Z97 Up For Sale At Newegg - USD $200 For MPower, USD $150 for UD3H, USD $250 for Sabertooth (Update: also in Taiwan and UK)

Even though the NDA for performance reviews is not up for another week or so, it appears Newegg has listed the first batch of Z97 motherboards. We can find the following models:

Motherboard Price
MSI Z97 MPower Max AC USD $260
ASUS Sabertooth Z97 USD $250
MSI MPower USD $200
MSI Z97-Gaming 7 USD $190
MSI Z97-Gaming 5 USD 160
ASUS Z97-A USD $150

I am not sure who has what NDA date, but this has certainly been one of the messiest platform launches in a while. Which is funny, considering that Z97 is only a minor update from Z87. In any case, the pricing seems very competitive and it might be so that the motherboard vendors want to cash in on the early adopters as fast as possible. All I know is that I am more looking forward to the upcoming Devil's Canyon and Pentium Anniversary Edition.
