CES 2019 - EVGA took one of its new Z390 Dark motherboards to the Consumer Electronics Show and had it in their suite showing it off in all of its enthusiast glory. We're talking E-ATX form favor, crazy 17-phase VRM on a 10-layer PCB, and so much more.


This is the everything-including-the-kitchen sink motherboard from EVGA in its Z390 Dark board, which as we said before comes with 17-phase VRM on a 10-layer PCB, but an EVGA-embedded wireless solution, 3 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, and more. We have the 24-pin ATX and 2 x 8-pin power connectors with right-angle connectors so there is not a huge amount of cables coming vertically off of the motherboard. This is especially helpful for people changing out hardware like CPUs, RAM, and GPUs all the tiem as it means the huge 24-pin ATX power cable is not in the way, and neither are the 8-pin power connectors going into the motherboard.

EVGA's new Z390 Dark motherboard has 4 x DIMMs that support up to 32GB of DDR4-4600+, dual 1GbE network ports, Creative Sound Core3D audio, 2-way SLI support, M.2 SSD ports, SATA6 ports, and plenty of USB connectivity to boot.

EVGA is selling the Z390 Dark motherboard for $499 right now.
