The announcement has been made at Computex 2019, where MSI has revealed its latest mid-range MOG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI motherboard. The motherboard comes with two PCle 4.0 M.2 slots, with six SATA ports, and two full-length PCle 4.0 slots. The MPG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI motherboard is a modest model in the line-up, and we can expect to see it on the market before AMD is launching the Ryzen 3000 processor. Let’s see what specifications we have on the model.
MPG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI Specifications
The specifications of the MPG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI are modest. The motherboard is using an Intel 3168 802.11ac Wi-Fi module that has the capacity for speed up to 433 Mbps. Also, on the rear panel, it has a single 1GBE LAN port, also controlled by Intel. The design of the MPG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI is similar to the MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon WIFI, only that the carbon decorations are missing, and it has a black PCB.
However, the motherboard has a single PCle 4.0 M.2 slot, and it’s cooled passively by a heat shield. The heat shield is called Lightning Gen 4 M.2, which is shaped on the cooled X570 chipset heatsink. Here we have an addition of another PCle 4.0 M.2 slot at the bottom of the board, but it is coming without a heatsink.
Also, two full-length PCle 4.0 slots are supported by two-way AMD CrossFire multi-graphics card setup, a pre-installed rear panel I/O, and four DDR4 memory slots. On the back panel, you will find five audio jacks with 3.5 mm, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, two USB 2.0, four USB 3.1 Type-A, and an S/PDIF optical output.
Finally, the MPG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI has an HDMI video output compatible with the AMD Ryzen APUs, a PS/2 combo port, and a BIOS flashback button.
