Gigabyte GA-Z170X overview

  • 1Description

The GA-Z170X-Gaming GT LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte provides an LGA 1151 socket that enables you to build a Windows system running on a 6th-generation Intel processor. It provides four DIMM slots that support up to 32GB of DDR4 memory modules. This ATX motherboard supports 2-way SLI and 3-way CrossFire technologies via the three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. To complete the multimedia experience, a Creative Sound Core 3D audio chip along with two TI Burr Brown amps immerse you in sounds.

For long-term storage compatibility, Gigabyte has designed this motherboard with multiple interfaces for various types of storage drives. It has eight SATA III ports for supporting legacy optical drives and storage drives. There are also two M.2 slots, utilizing multiple PCI lanes to deliver bandwidths up to 32 Gb/s. Moreover, three SATA Express connectors combine the benefits of PCI Express and SATA technologies to deliver fast data transfer rates.

With an integrated Intel graphics processor, this motherboard is capable of outputting 4K visuals to your display via its DisplayPort and HDMI port. It sports five USB 3.0 ports for connecting to printers, scanners, and other peripherals. Two USB 3.1 ports transmit speeds of up to 10 Gb/s and one of these ports features a small, reversible type-C design so you can connect a USB Type-C cable the very first time. For networking and audio needs, two Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports as well as six audio jacks are built into this motherboard. When additional connections are required, three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots allow you to install optional controller cards.
