Intel is ramping up towards their release of Kaby Lake, led by the enthusiast Core i7-7700K processor (which runs at 100C under load) - and now, we have leaked details on the entire Z270-based line up from ASUS.
ASUS's next-gen Maximus, Strix, and TUF series products are on their way, and they look delicious. ASUS will be revealing 8 motherboards based on the Z270 chipset, but there will be other H170-based boards released, aimed at mid- and budget-minded consumers. All of the ASUS Z270-based boards will be enthusiast/overclocker/gaming boards, and we are beyond excited.
The best of the best from the Z270 series by ASUS will be the ROG Maximus IX Formula, with the usual upgrades over the Z170-based motherboards, but it rocks an awesome integrated I/O and backplate.
