ASRock has officially released its Intel Z590 “Z590 OC Formula” motherboard which will focus on overclocking for the retail market.
The Z590 OC formula is based on the Z590, which comes with a 12-layer server-grade board, a 16-phase power supply circuit with a 90A smart power stage, and an SMD type DIMM slot designed for overclocking resistance.
The PCB drill technology improves impedance matching and loss due to attenuation by removing extra stubs on the multilayer printed wiring board. This allows smooth transfer of signals and extreme memory overclocking.
As far as the specifications are concerned, it is an E-ATX form factor that has 2 DDR4-6000 (maximum 64GB) memory slots, Hyper M.2 x 1, Ultra M.2 x 2, and SATA3.0 (6Gbps) x8 storage. Expansion slots are PCI-Express4.0 (x16 shape) x2, PCI-Express3.0 (x16 shape) x1, PCI-Express2.0 (x1) x2, vertical M.2 x 1 (with wireless module installed). It uses 2.5 Gigabit LAN by Intel I225V and Intel Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.2 for the network.
As part of a launch, the first 100 orders will receive “OC Formula T-shirts”.
