The ASRock Z390M-STX MXM motherboard sets itself apart by providing enthusiast-class component support and I/O in an impossibly small footprint.
Internally, an LGA 1151 socket supports Intel CPUs up to 95W, while the MXM Type B+ slot enables installation of compatible MXM-format GPUs (including nVidia's latest generation of parts) – not to mention a trio of Ultra M.2 (2280) slots for PCIe Gen3 high-speed SSDs.
Meanwhile, a plethora of USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2 ports and Ethernet enable robust data connectivity, with four separate display ports across three formats (HDMI, DisplayPort and mini DisplayPort) enabling multi-monitor usage at resolutions up to 4K@60Hz.
