Newegg Canada Lists Gigabyte and MSI Z390 Motherboards (Updated)

UPDATE 10/5/2018 8:30 pm PST: Gigabyte listed all of its new Z390 motherboards on its public site. We've listed and linked the product pages below. Gigabyte's posting also confirms Intel's 9th Generation branding for the Coffee Lake Refresh processors.

In a momentary misstep, Newegg Canada listed Gigabyte's and MSI's forthcoming motherboards built around Intel's high-end Z390 chipset. The Canadian computer hardware retailer has since taken down the listing, but not before giving us a quick glimpse of the initial motherboard lineups from both vendors along with the pricing for each model.

MSI Z390 Motherboards

MSI isn't ready to play second fiddle to the Gigabyte just yet. The Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer will introduce seven unique models that target different price segments. The MSI Meg Z390 Godlike is the flagship motherboard of MSI's Z390 lineup. It's expected to cost around $665.60, which is pretty insane for a motherboard that's based on a non-HEDT (high-end desktop) platform. 

Consumers who are looking for a more austere Z390 motherboard can turn to the MSI Z390-A Pro as it comes with the bare minimum. Newegg Canada had the motherboard listed for around $160.99 so it's the direct rival to Gigabyte's Z390 UD offering.
