MSI bundles Skylake motherboard with PC game

The maker of motherboards MSI, along with Ubisoft Entertainment, has announced a new gaming combo that includes a motherboard for Intel’s Skylake processors and a PC game. The motherboard is called Z170A KRAIT Gaming R6 Siege and has arrived into this world to celebrate both the new MSI-Ubisoft Entertainment partnership as well as the game studio’s Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege PC game.

Specs-wise the Z170A KRAIT Gaming R6 Siege motherboard is based on the high-end Intel Z170 chipset and features a LGA 1151 socket for all current and future Intel 6th generation Core processors, also known as Skylake. The board comes with four DDR4 memory slots for up to 64 GB of memory at 2133-3600 MHz and there’s even support for ECC memory. In addition to this the Z170A KRAIT Gaming R6 Siege offers four PCI-E 3.0 x1 slots for peripheral devices, three PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots for video cards, M.2 and SATA Express ports for high-speed storage devices, four USB 2.0 ports, Realtek ALC1150 sound, an Intel I219-V Ethernet port, HDMI and DVI-D connectors, a PS/2 connector, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, one USB 3.1 Type-A port, six SATA 3.0 ports and more.

By purchasing the new Z170A KRAIT Gaming R6 Siege gamers will get a free copy of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege PC game (Standard Edition) starting on December 1, 2015. The promotion takes place in a limited number of countries and lasts until March 1, 2015. Unfortunately it is not clear how much the Z170A KRAIT Gaming R6 Siege costs but given the specs it will likely require a bit more money than most other LGA 1151 boards.
