The MSI Z490M Edge WiFi is a Micro ATX motherboard for Intel's 10th Gen Core Processors (code named Comet Lake). It sacrifices some of the expansion capacity that a larger motherboard can offer, but still supports dual video cards, up to 128GB of DDR4 memory, and multiple SATA and M.2 drives.

For external connectivity, it also has both analog and digital audio outputs, gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, six USB ports of varying speeds (including one Type C), and even a legacy PS/2 port. Thanks to the Intel graphics on the CPU, there are also HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs available.
