NZXT has announced the launch of its third generation of motherboards. The N7 Z490 ATX motherboard was “specially designed around Intel’s 10th generation Z490 chipset”, offering DIY enthusiasts everything they need to squeeze every bit of performance from their systems.
NZXT has partnered with ASRock to manufacture the N7 Z490 motherboard, ensuring “that each motherboard takes advantage of Intel’s Z490 chipset and strong BIOS support”. Featuring Wi-Fi6 and Bluetooth 5.1, this motherboard offers the latest wireless technologies to their users. Additionally, the metal cover embellishes the motherboard by hiding the PCB and blending the motherboard into the case if it’s mounted on an NZXT H-series chassis.
Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO, stated that the N7 Z490 motherboard was designed based on NZXT’s idea of “giving builders what they need”, providing a “simple layout, packed with the latest wireless technology, and a metal cover” so users can build the machine they need for gaming.
Some other features included in the NZXT N7 Z490 motherboard includes 8+2 DrMOS power phase design, a Realtek RTL8125BG 2.5Gbps LAN network interface, 2x M.2 connectors for storage solutions, CrossFireX-ready, memory support with clock speeds of up to 4266MHz and Intel XMP 2.0, and the Realtek ALC1220 codec to handle audio. This motherboard also features a built-in RGB and fan controller with 4x RGB lighting channels and 7x fan channels.
The NZXT N7 Z490 motherboard is available now for $229.90.
