EVGA has announced a second, cheaper AM4 motherboard called the X570 FTW WIFI for AMD Ryzen users who think the X570 DARK’s feature set might be overkill for their needs. The new motherboard carries a similar aesthetic as its pricier sibling but lacks some of its specialized features such as a 17-phase digital VRM and rotated CPU and memory slots. Still, users can expect all of the usuals such as PCIe 4.0 support and compatibility with premium DDR4 memory.

From EVGA:

The EVGA X570 FTW WIFI is a motherboard built upon the AMD X570 chipset to provide everything you need while giving you the performance you demand. Designed and engineered from scratch with a 15-phase digital VRM design, this is one sleek-looking motherboard jam-packed with the latest features and EVGA GUI BIOS. Paired with an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processor, this board is PCIe Gen4-ready with a data transfer rate of up to 16 GT/s to support the latest graphics cards and M.2 NVMe SSDs, scorching-fast 4600MHz+(OC) memory, HDMI/DisplayPort outputs, lots of USB and SATA 6Gb/s ports, and RGB/ARGB options. The EVGA X570 FTW WIFI gives you the freedom to choose your EVGA motherboard without sacrifice or compromise.

EVGA’s X570 FTW WIFI motherboard is listed for $499.99 on its official web shop, but it’s unclear when it’ll be in stock. Its more premium sibling, the X570 DARK, costs $689.99.

  1. Cost is low, demand is high… it’s hard not to include a WiFi module (that also brings Bluetooth) on any board that isn’t a result of focused penny-pinching.

    Meh,

    I’m still of the opinion that Wifi belongs nowhere near a desktop motherboard.

    Remember when Network cards didn’t belong anywhere near a desktop motherboard?
    Remember when Audio cards didn’t belong anywhere near a desktop motherboard?
    Remember when I/O cards didn’t belong anywhere near a desktop motherboard?

    I don’t remember ever saying or thinking that. All of those were great additions that expanded the capability of the desktop PC.

    Wifi is a HUGE downgrade over wired Ethernet. Nothing that is stationary should ever use it.

    To be fair, this is probably true… again.

    Audio interfaces have come a [I]long[/I] way!

    It has all of the common modern and legacy interfaces though……

    It sure does!

    I use them as a last resort 🙂

  10. Whatever. Doing what every other motherboard manufacturer did 2 years before you isn’t anything to brag about… You really want to impress me? Make an X570 bored for Alder Lake!

  11. Can someone tell me when a 500 dollar motherboard became budget friendly? If I’m dropping 500 stepping up to a dark isn’t a big ask. Still seems overly pricey.

  12. $500 for the “cheaper” motherboard. No thanks unless it’s gold plated.

    I don’t think I have spent more than $300 on a motherboard, EVER. Going back to the 486 days when I started building. Nowadays that number is under $200.

    I think I’d pass even if it were gold plated. I have no need for gold plated components :p
