    21-phase vrm...I hope this will be able to handle Alder Lake cpu.
    If this trend with completely ignoring power consumption continues the budget Z990 motherboards will have 25 phase vrm.

    quote from guru3d alder lake article :
    "As of now, the current norm for these CPUs is that they can boost indefinitely unless the PC maker (or, in the case of self-build, the user) decides otherwise in order to keep within the limitations of the cooling and power supply systems."

    Pretty sure the Kingpin mobo isn't aimed at your average user. Probably not for most enthusiasts either. Extreme overlockers need extreme boards.
