A key feature of the board is Thunderbolt 3 support: the integrated Intel controller provides image output in huge resolutions (so the motherboard is aimed at designers, CAD engineers, etc.) and very fast data exchange, with up to 6 devices connected to each port. Thunderbolt 3 ports have a Type-C connector and can be used for various needs, including as fast USB 3.1 ports. For Thunderbolt 3 support, which is still very rare to be found in motherboards, Gigabyte Z390 Designare receives our award.
The Z390 Designare is Solid motherboard, full-bodied, with excellent connectivity. It will serve those who seek the best of all worlds. For its versatility ,Z390 Designare got our recommended medal. Well done.More
We continue with our new temperature test. After 12 hours of prime95 in long duration we get a temperature in the VRM from 70 ºC to 73 ºC on average . There are some peaks, but the cooling capacity is very good. We recommend that this test is with the stock speed of the i9-9900k.
We believe that it is a highly recommended option for graphic design and enthusiastic PC configurations. So much for connectivity, features and components.
