— 10:00 AM on January 23, 2017

Intel's Kaby Lake desktop CPUs brought a ton of motherboards with them for enthusiasts of all stripes, and we've barely scratched the surface of what's out there so far. Asus is helping us get a fuller picture of the Z270 landscape with its ROG Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard, the fanciest in a new family of Republic of Gamers boards.

As the fanciest ROG Strix board, the Z270E boasts onboard Wi-Fi, tasteful RGB LED illumination, sensible M.2 slot locations, and much, much more. We'll be getting some Kaby Lake chips into this baby as soon as we can to see what Asus' latest can do, but folks planning new systems can get this board right now for $199.99 on Newegg. Stay tuned for our full review.
