In addition to the ECS Z270-LIGHTSABER, the company discussed another motherboard which adopts the Mini-ITX form factor. The Z270H4-I can utilise up to 32GB RAM and supports speeds in excess of 3200MHz. As you might expect, the motherboard has one PCI-E x16 slot to house a graphics card within a smaller case. When it comes to networking, Z270H4-I has two NICs in the form of the Intel i219V and Realtek R118AS. ECS’ Dual LanFast II provides a better networking experience when playing games and reduces annoying lag. If you require a wireless connection, it’s possible to acquire an optional module and take advantage of two external 5GHz signal amplifiers. Plus, the WiFi aspect supports 802.11ac Wave 2, MU-MIMO and Transmit Beamforming.
The motherboard’s audio solution is based on the Realtek ALC1150 codec and has an independent power supply as well as Nichicon capacitors. The Z270H4-I contains an M.2 connector on the rear of the PCB and allows you to achieve incredible read/write rates. Connectivity-wise, the motherboard has a PS/2 combo port, HDMI, DisplayPort, five USB 3.0, USB 3.1 Type-C, 5-audio jacks and S/PDIF.
