At Computex 2019, MSI has unveiled its flagship motherboard on the new AMD X570 chipset: the MEG X570 Godlike. It features a bundled 10 GbE add-in card, three onboard PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, another two M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots with an add-in card, six SATA ports, and four full-length PCIe 4.0 slots.

The new MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE represents its premium offering for enthusiasts and gamers with a range of high-end additions. Included in the accessories bundle is an Aquantia AQC107 10 GbE add-in card, and Twin Frozr M.2 PCIe add-on card which allows users to add an additional two PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 drives on top of the three that are present on the board. Each onboard M.2 slot includes its own individual Lightning Gen4 M.2 heatsink. The new X570 chipset is actively cooled by a single fan featuring double ball bearing technology.

The addition in terms of the design is a new OLED screen which is implemented between the four DDR4 memory slots and the 24-pin ATX 12 V motherboard power input. While the resolution output is currently unknown, we expect more details will be unveiled at its launch.

The MSI MEG X570 Godlike features a true 14-phase power delivery for the VCore; this power delivery uses the Infineon TDA21472 MOSFETs and uses an IR35201 Digital PWM controller. Providing power to the CPU is two 8-pin 12 V ATX CPU power inputs setting the Godlike up as MSI's most enthusiast-level desktop board for any AMD platform in recent times.

We may see MSI's X570 boards hit before the AMD 7nm Matisse processors hit the shelves, but no availability or pricing is currently available.
