Recommended Posts

wild guessing in between hero and formula so that would be around 550 euros at launch...

Great price too bad for us, Euros, with 45 USD shipping plus import taxes probably

If apex is really $399 that is a an easy choice imo. Just being real.

Agreed, this is what winning looks like.

That $399 is the sort of competition that will have an impact on the other manufacturers.  It may be worth watching a while longer.

Here in Indonesia, Asus Maximus XII Hero (Wifi) is priced US$500 for pre order price. This price is ridiculous and i may stay on 1151 for longer than it should lol.

Z490I Unify has 8 phases with 90A Powerstages, should be enough on that side? It's a promising looking board for sure. My biggest concern is BIOS ready for C14 action? as well as voltages being fully open or not.

I would really enjoy a good memory-clocking board that doesn't break the bank.

That would interest me too. Since Apex won't be directly avaiable at launch this one could be a cheaper option for time beeing.

The Z390 Itx from MSI was pretty good at mem oc.

It seems the Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Elite is acceptable for mem oc. 4800 14-14 without much fuss, not bad at all for a $200 4-dimm board. I have heard someone mention they got 5000+, but I have not seen screenshots of that yet.

would be nice if no soldering needed to run XP

Old es 0000 id in cpuz have much better imcs than the retail es. Maybe wait to see what p1 or qs can do before making any judgement.

Well the board seems to be able to do it, so the limitation is the CPU IMC

Looking forward to retail nrs

Well check the performance as well, some subs on 4 dimmers to hit 4800c14 are horrible, tcwl 18 and stuff like that....

This!

Also loose RTL (i.e. 65 65 14 15 etc ...)

Still think 4 dimm might be interesting for full bank, sure the clocks won''t be there but I think the performance could be nice if tuned correctly.

Apex like always. Dark is pricy and usually EVGA boards have slow bios support to non existant.

On Z390, Apex was cheaper then Dark. Yes, Asus releases more BIOSes than EVGA, but both boards run great (I have both of them), so I don't see the relevance of release timing.

Also, Vince is uploading XOC BIOSes periodically, so support is far from non existent.

Moreover, EVGA warranty is international and covers OC while Asus not on both matters.

Maybe Z490 Dark will be cheaper and available in Europe faster and wider.

Im pretty sure it wont be cheaper than Maximus XII Apex.

I agree with you. We'll just wait and see how expensive it will be :)

Yet, the problem with Z390 was the availability in Europe. Maybe EVGA will fix that from now on.

EVGA has always seemed to focus more on the US market, lots of availability problems in Europe.

I think it will as well, I just haven't seen it yet but hopefully Vince will show us the magic when it's ready.

 

 

Vince hasn't done 2D in years, will have to be someone else like Luumi. PR says the board has XP support tho.
