A first look at the LGA 1151 motherboard from ASRock will support Skylake CPU’S
There are confirming reports that the ASRock LGA 1151 has been spotted at the trade fair in Nuremberg where ASRock is the first to show a motherboard that supports the LGA 1151 processors Skylake.
That means this is the worlds first mother board to support the 6th Generation Skylake Processors.
While Skylake should support DDR3 and DDR4, these are two SO-DIMM slot DDR3L-1600 are integrated. There is also a PCIe x4, 1 mSATA and mini-PCIE, while the rear connector offers among other 4 USB 3.0 ports and no less than 2 ports Gigabit Ethernet and 3 HDMI outputs. ASRock includes in addition to which to manage 4 COM ports, protocol still used in the embedded world.
Reminder Skylake be launched between August and October 2015, we should see a lot of LGA 1151 motherboards at Computex in June.
According to wccftech:
The motherboard revealed by ASRock is their IMB-190 that features the Mini-ITX form factor design. This board comes with a range of features such as the LGA 1151 socket which is listed to support Intel’s next generation of Skylake processors (Core i7/i5/i3/Celeron). The board also comes with a next generation PCH, the current SKU for the PCH is not mentioned but we suspect it to be the Q170 series chipset on-board this little board. It’s seen from the specification sheet that the motherboard has support for DDR3L 1600 MHz memory (SO-DIMM) for up to 16 GB capacities. Display options include 3 x HDMI, 1 x 24-bit Dual Channel LVDS or eDP (Display Port) technology. I/O on the board consists of 4 USB 3.0, 4 USB 2.0, 2 SATA 3 and 1 mSATA connectors. Expansion slots include 1 mini PCIe, 1 mSATA and a single PCI-e x4 interface. There’s a Gigabit LAN at the rear I/O panel and power is supplied through 12-24 V DC-in power source.
