MSI is ready to provide all customers who jumped the gun on the new 14th-gen Intel Core S-Series desktop CPUs with their new Z790 MAX motherboards.
Comprised of the MEG, MPG, MAG, and PRO families, these boards are rated to support the beastly 6GHz-capable Core i9-14900K thanks to the fully geared power delivery solution, beefy VRM cooling, and circuitry printing of the highest quality.
Similar to other brands’ offerings, the debut of WiFi 7 is enabled for every Z790 MAX series board, offering up to 5.8Gbps speed through doubling bandwidth from 160MHz to 320MHz in addition to enhancing the Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) from 1024 to 4096 for peak transmission rate.
The PCIe 5.0 connection for the GPU and M.2 SSDs are also here to serve the best speeds possible. Specifically the toasty M.2 drive, the M.2 Shield Frozr passively provides cooling while the EZ M.2 Clip makes installing the drive completely tool-less.
As a special gift, buyers of the MPG Z790 CARBON MAX WIFI will be able to receive a unit of the USB 4. PD100W Expansion Card featuring 1x PCIe 4.0 x4 interface for 2x USB 4 and 2 DP 1.4 ports and as its name suggests, capable of providing 100W of charging for compatible devices.
