ASRock Reveal New Phantom Motherboards

With Computex 2019 just around the corner, we’re expecting to see a number of brand new Z390 motherboards as the highly-popular Intel chipset enters the next chapter in its lifespan.

ASRock has, however, decided to come to the party early by revealing two new premium level motherboards. Namely, the Z390 Phantom Gaming 7 and Z390 Phantom Gaming X.

Overclocking

With these being high-level boards, a clear emphasis has been placed on overclocking in the design. It’s noted that both board designs have XXL aluminium alloy heat sinks with additional support for M.2 drives. In other words, stability and performance is the clear order of the day here!

Wi-Fi 6

The Phanton Gaming X, however, does take things a step further in it’s design. Featuring Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) network capability, this is (to my knowledge) the first retail motherboard to include this latest upgrade to wireless technology with speeds of up to 2.4Gbps.
