MSI, the world's leading gaming motherboard brand, proudly announces the new flagship Intel Z590 MEG Series motherboards - the MEG Z590 ACE GOLD EDITION, MEG Z590 UNIFY, and MEG Z590 UNIFY-X. They're not only tailored for enthusiast gamers but also offered more possibilities to satisfy various desires - the luster of gold against endless darkness.

Gold symbolizes a unique attribute of pride and elites. The pure luster of gold, 24K presents utmost in color and luminosity. With craftsmanship and hours of dedication, the 24K gold and state-of-the-art technology have been harmonized into one. The MEG Z590 ACE GOLD EDITION boasts premium aesthetics with a brand new color scheme - the platinum color finish and genuine 24K-gold foil heatsink perfectly show off the concept of beauty.



Premium Cooling
Besides appearance, the MEG Z590 ACE GOLD EDITION is designed to unlock the full potential of the Intel Z590 chipset by combining heavy-plated VRM heatsink with elite hardware system design. The ACE GOLD EDITION is an outstanding ATX platform for extreme settings, whether it's for overclocking memory, processor and graphics cards, or pushing immersion at the highest levels.

Excellent Connectivity
In terms of storage and connectivity, the MEG Z590 ACE GOLD EDITION sports quad Optane-supported M.2 slots (Gen4/3 x4), Intel 2.5G LAN, Wi-Fi 6E, HDMI 2.0b, and dual Thunderbolt 4 ports. In short, practically every component has been selected for maximum speed and minimal limitations, all of which gives elite power users an "ACE" up their sleeves over regular systems.

MEG Z590 Unify - Pure Black, Pure Performance
Tailored for hardcore gamers and enthusiast users, the MEG UNIFY series motherboard consists of a modest and pure black design, emphasizing the true value of the motherboard that can be brought to the demanding gamers and power users instead of fancy LED decorations. MSI puts great effort into those essential parts, enhancing not only the thermal but also power solution to run with the Intel multi-core processors.

Extreme Power
It has a hefty VRM Mirrored Power Arrangement with a total of 16+2+1 Phases, 90 A Smart Power Stage (SPS), and Titanium choke III. Combining dual 8-pin power connectors and exclusive Core Boost technology, the MEG Z590 UNIFY and MEG Z590 UNIFY-X are ready to push even the latest Intel 11th Gen Core processors to their limits.

Triple Gen4 M.2
All MSI 500 series motherboards with 11th Gen Intel Core processors support PCIe 4.0 M.2 solution which is the fastest onboard storage on the market. The MEG Z590 UNIFY and MEG Z590 UNIFY-X feature onboard quadruple M.2 connectors with Shield Frozr for the enhanced storage performance. The industry-leading design maximizes bandwidth to fully utilize high-end storage devices, provides maximum triple Lightning Gen 4 solution with up to 64 Gb/s transfer speed and multiple configurations for demanding gamers and power users.

MEG Z590 Unify-X—World Record Breaker
The MEG Z590 UNIFY-X comes with only 2 DIMM slots for an even clearer memory signal to explore the boundaries of memory overclocking and is ready to surpass all limits. Today, MSI's in-house overclocker, Toppc breaks the world record in April of 2021 once again, pushing the DDR4 speeds to an incredible 7200 MHz with MEG Z590 UNIFY-X and Kingston HyperX Predator memory! This not only sets another memory overclocking record for MEG Z590 UNIFY-X but also reveals the combined power with Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 memory.

The Unify?
I was just thinking how gaudy the Ace is and appealing the Unify is in matt black.

"the luster of gold"
Someone that lusts after gold.
Unless they meant Lustre, which means sheen.

Doesn't look like it would give a 3 slot graphics card much breathing room in a case with a power supply shroud.
