I was ready to get interested.  I had read Internet fu instead of data sheets.  So here fresh from Intel's site, a comparison of Z490, Z390 and X299.
 
 
And I weep.  I had much higher hopes for Z4-- series.  I have a shiny, new X299 mATX 2, still looking for a CPU.  I bought it for the quad channel memory and extra lanes.  Specs wise, for what I want right now, the Z490 offers nothing new.  To be totally honest, I do want a new game system.  Z390 stock seems to be rapidly disappearing.  Decisions decisions ...


X299 is still the best thing out there if you need more PCIe, I'm still on X99 due to the lane distro. 
 
If Intel doesn't pull back into place fairly soon, I'm going to cross over to AMD. Intel is stale for way to long. 
16 lanes of PCie 3.0 in 2020 is so... so.... lame. Content creators gotta spend tripple K cash to get anything worth while.. 
So sick of all this shared connectivity, It's like a motherboard is just an expensive USB Hub.
 
In fact I'm about to go back to the 90's of analog music recording, or even stand alone digital, (No PC required) it's getting to be Cliche 
Porta Studio FTW.

I do not see AMD in my future.  My mATX 2 is going to be a test system for me to play with gravitation and particle physics data analysis.  I did that decades ago on a computer that was bigger than my car.  I am retired now and want to see if these new fangled ;) Deep Learning tools could be useful.  If I get enough joy out of this little toy I will build a bigger box to play with and turn the mATX 2 into a game computer.  It should be able to handle my favorites okay fine - Space Engineers, Cities Skylines and what I suspect will become my new favorite soon - the not yet released Kerbal Space Program 2.
SWMBO is a long-time collaborator on the RHIC PHENIX project at Brookhaven and can bury me with petabytes of data to play with.
One step closer - I am picking up a 10920X today.  Microcenter backed off of the ~ $150 premium on these so good for them.  They got two 10920X in on Friday.  One will be mine and their web site at my local Marietta store says it still has one at the ~$700, regular price.  In-store only.  So if you are in the Atlanta area and have been looking, you might luck out today.

I really wish you offered some mITX form factors since EVGA is always my first choice for new hardware. I haven't built an ATX PC in over a decade; all that wasted space, inside AND out. :-(

They do.  There are H370 Stingers out there to be found.  I know they exist because I held a new one a few months ago.

Agreed, I hope there is a z490 mitx or matx. I don't want the B or H series motherboard, I only dabble in overclocking but I don't want to give that up. If they do sell a Z490 micro, please include a IO shield/Cover for the internal side, and 2 m.2 slots for SSD's.

lol
once again EVGA leaving us in the DARK
how about giving us a price on this so we know how much we have to spend
how about giving us more specs , the specs you have out does not tell a whole lot
how about letting us the memory support ,,, QVL ,,, so we can get the memory we need
 
come on EVGA get on the ball ,,, leaving us hanging is going to cost you , NOT ME , plenty of other mobo out their with all the above info avail

Anyone else notice the Dark is a z490 ATX board with just 2 dimm slots? Are they saying people should use 2 x 8gb stick and stay at a max of 16gb or spend more for 16gb and 32gb sticks? And if they want to put 2 dimms why not make it micro or mini-itx? seems like a waste to only have 2 dimms on an atx board. 




cant wait to get this. im buying the second it becomes available.
 
it has two dimm slots and the rotated orientation to aid in the best and fastest memory overclocks possible. it supports up to 64gb. 2x32gb sticks.
i got a 64gb (2x32gb) teamgroup kit last week for 235$. memory is super cheap right now.
this is an overclocking board first and foremost. that is its job, that is its purpose. 
if you look at some of the competitions boards they also have 2dimm ATX offerings specifically for overclocking memory. and historically since ITX boards are so size limited they can only handle 2dimm at most, they end up being great for memory overclocking. 
 
saw someone asking about the NU audio onboard. its not the same as the dedicated NU sound cards. i think onboard NU audio on my x299dark and z390dark both sounded FANTASTIC. this wont be any different. i not a big sound guy, but i felt it sounded better than the onboard audio on flagship ROG boards ive owned. to each their own tho.
glad to see that EVGA kept an onboard U.2 slot. thats fantastic, there are some amazing deals on 2nd hand enterprise drives right now and i definitely recommend checking out U.2. ive gotten a few 4tb u.2 ssds for less than 400$ with 100% drive life. 
 
 
anyways if anyone wants to save a few bucks when these come out use ASSOCIATE CODE EMSB4K6IEQOIA46 to save at checkout from EVGAs website. 
 
THANK YOU to everyone who does and ever has used my code! you guys ROCK!

I know it has 2 dim slots and why
qvl list would be nice , I am assuming its 288 pin ,, they don't specify
yes I know ddr4
which is best for the dark or ftw , G skill ,,,, corsair  ,,, crucial , the list goes on ,,, which modules been tested
 
I think asking for a QVL was and is a must ,, we get mem modules now and they r not on qvl , evga will tell us ,,,,, go spend more money and get modules on the qvl ,,,

Can we pleeeeeaaaase get a water-cooling setup option a la SR3 Dark (i.e. chipset/VRM) for Z490 Dark.  Would be a great add-on option like the GPU waterblocks; with the extra power phases this board has and the big heat that will be coming off of it, water cooling would seem like a natural fit.  Also can you make the CLC CPU cooler available in a non-AIO form to plug in to a water cooling setup with the EVGA light fx/swag.

