MSI has posted photos of their upcoming Z170 Gaming M series motherboards on Facebook. This series is made up of the Z170A Gaming M5, the Z170A Gaming M7, and the Z170A Gaming M9 ACK. We have to point out that the “M” does not mean these boards are micro-ATX board, but rather to let you know these are MSI Gaming products. MSI’s competitors have imitated the naming scheme they used on their Z97 motherboards.
Reviewing motherboards here at ThinkComputers one of the most vital things is being extremely careful when installing the CPU. Bending the pins on an Intel socket is easily achieved and is one of the top reasons many motherboards fail or have to be RMA’d. Because of this ASUS has come up with a new CPU Instllation Tool.
We have been waiting in anticipation for Intel’s Skylake platform for a while now. We got a glimpse of what to expect as many motherboard manufacturers showed off their Skylake motherboards at Computex last month. Well the release dates for Intel’s Skylake processors and accompanying chipsets to support the processors have been revealed!
ASUS has just introduced two new mini-ITX motherboards that are based on the Intel quad-core N3150 and N3050 SoCs. These two new boards are the N3150-C and N3050C and feature SoC’s that are based on the Baswell silicon that features embedded quad-core or dual-core CPUs based on the 64-bit x86 Airmont CPU micro-architecture.
Gigabyte has just unveiled their new Gaming G1 Series Z170 motherboards at Computex 2015. These have to be some of the most impressive motherboards we have seen so far at Computex! These motherboards feature a brand new color design that has an all black PCB, with white and red accents that just looks awesome!
EVGA is showing three new motherboards that are ready for Skylake and based on the Z170 chipset. These three new motherboards include the Z170 Classified, Z170 FTW, and the Z170 Stinger. The flagship board is the Z170 Classified, it features a 10 phase PWM design and gets power from a combination of 24pin and dual 8pin connectors.
ASUS was not only showing off Z170 motherboards at Computex, they had a few new server and workstation motherboards based on the Intel X99 chipset. These motherboards include the X99-E WS/USB 3.1, X99-WS/IPMI, and the X99-M WS.
It looks like everyone is showing off their Skylake motherboards at Computex this year. ASRock is showing off quite a few different motherboards that are made for Intel’s upcoming 6th Generation Core Processors. These motherboards include the Z170 Extreme7, Z170 Extreme6, Z170 Extreme4, Z170 Pro4, and B150M-HDS/D3.
MSI is showing off two new motherboards from their upcoming third-generation “GAMING” motherboard series at Computex. These motherboards include the Z170A-G45 Gaming and the X99A-GODLIKE Gaming. It looks like MSI is moving away from the “3/5/7/9” naming as Gigabyte is copying it.
A list has appeared online of ASUS’s upcoming series 100 motherboards. These motherboards are aimed at Intel’s upcoming Skylake processors that are set to be released later this year. According to this list ASUS will be releasing 21 motherboards based on the Z170, H170 and H110 chipsets.
