SuperMicro C9Z390-PGW Z390 LGA1151 Motherboard Review

Motherboards/Intel S1151 by stefan @ 2019-02-10

SuperMicro have quite impressed us with their latest C9Z390-PGW board, that features server-quality hardware components for the VRMs, a Broadcom ExpressLane PLX PEX 8747 that is able to take x16 lanes from the CPU and outputs no less than x32 PCI-E 3.0 lanes, that helps when using dual-VGA configurations, no less than two LAN interfaces, one being 10Gbit (Aquantia® AQC107 10G Ethernet Controller) and a good Realtek ALC1220 implementation. Wi-Fi is also available via the pre-installed Intel AC 9560 module, that also comes with Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility.
