EVGA releases three new Z97 motherboards

Written by Nick Farrell



Classified, FTW and Stinger lines

EVGA has just released three new motherboards based on Intel’s upcoming Z97 platform. For those who came in late, the Z97 chipset is an update to the Z87 chipset and uses the same LGA1150 socket for current Haswell processors. It will be compatible with the upcoming Haswell refresh as well as Broadwell CPUs when these become available.

EVGA’s boards are available under three lines targeted at the different needs of users there is the Z97 Classified board comes in the EATX form factor, and features SLI support, mSATA and overclocking software built into the BIOS. This is jolly expensive for a motherboard and will set you back $379.99. Then there is the Z97 FTW which has a similar suite of overclocking software, supports two-way SLI, and comes with an M.2 socket instead of an mSATA slot. This board will come in at $199.99.

Finally, there is the Z97 Stinger which is for those who want to build a small form factor system. It comes in the mITX form factor, has an mSATA slot and has onboard audio provided by Creative’s Core3D quad-core audio processor. This board will also retail for $199.99.

The word on the street is that the boards will begin shipping next month after the Z97 platform officially launches.
