    Well, the X570 version was ~ $1000 and, apparently, precious few made it past reviewers and sponsored modders and into the hands of consumers.

    Halo product aimed at promoting your brand.

    See also - Titan, Apple monitor stands and case feet etc.

    I'm pretty glad to see Asrock doing the Aqua line to the Z490 product line, unlike AMD doesn't overclock well, but intel does and this is the perfect motherboard if you want to overclock.

    Sponsored ones didn't come from the 999 IIRC, at least all the guys I know (myself included) had their names engraved in them rather than #/999.

    Doubt this will even see a release date this side of June... and given it's a limited run, many may not even get to the public.

    I understand. If I understand correctly, it is a limited series of only 999 pieces. Is correct? Thanks for your help.

    The way I read it, yes. That doesn't mean that a 'less prestigious' version will not be available to the public... same spec., but not 100% as 'fancy'.

    I understand. A similar version may also be interesting, perhaps at a more accessible cost.

    I'd say the reverse is true, you need a better motherboard to get a better overclock out of a stubborn chip. You could probably run a 10900k @5.3 all cores on a pancake.

    One thing is for sure, it's so dam beautiful.
