ONE BOARD TO RULE THEM ALL – MEG Z690 GODLIKE

[Taipei, Taiwan] 

As Intel launched the 12th Gen Core processors and immediately gained lots of attention, MSI also released many motherboards for various usages. However, the best has yet to come until now. Today, the last member of the Z690 platform is here. The one board to rule them all – MEG Z690 GODLIKE.

GODLIKE’s number one goal for the end-users is evident, designed for the best performance and experience enabled by truly remarkable systems. Whether it’s record-breaking overclocking, ultra-customization of ARGB lighting with touch control LCD dashboard, or simply the desire to build the most powerful system imaginable, the MEG Z690 GODLIKE stands unrivaled at the pinnacle of all the Z690 motherboard capabilities.

One Universe Created with Premium Cooling

It is covered in dark, deep, and full aluminum heatsink fashioned with a triangular grid pattern. The illuminating dragon nebula with tempered glass reveals the power with a column of faith and meteor RGB effect. The MEG Z690 GODLIKE symbolizes the endless power of the one universe, ready for every challenge.

Under its powerful appearance, there are multiple patented-pending cooling solutions. The Dual Cross Heat-pipe connects two MOS heatsinks, while the exclusive Wavy Fin Design with 7W/mK Thermal Pad provides a great surface for heat dissipation. The Magnetic Double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr effectively reduces the high-speed M.2 temperature that helps gamers enjoy its extreme performance while having the lowest operating temperature.

 

M-Vision Dashboard

It is equipped with the industry’s first built-in touchable LCD. The 3.5 inch IPS LCD panel on the motherboard provides the next level of system diagnostics – hardware monitoring, reading debug codes, finding other useful information, and even customizing your display with dedicated MSI software. Moreover, the touchable function enables system operation, fine-tunes complicated PC settings, and even activates the windows function with customization in one touch.

The M-Vision Dashboard connects the motherboard with its easy to disassemble magnetic design. Furthermore, once connected with the GODLIKE rear USB port, the dashboard can operate independently. You can put the dashboard in front of your case, on your desk, or stick to your monitor for easy access. With just one touch, your PC operation received an entire new form.

No one would be happy spending so much money and not much later hear about the next chipset/motherboards premiere. I guess it will be this year but there was no official info. About the same story with $1.5k Z590 motherboards when Z590 was already dead 2 weeks after the premiere.
