If the amount of upcoming Z690 was anything to go by, one could presume that the motherboard makers are backing Intel's upcoming platform to the max, as a leaked list of what should be close to every Z690 that will hit the market, counts a total of 98 boards. The list covers ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, NZXT, Gigabyte and MSI, but not EVGA and some other smaller players.

ASUS is apparently planning no less than 30 different models/SKUs, since some are clearly DDR4/DDR5 SKUs of the same model or SKUs with or without Wi-Fi, but even so, that's a massive launch lineup. Gigabyte isn't far behind with 27, followed by MSI at 24 and ASRock at 14, if we didn't count wrong. There isn't much news in terms of details of each of the boards here though, but it's clear that the high-end SKUs are mostly DDR5, while the mid-range and standard models are mostly using DDR4. The only slight surprise here is that only ASRock has more DDR4 than DDR5 models, with ASUS having exactly half of each, but Gigabyte and MSI are going with a preference for DDR5. ASRock, ASUS and Gigabyte appear to have liquid cooled SKUs, but it's not clear if MSI will offer such a SKU of its Godlike board.
 
That is a well supported list of motherboard SKUs in my personal opinion.

    That is a lot of MBs primed and ready.  I do not see any dual DDR4/DDR5 on the list, but that may appear in individual specs for the MBs.

    How has EVGA's track record of coming out with MOBO's on new chip launch dates been?  I know they are new to the game, just curious if anyone could share insight here?
     
    The little bit of research online suggests around 6 months or so after chip launch (Dark line), but correct me if i'm wrong?
     
    I'd really like to try an EVGA z690, just don't know if i'll be willing to wait that long.  I really like the EVGA bios.

    The Dark boards always take much longer to come out because of all of the testing and changes that are made to the layout.

    The FTW boards tend to come out much closer to launch, but typically follow the more “standard” layouts from the Intel specs.

    I saw this with love, but you better have some patience. i think the dark was like 7 months post launch, the FTW 5 post launch.

    I plan on waiting though, but if you arent pushing the overclocking im not sure the Dark is worth the wait if you wanna stay on the cutting edge.

    I would like to wait for the EVGA board but I would rather go with a MB that's compatible with Corsair iCue since I'm going to be building a full iCue ecosystem around it. 
     
    At this point, I have no idea who is compatible with iCue and by compatible, I mean the MB RBGs being controlled via iCUe with no issue.

    I’m just going to state my opinion here:

    Companies look real dumb when they name a product “Gaming 4/D5” instead of calling it “Gaming 4” for DDR4, and “Gaming 5” for DDR5.

    I just think one really nice board and then a scale back for cheaper would be enough not 10 different boards from each manufacture 

    Ryzen 3900x, 32gb 3200 ddr4, kraken x62, gigabyte x370 k7, aorus master 3080, Evga 850 p2, Samsung 970 evo plus 1tb, Crucial MX300 1 TB, WD Red 1tb Win 10
    Oldie But Good: Cooler Master 942 HAF X, Xeon X5690, Swiftech H220X, EVGA x58 FTW3 ,24gb samsung ecc 1333 , EVGA GTX 780 ftw acx, Corsair ax850, Samsung 840 pro 256, 120gb Corsair Force, 1tb wd Black 64mb, Win 10

    Hope they do not get made ..... previous generations of dual RAM type were ... well, underwhelming
     
     
    List - is a rumor at best ... where did "list" come from ?
