Is it me or is the Z97 motherboard landscape saturated to high hell? Is there any reason for each of the manufacturers to release as many boards as all of them have done so? Gigabyte for instance have a whopping 24 Z97 motherboards up on their website. Were it me, I'd nearly be buying whatever the cheapest one is.
Don't get me wrong, they've all upped their game big time this generation and last generation with the Z87 boards, heck even the high end Kaveri FM2+ boards were a lot better than we've seen in the past.