The QVL will come when the launch is official. The vulgar language will cause trouble right now. Refrain from posting vulgar language.

When are these motherboards going for pre-order? Looks like many others are available starting today.

Anandtech has an article stating that the z490 Dark is 900+ dollars. Please tell me that this is incorrect!

That's not true. I read that article and the price links to a 3rd party seller for a Z390 board, not Z490.

$900  LOL  right... I mean if they wanted it to be a small run and niche board then yes I could see that but I don't think they would market it like they have if they were going to run such a small run.
 
Not sure many people would consider it if it was over $499

i wonder in what price bracket z490 ftw would eventually fit.
I have a strong bias towards black or black+white hardware, in theory it should be somewhere between 220 and 300 compared to other manufacturers lineups in terms of features.
Really looks great but would be a tough buy if it ends up being more expensive than other boards with beefier hardware.

to moderator **** is not vulgar language lol,,,
qvl will come on official launch , another joke , evga doesn't sell memory modules we have to get them through another vender , which can be ordered now if we KNEW what was good to go or not good to go ,,,, and I see the z490 are Intel optane approved , have not found any where that they are intel XMP approved would have to think that they would be ,but again the lack of info ,
Just KEEP US Hanging , I for one don't like the little stunts evga has been pulling on their marketing , almost temped to go spend 800 on a Asus or Gigabyte Mobo , although Asus has gone down hill in the past 7 yrs as well
What ever happen to the days that company bent over backwards to get new consumers and or treat current consumer with respect answer question not toy around with the consumers

Yes, it is.  Your purpose here seems to be to spread some. Likewise on other forums, I see.
Why you were not banned before is a mystery to me.  No company should, as you say, bend over backwards to retain customers who use their forums to pitch hissy fits and call them dishonest.
I for one have had nothing but great service from EVGA going back to AGP days.  What you are asking of them, nay demanding, would not be reasonable even if asked nicely.

I think Dark will be $500-600 since current one is $500.  The FTW is a nice board too though, I think a 10900K or 10700K would be a killer upgrade from your 2600K.

thanks for the email and pm , mr moderator scarlet ,
 
sorry u got your feelings hurt ,,, or is it because I said something true , that if we don't have memory modules that are in your qvl , that u would tell us we cant help you (their no vulgar lol) until u get mem modules that are on the qvl
 
had I known saying that would upset any one I would not of said it , now lets stop wasting time on a petty thing such as saying a swear word (and in my opinion that word is not really swearing, but u think it is so I will leave it at that)  and get to the important stuff ,, such as giving info that is needed and required to build a proper system

Hopefully the pricing is competitively lower, maybe these other mobo prices will go down soon too lol get some reasonable prices. Unless its a pandemic price inflation t.t
Would be nice to see what these new cpus can do lol my trusty 2600k still kickin quick almost a decade later.

had I known saying that would upset any one I would not of said it , now lets stop wasting time on a petty thing such as saying a swear word (and in my opinion that word is not really swearing, but u think it is so I will leave it at that)  and get to the important stuff ,, such as giving info that is needed and required to build a proper system
 
 


Not sure how you attempt to twist QVL into justification for disobeying rules, but you do you however you feel fit. Just don’t waste my time with having to warn you about language, and say whatever makes your heart happy.

I need this feature explained 
 
Realtek 7.1 Channel HD Audio + EVGA NU Audio
 
I own a EVGA NU Audio. 
is this on the Motherboard?
or works with the EVGA NU Audio Card?

It's a gimmick. It's NOT anywhere close to the same as a standalone NU Audio card. It's just onboard realtek audio with a couple extra capacitors or something. Total marketing gimmick.



Is it realtek audio chip with NU Audio software?
 
Intel Z490 is garbage.
No PCIE 4.0 on current CPU's for it
Same amount of PCIE lanes as previous generation
Same old 14nm++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Only supports 2 M.2 slots
 
Maybe Z590 or Z690 Intel will give us a reason to upgrade.

No really sure why this is a debate, it can still be a great upgrade for some.
you will be waiting a long time... Intel claims the z490 will be around a bit and with a BIOS update enable PCI 4 for next gen CPUs.
 
Simply if you don't like the offerings, don't upgrade....or go get on AMDs wagon

He is on AMD’s wagon. Doesn’t change the interest of those that still watch the clock hoping that intel didn’t forget to set their alarm.

Is intel saying that a bios update will enable PCIe4.0? Or is that 3rd party saying it and everyone taking it as intel said so? From what I have seen so far, it’s only been 3rd party saying it, because the chipset doesn’t advertise 4.0 ready, and intel definitely loves putting out things like that to garner interest in their fans to pull them on board for an upgrade.

Currently, this is a minor incremental upgrade for more cores and a little speed bump, but this CPU launch isn’t as special as it could have been.

lol ,,,
I am not the one who twisted any thing , you did over a single little word,  I made a comet and it must be true because you seem to be getting upset over it , bottom line is EVGA is not giving or releasing info that is needed to build a proper system and their is no reason for that or for you to be singling me out for a petty word , back off , period
very sad
