Yesterday, EVGA introduced the Z690 Classified. Designed to support Intel’s latest 12th generation Core series processors, the always overbuilt motherboard includes a 19-phase VRM, dual 2.5 GbE NICs and EVGA’s unique style on this EATX SKU. You’ll find several USB ports on the rear IO including two 20 Gbps Type-C ports among a slew of other features. You can find this board at a wallet-emptying $629.99.

Yesterday, EVGA announced the X570 FTW WIFI ATX motherboard. Designed around AMD’s AM4 socket, the X570 WIFI is waiting for a compatible Ryzen CPU. Power delivery is managed via the 15-phase digital VRM power section. Other features include Native PCIe 4.0 and M.2 Gen 4.0, four slots of DDR4 4600+, Intel AX1600 WiFi6, Bluetooth 5.2, and much more. Listed for $499 on the EVGA website, the X570 FTW WIFI is one of the more expensive motherboards on the market, though its big brother, the X570 Dark, is even more.

Yesterday, EVGA launched the X570 Dark E-ATX motherboard for AMD’s Ryzen CPUs. This marks EVGA’s first AMD motherboard since the Athlon 64 era (yes, it really HAS been that long!). The EVGA website lists the board for $689.99. While this is a high price point, we feel there will be more than a few enthusiasts willing to pay for this rare overclocking beast. The X570 Dark incorporates unique features such as a rotated socket and DIMM slots as well as 90° connectors for the ATX, EPS, and SATA connectors which helps with cable management. It also features two-way SLI capability (rare on AMD platforms), dual Intel 2.5 Gigabit NICs, and eight fan headers (2x 3A Pump, 2x CPU PWM, & 4x PWM/DC).

EVGA just announced its SuperNOVA P6 series fully modular power supplies with power ratings of 650W, 750W, 850W, and 1000W. The SuperNOVA P6 is EVGA’s most compact 80+ platinum ATX power supply at only 140 mm long. All four models feature a full-bridge, LLC Resonant Rectification, and a DC-DC design providing excellent efficiency and voltage regulation. Currently, only the 850W and 1000W models are available and are priced at $219.99 and $299.99 respectively. The 650W and 750W versions are coming soon but prices have not been published. Here is EVGA’s official press release.
EVGA has released two motherboards in preparation for Intel’s upcoming 11th Gen Core processors. The EVGA Z590 Dark is a flagship E-ATX motherboard with 22 VRM phases and has been designed with massive overclocking potential and maximum performance. The EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI features 17 VRM phases and is geared for top enthusiast-level performance. As with all Z590 chipset motherboards, support for PCIe Gen4 graphics cards and NVMe SSDs is right at your fingertips. Below is EVGA’s press release.
Today EVGA released a new BETA version BIOS for its 3080 FTW3 Ultra GPU that raises the power limit from 400 watts to 450 watts. While this isn’t a massive increase it may be enough to help stabilize your overclock. Naturally, updating to this BIOS does not guarantee an increase in performance but does provide for the possibility. Users who choose to install this BETA version should also verify they have adequate cooling as an increase in wattage will, in turn, increase temperatures.
EVGA’s lineup for the Intel Z490 platform consists of the DARK and FTW WiFi. The DARK is tailored for extreme overclockers and serious enthusiasts. However, if you’re after a more conventional, but still feature-rich gaming motherboard, then the FTW is worth taking a look at. Even though the DARK is their flagship motherboard, EVGA hasn’t overlooked the FTW in terms of overclocking support tools and features.
