Asus Strix Z270G Gaming review – it's not Gene

Intel released their new CPU family, namely Kaby Lake, and there is a new chipset series for it that includes: Z270, H270 and B250. Today I am going to review Asus Strix Z270G Gaming motherboard, an interesting breed, I can say. Together with its ATX version, Z270F, they bring Strix into LGA1151 family, after X99 opened the series last year. 

Until now, the ROG micro-ATX format was reserved to Gene, so the obvious question is if Strix Z270G is the replacement for Gene, or it is just a cheaper mATX solution, and Asus tries to offer budget ROG motherboards. Let's find out together.
