Released back in November 2021, the ASRock Z690 Pro RS LGA 1700 motherboard remains a tempting Z690 solution compatible with 13th Gen Intel Core processors. While only compatible with DDR4 memory, the discounted price of US$184.59 makes this piece of hardware an even better deal than before.
With a list price of US$249.99, the ASRock Z690 Pro RS motherboard is a reasonably-priced LGA 1700 motherboard for both 12th Gen and 13th Gen Intel Core processors, as long as the user is willing to settle for DDR4 memory. Now, a 26% discount pushes this piece of hardware to what appears to be its lowest price ever (according to Camelcamelcamel). However, this is not the first time this motherboard drops to US$158.99. The aforementioned source reveals that this value was reached on October 30 2022 as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
