MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WIFI DDR4 LGA 1700 Motherboard Overview
16 1 1 DUET RAIL SYSTEM
Unleash and sustain maximum performance with an aggressive VRM design built with a total of 16 Duet Rail Power System(DRPS). Combining 2x 8-pin power connectors and exclusive Core Boost technology, MAG series motherboard is ready to sustain heavy daily work.
LIGHTNING GEN 5 PCI-E
MSI Lightning Gen 5 PCI-E represents the bandwidth of a x16 interface to 128GB/s, which is double of the speed of the previous generation. The advanced SMT(Surface Mount Technology) PCI-E slot diminishes the interference and electrical noise, fully supporting higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds of PCI-E 5.0 signal.
M.2 SHIELD FROZR
Strengthened built-in M.2 thermal solution. Keeps M.2 SSDs safe while preventing throttling, making them run faster.
The PCB design has been optimized for higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds, which is also beneficial for reliable circuit transmission.
- 6 PCB layers
- IT-170 Server-grade PCB material
- 2oz Thickened Copper
Core Boost technology combines MSI’s premium layout and digital power design which allows for faster and undistorted current delivery to the CPU at pin-point precision. Not only supporting multi-core CPU, also creating the perfect conditions for your CPU.
FORTIFY YOUR SYSTEM WITH PCI-E STEEL ARMOR
MSI PCI Express Steel Armor slots are secured to the MAG Z690 Tomahawk with extra solder points and support the weight of heavy graphics cards. When every advantage in games counts, Steel Armor shields the point of contact from electromagnetic interference.
DOUBLE BANDWIDTH WITH LIGHTNING USB 3.2 GEN 2X2 20G
Using USB 3.2 devices has never been faster! Featuring the USB 3.2 Gen2x2 controller, MSI motherboards offer never before seen USB speeds up to 20Gb/s when connecting the Rear USB Type-C. The Lightning USB 20G connectors are covered with gold to ensure a better signal and performance.
AMPLIFY YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH AUDIO BOOST 5
Like a dedicated sound card, Audio Boost 5 offers a HD audio processor, dedicated amplifier and high quality audio capacitors all physically isolated from the rest of the motherboard circuitry to ensure the purest audio signal to locate enemies with pin-point accuracy. Powered by ALC 4080 audio processor, the MAG Z690 Tomahawk supports 120dB SNR, 32-bit/384kHz and DSD Super Audio CD playback & recording.
MAXIMIUM DATA TRANSFER WITH 2.5G LAN
MAG Z690 TOMAHAWK WIFI DDR4 features high-bandwidth and low-latency Ethernet networks for demanding gamers and power users. Onboard 2.5Gbps connectivity provides incredible data transfer speed faster than ever before. MSI LAN Manager automatically classifies and prioritizes the latency-sensitive for your applications, giving you the best online experience with low latency.
