Motherboards in general are expensive, and Intels has always been higher due to higher licensing cost for the chipset. But even looking at Z490/590 boards, normally they'd be getting clearanced out, but they are still $2-300.

The biggest pet peeve on these new boards for me, is the cheapening out on alot of components. For example most Z690 boards are coming with ALC 897 audio chips vs 4080 which just came out last gen, or before even 1200/1220. They are skimming down on these boards, and still charging a premium. It's all a cash grab. Do you know how old ALC 897 chips are ???

apparently many z690 boards are using really cheap cpu sockets as well.

so under the heat load they and the boards are warping?

$200+ motherboards with Realtek network adapters and sloppy bioses. Even the box felt cheap.

The TUF Z690-Plus gaming is a dumb board. Why does a gaming motherboard have PCI-e slots right below the 16X PEG slot.

Look up the Tech Yes City review of the board, they crucify the audio on it. Very poor implementation.

I just built a Z690 / 12600k, but I went with the Gigabyte Gaming X DDR4. It has pretty decent VRMs (60 amp, but lower quality), but it has the ALC 1220 chip for audio, and pretty good m.2 thermal sinks.

I was bouncing between it and the MSI A-Pro, but it uses the ALC 897 chip, and I refuse to spend $200 on a motherboard with an audio chip from a decade ago.

So far, the Gigabyte works fine, had to do an immediate bios update to detect the m.2. Gigabyte seems to be on the Bios's pretty quick surprisingly. There are already 6 different revisions.

High end motherboards used to be $200~$300 just 5 years ago.

Since the 9900's came out those prices have been going higher and higher with less on the boards. I feel for anyone today looking to get an Asus Maximus Formula board. They are $800~$900. Heros are $600 FFS!

Asus has a freaking $2,000.00 motherboard. ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial.

See I didn't even notice the audio quality. That sucks, I think even X570 Auros elite it replaced had the newer audio


Gigabyte to me has improved the most.

The prices on motherboards just don't make sense. Even with the silicon shortages. They just don't make sense and haven't for a few years now.
