Now seems like the perfect time to build a new PC. We’ve got new processors from both Intel and AMD and new graphics cards from the usual suspects. Plus, there really isn’t a shortage of parts either, so you can easily build or upgrade your system without worrying about whether your local PC store or online store has the part you’re looking for.

This board features a 24+1+2 power phase design, PCI-Express 5.0 support for both graphics and storage, USB 3.2 gen 2×2 support, WiFi 6E, and of course that cool Taichi design we know from ASRock! Is this the board you need for your new Rocket Lake system? Read on as we find out!
