The wait for Intel Z97 motherboards is over it appears. Newegg has seven ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI motherboards listed and in-stock for purchase. The boards were rumored to be launching May 11th, but that no longer appears to be the case since you can purchase one right now. We expect dozens of more boards to be added in the days ahead as there are over one hundred boards coming to market for H97 and Z97. The boards that are listed this very second on Newegg are the following:
It also appears that Newegg is not price gouging as the prices on ASUS’ boards are exactly what we were given earlier this week by ASUS as the upcoming MSRP!
