MSI MAG Z690 Tomahawk WiFi DDR4, Review in Spanish

Long live DDR4 memory

The Tomahawk is a board that uses DDR4 memory to make the transition to the latest CPU and connectivity technology cheaper and easier.


DDR4 memory

Simple and functional design

Excellent connectivity

Good temperatures


Somewhat high price

No built-in RGB lights

With the new generation of Intel processors, the new and very expensive DDR5 memory has come into our lives. However, for today’s review we have a board with a Z690 chipset and compatible with PCIe 5.0 that still uses the well-known DDR4 memory.

Packaging and accessories

The Tomahawk arrives in a black and gray cardboard box that is decorated with a photo of the license plate on the front. On the back there is another similar photo but in this case with details about the main characteristics of this plate. Then I leave you with a list of what is inside.

  • MSI MAG stickers
  • MSI emblem
  • User manual
  • Fast guide
  • SATA III 6Gb / s cables
  • WiFi antennas
  • Clips for M.2 ports
  • 16Gb Pendrive

Design and build

The MAG Tomahawk is a license plate ATX format, so it has the typical dimensions of 30.5 x 24.4cm. It is built on a 6-layer black PCB which has a series of silkscreens in white and gray. Its design is quite simple and it can be a bit boring since the only color note is in the area dedicated to the integrated audio. But I’ll talk about this later.
