Renowned overclocker Vince Lucido shared another photo of AMD’s upcoming launch X570 Dark motherboard on his Facebook page, Indicating that the new board is a “monster AMD OC”, let us hang in the air to learn more details. Of course, as a Dark motherboard, it is not surprising that this new AMD EVGA motherboard will bring some serious overclocking capabilities to enthusiasts.
EVGA teased its X570 Dark motherboard a few months ago, it will beHis company’s first AMD motherboard for many years. Unfortunately, we do not yet have all the details about the board of directors. However, we can see from the name and picture of the motherboard that it will be a “monster” overclocker for Zen 2 and Zen 3 chips, especially RAM overclocking.
Thanks to Kingpin, we have obtained the first full front view of the new motherboard, which provides us with many details that need to be decompressed. Like the product of the same name, X570 Dark will have an all-black aesthetic, with a black PCB, chipset, M.2 heat sink and a black shield on the rear I/O, without RGB lighting at all. This is very common in dark boards, which prefer functionality over additional unnecessary lighting.
Next to the rear I/O, we can see a really huge silver radiator, covered with a power supply system that might be ridiculous. The interesting thing about this radiator is its silver accent, which means it is aluminum finish. The Intel version of the Dark motherboard uses a copper radiator to cool the power transmission system, which makes us wonder whether EVGA chooses aluminum to meet the aesthetic choice, or simply because the power consumption of the Ryzen chip is lower than that of the Intel chip, especially Rocket Lake.
At the top, we can see two DDR4 DIMM slots, which is a very common configuration for overclocking dedicated boards. The change from four DIMM configuration to two DIMMs provides enhanced overclocking support for the motherboard by allowing shorter traces.
On the right, we can see two Q code monitors for debugging errors and a power and reset button at the top. Next to it are the 24-pin ATX connector and two 8-pin EPS connectors, both of which are tilted to the right for better cable management. At the bottom, we see eight SATA connectors and two 4-pin PWM/DC fan connectors.
The rear I/O looks full of connectivity, with six USB ports, dual Ethernet network cards, and six rear audio ports. Coupled with dual WiFi antennas, WiFi 6 is probably supported.
Overall, EVGA seems to use its Z590 Dark motherboard as the blueprint for the X570 Dark, because they all look the same except for the silver radiator. We hope that after EVGA’s first flagship AMD motherboard is finally released, we will see some new world records broken.
