Certain ASUS Z170 motherboards offer support for DDR3

One of the peculiar features of Intel’s latest CPU generation, codenamed Skylake, is that the chips in this line offer support for DDR3L memory, instead of regular DDR3 SDRAM that is all around us. This presents a problem to all the people who want a Skylake chip, yet they do not want to buy the still more expensive DDR4 memory.

Fortunately ASUS has thought of this issue – the company has released a few motherboards based on the Z170 chipset that offer support for regular DDR3 memory instead of DDR3L. Moreover the company says there shouldn’t be any problems for users combining a Skylake chip with DDR3 SDRAM.

These are the motherboards we are talking about – ASUS Z170-P D3 and Z170M-E D3. ASUS says these motherboards are fully compatible with 1.5V and 1.65V DDR3 memory modules, which means that you can combine a Skylake chip and your current DDR3 memory. If this is your dream combo, then you should hurry, though – ASUS says most people prefer to get DDR4 along with Skylake so these boards won’t last that long given the current market conditions.
