ASRock Z590 Phantom Gaming 4 and 4/AC

The ASRock Z590 Phantom Gaming 4 AC and the non-WiFi version, the Z590 Phantom Gaming 4, represent its entry-level. It follows a fundamental layout, with much smaller heatsinks than the more high-end Z590 PG Velocita. It includes a pair of silver power delivery heatsinks, which cool the advertised 8-phase VRM, and a small silver chipset heatsink. 

The ASRock Z590 Phantom Gaming 4/AC and Z590 Phantom Gaming share identical features, minus the Wi-Fi on the non AC version. Located towards the board's center are two full-length PCIe slots, with the top slot operating at PCIe 4.0 x16 and the second slot locked at PCIe 3.0 x4. It also includes three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots, with three M.2 slots. The M.2 slots include a PCIe 4.0 x4 slot at the top and two PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA M.2 slots, with six SATA ports supporting RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. The top right-hand corner is four memory slots with support for DDR4-4800 and can accommodate up to 128 GB.

The rear panel is basic, with the Z590 Phantom Gaming 4/AC including an Intel Wi-Fi 5 CNVi. Both models share the rest, including one USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports. Powering the single RJ45 port is an unspecified Gigabit Ethernet controller, while an older Realtek ALC897 HD audio codec drives the three 3.5 mm audio jacks. Finishing off the rear panel is one HDMI video output, with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse combo port for legacy peripherals.

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.
