Intel Z170 motherboards will launch this August

 

Several hardware manufacturers have confirmed that Socket 1151 motherboards (with the Z170 chipset) will release in August. With this, it seems that Skylake will launch very soon after the release of Broadwell, which Intel has delayed for quite a while. Broadwell will launch in the next 30 to 60 days. Anyway, enough about Broadwell. You're here for Skylake. Representatives of MSI and Biostar have confirmed that their Z170 motherboards will be available for purchase in August.

Skylake will launch on a completely new socket (1151), and is a 'tock' in Intel's Tick-Tock design model. It's the first consumer-grade platform to support DDR4 memory, and it will increase bandwidth between chipset and CPU.

Aside from MSI and Biostar, ASUS also confirmed they will have a pre-built PC with Skylake launching in September. ASRock also confirmed that 100 series chipset motherboards will launch early August, with the Skylake CPUs following later that month. However, Intel might change the schedule, as no exact release date has been given.

Quite like the look of that, bit OTT IMO on the branding but I like it!

Those screw heads have me intrigued as to whether this board will allow watercooling? Quote

Question, How is JR doing colabs with Parvum ? No offense meant to the guy but he is a no body like most of us here, I could understand doing colabs with people of known skill but a uni student who's only credit is being overly clean with his builds and who no one has ever heard of seems mighty strange to me

It's like me going up to Caselabs and saying "Gimme stuff so I can build a rig and take photos of it" Quote
