The Z97-based motherboards will available under EVGA’s Classified, FTW and Stinger lines.
Motherboards based on Intel’s upcoming Z97 platform have been spotted online over the last few days, through both leaks and official announcements. Late last week, EVGA added its name into the mix by announcing three new boards for the platform under its well-known enthusiast lines.
EVGA’s boards are available under three lines targeted at the different needs of users.
Its Z97 Classified board comes in the EATX form factor, and features SLI support, mSATA and overclocking software built into the BIOS. This board will be the priciest of the lot, retailing at $379.99.
The board under the FTW line has a similar suite of overclocking software, supports two-way SLI, and also comes with an M.2 socket instead of an mSATA slot. This board will come in at $199.99
Finally, for users looking to build a small form factor system EVGA also has a board under its Stinger line. 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
These boards will begin shipping next month after the Z97 platform officially launches.
