ASUS ROG Strix Z590-I Gaming WIFI

The ASUS ROG Strix Z590-I Gaming WIFI is the brand's premium mini-ITX offering, with a true focus on high-end small form factor systems. It uses an all-black design, with elements of the ROG Strix design over a mesh-covered rear panel cover, with an RGB enabled ROG logo built unto the combined M.2 and chipset heatsink.

Along the bottom of the board is a single PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with two stacked M.2 slots, with one operating at PCIe 4.0 x4, and the other with PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA support. The right-hand side is four straight-angled SATA ports, with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. Memory support is great as expected for an ASUS mini-ITX model, with speeds of up to DDR4-5333 and up to 64 GB of capacity. ASUS is also advertising a 10-phase power delivery in an 8+2 configuration, with one 8-pin 12 V ATX CPU power input delivering the necessary power to the processor.

On the rear panel are one Thunderbolt 4 Type-C port, with one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, one USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and four USB 2.0 ports. For users planning to take advantage of Intel's integrated graphics is an HDMI 2.0 video output, while three gold plated and illuminated 3.5 mm audio jacks are powered by a Realtek ALC4080 HD audio codec and Savitech SV3H712 amplifier. ASUS uses an Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controller, with an Intel AX210 Wi-Fi 6E CNVi, which also adds BT 5.2 device connectivity. Finishing off the rear panel is a small BIOS Flashback button.

    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.
