Intel Skylake corresponds to the Intel 100 series chipset, including the Z170, Z150, Q170, Q150, B150 and H110. Today BIOSTAR has officially unveiled their upcoming 100-Series powered GAMING Z170X4 motherboard.

BIOSTAR GAMING Z170X4: First Z170 Skylake Motherboard
Uncovered by 4Gamer as a piece of an official press discharge by Biostar, the company showcases their GAMING Z170X4 motherboard which as the name proposes, highlights the Z170 chipset, and the LGA 1151 socket for the Intel’s 6th Generation Skylake processors which will hit retail in September.

The Skylake Z170 chip can be seen in uncovering and takes a little measure of space contrasted with past chipsets. Notwithstanding, Skylake motherboards will highlight optimized performance and stability for the up and coming processors and we hope to see huge amounts of outline amid Computex 2015.
