    Rumour is that the Z490 Tomahawk is going to be $120 USD, with 12+1 phase VRMs. If that comes out to be true then 10600k+Tomahawk is easily going to be the best gaming combo.

    Improved power delivery, more PCIe lanes and support for PCIe gen 4 when Rocket Lake launches

    I doubt it considering the VRM quality and all the new pcie4 and external clock gen/2.5Gb LAN, I expect all the Z490 boards to be as expensive as the X570 boards. They are expensive for what they are but at least this time we are paying for boards with proper power delivery and better PCB instead of paying for RGB and the brand tax.

    Even if they were cheaper up front what are the running costs going to look like for these beasts?

    ...200W that's hefty.
    300W is insane for a cpu.
    i'm quite partial to intel products. but no freakin way man. :p
    i'll wait for the next node. or something.

    any pics of a z490 yet?

    but all is good. they'll thermal throttle like buggery. but should yield us some very robust motherboards....for a price.
    sure are some prerty mobos there..

    if thats a 140usd motherboard, i'm donald duck.

    Those 9900k numbers seem way off for PL2. A 9900k will happily draw up to 200w under full load with MCE (enabled by default on most Z motherboards). I'd expect similar PL2 numbers for the 10700k given it's all core boost clock is the same. Also from what I've read any super higher 250-300w draw would only apply to the 9 series that have the new all core thermal velocity boost. 7 series and lower don't have thermal velocity boost.

    The rumour is $119.99. That's what Tom's reported it as. Appears tho that most of the cheaper boards remain in the $150 range, at this point only waiting on GB and MSI for low end pricing now. Hopefully GB can hit it out of the ballpark again with the UD/Gaming X

    not for the tomahawk board in that pic. msi/gb will bring out cheaper boards compatible with 10th gen i guess.

    Based on Z390 equivilents, and the specs on MSI website it doesn't make sense it would be that cheap - I thinkit should either be $159 or 169, or even slightly above the Gaming Plus (can't really tell which of those two is supposed to tier above the other - why do they have such a ridiclous number of models?!)

    seems reasonable to assume they would. any process shrink of their chips or parts of them should improve tdp. 1151 has been around for a long time now.

    The extra pins are for
    So some to feed the beast the rest are likely for PCIe 4.0, since Comet Lake doesn't support PCIe 4.0 it's expected these boards will support Rocket Lake as well.

    They'll do it the same time mobo manufacturers stop using more stupid and ridiculous names.

    Realised this morning booting up my work PC that it says some rubbish about MSI Military Grade. Like they've made anything of quality :lol:
