EVGA Reveals Their Z97 Haswell-Refresh Compatible Motherboards
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
EVGA has just revealed their lineup of new motherboards that are hitting the market along side the launch of Intel’s Haswell refresh. The new boards are pretty much what you would have expected from EVGA, and they’re actually very similar to their EVGA Z87 Classified and EVGA Z87 Stinger, but of course they’ve now been bumped up to support the latest Z97 chipset.
The EVGA Z97 Stinger Mini-ITX features a 10-layer PCB, supports to DDR3 2666MHz DIMMs, four SATA 6Gbps ports, 1 x PCI-e x16 and 5.1 Creative Core 3D audio.
The EVGA Z97 FTW features an ATX form factor, 4 x PCI-e x16 slots, eight SATA 6Gbps ports, four DDR3 DIMM slots, 1 x M.2 connector, dual bios and voltage read points, but no Creative Audio chip like the mini-ITX model.
The flagship of the range is the EVGA Z97 Classified, featuring four DDR3 DIMM slots, eight SATA 6Gbps ports, five PCI-e x16 slots, dual Intel network controllers, one mPCIe slot, Creative Core3d Audio, triple BIOS and support for LucidLogix Virtu MVP 2.
The range starts at $199 for the Stinger right up to $379 for the Classified, not cheap, but they do look pretty awesome, so we look forward to seeing how they perform in the coming weeks and month.
