Kashtan Thanks.My english is bad i know.I mean support ram memory - possible this memory run on Dark? CMK16GX4M2Z5000C18
SimonOceanKashtan Thanks.My english is bad i know.I mean support ram memory - possible this memory run on Dark? CMK16GX4M2Z5000C18Ahh okay, Well that 5,000 MHz memory kit might work on the Z490 Dark, but from all the information available right now that is not guaranteed. To be 100% sure you would need to wait for the qualified memory kits list that is usually published on the support tab of the motherboard product page. That list is not up yet. Also EVGA's marketing is being cagey about top memory speeds; the Z490 should be a beast at memory overclocking given that it is limiting traces to 2 DIMMS and that the board is using 10 traces! However the marketing so far only says support for memory at MHz 4,600+... whatever the "plus" means is that they are not guaranteeing anything. I think Asus's Apex (which is traditionally one of the best memory overclocking boards in each generation) is boasting MHz 5,000 memory support, but again you might need to check memory qualification lists to be sure. For normal memory kits such lists are not really that important, but when you are pushing memory speeds as hard as you seem to want to, then these lists might be more relevant. Some of the other top tier boards (Godlike etc) are also promising faster memory support which suggests to me that EVGA's marketing us just being cautious to under promise and over deliver. Hope this helps.
Vlada011You talk about PCI-E 4.0 on Intel Z490 Chipset?That depend of Processors. Intel not support PCI-E 4.0 until at least next generation.Motherboards with new chipset will show up next year as always. Samsung as main player or Intel still didn't enter in race with storage devices NVMe Gen 4.0.You can buy now some models like CORSAIR and then when more models show up they will be 30-40% faster instantly in random write/read.
random_mattSo is EVGA committed to EU customers?
Kekke466random_mattSo is EVGA committed to EU customers?I really hope that both the Z490 boards will be available in Europe soon. I have been using EVGA motherboards in all my builds in the past. Is this the end? I really hope not! Times are bad but... I really don't want to look to other manufacturers but I feel like EU-customers are being excluded. With import duties and VAT the price will be so high :(
