When can we expect the 2020 GT76 Titan to come out and will it include a desktop RTX 2080 Super like the 2019 GT76 did with the regular 2080?

How are you dealing with the extra power consumption from the new 10 core i9 processors?

Reusing existing VRM designs? Completely new designs?
All off our Z490 motherboards feature Core Boost technology. It's a reserved zone of premium power delivery components on an optimized circuit layout. We designed larger heatsinks to improve VRM heat dissipation.

Is there anyway you can customize the small display on the "Godlike" board. Uploading custom gifs or pictures would be incredible. Is there at least integration with mystic light?
I have a current msi board but its fairly old (z97-g45) so i'm unfamiliar with msi's version of lighting customization .etc

Yes, you can upload your own by using free Dragon Center software. Also the new Dynamic Dashboard 2 is now in color. We also improved our mystic light from previous generations.

What does the future of VRM cooling look like for upcoming boards. Is it leaning more toward fans or more elaborate fin technology? Im waiting on the new B550 motherboardsand MSI is where I'm putting my money.
