Wifi & Bluetooth Built in. Pcie 4.0 Ready for perhaps 11th Gen Intel Processors. This board has everything needed in a compact form... Fast Wifi and Bluetooth including 2 aerials. Pcie Gen 4.0 ready. Z490 for all the Intel 10th gen K processors. Two M.2 slots, one with a cooling heatsink... Bought this for an i5 10600K and looking to add an Nvidia 3070 when they become available again. Hoping to utilise the Pcie 4.0 with an 11th gen intel i5 K when available, fingers crossed. So technically futureproofed to some degree providing Intel provide 11th gen on socket 1200 and Z490 chipset. For now though everything performs well and the i5 is ideal for any gaming scenario. After lots of research for a Z490M board, this was the only one I could find in any brand to fulfill all of my tick boxes. Just waiting for Pcie 4.0 now from Intel..
