    Most gamers use dedicated graphics cards......and not every monitor supports display port. They're including the most commonly used ports.

    Whaa..? Z170, Z270, etc are performance/mainstream boards designed for that category of CPUs (4 cores). 6/8 core CPUs use x99 enthusiast motherboards. Were you thinking all motherboards for all Intel CPUs had universal sockets?

    I think that what he means is that Mainstream should already be at 8 cores and going up, while enthusiast go sky high with 18-20-22 etc, just like those Xeons, which prove that it's definitely possible.

    However, because AMD has been in the sewers for the past 5 years or so, Intel is just milking everyone with their outdated 4-core designs calling them "mainstream", when even crappy consoles from several years ago have 8... now even our phones have 8 (or 10).

    I really hope Zen manages to shake the market a bit... it's about damn time.

    Yes, or at least 6 cores.

    You're complaint is then more directed towards Intel, not the motherboard makers. Intels performance/mainstream is currently 4 cores (or 4c/8t). Were you expecting to see something different in Z270 boards?

    And who is the designer of the z270 chipset? Asrock?

    Im complaining about z270/kabylake/intel/mainstream.

    It´s time for a core upgrade in the mainstream segment.

    This looks like a fake if you ask me.

    Look at that dust in those sata ports and look at the Z270 looks like someone scratched it in on the Mobo HS.

    Xeon with mainstream chipset (1151) have only 4 core the socket to use more core and lane start at 2011-v3.

    it's not as AMD, the 1156 1150 and 1151 from intel are limited to 4 cores by hardware conception.
    (source: intel)

    on other hand 4c/8t with intel is far than enough for actual use as it does way better than AMD actual CPU with 8 real core... :pc1:

    for the future we will see when the new socket from Intel and the zen cpu from AMD will be reviewed.
