MSI MAG Z790 TOMAHAWK MAX WIFI DDR5 LGA1700 ATX Gaming Motherboard

The MSI MAG Z790 TOMAHAWK MAX WIFI motherboard is designed for gamers, giving a stable basis for their PC setups. It has various cutting-edge technologies, such as Wi-Fi 7, 2.5G LAN connectivity, DDR5 memory compatibility, PCIe 5.0 support, and a proprietary M.2 Shield Frozr for best performance. This motherboard is completely equipped to support Intel’s next-generation and 13th-generation Core CPUs. It has a premium VRM design with 16-phase mirrored Power Arrangements, each rated at 90A SPS, twin power connectors, and a Power Stage, making it well-suited for high-end processors.

The advanced SMT (Surface Mount Technology) used in the PCIe slot reduces interference and electrical noise, ensuring reliable PCI-E 5.0 signal support. When compared to the previous generation, this more than doubles the bandwidth of an x16 interface, reaching an impressive 128GB/s. Furthermore, the sophisticated SMT welding method minimises electromagnetic interference and flaws in slot solder junctions. MSI motherboards ensure the delivery of clean and high-frequency DDR5 signals when paired with unique Memory Boost technology.

The Extended Heatsink design improves the heat dissipation surface dramatically, allowing even high-end processors to work at full capacity without overheating. It also protects M.2 SSDs, protecting them from throttling and enabling speedier operation. The higher MOS components are effectively covered by the VRM heatsink, which aids in heat dissipation. All CPU cores can sustain top performance thanks to high-quality 7W/mK MOSFET thermal pads and extra choke thermal pads.

The MSI MAG Z790 TOMAHAWK MAX WIFI motherboard improves DDR performance significantly by using the latest DDR5 memory technology. This motherboard, when combined with specialised SMT welding and MSI Memory Boost technology, is poised to deliver world-class memory performance.
