When AMD launched their Ryzen 5000 series processors late last year we sort of got a “refresh” of X570 motherboards. One of those boards was the ASRock X570 PG Velocita, which sits in their Phantom Gaming (PG) line. This board is all ready for the new 5000 series processors with upgraded power stages, Killer networking for both the 2.5G LAN and 802.11ax WiFi 6, USB 3.2 gen 2, Gen4 M.2 NVMe storage, and of course a sleek design with RGB lighting. Is this the board you need to get for your Ryzen 5000 series build? Read on as we find out!

The X570 PG Velocita comes in ASRock’s typical retail box. On the front there is a large PG Velocita logo. Flipping over to the back we get a run-down of many of the board’s features, a list of specifications, and a rear I/O overview.
Getting everything out of the box besides the motherboard you’ll find four SATA cables, two velcro cable ties, WiFi antenna, screws for the M.2 slots, Phantom Gaming stickers, a Phantom Gaming post card, a driver and software CD, quick installation guide, and user’s guide.
