The first photo of the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Force motherboard has appeared, an interesting product that MSI has positioned in the upper-middle segment of the MPG board line.
This Socket LGA1200 motherboard is based on the Intel Z590 chipset and features a Hip Hop design language, which sets it apart from the company’s other MPG Z590 boards. Two resistive heat conductors cool the sixteen-phase CPU VRM. Another set of three heat conductors covers three M.2 NVMe slots - one of which is the PCIe Gen 4 connected to the LGA1200 socket and the other two to the Z590 PCH.
