I see a lot of other companies who make AMD stuff as well as Intel but EVGA doesn't seem to. I was wondering if there was a reason for it? I come to EVGA for my motherboards because they are the best looking ones on the market imo. This is honestly the only reason I haven't gone AMD for my CPU because I can't find a motherboard that looks good from an AMD standpoint.

    EVGA has been producing Intel based motherboards for a while. It is difficult to say what EVGA will do as they have surprised me several times through the years.
     
    The motivating factor behind any company is to make a profit. AMD Ryzen has only been out a short time and not enough time in my personal opinion for EVGA to start investing money in a competing motherboard platform. Other companies like ASUS have been producing AMD motherboards for a while so for them it wasn't a difficult choice.

    Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    I've always been an Intel guy but a Ryzen EVGA board has my interest.

    Yeah, me as well. I was wondering why they haven't dabbled in AMD boards yet but rjohnson said money possibly. I feel with Ryzen 5 and 7 they might want to start making some AMD stuff though. I would make a ryzen 5 setup for some friends and possibly myself; Just need a nice looking board with all the stuff I want on it. Haven't found that yet though.

    Yes, hop in a time machine and go back 12 years. Back then it used an Nvidia chipset. Intel locked third parties out of interfacing their CPUs with third party chipset and killed all future Nvidia chipset development. Thanks Intel.

    These sort of questions people never give context as to why. That history is why.

    It won't happen. This question has been asked at least a 25 times over the last 8 years. EVGA will remain Intel only for the foreseeable future.

    Alright then, if yall don't think they are going to make an AMD board. Think they're going to come out with X299 stuff when it comes out?

    EVGA is barely in the motherboard market as it is, i don't think they will release any AMD Motherboards.
     
    If you want a motherboard with the latest features/innovations, you look towards ASUS, ASRock, GIGABYTE and MSI motherboards. Just look at past motherboard released by companies, compare the features and innovation on them. You can see for yourself which companies are lagging behind.

    He only seems interested in the "Look"  of the board , not any of those features/innovations you speak of ... why would you want any of those if it don't look cool

    I doubt they will,but I'd rather see them go for more stuff for or around their gpus, they've done some stuff I really like like the elite colors they're doing and the power connector to put the power in the back of the card. #5

    I doubt they would.
    I have always gone Intel too many issues with AMD back in the day and games seem more compatible with intel even now a days.

    To sum up why it doesn't make sense if we look at the past 19 years that EVGA has been around and at the AMD chips vs. Intel chips during that time frame how many people are going to say that it would be better to have an AMD then an Intel? Seems like only 10% of those product years would it have benefited EVGA to make a product.
     
    Of course things change nobody in the 70's would have thought that Apple would become a bigger company then IBM but I don't think history is going to let that happen again and Intel will invest and crush AMD. It would be great if that didn't happen and we see a long term war between AMD and Intel but until that time Intel is just the safer bet for a company.

    IBM subsequently sold their personal PC business to a company called Legend, which evolved into the present-day Lenovo brand. 
     
    I just upgraded my third computer with a Ryzen 7 2700X attached to an MSI B450M Mortar motherboard. Setup was a breeze, and with 8 cores and 16 threads, it really augments my EVGA 2070 to fold around 1.1 to 1.3 million points a day. Sweeeeeet!

    Maybe if/when Nvidia makes AMD motherboard chipsets again, maybe they will.
    Not going to hold my breath.

    Well, Athlon XP and 64 were THE SH*T back in the day but EVGA wouldn't probably be able to break through with companies like ABIT or DFI being at their peak at the time...DFI Lanparty NF4 DR-Expert anyone? Had one couple of months ago, to me that's like the old school equivalent of modern EVGA DARK boards.
    Wonder if DFI still holds the Lanparty brand name? EVGA Lanparty X570 would've been the bomb.
     
    The aren't many pieces of hardware that make my heart rate increase but if I had to mention a few, definitely the EVGA Classified series and DFI Lanparty...hope to get my hands on a T3EH8 some day

    With AMD releasing the 3000 Zen 2 CPU's at Computex next week, I would love a response from EVGA on if they will produce a AMD motherboard.

    I want to stay with EVGA, but if Intel can't get there [crap] together with their 10nm chips and AMD 7nm chips performance is VERY impressive I will switch.
     
    This is the bomb shell for me against Intel.

    Why stay with Intel, really? Yeah you "may" get better gaming performance, but are you really?  I'll spend near half as much on an AMD chip and get more performance?  Yes, that's what it looks like.

    Re: Will EVGA ever make an AMD motherboard? 2019/05/23 14:24:12 (permalink)
    Well, you ought to ask yourselves first why EVGA should to this.
     
    Designing a mainboard/motherboard is no small feat, it is not like designing a graphics card, where you can go with the reference design, tweak a few parameters, furnish it with a better cooler and you are good to go.
     
