- The latest flagship desktop processor from Intel, the Core i9-11900K, has been out for over a month, and we’ve been busy putting numerous Z590 motherboards on tests to see how some of the motherboard options stack up against each other. Up for analysis today is GIGABYTE’s Z590 Aorus Master, which is one of its premium models and has plenty of high-quality features and controllers onboard. Based on the Aorus gaming series, the Z590 Aorus Master includes 10 gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6E, three M.2 slots, and large power delivery. From the specifications, it’s a behemoth but with an attractive price tag when compared to the flagship Z590 offerings.From our experience with previous generations of Intel’s premium desktop chipsets, including Z490, Z390, Z370, etc., we’ve seen numerous trends of motherboard vendors stacking features onto its PCBs. Ultimately, the better the feature set, the more it costs, which is understandable, but Intel’s Z590 offers some of Intel’s biggest updates from a desktop-based chipset from them in years.Aside from the PCIe 4.0 support that the 11th generation Rocket Lake processors bring to the table, the Intel Z590 chipset, when paired with Rocket Lake, effectively doubles the bandwidth between the CPU and chipset’s DMI to x8, as well as native support for Wi-Fi 6E CNVi, which uses the latest 6 GHz Wi-Fi band for uninterrupted wireless access. Another addition native USB 3.2 Gen2x2 connectivity, which is fantastic for content creators and users with compatible devices.
