MSI has officially launched its flagship motherboard for 12th Gen Intel Core processors, the MEG Z690 GODLIKE. Serving as the final and most impressive member of MSI’s Z690 lineup, the MEG Z690 GODLIKE comes packed with a number of premium features for extreme overclockers and other demanding enthusiasts, such as a full-aluminum heatsink, dual CPU connectors, an eight-layer server-grade PCB, and even a built-in touch LCD for displaying system diagnostics—the industry’s first, according to the manufacturer. MSI did not list a price for the MEG Z690 GODLIKE in its press release shared today, but according to a previous episode of MSI Insider, the premium motherboard will cost $2,099.
One Board to Rule Them All – MEG Z690 GODLIKE (MSI)
As Intel launched the 12th Gen Core processors and immediately gained lots of attention, MSI also released many motherboards for various usages. However, the best has yet to come until now. Today, the last member of the Z690 platform is here. The one board to rule them all – MEG Z690 GODLIKE.
GODLIKE’s number one goal for the end-users is evident, designed for the best performance and experience enabled by truly remarkable systems. Whether it’s record-breaking overclocking, ultra-customization of ARGB lighting with touch control LCD dashboard, or simply the desire to build the most powerful system imaginable, the MEG Z690 GODLIKE stands unrivaled at the pinnacle of all the Z690 motherboard capabilities.
One Universe Created with Premium Cooling
It is covered in dark, deep, and full aluminum heatsink fashioned with a triangular grid pattern. The illuminating dragon nebula with tempered glass reveals the power with a column of faith and meteor RGB effect. The MEG Z690 GODLIKE symbolizes the endless power of the one universe, ready for every challenge.
Under its powerful appearance, there are multiple patented-pending cooling solutions. The Dual Cross Heat-pipe connects two MOS heatsinks, while the exclusive Wavy Fin Design with 7W/mK Thermal Pad provides a great surface for heat dissipation. The Magnetic Double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr effectively reduces the high-speed M.2 temperature that helps gamers enjoy its extreme performance while having the lowest operating temperature.
It is equipped with the industry’s first built-in touchable LCD. The 3.5 inch IPS LCD panel on the motherboard provides the next level of system diagnostics – hardware monitoring, reading debug codes, finding other useful information, and even customizing your display with dedicated MSI software. Moreover, the touchable function enables system operation, fine-tunes complicated PC settings, and even activates the windows function with customization in one touch.
The M-Vision Dashboard connects the motherboard with its easy to disassemble magnetic design. Furthermore, once connected with the GODLIKE rear USB port, the dashboard can operate independently. You can put the dashboard in front of your case, on your desk, or stick to your monitor for easy access. With just one touch, your PC operation received an entire new form.
Extreme Power Solution & Storage Performance
The MEG Z690 GODLIKE features the summit direct power solution, Direct 20+2 Phases with 105A Smart Power Stage power design, dual 8-pin power connectors with exclusive Core Boost technology, and 8 Layer Server Grade with 2oz Copper PCB. This makes it all the more ready to push the latest processors to their limits!
The incredible onboard 6x M.2 connectors for the maximum storage performance with one Lightning Gen 5 solution allow gamers to get super-fast game speed. Strengthened by Magnetic Double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr, the M.2 SSDs can be cooler and faster.
The Ultimate Performance
GODLIKE features tons of the latest technology to overcome any challenge at hand. Onboard 10G Super LAN, WI-FI 6E Solution with MSI LAN Manager, Dual Thunderbolt 4, USB 4.0, Dual Lightning PCIe 5.0 Slots, Latest DDR5 Memory, Dual Front USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 20G Type-C, Audio Boost 5 HD, and MSI Center software all provide you the “GODLIKE” performance.
