MSI announces their new Z170A Gaming M6 motherboard, featuring a new "evil grey" colour scheme, lighting USB and Killer networking. 

With lightning USB MSI has connected their USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports via PCIe Gen3 x2 instead of PCIe Gen3 x1 or PCIe Gen2 x2, allowing MSI to offer higher potential data rates than competing solutions. This is possible by using ASMedia's new 2142 USB 3.1 Gen2 controller instead of their older 1142 controller, allowing USB 3.1 Gen2 devices to run much faster, especially when using several devices at once.   

MSI has also given this board dual M.2 slots, with this motherboard supporting M.2 SSD raid to give end users the best possible boot times and the lowest game loading times.   MSI announces their new Z170A Gaming M6 motherboard

Right now MSI has not revealed when this new motherboard will make it to stores or it's intended pricepoint, though at this time we expect it to be priced somewhere between MSI's existing Z170A Gaming M5 and Gaming M7 motherboards.
