Back in 2020 ASRock introduced their first “PG Veloctia” motherboard with the Z490 PG Velocita and now they are back with a fresh Z590 version. Velocita translates to speed and the Z590 PG Velocita sits at the top of ASRock’s Phantom Gaming line. This board has that sleek Phantom Gaming look we know from ASRock and it is loaded with features as well. You have a 12+2 power phase design, Killer wireless (WiFi 6E) and wired (2.5 GbE) networking, and all of the other great features from the Z590 chipset like USB 3.2 gen 2×2 support and PCI-Express 4.0. Let’s take a look and see what this board is all about!
