The Chinese brand Colorful presents a new motherboard, the iGame Z690D5 Ultra. On the program, we find a model for Intel processors of twelfth generation. Likewise, it has a DDR5 memory slot, however, we will not use PCIe 5.0.
iGame Z690D5 Ultra: DDR5, but no PCIe 5.0!
With this new model, the brand offers us a card in ATX format with a neat look. Moreover, on the PCB, we will find the patterns and shapes brought by the different heatsinks of the card. Moreover, the VRM heatsinks will cool a total of 18+1 power supply phases equipped with Dr.MOS in 90A.
In terms of connectivity, we have the right to four memory slots in DDR5-6200 taking up to 128 GB of RAM. Unfortunately, there will be no PCIe 5.0, here we will have to make do with two PCIe x16 4.0 operating in x8/x8 with two GPUs. Finally, two small PCIe x1 3.0 and one PCIe x4 3.0 close the deal.
For the storage part, we have enough to do with six SATA III connectors. Finally, three M.2 are present, each of them benefiting from a heatsink and all running in PCIe x4 4.0.
At the back, there are two USB 2.0 connectors followed by four USB 3.2 Gen2. A USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C is present, as well as HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs. The network part benefits from antenna ports and an RJ45 managed by an Intel chip in 2.5 Gbps. As for the network part, we have the right to a chip managing 8 channels.
For the price, it will be necessary to count $289 for this model.
