Press releases and previews of nifty kit you can't buy yet are great fun but occasionally you want to take a break and read a review with some substance.  The Tech Report has just such content on offer, a review of the new MSI Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard.  The design of the board is reminiscent of the previous generation as the socket remains the same, however this particular design is quite crowded around the socket which can limit the available cooling options.  As you should expect, the board has RGB LEDs controlled by Mystic Light and the BIOS has updated versions of both Command Center and Gamming App utilities.  The benchmarks back up the predictions we have made, the Z270 is a more polished version of the Z170 but there are no huge performance differences to be noted.  Read on for the full story.

"MSI's Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard serves up the Z270 platform with a gaming bent and a lot of RGB LED lighting. We put this board through its paces to see whether MSI stuck the landing for its next generation of mainstream motherboards."

Intel shot themselves in the foot with Skylake, than offed themselves with Kaby Lake. Good riddance. No one cares about 270-anything.
