Following the launch of Intel's new 7th generation Kaby Lake CPUs and the new Intel Z270 chipset, EVGA has unveiled three new motherboards, the EVGA Z270 Classified K, EVGA Z270 FTW K and the EVGA Z270 Stinger.

Unlike other motherboards makers, EVGA decided to keep it simple and has only announced three motherboards based on the new Intel Z270 chipset, which should cover three different market segments.

The top of the line is the E-ATX form-factor Z270 Classified K, which will include a newly-designed 13-phase VRM as well as offer peak performance and overclocking capability. It also comes with M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD support, U.2 NVMe SSD support, support for Intel Optane Memory, Killer E2500 and Intel i219 network adapters, Triple BIOS, on-board buttons and CPU temperature monitor and plenty of other high-end features.

The next in line is the standard ATX form-factor Z270 FTW K, which also comes with pretty much the same storage and overclocking-friendly options as well as Killer E2400 and Intel i219 networking but slightly weaker 11-phase VRM.

The star of the SFF show is the mini-ITX Z270 Stinger, a small motherboard with 6-phase VRM, on-board buttons, pretty much the same storage options as the bigger Z270 FTW K and even an integrated dual-band 802.11ac WiFi and Intel i219 networking.

Unfortunately, EVGA did not reveal any details regarding the price or the availability date but a quick check at EVGA's website puts them up for pre-order at US $299.99 for the Z270 Classified K, US $239.99 for the Z270 FTW K and US $169.99 for the Z270 Stinger.
