EVGA’s motherboards have traditionally been restricted to those in the Intel camp, but that appears to finally be changing. The popular manufacturer shared a teaser today suggesting that it is working on an AMD motherboard bearing the DARK branding. While the teaser neglected to clarify on the chipset, EVGA’s DARK products are traditionally built for the highest performance and overclocking potential, so it should be safe to assume that it’s an X570 motherboard. AMD fans are already wondering whether EVGA is also considering producing Radeon graphics cards in the future.

The AM4 socket launched back in 2016 so EVGA is a little late to the party. Three generations of Zen processors have passed through the AM4 socket, and it’s nearing the end of its lifecycle. The Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) series are probably the last processors that will reside on the AM4 socket. AMD did announce a new breed of Zen 3 chips with 3D V-Cache at Computex 2021, but the chipmaker didn’t confirm if they were for AM4.
