On the back of a numerous of brand-new motherboard releases primarily based on AMD’s X570 chipset, we have the MSI MEG X570S Ace Max. The new Max motherboard supersedes the earlier X570 Ace, and fittingly has plenty of unique and advanced capabilities. Some of the greatest features of the new Ace Max include things like a huge 18-phase power delivery with high quality 90 A power stages and the inclusion of an Intel Wi-Fi 6E wireless user interface. Some other features include four PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots, support for DDR4-5300 memory, and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet.
Possibly on par with MSI’s flagship X570 model, the MSI MEG X570S Ace Max motherboard appears to be to take things to the next stage with a attractive all-black design with contrasting gold lines and multiple areas of integrated RGB lighting effects. Looking at PCIe support on the X570S Ace Max, it contains three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots that work at x16 or x8/x8/+x4, with a single PCIe 4.0 x1 slot. The latter of which regrettably shares bandwidth with the Wi-Fi 6E module, so whenever that is in use, the slot is disabled.Looking at storage space opportunities, the MSI MEG X570S Ace Max new motherboard has 4 PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots, including 3 with support for SATA drives, as well as 8 SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, and 10 arrays. MSI at the same time includes an M.2 Xpander-Z Gen4 S M.2 PCIe 4.0 addon card for users looking to add more M.2 storage. Memory support is also outstanding, with support for up to DDR4-5300 and a max supported capacity of up to 128 GB through 4 memory slots. Attempting to keep the system cool is a mixed total of eight 4-pin headers, such as one designated to a CPU fan, one for a water pump, and 6 for case fans. MSI also has a premium power delivery, with an 18-phase design using 90 A power stages compared to the 60 A power stages used on the original MEG X570 Ace.

It uses a Realtek RTL8125B 2.5 GbE controller for Ethernet, and Intel’s latest AX210 Wi-Fi 6E wireless interface for Wi-Fi, providing access to the 6 GHz band and support for BT 5.2 devices. There is also a good onboard audio pairing of a Realtek ALC4082 HD audio codec and an ESS Sabre 9018Q2C DAC. Video: YouTube MSI Gaming
