So after a long wait and countless rumors, EVGA has finally officially released the most impressive motherboard model for Intel’s mainstream CPU platforms to date. Notably, this is also one of the few motherboard models designed by KINGPIN himself, and is advertised as being able to fully support Intel’s 11th generation CPUs by pushing them to the limit of performance. Optimal.
Practically speaking, the EVGA Z590 DARK is not a traditional motherboard model. It is designed to be fully compatible with unlocked Intel 11th Gen ‘Rocket Lake’ CPUs. It also offers great customization for hardware upgrade enthusiasts. This is shown quite clearly with the appearance of a horizontally placed socket, which plays an important role in overclocking memory to the absolute limit.
Going into more detail, the EVGA Z590 DARK is equipped with LGA 1200 socket which supports both 10th and 11th Gen Intel CPUs. The CPU socket is powered by two 8-pin connectors located next to the 24-pin power connector, all are all placed at right angles to make wiring easier. The board has an impressive 21-phase Digital VRM. In addition to excellent power delivery, it is impossible not to mention the presence of a system of large, large copper fin heat sinks, for high cooling efficiency. There are at least three such radiator systems, covering the VRM and PCH, all connected to each other through a large copper heatpipe. These heatsinks are also surrounded by an eye-catching metal frame, extending to the RGB-illuminated ‘Z590 DARK’ I/O plate area. Not stopping there, EVGA also integrates a dual PWM fan system in the I/O plate, which effectively blows hot air towards the heatsinks to increase overall cooling.
Coming to the RAM slots, the EVGA Z590 DARK has two DDR4 DIMM slots that support 5333 MHz+ (OC). The reason EVGA puts them horizontally is quite “weird” is to move the lanes closer to the CPU socket, which in turn allows for better signal transmission, resulting in higher memory speeds compared to the transmission design. system. You will be limited to only 64 GB, but that is more than enough for the needs of the majority of users. For expansion, the EVGA Z590 DARK offers 2 PCIe Gen 4.0 x16 slots, a single PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 slot, and 3 M.2 slots, one of which is Gen 4 compatible. All slots The M.2 are centered on a large heatsink with the ‘DARK’ logo on top.
In terms of hard drive support, the Z590 DARK provides 8 SATA III ports and a single U.2 port (all in the right corner). For those intending to push the PCIe lanes on the motherboard, there will be an additional 6-pin power connector provided next to the audio PCB. I/O includes 7.1 channel audio jacks, 4 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A, 1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C, 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1, PS/2, Dual Antenna, Dual Intel 2.5GbE NICs, HDMI/DP port. There is also a multi-function Dual Probelt and POST indicator system in addition to the BIOS reset switch and the power switch on the motherboard.
Regarding the selling price, the EVGA Z590 DARK has a list price of 599 USD in the US market. This is an acceptable price for a high-end motherboard model. To find out more detailed specifications of the Z590 DARK, you can visit the official EVGA website HERE.
