EVGA may be a fairly small player when it comes to motherboards but they are never one to miss the launch of a high-end Intel platform, at the end of the day its enthusiasts that make up the bread and butter of EVGA’s customer-base. With X99 EVGA is planning the launch of a few motherboards such as a high-end Classified model, rumoured to cost around $400, and a FTW model. Catering to the small form factor market EVGA will also be releasing a micro-ATX X99 motherboard, pictured above.
The EVGA X99 Micro offers a 10 phase CPU VRM, four DDR4 slots, onboard power & reset buttons, a debug LED, six SATA III ports, three PCIe 3.0 X16 slots, a variety of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports as well as an mSATA port near the CMOS battery. The expected price point for the EVGA X99 Micro is rumoured to be $250 which isn’t bad considering how expensive DDR4 kits and Haswell-E CPUs will be. No doubt this board will be popular for LAN rigs built inside micro-ATX cases like the BitFenix Prodigy M and Corsair Carbide Air 240.
