ASRock mocks MSI and ASUS for copying their design
ASRock on Facebook posted a video mocking two motherboard makers for being ‘too inspired’ by their X570 AQUA ultra-premium design.
ASRock X570 Aqua is a special limited motherboard for enthusiasts based on AMD 500 series chipset. This motherboard was unique for many reasons, such as being the first ASRock motherboard to feature a water cooling monoblock or departing from the brownish Taichi design into luxurious black and silver look.
At CES 2021, ASUS and MSI both revealed their ultra-premium Z590 motherboards. The ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial is a flagship motherboard from ASUS, which is equipped with a monoblock design by EK. The motherboard also features an OLED display (something that AQUA lacks). This motherboard will retail at a jaw-dropping 1516 EUR. On the other hand, we have the flagship Z590 motherboard from MSI. The Z590 GODLIKE is an E-ATX motherboard without a monoblock, but the design principle is clearly inspired by other designs. This motherboard will cost no less than 999 EUR in the European market.
ASRock was quick to notice how much the new ASUS and MSI motherboards are alike and from whom they might have borrowed the idea from:
It’s been boring for a while. Happy to see someone’s finally in the game after two generations.
