MSI's Z270 SLI Plus and Z270 SLI Motherboards Teased

On their Facebook page, MSI have given a little tease regarding their upcoming next generation Intel Z270 boards. Details are scarce at the moment, but these motherboards are to be marketed under MSI's PRO series, with the Z270 SLI Plus featuring a clean, high-contrast black and white color scheme, while the Z270 SLI opts for an almost totally black design.

The Z270 SLI Plus is the higher-end product of the two. It sports a 10-Phase PWM circuitry, cooled with the aid of two heatsinks in the ATX form-factor. As usual, it has four DIMM slots which leverage MSI's DDR4 Boost feature, and support for XMP profiles. All of these four DIMM slots are protected by metal shielding, and expansion slots include three PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16/x8/x8 electrical), three PCIe 3.0 x1 and two Turbo M.2 NVMe slots. Storage options include 6 SATA III ports and a dual USB 3.0 front panel header. It also features MSI's latest Audio Boost panel for premium audio quality, with what they call a "Mystic Light" RGB solution, and the I/O panel is covered by a black and white shroud.

The Z270 SLI features identical specs - at least, among those that were revealed. For now, the only difference that can be gleaned between the two is the color scheme difference, with the Z270 SLI sporting a somewhat more constrained heatsink and shroud design, and the DIMM slots, which appear to lack the metal shielding found on the Z270 SLI Plus. No further details were available, with pricing being totally absent for both motherboards.Source: WCCFTech

Or you could've credited MSI's Facebook page... I posted this in the forums a couple of days ago.
