These boards look very nice.
I love that the otherwise cool msata onboard port has been switched with an m.2 port. Now we can get ssd's with over 1GByteps speeds (with pci controller, not sata controller).
On MSI's site it says 10gbps on the m.2 port. Does that mean it's only 1 lane pcie 3.0?
Imagine these boards with this black m.2 ssd with pcie controller directly on the motherboard:
The only thing I'd change on these new boards, are the super cheesy "Audio Boost" pink light up plastic box. It really looks bad.
Asus' version is vastly superior in design and looks in my mind. Please make something similar MSI; it would make your mobos so much nicer
