Spotted by Techpowerup.com and based on a standard ATX form-factor, the new Gigabyte X170-Extreme ECC motherboard uses a gaming-oriented military color theme with black PCB white camo graphics and different color slots, despite the fact that it is based on a workstation-class chipset. In addition to the support for Xeon Skylake E3-1200 V5 CPUs and DDR4 ECC memory, the Gigabyte X170-Extreme ECC motherboard also supports all other Skylake Core CPUs.
The rest of the specifications and features include two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (working at x8/x8), a single PCI-Express 3.0 x16 (working at x4) and three PCI-Express 3.0 x1 slots. It also comes with two 32Gbps M.2 slots and four SATA-Express 16Gbps ports, splitting into eight SATA 6Gbps ports. The two 32Gbps M.2 slots and four SATA-Express 16Gbps ports are complemented with rather modern USB 3.1 connectivity, based on Intel chip, which connects to the PCH via PCI-Express 3.0 x4 interface, offering 10Gbps over both USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C ports. It also features a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 port with DisplayPort 1.2 pass-through.
Gigabyte managed to include a couple of high-end and gaming features with the X170-Extreme ECC motherboard, including a dual Gigabit Ethernet, based on Intel I219-V controller and Killer E2400 chip, Gigabyte's Creative SoundCore 3D audio with TI Burr Brown OPA2134 OP-AMP, Nichicon Muse electrolytic capacitors and ground-layer isolation and a dual-UEFI BIOS.
Unfortunately, Gigabyte did not reveal any details regarding the price so we'll have to wait for it to hit retail/e-tail.
