The EVGA Z170 FTW motherboard is engineered to win. Designed for next generation hardware, the EVGA Z170 FTW features a new BIOS GUI interface designed to be fast and have the best overclocking support and functionality. A highly efficient VRM provides the cleanest power to the CPU possible, fed through a CPU socket that has 1.5X the amount of gold content for improved signal quality. A total of 4 DIMM slots support up to 64GB of DDR4 memory and the PCI Express layout is optimized for improved lane distribution and better performance with native support for NVIDIA SLI technology.
Intel® Z170 Platform Unlocks Incredible Efficiency
Intel® Z170 Chipset
• Supports up to 8 CPU threads (4-core)
• Supports DDR4 Memory
• First to support PCI-E 3.0 from PCH
• Up to 11% Faster CPU (SPECint_rate_base2006)
• 22% Lower TDP (65W vs 84W)
• Up to 28% Faster Intel HD Graphics (3DMark 11 Graphics Score)
6 Layer PCB
High layer count enhances stability both for heavy loads as well as high overclocking.
2-Way SLi + PhysX Support
The EVGA Z170 FTW is rated for up to 2-way SLi + PhyX to handle the most demanding video loads.
The Z170 FTW includes support for full size storage and WiFi from the M.2 jacks.
High Gold Content For CPU Socket
Higher volume of precious metal (150% Gold) used in the sockets greatly improves the conductivity and produces a cleaner signal due to less resistance/Impedance.
Onboard Power, Reset and CMOS Reset Buttons
When testing on the Z170, or running it in a benching environment, you do not need to worry about wiring the board to a case to have access to power and reset buttons, as they are built onto the board.
6 Phase PWM
A 6 Phase PWM helps to ensure that the power reaching the processor is clean and stable.
Top Notch Integrated Peripherals
The Z170 FTW is not just focused on the upper end of extreme builds, but also with the smaller components as well. 8 Channel HD audio and an integrated Intel NIC ensure you have the best quality sound and network connection right out of the box.
