MSI Z490 Comet Lake-S Motherboards Appear on EEC
Mike Sanders / 1 month ago
Usually, one of the best early indicators of a product’s launch is when it gets registered with the EEC. Admittedly, this isn’t always reliable as often manufacturers will register products that never end up officially hitting shelves. With MSI registering a huge number of new motherboards, however, it seems that they’re more than ready for the upcoming launch of Intel’s Comet Lake-S processor range.
MSI Register Z490 Motherboards
In a report via Videocardz, MSI has just registered a whole bunch of new motherboards that are specifically designated as falling under the Z490 platform. The registration includes the follows:
- Z490-A PRO (Standard ATX)
- Creator Z490I (Mini-ITX)
- MAG Z490 TOMAHAWK (Standard ATX)
- MPG Z490M GAMING EDGE WIFI (Micro-ATX)
- MPG Z490 GAMING PLUS (Standard ATX)
- MEG Z490I UNIFY (Mini-ITX)
- MEG Z490 UNIFY (Standard ATX)
- MPG Z490 GAMING CARBON WIFI (Standard ATX)
- MPG Z490 GAMING EDGE WIFI (Standard ATX)
- MEG Z490 ACE (Standard ATX)
- MEG Z490 GODLIKE (E-ATX)
What Do We Think?
Based on this list, it seems pretty clear that MSI plans to release a full line-up of motherboards for the Intel Comet Lake-S platform. Of these, it isn’t too much of a leap to suggest that the Z490 MEG Godlike will represent their top-tier ‘flagship’ design.
With Intel set to formally release the Comet Lake-S within the next couple of months, however, MSI certainly seems ready for it!
