Leaked first photos from various Asus Kaby Lake motherboards

Technical specifications and some photos from several motherboards that Asus plans to launch with Intel’s next processor using Kaby Lake have leaked. More specifically, the motherboards which have been filtered belong mainly to the ROG series of this manufacturer and have, as expected given the range, the Z270 chipset, although another motherboard of a more normal range has also been leaked. The leaked models are the ROG Strix Z270E Gaming, the Strix Z270F Gaming, the TUF Z270 Mark 1 and the Prime Z270-A.

Starting with the most “basic” model of all, the Asus Prime Z270-A, is a model that moves away from the ROG series and concentrates on fulfilling its functions, but not just in any way since it comes as standard with power supply phases of type 8 + 2 + 2 managed by a digital controller, including an 8-pin connector and solid capacitors accompanying four slots for DDR4 RAM that allow the installation of modules that operate up to 3,866 MHz, three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (wired electrically as x16/x8/x4), four PCIe 3.0 x1 and two M.2 slots that are capable of moving data at a speed of 32 GB/s.

And now moving onto the more gaming oriented models, I’d like to start by speaking of the Asus TUF Z270 Mark 1, the model intended for those users looking for reliability and resistance above all else. After all, the motto of the TUF range is precisely “Tough inside and out”. This model follows the same specifications of the previous almost exactly except in the audio section, in this case the manufacturer has provided a SupremeFX SF1220A chip that comes with capacitors of the famous brand Nichicon for audiophiles.
