ASUS Z170 Board Revealed


At Computex we have already seen motherboard from the likes of MSI and other manufactures, we had yet to see from ASUS until earlier today where we saw what looked to be their Z170 Deluxe series motherboard. 

This may not be a final production sample, but waht I see here is encouraging, nice big motherboard heatsinks, lovely white detailing and all of the motherboard connections that anyone can ask for.

To start off with this board supports USB 3.1, having two of the new connector and what looks like a USB Type-C connection at the rear and has four USB 3.0 connections, with two USB 3.0 internal headers, which is a first for me. 

Under the lower (some would call southbridge) heatsink we see that there is a single M.2 connector, which would be ideal for newer ultra fast NVMe SSDs. there is also a SATA Express port at the back and a total of 6 SATA 3.0 ports.

We can see that ASUS is still using dedicated sound components in this board, as is standard in many modern high end motherboards.

Below we also get to see Intel's new LGA 1051 socket, which will support Intel's Skylake CPUs. Right now it is unknown if ASUS as an OC Socket planned for this CPU, or if it is possable with this CPU.

Those memory lanes appear to be DDR3, I thought they were going for DDR4 with Skylake ? Unless it's just the angle.Quote

Skylake CPUs support both, so there will be boards that go DDR3 and some that go DDR4.

There are even some monsters that will use both (though not at the same time).Quote
