EVGA reveals its 2nd AMD Ryzen motherboard, the X570 FTW WIFI

EVGA launched its first Ryzen/AM4 motherboard earlier this year with their X570 DARK, focusing on professional overclockers and those who wanted to squeeze every ounce of potential they could out of AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors. Today, EVGA's AM4 offerings are becoming more mainstream, thanks to their new X570 FTW WIFI motherboards. 

Yes, EVGA's $499.99 pricing for this motherboard is far from mainstream, but with this board, EVGA has created something that is much better suited to most high-end Ryzen users.  For starters, this board has four DIMM slots, compared to the X570 DARK's two, two PCIe 4.0 enabled M.2 slots and eight SATA ports. 

Cooling-wise, this motherboard features a finstack VRM heatsink and a fanless chipset heatsink design, differentiating EVGA's design from most older X570 offerings. 

For WIFI, EVGA's X570 FTW WIFI uses Intel's AC200 Wi-Fi 6 controller and Bluetooth 5.2 module for connectivity, and standard Gigabit ethernet. Sadly, EVGA has not splashed out on 2.5GbE or higher-end ethernet standards.

On the board's rear I/O, EVGA has given its X570 FTW WIFI two UGB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports (5Gbps), two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports (10Gbps), and a single USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port (10Gbps). EVGA has also confirmed that their X570 FTW motherboard also supports Resizable BAR.

I love EVGA's design and software features but not for that ludacris price. It's not at all comparable to cheaper Z690 boards feature wise. Plus retailers haven't even gotten a first shipment of the X570 DARK here in Europe yet (checking https://geizhals.eu/ almost daily).Quote

With more AM4 boards coming out this late into 2021 I think it's a good sign the stacked Zen 3 chips are a certain.Quote

The price is about where it needs to be.

Asus make boards for £500+ too. Crosshair Dark Hero is £489. Formula is £529 down from £599. Aorus Extreme is £729.

So tbh given the feature set and materials? it's about right.

I don't even remember the last time EVGA made a cheap board. I do remember, however, that they were absolute garbage. So maybe that is why they aren't bothering this time around. What you get here is a beautiful board stacked with features. IDK how it will fare come review time, but right now yeah it doesn't seem that bad if you are in the market for that sort of board.

EVGA stopped trying to compete with Taiwan et al. They stood no chance. What they've done instead is carve out a niche at the high end.

Hopefully they will give out some review samples.Quote
