A new Z370 motherboard has been revealed. This time it comes from Gigabyte and it is their Z370XP SLI. This motherboard is of course made for Intel’s upcoming 8th Generation Core “Coffee Lake” desktop processors. The Z370XP SLI is the successor to the Z270XP SLI and is part of Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable series.
Taking a look at the board it has a very similar design to the Z270XP SLI, although Gigabyte has added a contrasting white color to the PCB and heatsinks as well as a large I/O cover. As far as expansion goes there are three PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (2 are metal reinforced), and three x1 slots.
Storage is taken care of by two M.2 slots, six SATA 6GB/s ports, as well as dual USB 3.0 internal headers. The board does support Gigabyte’s RGB fusion, but it seems the only thing that lights up is the PCB isolation line where the audio components are.
No word on pricing, but expect this board to be pretty affordable. Intel will launch their 8th Generation Core “Coffee Lake” desktop processors on October 5th, expect to see this motherboard officially launched at that time.
