EVGA is a well-known company specializing in NVIDIA video cards and consumer motherboards. Over the years, EVGA has delivered some of the most-anticipated motherboards, and they have recently stepped up their game in bringing consumer motherboards to market. EVGA is prepared to launch an X99 line-up with three models: the X99 Classified, X99 FTW, and X99 Micro.
EVGA has developed a fairly large fan base thanks to great customer service and overall reliability. To meet the needs of their ever-expanding fan base, EVGA is aiming to deliver products of the highest quality matched with the latest features at an affordable price. Personally, I am excited to see how this little Micro-ATX board performs.
The specifications from EVGA's website are a little vague; however, the board does carry many of the features I am interested in, like M.2 and a ton of backpanel USB ports. EVGA decided not to add many third party ICs to expand SATA and USB, which is a good thing in my opinion, especially on a Micro-ATX board where things can get tight. All of the connectivity comes from Intel controllers, with the exception of the audio, which uses a Realtek codec that works with the integrated Intel audio.
At just $245 (on Amazon.com), the X99 Micro is extremely competitive in price, especially since it's one of only a handful of Micro-ATX X99 motherboards available.
