The Intel Z390 chipset is built for the extreme performance of Intel’s first 8-Core processor for desktop motherboards. EVGA Z390 boards are designed for the purpose of everyday tasks, exceptional performance, hardcore gaming, and, of course, overclocking. Featuring EVGA’s latest GUI BIOS with OC Robot and in-BIOS stress testing, the ability to flash the BIOS without a CPU, and EVGA Nu Audio (Z390 FTW only), these boards offer a little something new for everyone. Although the EVGA Z390 FTW is the first board available, you should always be careful of what’s waiting in the Dark….
The EVGA Z390 Dark sets the standard for motherboards based on the Intel® Z390 chipset. Much like the EVGA X299 Dark, its older brother, the Z390 Dark is designed for ultra-enthusiasts looking to pull every last ounce of performance from the new 9th Gen Intel® 8-Core CPUs. The Z390 Dark features a 17 Phase VRM design, along with two right-angle 8pin High Current connectors to provide maximum power for overclocking. Two SMT DIMMS enable high-frequency and low latency RAM overclocking. The 10-layer PCB is studded with multiple sensors to track a variety of temperatures and voltages across the board, which can be displayed on the dual-LED displays. For its other features, the Z390 Dark contains Creative Audio, two Intel® Gigabit NICs, mini-Display Port, onboard power/reset/CMOS buttons, PCIe disable switches, triple BIOS support, 8 smart fan headers, and more swagger than any motherboard should have a right to wield. If you’ve been holding out for a serious motherboard to upgrade, the time has come. Go on, the Dark is waiting.
9th Gen Intel® Core i3/i5/i7/i9 Coffee Lake-S Processors
Intel® Optane™ Memory Ready
Reinforced PCIe slots (E399) / Reinforced PCIe slots and DIMM slots (E397)
USB to SPI BIOS Flash
Right-Angle Power and Header layout for better cable management
With The EVGA Z390 FTW, high-end gaming is now better than ever without costing an arm and a leg. Featuring 6 SATA ports, USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A and Type C ports, USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, USB 2.0 ports, multiple M.2 sockets, Intel® Optane™, 7.1 Channel Audio with EVGA NU Audio, and an Intel® Gigabit NIC, this board is ready for everything. However, this board wouldn’t be FTW without a highly-efficient Digital VRM connected to an 11 Phase power design, 2-way SLI support, metal-reinforced slots, and EVGA’s New GUI BIOS featuring OC Robot and an in-BIOS stress test. The EVGA Z390 FTW is primed to be the center of everything you do next.
