Details

MSI MEG X570 UNIFY

                                          

The MSI MEG X570 UNIFY AM4 ATX Motherboard is built on the AMD X570 chipset, supporting second- and third-generation AMD Ryzen processors with an AM4 socket. It has four memory slots for up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, which can be overclocked to up to 5000 MHz and above. For storage, it's equipped with four SATA III ports and three M.2 slots. Moreover, there are three PCIe 4.0 x16 slots for graphics cards and two PCIe 4.0 x1 slots for other PCI-based hardware. Other integrated features include Realtek RT8125 2.5 GbE, Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and Realtek ALC1220 7.1-channel HD audio.

AMD X570 Chipset

The AMD X570 chipset is designed around 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 3000-series processors. Along with multiple improvements, its most noteworthy one is the addition of PCIe 4.0. PCIe 4.0 has roughly double the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0, which is beneficial for graphics cards, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more.

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) & Bluetooth 5.1

The Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard provides higher network efficiency, faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater coverage, and improved battery life for connected devices. Bluetooth 5.1 also provides users with cable-free device connectivity.

Lightning Gen 4 PCIe

Aside from the increased transfer speeds with PCIe 4.0, MSI's Lightning Gen 4 PCIe slots are reinforced with steel and built with a server grade PCB for additional durability. Please note that PCIe 4.0 is backwards compatible with PCIe 3.0.

Cooling

MSI motherboards utilize heavy-duty heatsinks on the MOSFETs for reliable processor power delivery and on the chipset to ensure the system stays operational under intense workloads. It's also equipped with multiple DC/PWM fan headers for users to connect additional cooling solutions. Users can set their cooling preference (Boost/Balance/Silence) as needed within the Dragon Center software or its UEFI BIOS. Moreover, MSI's M.2 SHIELD FROZR heatsink helps to prevent SSD throttling.

CPU

A combination of an optimized circuit layout and MSI's CoreBoost CPU power delivery system ensures performance and stability for high-end processors. Additional features include load-line calibration, overvoltage protection, a digital power design, and double power connectors.

Memory

MSI motherboards feature an optimized memory circuit layout and extensive compatibility testing with major memory manufacturers. Users can also easily overclock their RAM with A-XMP profiles within BIOS.

Storage

With the addition of PCIe 4.0, M.2 storage solutions can operate at up to 64 Gb/s with an appropriate card. This motherboard is equipped with three M.2 slots and four SATA III ports for traditional hard drives. Additional features include:

 

  • AMD StoreMI - Combines SSD and HDD storage into a hybrid drive to improve read/write speeds with larger capacity
  • Storage Boost - Automatically checks and optimizes SSDs to keep them performing at their best
  • M.2 Genie - Easily set up your M.2 SSDs in RAID 0 with fewer steps

Audio

This motherboard is built with multiple hardware and software enhancements to improve sound quality including:

 

  • Realtek ALC1220 Audio Processor - Supports DSD Super Audio CD 120 dB SNR/32-bit playback and recording
  • Golden Audio Jack & S/PDIF - Ensures a better connection from devices
  • Isolated Audio Design & Separated Audio Layers - Audio components and circuits on separate PCB layers are located on a reserved spot on the motherboard and electronically isolated to preserve audio integrity
  • Nahamic 3 - Enhances audio playback and provides users with multiple audio adjustments including virtual 7.1-channel surround sound
  • VoiceBoost - Lowers game audio when users are speaking for improved clarity
  • De-Pop Protection - Prevents loud popping noises when devices are plugged/unplugged or when the system is turned on/off
  • Dedicated Headphone Amplifier - Automatically detects impedance up to 600 Ohms for studio-grade sound quality

USB 3.2 Gen 1 & Gen 2

USB 3.2 Gen 1 features a maximum throughput of 5 Gb/s. USB 3.2 Gen 1, USB 3.1 Gen 1, and USB 3.0 are synonymous. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, USB 3.2 Gen 2 features a maximum throughput of 10 Gb/s when used with compatible devices and is synonymous with USB 3.1 Gen 2.

MSI MEG X570 UNIFY

Whether you build a new PC or upgrade the existing one, the motherboard is the most vital component to choose when you have already picked the processor of your choice.
 

It is important to keep a few things in mind while purchasing the mainboard: 


Pick up the Right Socket: You can single out a great CPU from either Intel or AMD, but whatever CPU you choose, make sure your mainboard has the right socket for the selected CPU. The latest mainstream AMD chips use AM4 sockets while current Intel 9th Gen Core CPUs require LGA 1151v2 sockets.


Motherboard Sizes: Motherboards typically come in three sizes from largest to smallest: ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ATX motherboards. ATX motherboards offer the highest number of RAM and expansion slots. If you are looking for a budget build, you can use a smaller chassis with the micro or mini boards, but you'll have to settle for fewer PCIe slots, RAM banks, and other connectors.
 

Number of RAM Slots: Most mainstream boards these days have four RAM slots, although Mini-ITX models often have just two, and high-end boards frequently offer eight. The amount of slots, of course, limits the amount of RAM you can install.
 

Motherboard ports: It’s essential to check the I/O area on a motherboard to make sure it has the external connection options you need. You may need more USB 3 ports while others may want more audio ports. Among the most common ports, there are USB 3, USB 2, audio, USB type C, USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, HDMI, Display port, PS/2 and Thunderbolt 3 ports. Ports one probably want the most are USB 2 and USB 3 Gen1 ports, as the first one is perfect for keyboard, mouse, and many other devices and the later one work with most peripherals. USB 3.1 Gen2 and USB Type-C ports will come handy in the near future, although most peripherals do not support this standard yet.
 

Motherboard Chipsets: CPU mainly dictates the compatible chipset options. For Intel motherboards, one can choose from the cheaper options that can’t be overclocked or the expensive ones that can. Chipset with the letter 'Z' in the name has the overclocking feature and chipsets with letters 'B', 'H', 'Q'… do not come with this particular feature.
