The Z590 motherboards are soon going to be launched, which means the office is slowly filling up with motherboard boxes. If you're anything like us then it's fun to see a full suite of performance tests but it's just as much fun to scratch your curiosity itch and get a chance to look over it.
That's also a fairly useful thing to do these days with so many motherboards being consistent in their performance the chances are that you're just as likely to buy a motherboard based upon its looks or your brand loyalty as you are any major feature set differences. The ASUS Strix range of mobos have proven to be insane sellers, bridging the price gap between a bottom of the range motherboard and the type - Maximus/Crosshair - that requires you to have a beefy bank balance.
Details about all of the Z590 range are either thin on the ground or covered under NDA, but we know that the main big feature is the introduction of PCI Express 4.0 on to the Intel platform alongside support for the newest 11th Generation CPUs. You know even ASUS are struggling to tell us what is new as one of the features listed below is an "L Shaped heatpipe". So rather than flannel any longer let's grab the box and show off the goodies.
