ASRock to launch first motherboard Intel Raptor Lake Refresh?

ASRock reveals updated Z790 and B650 motherboards. 

The ASRock Z790 Phantom Gaming Nova is an upcoming motherboard based on Intel’s highest chipset for 13th Gen Core CPUs. According to the official announcement, this motherboard will be the company’s first design to support WiFi7 and 5 GbE networking, just like the MSI Z790 MAX series revealed earlier this week. ASRock confirms that Z790 NOVA will feature 20+1+1 SPS Dr.MOS power delivery design.

Interestingly, ASRock emphasized that their NOVA board is prepared for even more hungry future CPUs. As we know, officially Intel did not confirm the company will be refreshing its Raptor Lake CPUs, but those are coming according to leaked roadmaps.

ASRock unveils its new PHANTOM GAMING lineup and proudly announces the high-end model Z790 Nova WiFi7, the NOVA symbolizes the dazzling light and energy of a star explosion which provides powerful support to the gamers. The new motherboard equipped with latest WiFi7 and 5Gbps LAN to provide fastest internet connection, and to support the even more power hungry future CPUs.

Thus far there was no mention that the refresh could consume more power, on a contrary, it was expected to support DLVR (Digital Linear Voltage Regulator), a feature listed for Raptor Lake desktop CPUs in late 2022. This feature was later confirmed to be disabled on the 13th Gen/700-series platform, but as suggested by ASUS, it might still be enabled for future CPUs. This technology was rumored to lower the power consumption of desktop CPUs by a visible margin.

ASRock is also unveiling new Z790 Riptide WiFi and Lightning WiFi boards. Furthermore, there is a new line of Taichi Lite series coming. The company promises to launch Z790 and B650 Taichi Lite boards, which are said to feature the same 24-phase VRM design, but should have ‘simplified concept design’.
