Leaks Reveal Asus ROG Strix Z690-I WiFi Gaming Motherboard With Stacked Board Design

In Word: As we get closer to the Intel Alder Lake reveal, more and more leaks are ruining the surprises Team Blue and motherboard makers have in store. One of Asus’ upcoming Z690 small form factor PC motherboards has been leaked in all its glory, and two separate leaks have revealed EU prices for various Asus and Asrock motherboards. Needless to say, they won’t be cheap, but there will be plenty of options for people who still want to upgrade but aren’t willing to break the bank in the process.

Asus’ upcoming Z690 motherboards were first seen at a Canadian retailer earlier this month, which provided some clues as to what we can expect in terms of pricing. The cheapest models will be priced around $ 220- $ 240 and the premium variants with more robust power phase designs will cost over $ 600, while the price difference between DDR4 and DDR5 compatibility will be around $ 10.

Thanks to the serial Twitter filter @momomo_us like @ julienjimenez11We now also have some clues on the EU price for these LGA 1700 motherboards. If these new leaks are of any use, it looks like European gamers will have to pay a bit more than North American ones. The most expensive listing is the ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial, which will cost a whopping € 1,969.83 ($ 2,283) with all taxes included.

Of particular interest, however, is a motherboard that has filtered out in all its glory for Videocardz: the Asus ROG Strix Z690-I Mini-ITX. This board has three daughter boards stacked right where the M.2 slot would normally be.

Two of these are presumably for M.2 NVMe SSDs and one is for the RGB and audio chipset and fan headers. Other details are difficult to distinguish from the leaked images, but after squinting one may notice two front panel headers for USB 3.0 and USB-C.

Intel will reveal the first batch of Alder lake CPU in the coming weeks, so we won’t have to wait long to see the full list of LGA 1700 motherboards.
