Will there be a stock issue like there is with your X570 motherboards? (lots of them are out of stock especially the entry level models like the X570-A Pro)
All MSI Z490 can do at least DDR4-4800 dual channel. GODLIKE and Z490I Unify (mini-ITX) can do DDR4-5000+.How much it can hold RAM and Bus Speed??
We'll have sufficient Z490 stock to meet the demand. But when a new platform comes out, the stock may be decreased gradually. Always let us know if you need certain products.Will there be a stock issue like there is with your X570 motherboards?

All MSI Z490 WiFi models equip the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax). Our suggest is go for a board with built-in Wi-Fi 6 if you need WiFi connection.Is the WiFI any good? Will the boards that come with built-in WiFi proide a better value than getting a standard motherboard and buying a separate WiFi adapter?
The main difference is thermal.Is there any difference between the MSI 2070 Super Gaming X and the Gaming X Trio apart from better thermals? Does the trio boast higher clocks?
Probably not this year or next year. But we're not sure at this moment how the aesthetics will be for next year or in the future.With the new release of Z490 MoBos, the prominent aesthetics are mainly black with RGB LEDs here and there.
In the future, does MSI plan to release the true MSI theme black & red themed MoBos and GPUs as well? E.g like the aesthetics were with Z170 MoBos and GTX 1060 GPUs.
RTX 2070 is more an upgrade for GTX1070. Performance wise, the difference between RTX 2060 and GTX 1070 is not impressive. If you need ray tracing or DLSS, it worths a replacement.Would an RTX 2060 be a useful replacement for a GTX 1070, or would it be more of a side-grade than an upgrade?
So you guys said in a post that the b450 max will support all existing and future am4 products, will you keep your word and let zen 3 run on b450 boards or will AMD not allow that?

MSI offers powerful VRM for Z490. Buildzoid, a VRM master, describes VRM on Godlike mega overkill. ACE/ Unify share the same VRM as Godlike. It's 16-phase, 90A VRM. MSI offers powerful VRM for MPG/MAG series too.MSI boards have a great reputation for VRMs. Will we receive the same with the new Z490 boards?
You only need to connect one. The other is extra power for overclocking.Why does this board provide 2x system panel connectors? I have never had a case that required more than one panel connector?
Also, while on the question subject, Your board provides a TPM module connector, but I never see any TPM chips to install on these connectors?
