MSI debuts the Z170A MPower Gaming Titanium motherboard

MSI has pushed the development of Intel’s LGA 1151 platform one step further by announcing the new Z170A MPower Gaming Titanium motherboard.

The board obviously comes with an LGA 1151 socket and Intel’s Z170 chipset and supports all current Intel Skylake processors. It has an 11-phase CPU VRM and reinforcement braces along the four DDR4 DIMM slots it comes with. In addition to this, the new Z170A MPower Gaming Titanium sports three PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots (x16/NC/x4 or x8/x8/x4) and three PCI-E 3.0 x1 slots.

The connectivity options of the MSI Z170A MPower Gaming Titanium include two 32 Gb/sec M.2 slots, one 32 Gb/sec U.2 port and six regular SATA ports with support for SATA 3.0. The board also features seven USB 3.0 ports, two USB 3.1 ports (one Type-A and one Type-C, AudioBoost 3 on-board 7.1-channeled audio and one Gigabit Ethernet connector that is controlled by an Intel chip.
