Seems to be the same LGA at the 12 gen.   Think the raptor lake will be a fit?   I am contemplating cashing out my EVGA bucks on a new MB (690)

    Yes, raptor lake will be socket compatible with z690. Bios will need to be updated at that time by EVGA to accept the new cpus.

    I am wondering if it will even boot and allow a bios update with the raptor lake.  I've been through this once before where I had to borrow a cpu to get the bios update and accept the intended CPU.    I wasn't going to use it until the next gen came about

    There is flashback(or w.e. EVGA calls it) on both motherboards, so a CPU wouldn't need to be installed to flash the bios

    yep, i believe evga uses the bios update port and holding the reset button for a few seconds initiates the flash

    Hopefully EVGA won't take long to release Z790 Dark/Classified models once the RL is available!

    Flashing the BIOS Without a CPU

    ...you’ve purchased this motherboard with a BIOS version prior to official support for your compatible Intel® CPU, you may need to flash the BIOS.


    In order to flash the BIOS without picture, you must follow these steps:
    1. Turn off your Z690 CLASSIFIED motherboard, if on, and turn your power
    supply off by flipping the switch to the “Off” position.
    2. Plug in the included USB flash drive to the USB 2.0 to SPI header, as noted in the component legend on Page 12, component 18, or refer to this image:
    3. Make sure the 24pin power connector from your power supply is plugged in to the motherboard.
    4. When ready, flip your power supply switch to the “On” position and hold down the “BIOS UPDATE” BUTTON, which can be found on the I/O Panel.
    5. Continue holding down the reset key, as the POST LED counts down from 2.
    6. When the flash begins, release the reset key. The POST
    LED will cycle in a clockwise manner during the flash process.

    How are you liking your Z690?  I kinda had to make a purchase to clear out my EVGA bucks and this is what I got.  Coming from a z390 dark which has served me well.    I am in no rush to install it.  I may wait until raptor lake comes out as I see there is probably a 40% increase in speeds.  Well, I think I read that.   Or maybe snag a 12th gen cheap if there's a 4th of july sale.

    there's about 20 more posts i made after that on ^^ thread.
     
    read them and u'll see i feel 10+!!!
     
    best money i ever spent on PC Hardware in 24 years.
     
    every Game i max out everything. the time saved while not messing around endlessly with each individual game's video settings, is priceless in itself. Max it and play.
     
    Take GTA V for example... imagine setting BOTH types Anti-Aliasing set to the highest (couldn't do that before without FPS dropping 40%) and max everything else of course too. GTA V Benchmarks:  https://forums.evga.com/FindPost/3540898. Could have just set one of the two AA's to the highest and left stuff as it was with previous build for better FPS. But instead, just Max out everything, then be done with ever again going into the Game's Video Settings. 
     
    i have benchmarks for at least 10 different games on ^^ thread, everything is maxed out settings.
     
    Best thing of all, is that this build was completed 5 months ago; so it's thoroughly tested and prepped for a video card upgrade.
