Product on Review: Z490 Taichi
Street Price: GBP £377 | USD $369 | AUD $689
As the dust begins to settle from the initial Intel 10th Gen. launch it’s become increasingly apparent how confidence is oozing from manufacturers for this new platform and the Intel Z490 chipset. There are approximately 50 motherboards to choose from, whereas over in the AMD camp there are just 35 models bearing the X570 chipset. Whether there is any significance in this we’re yet to see, but what it does highlight is that support is certainly drumming up for LGA 1200.
So far, we’ve taken a look at varying options from the cheaper models, right through to the ultra-high-end. Today we’re set to examine an offering which sits towards the upper-end of the market.
The Taichi has been a permanent fixture for ASRock for a number of years and represents the best of what this company has to offer. For this season’s Intel Z490 chipset, we have yet another rendition of this board and it promises to deliver big on features – including USB 3.2 Gen2x2.
