Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 ATX Motherboard Review
GIGABYTE has come up with two of its best motherboard for gaming very recently in the market viz. the Z170X Ultra Gaming and the Z170X Designare. The products were launched keeping in mind the target market of Z170 buyers, users and power users. This product is very different from the other gaming motherboards launched by GIGABYTE in the Z170X series and definitely manages to stand out because of its first-class qualities.
The Z170X Ultra Gaming is the reborn version of Z170 board, but this time it has been reborn with the latest technology and features, and it has got all those basics which were earlier missing. This best board comes with top notch features such as the Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1, U.2, M.2 (32 Gb per second), USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb per second.
The best 1151 motherboard, by default, uses the Intel’s Turbo bins as it does not have multi-core enhancement enabled on it. Therefore, it does not push the entire CPU’s cores to the highest frequency at stock. When checked it 4.5G profile, the board showed a tremendous performance and even surpassed the performance of other boards. The improved microcode could probably be the reason why there is such a high increase in the performance of the board. The LGA1151 motherboard has the capacity to support the 6th and 7th generation of Intel Core Processors.
Since many of the users were demanding a colour neutral theme in boards for a long, long time, so, GIGABYTE designed the board with metal shielding instead of plastic. This gives it a neutral colour look; hence, the users do not have to worry much regarding the mismatches of their motherboards and their PC cases. This brilliantly designed piece carries the GIGABYTE’s latest features like the 100 W USB Type-C Support. There is also 2-Way SLI & Crossfire Multi-Graphics Support enabled on the board which will provide greater gaming experience. This best motherboard has been claimed to be the best support for the 3 Intel SSD 750 devices in RAID 0. The Z170 ATX Motherboard can be easily hailed to be a blessing as this one has got all that has been previously missing in the other Z170 motherboards.
