ASRock X570 PG Velocita Motherboard Review

In the past few months, ASRock have recently introduced a new selection of motherboards called PG Velocita. The PG Velocita is a brand new high end product line under the Phantom Gaming family, and is packed full of features, while offering great looks and performance. So, today we’ll be taking a quick look at the ASRock X570 PG Velocita motherboard, which utilizes the X570 chipset and supports all of the latest Ryzen processors from AMD, including the 2000, 3000, 4000 G-Series and 5000 Series. It also supports PCIE 4.0 and memory speeds of up to DDR4-5000+ (OC).

Other attractive features include the onboard Killer WiFi6 and 2.5GB LAN, 7.1 HD Nahimic Audio, and as well as 3 x USB 3.2 Gen2 (Rear Type A+C, Front Type-C), and 10 x USB 3.2 Gen1 (4 Front, 6 Rear)!

The motherboard also comes with 2 x Hyper M.2 slots that supports PCIE 4.0, as well as 2 x PCIe 4.0 x16 slots and 3 x PCIe 4.0 x1 slot. And as usual, it comes with ASRock’s unique features as as the 14 Power Phase Design, Digi Power, Dr. MOS and of course Polychrome sync.

One thing I like about this motherboard, are the onboard power-on/off and reset buttons, as well as the diagnostic LEDs. These features are usually found on higher-end models, so you already begin to know, what to expect in terms of performance and quality.

We’ve already reviewed the original ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X last year, and it proved to be an excellent motherboard. So you’re probably asking … what’s the difference between the PG Velocita and the Phantom Gaming X?

Well, apart from the price difference (Phantom Gaming X  being more pricey) and as far as I can tell, the X570 Phantom Gaming X comes with a little more RGB LEDs, and has an extra PCIE 4.0 slot, which means it gives you more options for configuring NVIDIA NVLink, Quad SLI, or AMD 3-Way CrossFireX. There’s also a large, full coverage, XXL Aluminum alloy heatsink which looks really cool. Apart from that, they’re literally the same board.

 

 

I would like to thank ASRock for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what ASRock has to say about themselves on their website:

ASRock Inc. is established in 2002, specialized in the field of motherboards. ASRock strives to build up its own brand. With the 3C design concept, “Creativity, Consideration, Cost-effectiveness”, the company explores the limit of motherboards manufacturing while paying attention on the eco issue at the same time, developing products with the consideration of eco-friendly concept.

ASRock has been growing fast and become world third largest motherboard brand with headquarter in Taipei, Taiwan and branches in Europe and the USA. The young and vibrant company targets from mainstream to enthusiast MB segments for different kinds of users, owning reputation around the world market with its reliability and proficiency.

We’ll be testing the motherboard using our Ryzen 5 5600X featuring 6 cores/12 threads with onboard, 16GB of Antec Katana DDR-3600, along with a 500GB PCIE Gen4 SSD from Gigabyte. I’m expecting the results to be similar to other X570 motherboards we’ve tested in the past.

Let’s dive straight in and begin by taking a look at the specifications and features in the next page. You can buy the original ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X motherboard for around USD $349 from Amazon – https://amzn.to/37RFlaz
