Intel B250/H270 motherboards round-up: affordable basis for Kaby Lake

Seventh generation Core-boards without empty bank account


Connectivity: Storage

Thanks to the many lanes that the chipsets offer for extra functionality, we find quite a few M.2-slots on these boards. In the table below you can find the total amount of M.2-slots, with next to that the amount that actually has four PCIe 3.0-lanes worth of bandwidth. After all we still see slots that only support for example SATA-based M.2-SSDs.

Even this ASUS Strix B250G Gaming with an average price of about 89 pounds / 100 euros has two M.2-slots.

On every board the six SATA600-connectors offered by the chipset are utilized, without extra additions. Two Gigabyte boards even offer SATA-Express, but that standard truly went out quietly.
