I was looking at that on the EVGA site last week. It's a fantastic looking and feature-full board. Way more than I would ever use. And the price... eek.

There are several boards in the same range. The GODLIKE board for example is $700. Definitely an eek, and I'd say that 95%+ of the people that buy this board wont be using it for its intended purpose (XOC).

I suspect it's more of a statement for EVGA to say "look, we are doing AMD motherboards now, give us a shot next-gen". Probably the majority of boards have already been given out, I'm guessing only a few will exist in the retail channel.

I would think most people that wanted onto AM4 have already done so at this point, and wouldn't "upgrade" their motherboard this late into the lifecycle. The rest will hold out for AM5?

Well... I'm still toying with the idea ;) I keep putting a 5900X and motherboard in my cart at whatever site has the current sale, and then taking it out again lol It's the most dithering I have ever done on an upgrade! The chip price increase rumours keeps me going back but I haven't done it yet.

And exactly @Sagath I'd be one of those 95%+ folks if I bought a board like that. It'd be nice if they brought that same layout and look to cheaper motherboards in their line. I really like it.

I used to purchase Evga Boards up until the X79 Classified issues (went with Asus RIVE at that point)....have never looked back at Evga Boards since...they make great GPU's .....but for Mobo I'll stick to Asus, perhaps the "Darks" are better then the way the Classifieds went.....
