EVGA Z77 FTW flagship LGA 1155 motherboard announced

Written by Jon Worrel

Plenty of Ivy Bridge overclocking headroom

As many Intel hardware enthusiasts are well aware of, yesterday and today mark the company's official 24-hour debut of its flagship Z77 mainstream chipset based on Socket LGA 1155. Of course, the reason why the launch spans two days is because it fell on Easter Sunday, a day which many businesses around the world were closed and therefore unable to get their greedy capitalist hands around prospective dollars surrounding new Z77-based motherboard products.

Nevertheless, EVGA in Orange County, Southern California has just announced its first motherboard powered by the Z77 chipset, dubbed the EVGA Z77 FTW (151-IB-E699-KR). This is the company's flagship Z77 board, denoted by its "For The Win" branding, and features support for both second-gen 32nm Sandy Bridge and third-gen 22nm Ivy Bridge mainstream chips based on Socket LGA 1155.

In particular, the EVGA Z77 FTW supports up to 32GB of DDR3 2133MHz+ memory on four slots, includes five PCI-Express x16 / x8 slots (supporting Nvidia 2-way, 3-way, 4-way SLI plus PhysX or CrossFireX), one PCI-Express x1 slot, four SATA III 6Gbps ports, four SATA II 3Gbps ports, six USB 3.0 ports (four from Intel Z77 PCH, two from ASMedia ASM1042), two E-SATA ports and two Marvell Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The board is currently available for pre-order directly from EVGA's site for $329.99, and we definitely expect those pre-orders to sell out as quickly as possible considering the massive demand for this new flagship LGA 1155 chipset.
