Intel Skylake Motherboard Has On-Board GTX 1070 GPU, Next Hardware for Upcoming Consoles?
You asked for more power and here you have it. All the power that you need for your demanding games with this Intel Skylake motherboard with on-board GTX 1070 GPU power house. Here is a ton of GPU and CPU power on a single PCB. High end power and small form factor all in one. We might be looking at what the next generation consoles will feature. This combo of Intel Skylake motherboard with on-board GTX 1070 GPU was showcased by Colorful.
By the looks of things, it is pretty clear that this is not for the standard ATX build. Certainly it will be used for consoles or streaming devices and looking at the performance gap between PC and consoles, I believe that this was overdue. This could in turn shorten that gap and provide the much required power that modern day titles need. In the small form factor market, this Intel Skylake motherboard with on board GTX 1070 GPU has huge potential.
Along with this combo of CPU and GPU you get a pair of mini PCIe slots that can be used for wireless card or maybe a small SSD. This type of small gaming technology might allow the console to come at par with the PC and it might push PC hardware manufacturers to create something more portable and travel friendly.
The benchmarks of this Intel Skylake motherboard with on board GTX 1070 GPU combo still remain to be seen. As is mostly the case with small form factor often you compromise on temperature and stability. We will have to wait and see what this CPU and GPU combo give up to achieve such a portable design. With great power comes great responsibility and we would like to see all that power properly delivered without the fuss or drama.
