Ready for 7th Generation Intel Core Kaby Lake processors, the Prime Z270-A LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from ASUS is designed to fit in standard sized ATX cases. The Prime Z270-A supports both 6th and 7th generation Intel Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors, the LGA 1151 socket, and the Z270 chipset. This motherboard is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), and 7 (32/64-bit) operating systems, although Windows 8.1 and 7 are only supported with 6th generation Intel processors. Also supported is USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C, each of which can achieve data transfer rates of up to 10 Gb/s, while a Thunderbolt 3 header will support a Thunderbolt 3 add-on card.
The ATX form factor of the Prime Z270-A can support 64GB of RAM and comes with four 288-pin dual-channel DIMM slots that can each hold 16GB of DDR4 3866 (OC), 3800 (OC), 3733 (OC), 3600 (OC), 3466 (OC), 3400 (OC), 3333 (OC), 3300 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666 (OC), 2400 (OC), and 2133 MHz non-ECC unbuffered memory. It also has a total of 6 x SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, 2 x M.2 Socket 3 connectors that support SATA & PCIe SSDs, 1 x 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C port, 1 x 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-A port, 6 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports (4 at the back panel, 2 at the front), 6 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and 1 x Gigabit LAN port. To provide data redundancy, RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 modes are supported. For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, there are 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots (single at x16, dual at x8/x8) and 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (max at x4).
For delivering sharp, clear graphics, this motherboard contains integrated Intel HD Graphics with access to up to 1,024MB of shared graphics memory and is equipped with HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI video outputs. There is also multi-GPU support for NVIDIA 2-Way SLI technology, as well as AMD 3-Way CrossFireX technology. Using the ALC S1220A 8-Channel HD audio codec, this motherboard can support 8-channel HD audio.
