EVGA launches X570 Dark Motherboard for AMD Ryzen

Yesterday, EVGA launched the X570 Dark E-ATX motherboard for AMD’s Ryzen CPUs. This marks EVGA’s first AMD motherboard since the Athlon 64 era (yes, it really HAS been that long!). The EVGA website lists the board for $689.99. While this is a high price point, we feel there will be more than a few enthusiasts willing to pay for this rare overclocking beast.  The X570 Dark incorporates unique features such as a rotated socket and DIMM slots as well as  90° connectors for the ATX, EPS, and SATA connectors which helps with cable management. It also features two-way SLI capability (rare on AMD platforms), dual Intel 2.5 Gigabit NICs, and eight fan headers (2x 3A Pump, 2x CPU PWM, & 4x PWM/DC).
