EVGA has unveiled its Intel Skylake processors supported motherboards powered with Intel’s 100 series chipset at ComputeX 2015. The two focused motherboard for Overclockers are the main core of the exhibition, talking about the EVGA FTW Z170 and Z170 EVGA Classified.

EVGA FTW Z170 and Z170 EVGA Classified: Motherboards for Overclockers

EVGA-FTW-Z170

The EVGA FTW Z170 has a VRM 10-phase supply with a socket LGA1151 supported by the chipset Intel Z170 and joined DDR4 four DIMM slots,  four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots, one PCIe x1. Draws attention to cleaning the PCB and the lack of a connector M.2. The specifications are completed with six ports SATA III 6.0 Gbps, 7.1 audio Creative Core 3D, Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, and several ports USB 3.1. Its price would be around 149 euros.

On the other hand, the EVGA Classified Z170 is aimed at the most demanding Overclockers, which is why in addition to the classic ATX 24-pin connector next to the 8-pin EPS to power the motherboard will require another EPS connector to meet energy demand. The VRM grows to the 12 phases, we find five PCIe 3.0 x16 x3.0 next to a PCIe x4 slot for high-performance SSDs and one M.2 connector for high-end SSDs M.2 2280. The specifications are completed four SATA III 6.0 Gbps, two SATA Express, Core Creative 3D audio, multiple USB 3.1, one Thunderbolt March and would cost around 299 euros.

Intel Skylake processors hits the retail market in September 2015.
