Biostar Racing Z270GT9 Motherboard Review

The Biostar Racing Z270GT9 motherboard is the subject of this review at Tom's Hardware today. Don't be fooled by all those PCI-E slots, the board is not SLI / Crossfire capable. 😞

With a specifications sheet that reads like a geek’s wish list, Biostar’s Z270GT9 should be selling like hotcakes by now. Perhaps the reason we’re not hearing more from readers about this board is that many haven’t realized yet that the $330 version has a factory-installed 256GB Intel 600p M.2 SSD? Perhaps it’s because the $240 version (without SSD) never came to market? And if we simply subtract the price of the SSD from the price of the board, we’re left with a motherboard that costs less than its onboard 10Gb/s Ethernet solution. What a deal, right?
