Z170 Classified, Z170 FTW and Z170 Stinger

In addition to the new EVGA Geforce GTX 980 Ti Classified Kingpin Edition graphics card, EVGA has also displayed its upcoming Intel Z170 Express chipset based motherboards for Intel 6th generation Skylake CPUs at Computex 2015 show in Taipei.

Pictured by EVGA's Jacob Freeman and posted at Twitter, all three EVGA socket LGA1151 motherboards are based on Intel's Z170 Express chipset and pack plenty of high-end features. The pictured lineup starts with EVGA Z170 Classified, the flagship offer which is aimed mostly at overclockers since it packs a 10-phase VRM powered by dual 8-pin EPS power connectors. It also features four DDR4 memory slots with support for up to 64GB of DDR4 3400MHz memory, five PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots and single PCI-Express 3.0 x4 slot, single M.2 slot, eight SATA 6Gbps ports and two SATA Express ports as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet and plenty of USB 3.0 ports.

The next in line is the EVGA Z170 FTW, which is mostly aimed at those looking for a high-end motherboard but without an extra overclocking features as this one will be powered by single 8-pin EPS power connector and most likely feature an 8-phase VRM. It also comes with four DDR4 memory slots, four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots, single PCI-Express 3.0 x4 slot, single M.2 slot, six SATA 6Gbps ports and lacks SATA Express ports, at least as far as we can see on the picture.

The last but not the least is the mini-ITX EVGA Z170 Stinger, which will appeal to those building a high-end SFF gaming rig. It comes with slightly toned down 6-phase VRM powred by a single 8-pin EPS power connector, only two memory slots, supporting up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, single PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot, four SATA 6Gbps ports but also retains some extra features like on-board buttons.

All three motherboard feature the same stealthy black/silver color scheme. Unfortunately, EVGA did not talk about the price or the actual availability date but we guess we will hear a lot more about them as soon as Intel officially launched its 6th generation Core Skylake desktop CPUs.
