whats the difference between the classified and the dark board ? as both are kingpin editions?


[...]
 
C. from looking a the board, it seems that the Classified has the x4 PCIe slot at the bottom while the Dark doesn't (likely to focus on speed over some features again)
 
[...]

The DARK K|NGP|N will also have an x4 PCIe slot at the bottom.

Per the page they have up:
"The EVGA Z690 CLASSIFIED is revealed as the latest addition to EVGA’s most-respected line of motherboards. Although few details are known, this motherboard is rumored to fully support the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ Series Processors and take full advantage of PCIe Gen5 and PCIe Gen4 M.2 NVMe SSDs."

I can’t wait until I can grab one of these and a 12900k.
I am still rocking my x58 classified mobo and i7-975, just a tad overdue for an upgrade!

Sweat.
 
Both are E-ATX, right?
 
Some FTW model coming later or the Classified replace it?


I got a little freaked out by this.   I started reading up on the size of E-ATX which is like 13 inches deep, but these boards look to only stick out about an inch from the screws.

Hmmm... Australian's haven't seen an EVGA board since the Z390 FTW hit our shores. No problem with GPU's but alas, no motherboards.

Plus it looks like all the DDR5 sticks I've seen were 16gb each. You could absolutely daily the KP. I wonder if there gonna do KP, classified, FTW3, and XC3 for the 3090ti

Man, the Z590 FTW, and Dark just came out a few months ago and now the Z690 is almost here....I really wish Intel would have kept the same socket from the 11th Gen....Upgraded my entire system, which is amazing, don't get me wrong, but Intel finally comes out with a much better CPU which requires a new Mobo, CPU and DDR5 Ram....
 
Im really curious as to how long the wait will be to even get your hands on a Z690 board, and CPU....With the shortages, the prices will be even more ridiculous im sure... 
 
On a side note, I really hope EVGA doesn't forgot the Z590 owners, and continues to release Bios updates if needed.... Wondering if these new boards have the same LED's that fail on the Z590 boards??

EVGA Z-590 FTW, EVGA RTX 3080ti FTW3 Ultra  Core i9 11900K, 32GB G.SKILL Ripjaw 3200 OC to 3466MHz  15-19-19-36, EVGA DG-86 Case, EVGA SuperNOVA 850G3 ,Corsair 420mm H170i Elite LCD AIO, 1TB WD SN850 NVME, 1TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD, 1.5TB WD Black HDD, 1TB WD Black HDD, Logitech Z5500 5.1 THX, Logitech G910 Keyboard, Logitech G502 Mouse, Acer X34P G-SYNC 3440X1440 Curved Display @ 120Hz, Windows 10 Pro

Z390, Z490 and Z590 Dark boards have only had two DIMMs, so that's not the case.  
 
The 2 DIMMs are for better overclocking on the RAM.

I would love to get the newest EVGA motherboard but I'll wait till I can buy an EVGA 3080TI FTW or XC at MRSP. That will probably not be until Raptor Lake comes out!

Hi all,
 
Maybe a silly question...
 
In regards of the PCI-E x16 slots do they both run the FULL bandwith on both these EVGA Z690 MB's? Reason for asking is i might watercool the cpu and gpu however in my current EVGA MB i had to use angled fittings (and i am not a fan of angled rotary fittings) in order to use tubing from cpu to gpu the distance is to short to allow me to use regular straight fittings. Is the second pci x16 running at x8 or full x16? (only using ONE GPU so NO SLI) If so i can use the second pci slot to use the gpu for watercooling.
 
EDIT gosh i saved money for the Alder lake cpu and all the things that comes with it incl MB, PSU, M2 ssd but the GPU market is so so bad with the current prices should i wait for the upcomming rtx 4000 series or still get a rtx 3000 IF they get to normal msrp prices will that happen within a couple of months or is this to much wishfull thinking?

At least on the Z590 Dark the top slot is X16 and the bottom is X8, and both would be X8 in SLI.  Would assume the Z690 would be the same.

Wait for the 4000 series the new gpus are going to have a new power connector. And will more and likely need a new style power supply as well. So basically with 12 gen and ddr5 got to build from scratch. Only can re use ssd/storage, case and ram if your fine with dd4
