The MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC in Detail:
Using the cutting edge i9-9900K processor, the MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC natively supports speeds of up to 2666 MHz, and up to 4400 MHz with overclocking. It can handle intense graphic applications since it is compatible with NVIDIA's SLI- and AMD's CrossFireX technologies for linking multiple GPUs.
There are also numerous technical innovations, enhancements and an array of storage solutions. For instance, there are three PCIe x16 slots, as well as three further PCIe x1 slots. It has two M.2 slots capable of running ultra fast NVMe-M.2 SSDs, resulting in a data transfer rate of nearly 4 GB/s. This makes M.2 PCIe SSDs up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs.
There are six SATA 6G connectors for 3.5"- or 2.5" hard drives and -SSDs (incl. RAID support). Up to 64GB of RAM can be added across four DIMM slots.
The board offers excellent options for connecting external peripherals. The motherboard comes with an I/O panel boasting an array of the very latest and greatest connectivity standards including five USB 3.1 (4x Type-A & 1x Type-C), four USB 3.0 and six USB 2.0 (internal & external), as well as support for Thunderbolt.
Video is displayed via an HDMI or DisplayPort 1.2 while HD-Audio with Audio Boost 4 allows for excellent sound output.
