DDR5 memory is available on all MSI Z690 models. The MSI Z690 motherboards provide excellent stability and performance thanks to MSI’s patented Memory Boost.

Furthermore, the power phases for all segments have been increased to accommodate the power of the 12th Gen Intel Core processors.

The new motherboard also has connector flexibility as all MSI Z690 motherboards use front Type-C connectors. The MEG Series even uses USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 with up to 20Gbps transfer speeds, which is a perfect match for MSI’s latest PC cases, which are the world’s first PC cases to enable front USB Type-C 20Gbps. The MEG Series motherboards contain a Thunderbolt 4 interface with a transfer rate of up to 40Gbps, which can accommodate an 8K monitor and is USB 4.0 compliant. MSI Z690 motherboards are also compatible with the latest Wi-Fi 6E solution.

The MSI Z690 motherboards also have an Extended Heatsink, Aluminum Cover, and other heat dissipation features. The MEG and MPG Series are fitted with a heat pipe that goes through the VRM heatsinks to sustain performance at high speeds. M.2 Shield Frozr with double-sided thermal on the motherboards can also help keep NVMe SSDs running at peak performance. An Aluminum Backplate is available on the MEG Series for the most ardent users. Heat can be transferred and spread from the thermal pads on the back to the backplate. The aluminium then dissipates heat.
