Z390 Power Delivery Specifications & Comparison

Prior to the launch of the new Z390 chipset, we reached out to all of the motherboard vendors to ask what power deliveries each board is equipped with. The setup and capabilities of the power delivery system on a motherboard are becoming an ever popular buying requirement, and manufacturers have taken notice of this. Especially as we have reported in a couple of our reviews now, that some boards are being embellished with claims above and beyond what they can actually support.

As it's been one of the most requested aspects of our Z390 content, we compiled as much information as we currently have in hand. This is what we've been able to pull from manufacturers in terms of specification sheets (directly from source), as well as other board information. In the below table a question mark (?) denotes that we don't currently have this information available. We don't want to speculate on what might be there, but when we get more information we will keep this table updated.

As we get more information, we will update the table. We also have some motherboards in for review, so we can go into a deeper analysis on each individual article over the next few months.

    Also the front page in the description and table lists the Supermicro boards beginning with P9Z30 but the model names are C9Z390-xxx Reply

    Thanks for pointing that out, updated :) Reply

    58 motherboards, only 13 of which are smaller than ATX. When on earth are we going to move off this outdated oversized format? Its just more of the same every time, so depressing. Reply
  • gavbon - Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - link

    13 is better than 0, or 12 :D Reply
  • MadAd - Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - link

    Considering very small form formats (ITX) are harder to build for and only 7 are uATX, a size which is the most useful to transition away from ATX then no, it feels like an afterthought from a lazy industry. I mean who uses more than 1 main video card and 2-4 sticks of ram in a gaming PC these days? Even water builds into uATX isnt that hard to accomplish.

    After literally decades ATX should be a choice for edge cases not a mainstream build.

    who cares about midge boards! Reply

    All these MB with 2x 8 pin power inputs, is both mandatory and if so I guess new PSU will need 2x 8pin now. Reply

    so it's ok to just buy SM motherboards now with them being involved in a security scandal? Reply
