EVGA Teases AMD Motherboard

EVGA released a short teaser video for what appears to be their first AMD based motherboard offering. Traditionally, EVGA has only offered up motherboard based off of Intel chipsets, but the times are changing…

EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI – Tom’s Hardware

EVGA’s motherboard lineup for Z590 consists of two boards, the Z590 FTW WIFI and the flagship Z590 Dark. I do miss the ITX-based Stinger motherboard from a few generations back. It would be a good SKU to have, considering most partners offer at least one ITX option. We can’t say there is something here for everyone (no mATX either). However, EVGA brings quality motherboards to the table in what they do have.

EVGA Z490 Dark

Honestly the Z390 Dark was a great motherboard to begin with so i kind of understand why EVGA wouldn’t change many things about the Z490 Dark, especially its design and heatsink cooling system. Still even having a single PCIe 4.0 slot would be nice, not so much because it would propel GPU performance to new heights (it wouldn’t) but rather for marketing purposes. Again, I understand that by using two RAM slots EVGA can ensure higher stability levels but again some people may see this as something negative since they can’t expand the amount of memory later on.

EVGA Launches Intel 500 Series Motherboards

EVGA Z590 motherboards paired with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors bring unprecedented speed and bandwidth to the latest graphics cards and M.2 NVMe SSDs, along with improved performance across the board. Built with the Intel® Z590 Chipset, these motherboards are PCIe Gen4 ready with a data transfer rate up to 16 GT/s, doubling the previous generation. As befitting this milestone, EVGA designed and engineered these new motherboards from scratch, resulting in a pair of sleek-looking motherboards jam-packed with the latest features. Introducing the EVGA Z590 DARK and Z590 FTW WIFI motherboards – the first of a new generation of EVGA motherboard excellence.

THE EVGA Z590 DARK

The EVGA Z590 DARK once again strikes fear into the hearts of other Z590 motherboards by combining every ounce of power available to the Intel® Z590 chipset and fine-tuning it to perfection. This armed and fully-operational motherboard is born from a 10-layer PCB and powered by a 22-Phase VRM. With support for PCIe Gen4 graphics cards and M.2 NVMe SSDs, overclockers have nothing to fear when shooting for the highest scores in any benchmark. For everyone else demanding the ultimate in performance, the Z590 DARK is loaded with over a dozen USB options, eight SATA ports, two 2.5Gbps NICs + WiFi 6/BT 5.1, 7.1 Channel HD Audio, three M.2 Key-M slots, and two fan headers dedicated to AIO CPU Coolers. We’ve even included a nightlight with the DARK’s first-ever ARGB cover for those times when you might need to see what you’re doing. As a wise overclocker once said, “Once you start down the DARK path, forever will it dominate your destiny.” and with the EVGA Z590 DARK, that destiny is sure to be filled with shattered records and countless victories on the battlefield.

THE EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI

The EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI is what you’ve been waiting for to bring out the best of the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 processors, which now feature support for PCIe Gen4 graphics cards and NVMe SSDs. This motherboard redefines what it means to be For The Win with a completely updated aesthetic, a rededication to maximizing the features on an ATX form factor, and an unrelenting desire to give enthusiasts all the power, performance, and stability they can handle with a 17-Phase VRM and 8-layer PCB. In addition to blazing-fast 4800MHz+ memory support, WiFi 6/BT 5.1, DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0, and an excessive number of USB options, the EVGA Z590 WIFI also features multiple ARGB headers to customize your system lighting, a gigabit NIC, and 7.1 Channel HD Audio. The EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI is truly the next generation of FTW motherboards.

EVGA Z490 Dark

In this review I’ll be looking at what might be considered the only game in town for Extreme Overclocking, the EVGA Z490 Dark.  Much like what DFI did with their LanParty boards the EVGA Dark is what I would call a revision and enhancement to the EVGA Z490 FTW that improves and tunes the motherboard to handle all sorts of overclocking and extreme system builds while still offering out of box performance for fans of high-end hardware.

EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI

EVGA may be better known for graphics cards and power supplies, but the company has also been pushing into the motherboard realm for years, though with far fewer products than competitors like MSI or Gigabyte.The EVGA Z490 FTW WiFi that we’re looking at here sits at the ‘bottom’ of the company’s Z490 product stack, with the high-end Z490 Dark ($699.99) sitting above as the only other board on Intel’s current platform. You won’t find a Micro ATX or Mini ITX board from EVGA, just the ATX FTW and E-ATX Dark.

EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI

In this review we will be looking at the new EVGA Z490 FTW motherboard.  Visually this board is almost a direct copy of the EVGA Z390 FTW.  There are a few minor tweaks and an effort to include a few overclocking features found on the Dark edition.

EVGA Z490 FTW WIFI

EVGA has always gone their own direction and the Z490 FTW isn’t any different. In a lot of ways, this board looks a lot like previous FTW boards like the Z390 and Z370 models. Mostly because of the silver metal cover over the rear I/o and the otherwise plain styling on the rest of the board. EVGA has always been about simple and black and they always avoid lighting which makes the inclusion of RGB lighting an interesting addition.

EVGA Z390 Dark

The rotated CPU socket and DIMM slots do seem to help with airflow levels and the 17-phase VRM design does wonders when it comes to overclocking (can easily go well over 5GHZ on the i9-9900K if you have a very good cooler). RAM compatibility is also very good since the Z390 Dark supports modules with speeds surpassing 4600MHZ (we may get a chance to test some 4800MHZ modules on it to verify this).

EVGA X299 Dark

The retail box for the EVGA X299 Dark is rather plain with few product specifications on the box. You will notice the “Optane” logo in the corner. This is not Optane DCPMM. Instead, it is Optane memory via SSDs.
