MSI’s Z890 line includes two models: the Z890 EDGE and the Z890 PRO. The Z890 EDGE, part of the MSI MPG family, features a white aesthetic design with silver details, including the MSI dragon logo.

It has dual 8-pin connectors to power the LGA 1851 socket, located on the right side of the board, facilitating connection. In addition, the board has a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, a PCIe 4.0 slot and four M.2 slots, one of which is positioned under a larger heatsink with the EDGE logo.

Features of Z890 EDGE and PRO motherboards

The Z890 EDGE also offers an additional 8-pin connector for PCIe lines, five USB 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps) ports, and two USB4 Type-C ports. There are also Clear CMOS and Flashback buttons on the back, as well as support for WIFI 7.

The second model, the Z890 PRO, features a black and white aesthetic, similar to Gigabyte’s AERO G series. This board has the same 8-pin connectors on the right side and four M.2 slots, three Gen4 and one Gen5.

Among the quality of life improvements, the EZ PCIe Release, Screwless M.2 Shield Frozr, EZ M.2 Clip II and EX Antenna features stand out. The Z890 PRO is positioned as an entry-level option in the Z890 family.

In addition to the new Z890 boards, MSI also showed off the Z790 MPOWER motherboard. This model features Mini-CUDIMM slots, co-designed by MSI and Intel, which offer circuitry optimized for low latency and extreme overclocking. The board is powered by a dual 8-pin connector interface and features a DRPS 12+1+1 power design.

Another highlight is the MSI Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS, which comes with support for the CAMM2 memory module, based on DRAM chips from SK Hynix. This design promises to increase memory speeds compared to traditional DDR5 SO-DIMM modules. The CAMM2 standard is expected to become more common on desktop PCs in the coming years.
