Major improvements are said to be primarily aesthetic, with enhanced RGB lighting, a revised integrated I/O shield to make PC builds easier and a second M.2 heat spreader.
A sample is already on its way to our review lab, so stay tuned to see our benchmark results and full review.

Meanwhile, the Z390 Phantom Gaming X is the next step beyond model nine, which probably means the X is for Roman numeral 10 rather than 'extreme.' Either way, it comes with a little more of everything, including more I/O panel USB ports (six), more networking (2.5 Gb, plus dual Gigabit Ethernet), a full coverage panel over the slot area and the latest 2.4Gb 802.11ax Wi-Fi.
Available starting May 31, you can order the Z390 Phantom Gaming X now at Newegg for $330 (opens in new tab).
