ASRock Z590M Pro4
The ASRock Z590M Pro 4 is the micro-ATX version of the ATX Z590 Pro 4, with a very similar feature set and aesthetic. The Z590M Pro 4 includes a silver and black printed PCB, silver heatsinks, and is one of just a tiny handful of micro-ATX models on Z590. ASRock is advertising a 12-phase power delivery, likely to the same spec as the larger Z590 Pro4. The Pro4 does include limited RGB capability, with LEDs integrated around the chipset heatsink.
The ASRock Z590 Pro4 includes two full-length PCIe slots, with the top slot operating at PCIe 4.0 x16 and the second slot at PCIe 3.0 x4, with two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. The board includes four memory slots with support for DDR4-4800 and a maximum combined total of 128 GB. Storage options include two M.2 slots, including one PCIe 4.0 x4 and one PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA M.2 slot, as well as four SATA ports, two right-angled and two-straight angled with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays.
On the rear panel are two USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports, with a single Ethernet port powered by an unspecified Gigabit controller. The board includes three 3.5 mm audio jacks powered by a Realtek ALC897 HD audio codec, with a DisplayPort and HDMI video output pairing for users leveraging Intel's HD graphics. Finishing off the rear panel is a PS/2 keyboard and mouse combo port designed for legacy peripherals.
At the time of writing, ASRock hasn't shared details on its Z590 pricing.
