Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI uses a 17-phase power delivery system, in what looks to be a 14+2+1 configuration. For the CPU, power is fed from the 8-pin EPS connector(s) and sent to a Renesas ISL69269 (X+Y+Z=12) controller. In the middle of the board we find three PCIe slots (two full-length, one x4) and three M2 sockets.
