Intel Z87 Desktop Board DZ87KLT-75K Spotted

By - Source: eTeknix | B 23 comments

Some images and details have surfaced regarding one of Intel's upcoming Desktop Boards.

Image Source: eTeknixImage Source: eTeknixThe folks over at eTeknix have given us a sneak-peak at Intel's upcoming DZ87KLT-75K motherboard. This is a Z87-based motherboard that is ready to be used with the upcoming fourth generation of Intel Core-i Series processors. The motherboard features an 8-phase VRM design, which fuels the CPU and draws its power from a single 8-pin EPS connector.

Image Source: eTeknixImage Source: eTeknixThe board features room for up to four DDR3 memory banks, features a blue and black design, and has a total of four 4-pin PWM fan headers.

Expansion is handled by three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, another three PCIe x1 slots, and a legacy PCi slot. Storage comes in the form of eight SATA3 ports, six through the Z87 chipset and another two through a third party controller. In addition, there is also a mini-PCIe slot which can also function as an mSATA slot. Rear I/O connectivity is taken care of by six USB 3.0 ports, one 800 Mb/s FireWire port, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, 7.1 channel HD analog audio, Optical SPDIF out, and a first-gen Thunderbolt port which also works as a mini-DisplayPort. A separate model, the DZ87KL-70K, will not feature the Thunderbolt port -- the port will just work as a mini-DisplayPort.Image Source: eTeknixImage Source: eTeknix

It is likely, though, that this will be one of the last motherboards that Intel produces, since Intel announced that it will be leaving the design and manufacturing of desktop motherboards.

    It's surprising they are not making motherboards anymore soon considering this actually looks good.

    Interesting - when do they plan to stop making them?
    Their boards are nice, just too pricey. Kind of like Asus can be.

    Reminds me of Skulltrail boards.

    I like the blue heatsinks, but the skull is dumb.

    It could use a few more USB ports on the back, even if they're just 2.0s. Other than that, it's a pretty nice looking. The skull is a nice throwback to my current bonetrail x38 board!

    This may be the last LGA generation boards we see from Intel.

    Wow, Go Intel on this new board. I think this is the first board you guys havent really screwed overclockers. I wonder if the bios is unlocked up to ASUS spec or due to you CPU being installed if people will have issues pushing voltages passed recommended settings.
    looking at all the mosfets heatsinks, 8pin P4 connector, post code display and x4 4pin case fan connectors. Real question is does this board support nvidia SLi?

    Intel said they were pulling out of the desktop motherboard business AFTER Haswell.

    Intel will still partner with all-in-one, laptop, embedded, etc. device manufacturers to help produce motherboards for non-standard and compact form factors for Broadwell (next year) and beyond.

    The demand for conventional PCs is shrinking so it seems only natural that Intel would like to redirect design efforts towards more promising markets.

    The skull represents their last hurrah! in MB manufacturing - it's all over after this!

    Intel trying to garner some street cred with a stupid skull. Who the hell is in charge at these companies?

    That board looks pretty darn spiffy, but I'll have to stick with ASUS
