    I'm sorry, but how can any self respecting company release a 'gaming' motherboard without SLi support out of the box? Am I missing something here?

    The logical thinking would be that someone spending under £100 on a 'gaming' motherboard isn't going to want to spend the extra money to SLi or CrossFire anyway. They also are probably people like me who can't be bothered with the expense and hassle and just buy a better single card, then sell that and upgrade to an even better single card later.

    Re: Gigabyte Z170-Gaming K3

    Can someone explain to me why MB's are still putting sata express ports onto the boards. I still haven't seen a drive being sold for this port, and besides, today's SSDs now need faster ports. So it looks like outdated and underutilized tech to me.
