EVGA teases its upcoming X99-based mATX motherboard

Haswell-E ready mATX motherboard

EVGA has now officially teased one of its upcoming Intel X99 Express chipset based motherboards designed for Intel's new Haswell-E LGA2011-3 CPUs, the mATX EVGA X99 Micro.

Although leaked earlier, in some rather blurry pictures, together with some of the other EVGA X99-based motherboards, including the X99 Classified and the X99 FTW, we now have some clearer look at EVGA's mATX X99-based motherboard.

Based on a mATX form-factor, the new EVGA X99 Micro features the 10-phase VRM design, four DDR4 memory slots on each side of the LGA2011-3 socket with support for up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, on-board power and reset buttons, LED POST, six SATA 6Gbps ports, three PCI-Express 3.0 slots, bunch of USB 3.0 adn USB 2.0 ports, as well as a single mSATA slot placed between PCI-Express slots.

While it lacks some features seen on bigger ATX form-factor motherboards, like the new SATA-Express port, we are quite sure that this one will be quite popular for high-performance SFF rigs.

Earlier rumored price for the EVGA X99 Micro puts it at somewhere around US $250, which is not bad for a feature-packed mATX high-end motherboard, especially considering that the X99 Classified should retail at around US $400.
