Z590 Taichi is the ASRock Z590 PG Velocita. The PG stands for Phantom Gaming, ASRock's gaming-focused range, with aggressive yet stylish aesthetics. We reviewed the previous ASRock Z490 PG Velocita last year, and for 2021, ASRock has updated the design for Z590. This includes a futuristic RGB enabled chipset heatsink, with other RGB included in the rear panel cover. 

The ASRock Z590 PG Velocita includes three full-length PCIe slots with ASRock Steel Armor, with the top two slots operating at PCIe 4.0 x16, and x8/x8, the third operating at PCIe 3.0 x4, with a single PCIe 3.0 x1 slot. There are four memory slots with support for DDR4-4800, with a maximum combined total of 128 GB. For storage, ASRock includes one PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot, with two PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2/SATA slots, with six SATA ports. Located in the top-right hand corner is an onboard power and reset button pairing, while a two-digit LED debugger can be found at the bottom right.

On the rear panel is one USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, and six USB 3.2 G1 Type-A ports, with a DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI video output pairing for users looking to use Intel's integrated graphics. Networking is provided by two Ethernet controllers, including a Killer E3100 2.5 GbE and Intel Gigabit pairing. Wireless is provided by a new Killer AX1675 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi with support for BT 5.2 devices. The onboard audio is powered by a Realtek ALC1220 HD audio codec and uses Nahamic audio control.

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.

    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.

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

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