MSI Z170 XPOWER Titanium Review
Published: 23rd October 2015 | Source: MSI | Price: £229.99 @ OCUK |
The XPOWER range from MSI have long been at the top of their motherboard selection. Whilst modern motherboards are close enough in performance that the majority of differences are largely either cosmetic or about icing on the cake, the XPOWER managed to remain relevant due to its unique colour scheme of yellow and black, alongside a monster specification that meant it came with every current technology around.
You could be forgiven for expecting the new XPOWER Titanium to follow the yellow and black colour scheme. After all, why would you develop an easily recognisable hue if you're going to change it? MSI clearly disagrees and have taken a serious step away from the regular motherboard colourings to bring us the Titanium. So let's crack on.
Specifications follow the XPOWER ethos of throwing everything available at it. USB 3.1, M.2 support, SATA Express, the Titanium has huge bandwidth technologies wherever you look.
