The major novelty of these new motherboards is that in addition to supporting the new Intel Xeon E3-1200 processors and RAM v5 DDR4 ECC, are also compatible with Intel Core processors sixth generation of midrange and low (Pentium, Celeron and Core i3).
These five new motherboards market-oriented high-end (although as you see the Skylake processors that are supported, ignoring the Xeon, are lower-middle range) have wide posibiliades users with Intel Xeon and They need a professional solution with a wide computing capacity but at the same time want to use their system as something more than just work. Thus:
They are compatible with the new Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 based on the manufacturing process to 14 nm Intel.
DDR4 RAM using ECC (Error Correcting Code), up to 64 GB of 2133 Mhz.
They have great potential for expansion thanks to the large number of PCI-Express socket integrated, particularly suitable for professional graphics NVIDIA Quadro or AMD FirePro.
Integrate the latest in connectivity, including USB 3.1 Type-C connector reversible, M.2 connectors for PCI-Express SSDs that support RAID and compatible with NVMe devices.
They have the best wired connection with the inclusion of the Killer E2400 network card, to reduce the lag in online gaming.
