MSI Teases its First Intel 200-series Chipset Motherboard

This could very well be the first picture of a socket LGA1151 motherboard based on Intel's upcoming 200-series chipset, which succeeds the 100-series. Named the Z2T0-Anniversary (is that a typo for Z270-Anniversary?), the board is likely based on the chipset that succeeds the Z170-Express (Z270-Express?), and will be timed with Intel's launch of the 7th generation Core "Kaby Lake" processors. MSI did not finalize the board's aesthetics (heatsink design, PCB markings), but the development board seems pretty loaded with features, that rival the current Z170A-Gaming M7 (we know this from the 6-layer PCB markings). MSI says that the board will be launched in November, 2016.

It was launched nearly a year ago now i believe, it's just that the adaptation of it was not so great i suppose.

Probably because CPU's for it don't really offer anything over older generations. If Skylake had eDRAM like it was initially thought and at least 6 cores with HT for these 6700k these would sell great. This way, people rather take X99 instead. Or just stay with 4900K generation or even with old 2600K.

Or the 2 could signify a change in chip set to work with XEON processors.
A few manufacturers are bringing them out now as Xeon isn't compatible with standard intel consumer chip sets.
