The MAX series is coming to the Z790 platform. MSI often uses this product moniker to refresh or upgrade their existing motherboards without having to wait for a new series. The Z790 ACE is the first board to receive the MAX treatment, and it is definitely not the only one planned.

MSI have now confirmed that Z790 MAX will get upgraded networking with up to Wi-Fi 7 support for wireless networks and 5 GbE for Ethernet. This contrasts with the existing non-MAX version which has dual 2.5 GbE and Wi-Fi 6E support.

The Z790 Ace MAX is not the only motherboard at Computex 2023 show floor. MSI is also giving a first look at its B650 Project Zero motherboard with connectors on the back.

All power connectors for power, fans, or peripherals are put on the back of the motherboard, which allows better and more elegant cable management, claims MSI. This, of course, means that a suitable chassis is required, but given that MSI also makes full systems and their cases, this should not be an issue.
