First Intel Skylake Motherboards Spotted; Expected to Launch September 2015

Last week some leaked details appeared for the Intel Skylake processors, and today we have some information on the motherboards. Chinese company Colorful recently held an event to show off some of the Intel Z170 chipset motherboards it's working on, which use the new LGA 1151 socket for the Skylake processors. None of the motherboards have a finalized color or name scheme, but all show off the new features Intel is implementing in the chipset. Three different motherboards are seen, with support for up to 64GB of DDR4 2133MHz RAM. All three feature VRM cooling by way of thermal armor, and one even has that armor down near the PCIe slots. Three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots are seen on all the motherboards, as are three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots and even an M.2 port. There are also USB 3.0 ports, USB 2.0 ports, onboard audio powered by Gamer Voice, Dual Gigabit LAN, a Killer E2201 chip, and Intel I211-AT to help with connectivity.

All of these features and more will be seen on Intel Z170 motherboards likely to be shown off during Computex. That's still a little over a month away, but we should at least get an idea of what Intel has in store for the future. The Intel Z170 motherboards and Skylake processors are expected to arrive this September.

Just a guess, but I think the color scheme might be black and red.  I dunno, just a guess. :teehee:
