Hey TTL, this board has 3 video outs (please correct the video with a popup text).

1xHDMI is not the only video output on this board.
We have 3 outputs taking into account the 2x Display Port 1.4

Hope this helps ;)

USB 4 supports Display port 1.4 over USB C which can be achieved with below adaptor or natively with thunderbolt enabled display:

Asus z590 xiii hero
 
With the new Z590 XIII HERO shortly hitting retail shelves, many are simply appalled by $500 price-tag. Thus most who are now thinking to upgrade from several generations ago, are looking at the Z490 XII HERO boards to perhaps getting a better $$$ deal. Money these days (WFH) remains a hard swallow. From what I have been hearing, is that the Z490 boards generally all have been plagued with still unresolved Ethernet-Adapter and LAN issues. Example: A new mobo upon install cannot LAN connect, no matter what BIOS updating, cable replacement, driver updating, etc and hours of workarounds are done. Some say it's a Intel 225-V networking chip issue? RMA's abound.

Mobo manufacturer updates suggested that they fixed this problem with a newer Z490 board revision and where shipping these to retail shelves? Googling today however "Z490 Ethernet or LAN problems" show that the issue still persists and as experienced by AMAZON verified buyers and about 100 plus Z490 board purchasers I could quickly find on the Net. So how can one find a Z490 Gigabyte Master or ASUS VII HERO board today that will work 95% or 100% out of the box? And without me having to essentially (RMA) or building my new PC twice just because I want to save a few bucks. Does someone here has a better answer? Thoughts?

With having (4) M2 slots I gather that ASUS is betting on all present and future storage solutions to be NVMe based. Especially for deep pocket enthusiasts. Or those that could afford to purchase the XIII Hero in the first place. Adios Muchachos and mechanical HDD's. I guess that with about 90% of all current "boot-drives" already being SSD's the rest of the storage coming along is only natural. As the Mandalorian would say: "That is the way."
