ASUS Leaks Intel 10th Gen Z490 Motherboard with LGA1200 Socket

It looks like ASUS has slipped up and leaked Intel’s upcoming Z490 board ahead of the official launch. The product page for the ASUS Prime Z390-P shows the product details about its successor, the Z490-P instead of the former.

As you can see, most of the specs are identical to the Z390-P. The primary chance is the new LGA1200 socket. Memory has been upgraded to support 4600MHz DDR4 in OC mode. The M.2 and SATA capabilities are unchanged with 2 and 4 ports, respectively. USB 3.2 Gen 1 has also been added with four front and two back ports. Furthermore, there are two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports on the back as well.

Overall, the Z490 boards are looking to be an incremental upgrade over their processors, much like the Comet Lake-S processors themselves. The official announcement is slated to come on the 31st of April, followed by a hard launch in May. The prices are expected to be the same or slightly higher than the 9th Gen Coffee Lake offerings.