    Have you thought about designing a mainboard yourself? Seriously...
    What makes you think that EVGA should design one? Do you miss any features that only EVGA could add? Do current EVGA mainboards stand out?
     
    I have been an AMD fanATIc*) to the point that I have sworn that no Intel product can ever cross the threshold of my house. (Although I have made an exception in this SSD era, as only Intel offers Optane products; I use only Optane SSDs.) 21 years ago I applied for AMD technical documentation, I made a few errors during making the order during filling in the application, so I filled it out 4 times... and in the end I received 4 complete sets of AMD technical documentation. I read it all during the next summer vacation, I cut out the AMD logo and stuck it on the top bat of my glasses and I was wearing it everywhere and people were greeting me all the time, asking me about it, soliciting technical advice, etc.  I was like a sign holder for AMD without AMD's knowledge, and I was very proud of it. I handed out the remaining sets to the most zealous AMD fanatics. I have never used an Intel processor since the 80286 in the 1980s, I used Cyrix processors a lot in the 1990s.
     
    I currently use a Microstar MSI X470 Gaming Pro, a Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 revision 3.1, an Asus M2N32 WS Professional, partly an ASRock ALiveDual-eSATA2 and an ASRock 939Dual-VSTA; I also have an ASRock 990FX Extreme4 and a Gigabyte K8NS Ultra-939 which I no longer use.
     
    I believe that every one of these is somehow special. And, as you can see, I have been served by all the top companies.
     
    As a newcomer, EVGA would have to break through this establishment and in order to succeed, it would have to design a better workstation mainboard/motherboard than Asustek Computer makes, or a more exquisite mainboard/motherboard than ASRock makes, or a mainboard/motherboard with more features than Gigabyte Technology makes, or a mainboard/motherboard with better features and price than Microstar International.
    The characterization is very simplified, probably grossly out of date and largely based on my mainboards, but I hope that you get the point that it ought to be quite noteworthy and exceptional in some regard, so that it attracts a fair amount of attention overall and creates a lot of interest among the enthusiasts, hardware evangelists and the like.
    And that is no small feat, indeed.
     
    Thus, you ought to ask yourselves what would be better for EVGA, whether to venture into this business and shift a significant portion of their resources to it, or whether to devote their resources to refining their products in their current product categories.
     
    *) Although I eventually switched to Nvidia's Maxwell from the Radeon HD 6970 after years of non-innovation on AMD's part and eventually became more addicted to CUDA.

    V!P3R
    With AMD releasing the 3000 Zen 2 CPU's at Computex next week, I would love a response from EVGA on if they will produce a AMD motherboard.

    I want to stay with EVGA, but if Intel can't get there [crap] together with their 10nm chips and AMD 7nm chips performance is VERY impressive I will switch.
     
    This is the bomb shell for me against Intel.

    Why stay with Intel, really? Yeah you "may" get better gaming performance, but are you really?  I'll spend near half as much on an AMD chip and get more performance?  Yes, that's what it looks like.




    Because Intel Still outperforms AMD ... even with the bigger Hit to past performance ... with the patches
     
    I am ready for Intel to get back to more than 16 PCIe lanes ....except those outrageously expensive X299 CPUs ---> I'm still X99 based Need those PCIe lanes
     
    Intel like Microsoft have a target on there Back ... Not because they have a Bad Product ... but Because they Have the Lions share of their Market
     
    To Answer your Question:  (My Opinion)
    EVGA is performance based hardware company, with their Business Model more to high-end performance. 

    Why would EVGA invest their limited resources on the Second place (Market Share if Not Performance) CPU Mfg ?
     
    Do you go to the Chevy Dealer & ask When are you going to make Fords ?

    Per thread - Intel still commands a lead in computation. Particularly comparing 9th gen core i9 to AMD Gen 2 threadripper.

    The price difference, however, is increasingly difficult to justify.

    Setting aside ZombieLoad for a moment as you have tons more researchers pounding Intel chips for flaws - well past the scrutiny that AMD currently gets... for obvious reasons. AMD chips simply aren’t put through the woodshed the degree Intel chips are.

    I say this as I just bought the 9940x for $1400.

    If EVGA made a AMD board I may have made a different choice.

    I used to mine. Now I compute.

    Maybe if/when Nvidia makes AMD motherboard chipsets again, maybe they will.
    Not going to hold my breath.


     
    Nvidia doesn't need to just like they don't make intel based chipsets. Nvidia pulled their head out of their rear several years ago and allowed SLI on any chipset. That was the primary reason that they made them all those years ago if I remember correctly it didnt really add anything other than knowing that you could run SLI on an amd board.
     
     
    I will admit I am slightly dissapointed to see EVGA is making an SR-3 board and instead of making it for the most capable chips and dual chips at that they stuck with intel. A dual EPYC 64 core board with 128 pcie lanes would be insane. Guess we all have to stick with supermicro for truly revolutionary boards.

    Ryzen 9 3900x would be faster and cheaper, a quite a bit faster IPC. I do wish EVGA made a board though.
