June, July and August in 2015 have all been a roller coaster of desktop and processor news. Intel officially launched the Broadwell processors at Computex, with NVIDIA also entering the GTX 980 Ti graphics card into the market for 4K gaming. AMD soon followed with the Fury X and Fury graphics cards featuring high bandwidth memory, and then Intel’s Skylake processors burst through the door, along with Z170 motherboards giving more desktop options and dual-channel DDR4 memory to remain a focal point for the rest of the year. The first Z170 motherboard up on deck is the MSI Z170A Gaming M7 from MSI, a $230 mid-high push into the gaming-focused market.
