    I think it's EVGATX, probably similar in size to current Z490/Z590 boards.

    Are the PCI-E x16 slots metal or plastic on the Classified? It's hard to tell with those pics.

    I don't think the Classy is a KPE.  It's probably either equivalent to an FTW or possibly a tier above.  Classy appears more traditional, non-rotated sockets and 4 DIMMS.  Not quite as geared toward high end OC as the KPE.

    Shops in the UK say most of their LGA 1700 socket motherboards are expected to be in stock for November 4th. Maybe EVGA will be similar with their release dates

    Wow I sure hope they release an ATX sized board. I’d really prefer not to have to get another case.

    Metal, but that could be subject to change on the final board.

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


    A. 19-phase VRM on the classified, compared to 21-phase VRM on the dark
     
    B.128GB of ram supported on the classified (32GBx4 I'm guessing, but likely only 64GB of Ram (32x2) supported on the dark as it's focused on speed over Ram size ( that spec isn't listed, but it's consistent with the differences between older FTW and dark motherboards)
     
    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)
     
    D. the right angle socket and memory can be seen as well, like in the z590
     
    given there isn't a full list of specs yet, you may be able to venture a few more guesses about specs and differences by comparing the z590 FTW and Z590 dark, I'd say a fair chance of the differences between those two are also there in the z690 line, though exactly what differences might be hard to tell for sure, until full specs are released.
     
     
    As for pricing, I'm guessing at least the same as the prices for the z590 boards, of $430 and $600, or higher (if the classified is like it was before in regards to GPUs, a step higher than FTW, I could guess a bigger price difference compared to the ftw version of the z590, than say the dark boards, though it may just be a change in branding)
     
    I could see the names going to be Classified and Dark for the top motherboards, and FTW and kingpin for the top GPUs, though it could be more complex with naming crossover, and given that kingpin needs kingpins approval, it might not be so simple.

    It's a nice looking board. Layout looks a lot like the Z590 which also is a nice board.

    It might be safe to assume that they are on a cargo ship waiting to be offloaded.
