Z790A-Silver: PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 at Biostar!
The program includes a motherboard in standard ATX format. With this model, we find a board with a Z790 chipset and a LGA-1700 socket of course. This is a board designed for 12th and 13th generation Intel processors.
As for connectivity, it has a PCIe 5.0 x16 connector. By the way, for the little anecdote, the first graphics card running with this standard is Chinese it’s free. Otherwise, we will have the right to a second PCIe 4.0 x16 slot coupled with two small PCIe 3.0 x1.
The memory part has four DIMM slots in DDR5. They can hold up to 128 GB of RAM, all clocked at 6400 MT/s.
For storage, we find six SATA III 6 Gb/s connectors completed by three M.2 2280 in PCIe 4.0.
At the back, we find a SMART BIOS UPDATA button followed by DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.1 video outputs. This is followed by five USB 3.2 Gen2 type A connectors and a USB 3.2 Gen2 type C. Finally, we have the right to two USB 2.0,Ethernet in RTL8125B and audio in ALC1220. Now we just need to know the price of the card.
