Can AMD come up with their own number schemes? Or do they want people to go out and buy mismatched motherboards and CPUs. Just bad form. Radeon group seems to be doing just fine not copying Nvidia.

When I read it, I though "Z490 is an Intel chipset... or is it?"

With 26 letters in the alphabet, you'd think they would use something else, right?

My thoughts exactly.

Intel has the
Z370
H370
H310
B360
X299

AMD now has
X470
X370
B350
X399

Its bad enough intel has the 100-200 series chipset for gen 6 & 7 CPUs and the 300 series for the 8th gen all on the same socket, which already confuses enough people. Now they have to contend with Intel and AMD naming chipsets almost the same.
 

Z490 will be 100 more numbers than Z390. That's an increase of over 25%! What more could you want? : D
