MSI presents golden motherboard for Skylake chips

MSI has presented a new motherboard, designed for Intel’s Skylake processors, which comes in an unusual color – gold. This seems to be the main selling point of this piece of hardware on a market that is now full of other LGA 1151 motherboards – and their number will only grow.

The new board has not been officially named so we are left guessing what its actual product name is. The board is based on the Intel B150 chipset and features two DDR4 memory slots, a single PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot as well as two PCI-E 3.0 x1 slots. Unfortunately these are the only tech specs that are available as of now.

The gold-colored board will likely be sold in China and the Middle East only, where, according to MSI, customers like this color. This means that people in the Western world will hardly see this interesting piece of hardware, but what can we do? Maybe MSI will have a special color for us too? This remains to be seen.
