    900$ for a motherboard? They are out of their freaking mind.

    we're paying for the pcie 5.0 and ddr5 design work we are the 1st customers for it and so we pay in full just like the 1st high-end x570 boards were also expensive
    pcie 3.0 10y old ddr4 7y old had already been more than paid

    that said the layout design is crap those 2 x1 slots should be at the bottom and one of those x16 slot was never going to be usable so why add it

    Voltage phase design drives it up too.

    That is Z690, with exception of the additional PCIE x8 slot.

    I have a MSI Z690-A Pro , it has 14+1+1 power design, DDR5 up to 6400mhz and a PCI 5.0 slot just to name a few features.
    I run my 12600k at a stable 5.2 ghz at 1.33v 24/7 (water cooled)

    And all i paid for it was 200 USD.

    You would have to be lobotomized to get that Gigabyte bling bling shait for 900 USD.

    The price IS crazy...at least if I hit my head to a wall and suddenly become crazy I will buy this for that amount of money + 99 USD:
