ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming Velocita Motherboard Review

ASRock certainly make many of my favourite motherboard designs, the Taichi stuff is just always stunningly beautiful. However, now they’ve got the new PG Velocita, and it’s a bit of a looker too. With such a strong meaning velocity in Italian, dashing their product page with F1 cars and words like “fast, mysterious and unbeatable” and they even say themselves, it features uncompromised performance. You know this board is going to be fast, and frankly, if it isn’t, they’re going to look pretty stupid at the end of this review.

ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming Velocita Motherboard

On paper at least, they’re right up there with the best. There’s an impressive 13 Phase Dr.MOS Digital Power Design. That’s also topped with an XXL heatsink design that spans the top and left of the socket but also bridges with a huge heat pipe and features a built-in fan. There are 12K Nichicon caps throughout, improved gold connectors in the PCIe slots, flagship audio hardware, PolyChrome RGB lighting, loads of SATA ports and much more. They’re really thrown everything at this board to be a truly brilliant gaming motherboard. But will it be enough? If you’re looking for something a bit smaller, there’s the ASRock Z490 mini-ITX review here too.
