ASRock Z490 Taichi Review: Mid-Range Pricing and Features, High-End Looks

ASRock’s mid-range Z490 Taichi is an interesting beast. The Taichi brand has a track record of using capable, high-quality VRMs, a well-balanced feature set, premium appearance and a price point that doesn’t break your build budget. The Z490 Taichi version continues that trend with a 14-phase VRM (12 for Vcore), USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 rear Type-C, Intel Wi-Fi 6, premium Realtek Audio and a moderate $369.99 price. While that price is higher than Z390 version, the increase ($90) is proportional to most other models when stepping up from Z390 to Z490 boards.

ASRock brought a slew of motherboards to its Z490 lineup (13 according to the company’s website) from the flagship Z490 Aqua (review upcoming), the Z490 PG Velocita we reviewed already, to the Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 which we’ll review soon. Classic boards such as the budget-oriented Z490 Extreme 4 ($184.99) also make an appearance on Z490.
