There are a few things that get me hyped for a new motherboard. Improved performance and support for new CPUs is one thing, of course. However, the words AsRock, Phantom, and Mini-ITX are even more exciting. AsRock are one of the finest brands out there, and they’ve created many of the best looking and more feature-packed motherboards for several generations now. Premium, mini-ITX, Phantom, flagship, these are all words that roughly translate to expensive. However, despite the price tag, it seems you’re getting everything you’re paying for and then some with the ITX/TB3.
Obviously, you get 10th Gen Intel CPU support, and the board comes Gen4 ready for the Comet Lake CPUs too. It may be mini-ITX, which is awesome, but it’s not exactly small on high-end hardware options. There’s Thunderbolt 3, Ultra M.2, Intel WiFi 6 as well as Phantom Gaming 2.5G LAN. That’s an impressive setup for those wanting big connectivity in a smaller form factor. Those wanting a bit more of everything may want to check out the ATX Velocita board here.

“Phantom Gaming is designed by gamers and for gamers! Underneath its relentless appearance lie plentiful gaming oriented features and excellent gaming capabilities. It’s all about bringing a new gaming experience to gamers!”
Of course, today is the launch of the new Z490 motherboards as well as the new 10th Gen CPUs from Intel. Check out all of our Z490 reviews below.
