The Master also has 10Gbps networking instead of 2.5, and a better audio chipset.

But if you just need decent enough VRM's to run the i9 these higher end boards should be able to but are otherwise overkill.  If there wasn't a sub 300 dollar pick that was more than enough I'd be surprised.  You should even be able to find a good one under 250.  Just as you go lower down the product stack more companies will cheap out here.
