Rumour has it that the 400 series motherboards will be announced on April 30th, although the retail outlet is not set until the end of May. However, it seems that Asus didn’t want to wait and published pictures of its Prime Z490-A and Prime Z490-P motherboards on its website in advance, showing the design and some specifications. They also talked about H470, although there are no pictures.
This will be Asus’ entry into the Z490 chipset, which is the most economical model to get all the benefits of a Z chipset. The picture above reveals all its specifications, although it mentions the H470 chipset when the pressure on the motherboard clearly indicates that it is a Z490. It confirms the LGA 1200 socket for the tenth generation of Intel Core processors and the use of PCI-E 3.0.
Another picture that deals with M.2 heatsinks show what the Prime Z490-A looks like already with a much more robust design, with better heatsinks, better VRM and more connectors, which is the most powerful model in the Prime series.
In this way, we already know two of the new Asus motherboards two weeks before their official announcement. It will be interesting to see if more information comes out during the course.
