ASUS and MSI have shared the prices for their upcoming Z590 motherboards, and they aren’t pretty, particularly for prospective Intel 11th Gen Core “Rocket Lake-S” processor adopters who are planning on purchasing these manufacturers’ flagship options.
You can check out the tables below for the full story, but ASUS’ ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL and ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME cost 1,516 EUR and 960 EUR, respectively, while MSI’s MEG Z590 GODLIKE is similarly expensive at 1,019 EUR.

“For our Z590 lineup, we use all platform features offered by the 11th generation of core processors in order to offer Intel PCs a thoroughly innovative experience for DIY enthusiasts,” ASUS wrote in its press release.
“In conjunction with these upcoming CPUs, ASUS Z590 motherboards offer up to 16 lanes of PCI Express 4.0 connectivity directly from the processor and deliver up to 32GB / s bandwidth for today’s most powerful discrete graphics processors. The Z590 platform also uses four dedicated PCIe 4.0 lanes from the processor for maximum performance with the latest SSDs.”
