BIOSTAR has announced the development of two new flagship boards for Intel’s 11th generation Rocket Lake-S processors. The Z590 VALKYRIE (ATX) and Z590I VALKYRIE (Mini-ITX) are part of a new series called VALKYRIE, which seems to be defined by its all-black color scheme and gold and red fabric. You can see the full specifications in the table below, but some of the features announced include the 22-phase power design, digital PWM, Dr. MOS, and PCIe 4.0/DDR4-5000+ memory support.

Based on Intel’s latest Z590 chipset, BIOSTAR’s VALKYRIE series motherboards are the next generation of enthusiast motherboards on the market, the press release said. The Z590 VALKYRIE (ATX) and Z590I VALKYRIE (Mini-ITX) are available in two versions with two different form factors and feature a fully shielded chassis. This underlines BIOSTAR’s aim to create a range of high-end motherboards that integrate form, function and wow factor into the product range.

With features like PCIe 4.0, which is 2x faster than the previous PCIe 3.0 and supports a bandwidth of 16Gbps, the Z590 VALKYRIE outperforms its competitors in both style and technology. With up to 128GB of DDR4 memory on 4 DIMMs at increased clock speeds of up to 5000+(OC), the VALKYRIE series is suitable for all applications and can easily manage the best hardware in the toughest conditions.
