EVGA joins in on the Intel Z170 Skylake motherboard review fun with its Z170 Classified. EVGA is known for big features and performance, does it continue?

EVGA is a household name when it comes to GPUs, but when it comes to motherboards, they are a lesser-known player in a saturated market. EVGA is known for their high-quality production and larger than life feature sets, but every generation they only launch a few motherboards. I reviewed the Z170 FTW a month ago, and I was impressed by the quality. Now that it has been a few months since launch many manufacturers have improved their BIOS support as well as overclocking, and EVGA sent over their Z170 Classified.



There is one feature that sets the Z170 Classified apart from the competition; it supports 3-way and 4-way SLI. While this might seem like something better suited for the X99 platform, there are still those who would rather save some money and take advantage of the new PCH and its offerings. The Classified line has a long history of success; let us see how the latest iteration does!







The Z170 Classified provides many high-end features including, 32Gbps M.2, 2x Intel Gbit NICs, 8x SATA6gbps (with 2x SATA Express), Creative Core3Di audio, an internal USB 3.1 header, and support for 3 and 4-way SLI.





At the time of writing, the Z170 Classified is priced at $399 on Newegg, making it one of the most expensive Z170 motherboards.
