In a departure from traditional motherboard designs, ASRock has unveiled the LiveMixer motherboard lineup for both Intel LGA1700 and AMD AM5 processors. Due to a leaked image of a PCB in its raw state, we first learned about these boards in August. We support daring designs that think outside the box since the style tends to elicit a Marmite response. Although Asus’ Evangelion motherboard comes to mind as another company that has followed in ASRock’s footsteps, we are happy to have options other than military camo and RGB spam.
Users will never run out of USB ports because there are a maximum of 23 available. Connect each and every auxiliary device, including keyboards, mouse, microphones, headsets, numerous cameras, fill-lights, macropods, and many more. The LiveMixer’s dual PCI-Express 4x slots, high-speed capture card, and Thunderbolt header enable simultaneous connections of a graphics card, a high-speed capture card, and a Thunderbolt add-in card. This overall improves the working and gives high-speed connections.
Lightning Gaming Ports are included in the LiveMixer and are specifically intended to deliver the lowest latency mouse and keyboard input. Lightning Gaming Ports connect using a separate controller, preventing signal lag and allowing for the lowest possible input jitter and latency. This is best for gamers who want low input and high ms response time. This will absolutely help them take up their gaming experience, especially in tournaments and competitive games where these things matter and can mean your victory or defeat.
This motherboard comes with a ddr5 support which is a recent boom in the industry of pc build and rigs. actually, there is never enough memory bandwidth, and DDR5 supports this unquenchable desire for speed. Initial DDR5 DIMMs give a 50% bandwidth boost to 4.8 GT/s, whereas DDR4 DIMMs have a maximum bandwidth of 3.2 GT/s at a clock rate of 1.6 GHz. In light of the latest release of AMD ddr5 processors, this motherboard will take your build to a next level if applied with both.
A feature on ASRock boards called “Ultra USB Power” converts the PSU’s 12V rail’s output to 5V rather than using the 5V rail directly to power the USB ports. This keeps the voltage from falling too far when the USB ports are drawing a lot of power. LiveMixer motherboards come with this feature as well helping take the watts of the PSU and optimizing the energy usage overall. The risks of short circuits or high voltage regulation also have less risk now making this motherboard your no1 choice.
Nonetheless, the major feature of these motherboards is their intricate design and the unique graffiti craftwork. Motherboards are not seen as beautiful in terms of appearance rather they are preferred more as subject to their capability and performance. So this is what makes these motherboards unique. As of now, they have two models launched in the market one with a purple design that dwindles with white and the other light-orange with a taste of light red.
Despite the overall similarities between the two boards, their designs and port options vary. For instance, the Z790 LiveMixer sacrifices two USB 2.0 ports for two USB 3.2 ports in comparison to the B650 LiveMixer. One 60A phase has been removed from the power supply system (on Z790, it is 14+1+1 instead of 14+2+1). (on B650). While DDR5 support is limited to 6,800MT/s for the Z790 model and 6,400MT/s for the B650.
Z790 LiveMixer receives one Gen 5 x16, two Gen 4 x16, one Gen 3 x1, one M.2 Key E for Wi-Fi modules, as well as one Gen 5 x4 M.2 slot and four Gen 4 x4 M.2 slots for storage in terms of PCIe. One PCIe Gen 4 x16 (no Gen 5 as it’s not an Extreme chipset), two Gen 4 x16, an M.2 Key E for Wi-Fi, one M.2 Gen 5 x4, and two M.2 Gen 4 x4 for storage are given to the red team. Keep in mind that the number of effective PCIe lanes and available bandwidth will depend on whether slots are occupied or not.
