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

Seventh generation Core-boards without empty bank account


Connectivity: Network

Even in this segment we find the PHY-chip on a lot of motherboards, which is necessary in order to use the Intel network controller in the chipset. Because of this, one Gigabyte board uses a Realtek-NIC instead and two more expensive boards are equipped with Killers. More luxurious features such as WiFi are not found.

Gigabyte B250M-DS3H
The dirt cheap Gigabyte B250M-DS3H is the only board that has a Realtek-NIC.
