ECS took to Computex to showcase seven different motherboards from both AMD and Intel. First up we have the Z270 Lightsaber, which is great at deflecting laser blaster shots. It's an LGA 1151 socket motherboard, features 8-channel audio courtesy of a Realtek ALC 1150 audio chip, a Killer E2500 Gigabit controller, 1x M.2 slot with support for SATA, NVMe, and Intel Optane. There are 3x PCIe x16 slots, which work at x8 x8 x4 when all slots are populated, as is usual with Z270 motherboards.
Next up, and in a whole other league, we have the H110S-2P, which leverages the H110 chipset in a small, mini-ITX sized package. It features only two DDR4 slots, no expansion slots whatsoever, and Realtek supplied both the network and audio chops. You can count on a total of 3x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB 3.0 Type-A, and 1x Type-C. It includes a single SATA port, paired with 1x M.2 (2280) slot and a M.2 (2230) slot which supports a combo Bluetooth, Wifi Card.
Moving up a little in the motherboard scale, we have the Z270H4-I, a mATX motherboard which still only has two DIMM slots (supporting 3200 MT/s + DDR4). There's also a single PCIe x16 slot, And Realtek's ALC 1150 is in charge of sound again. Intel and Realtek share the network controller realm, there's support for Intel Optane technology, and other worthwhile features include a USB accelerator for mouse and keyboard, NIHICON audio capacitors, an expansion card for Wi-FI ac and Bluetooth capabilities.
Still on Intel, we now move on to the B250 chipset, with the B250H4-M8 and M8S motherboards, which has 2x DIMM slots, 1x PCIe x16, 2x PCIe x1, 1x PCI port, and a single M.2 slot, which supports only SATA on the M8S, but NVMe and Intel Optane on the M8. USB-wise there are 6x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 ports.
Moving on to the AMD side of the field, we find the B350-based B350AM4-M and B350AM4-MA motherboards, a socket AM4 motherboard with Ryzen and AMD 7th-GEN APU support. There are 4x DIMM slots, 2x PCIe x16 slots ((x16 and x4), 1x PCIe x1, and 1x PCI. Audio is taken care of Realtek's ALC 662 codec, where the MA version of the motherboard also includes an amplifier speaker header.
Last, but not least, ECS showed its A320AM4-M3 motherboard, which presents only 2x DIMM slots, 1x PCIe x16, 1x PCIe x1, and a slot for one M.2 NVMe drive in the 2242/2260/2280 formats. A Realtek ALC 662 codec handles audio, another Realtek chip handles netwroking in the vein of the RTL8111H Gigabit controller, and there's a total of 4x SATA 3 ports for your storage needs. USN options include 4x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0.
