MSI will be launching the Z270 Tomahawk Opt Boost, which will feature support for high-speed DDR4, USB 3.1 ports, and dual M.2 slots - with MSI using a 16GB Optane drive in the second M.2 slot on the board.

The second board is the B250M Bazooka, a micro-ATX motherboard on the mid-range B250 chipset, meaning it will not have overclocking support, with its single M.2 slot used up by the Optane drive.

MSI's last Opt Boost board is the B250M Pro, whcih is a lower-end board with a single M.2 slot and USB 3 .1 - priced at just $90.

 

There's no ETA on the new Opt Boost boards, so we'll be keeping our ears close to the ground for more details.
