Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel ATX DDR4 Motherboards GA-Z170X-GAMING 6 Review
With their decision to expand and work harder on the range of their gaming line, GIGABYTE has come up with this excellent piece of creation, the Z170X-Gaming 6. This the Z170X-Gaming 6 motherboard happens to fall between the Gaming 5 motherboard and the Gaming 7 motherboard in the matter of both prices as well as the features that it possesses.
The best motherboard has been launched with some cosmetic changes along with the new Z170 chipset. The overall design of the board is new, but the colour scheme of black and red is the same as old. Certainly, you cannot claim that there is a shortage of connectors on the board. The heat sinks on the motherboard, as is noticed, are usually black with red and grey highlights on them. The Intel’s 1151 socket is the heart of this Z170X-Gaming 6 board. At the lower end, you will find that most of the front panel connections are set up in that place. The Amp-up Audio has been the prime sound source which marks an upgradable OP-AMP.
The LGA 1151 motherboard has the capability to support both the 7th generation as well as the 6th generation Intel Core Processors. There are dual channels built into the motherboard viz. DDR4 and 4 DIMMs. It has Intel USB 3.1 with USB Type-C which has also been claimed to be the World’s Next Universal Connector. There are 3 SATA Express connectors which provide up to 16 GB per second of data transfer. Its other features include ATX Form Factor of 30.5cm x 24.4cm, 115dB SNR HD Audio along with a really amazing built-in rear audio amplifier. It supports Dual PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Connectors with up to 32Gb per second Data Transfer (PCIe NVMe & SATA SSD support) and 3-Way Graphics Support with that also makes use of extra metal shielding over the PCIe Slots for better protection.
