Gigabyte Z170 overview

  • 1Description

The GA-Z170XP-SLI ATX Motherboard enables you to build a PC system using the performance of a 6th-generation Intel processor and up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM. This motherboard features an LGA1151 socket and four DIMM slots that can support 3466 MHz of overclocked memory. It comes with an internal M.2 and three SATA Express connectors that utilize the PCI express lanes to support faster SSDs. For external devices, two USB 3.1 ports are built into the back panel to quickly transfer data up to 10 Gb/s. One of these USB 3.1 ports is built with a type-C form factor so you can always plug the cable in the first try.

ASUS has outfitted this motherboard with three PCI Express 3.0 x16 and two PCI Express 3.0 x1 slots as well as two PCI slots. It comes with six SATA connectors that connect to storage and optical drives. In addition to the USB 3.1 ports, the back panel offers a PS/2, VGA, DVI-D, HDMI, and a RJ-45 port along with three USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and six audio ports. Native 4K support is available via HDMI when using an Intel processor with integrated Intel HD graphics. Moreover, Realtek ALC1150 delivers 7.1-channel audio through your speakers to complete the multimedia experience.

USB 3.1
The USB 3.1 ports transfer data at a rate of up to 10 Gb/s, which is twice as fast as USB 3.0. The USB 3.1 type-C port features a small, reversible design that allows you connect the very time. In addition, these ports are backwards compatible with existing USB devices.
Turbo B-Clock
The onboard TURBO B-Clock Tuning IC enables you to change the BCLK frequency from 90 to 200 MHz.
The M.2 slot utilizes the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface to deliver a bandwidth up to 32 Gb/s. This slot supports PCIe and SATA M.2 SSD devices.
APP Center
APP Center features a simply user interface that displays a collection of useful apps from Gigabyte. You can overclock your system with the Easy Tune app or share content to your mobile devices using Cloud Station.
SATA Express
This motherboard offers two SATA Express ports that uses the PCIe 3.0 x2 lane to deliver data transfer rates up to 16 Gb/s.
Multi-Graphics Supports
This motherboard supports 2-Way SLI or 3-Way CrossFire action, which delivers faster graphics performance without compromising on resolution.
Intel GbE LAN with cFosSpeed
Intel GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application that helps improve network latency, maintaining low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in a crowded LAN environment.
Audio Design
The Realtek ALC1150 is a multi-channel codec that delivers an audio listening experience with up to 115 dB SNR. The audio capacitors provide quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create realistic sound effects.
Ambient LED
LED programmable lights over the audio guard path allow you to configure them to beat to the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace to enhance the environment of your game, movie, or music. The Audio Noise Guard protects the motherboard's sensitive analog audio components.
15μ Gold-Plated CPU Socket Design
To provide reliability and longevity, the CPU socket has been gold-plated to help prevent corroded pins and bad contacts when used longer than an average workday.
DualBIOS Design
You can use the secondary BIOS when the primary BIOS fails due to a virus attack, hardware malfunction, incorrect OC settings, or power failure during the update process.
4K Ultra HD HDMI Support
This motherboard provides native 4K support with an integrated Intel HD Graphics via a HDMI port. In addition, HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
Included Software
