Featuring the latest wireless solution, delivering speeds up to 2400Mbps and supports MU-MIMO and BSS color technology.
Onboard 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet LAN with gaming LAN manager.
3 x M.2 slots running at PCI-E Gen3 x4 bandwidth for ultra-fast NVMe based SSDs.
STABLE CORNERSTONE OF YOUR SYSTEM
6 layer PCB improves signal transmission for high performance capabilities across the motherboard.
Reinforced and shielded PCIe slots for strength and stability.
High quality power delivery components with ISL digital power, 90A Smart Power Stages, and titanium choke III reliably drive the CPU under the most extreme conditions.
Onboard power and reset buttons.
Aluminum Cover, VRM Heatpipe, and Frozr Heatsink keep temperatures in check and let the CPU power delivery system sustain extreme performance.
Sustain maximum M.2 SSD data transfer with M.2 SHIELD FROZR. Prevent SSD thermal throttling with a heatsink that extends across the motherboard.
The power delivery system on MEG Z490 UNIFY is built with an ISL Digital PWM, 16+1 phases with 90A Smart Power Stages, and dual CPU power connectors. Exclusive to MEG class models is Mirrored Power Arrangement on the Vcore phases for releasing true power.
Connect the rear USB Type-C port and quickly move large files including uncompressed video, raw images, and bulky simulation data, powered by the ASMedia 3242 chip. USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 reaches up to 20Gbps, four times faster than USB 3.2 Gen 1.
Pre-Installed IO Shielding makes handling the motherboard process easier and safer. The patent-pending design is grounded and protects the IO ports from potential electrostatic discharge damage from the external environment.
MEG Z490 UNIFY features onboard 2.5Gbps Ethernet LAN, for gamers who demand high-bandwidth and low-latency network connectivity. Prioritize latency-sensitive applications with MSI LAN Manager for a superior online experience.
Connect to a high-speed WIFI 6 network with onboard Wi-Fi 6. OFDMA and two-way MU-MIMO technology optimize data transmission and deliver speeds up to 2.4Gbps.
MSI takes memory stability and performance to the extreme. The memory circuit layout has been optimized for reliability and tested extensively in partnership with major memory manufacturers for compatibility.
A dedicated audio processor, ESS audio DAC, and headphone amplifier have been integrated into isolated audio circuitry to deliver game-changing studio grade sound.
MEG Z490 UNIFY supports both NVIDIA® SLI™ and AMD® CrossFire™ multi GPU technologies. PCI-E slot placements provide optimal airflow for graphics card cooling. MSI PCI Express Steel Armor slots are secured to the motherboard with extra solder points and support the weight of heavy graphics cards. When every advantage counts, Steel Armor shields the point of contact from electromagnetic interference.
