ASRock launches the Z790 Taichi Lite and B650E Taichi Lite motherboards under the new Taichi Lite Series introduced during COMPUTEX 2023. The Taichi Lite Series are toned-down versions of the Taichi models. The Taichi Lite comes in a less aesthetic form having fewer heatsinks that are deemed unnecessary for the general function of the motherboard.

Comparing the ASRock Z790 Taichi with the Z790 Taichi Lite, you can notice that both motherboards' headers, capacitors, and other components are exactly on the same spot. Hence, both motherboards use the same layout and pack the same set of features. For example, both models feature a 24+1+2 Phase Power Design with SPS for VCore+GT. The Taichi Lite Series focuses on the essentials which are functionality, performance, and durability.
