Overview of the MSI B250M Mortar Motherboard

January of 2017 was marked by the emergence of new processors Intel Kaby Lake-S, while the motherboard manufacturers have released products based on fresh 200- series chipsets. The PCH execution identity allows vendors to produce different models based on the earlier designed PCB. MSI B250M Mortar is one of the kind, as the manufacturer has a similar model – MSI Z270M Mortar.


Technical Characteristics



In fact, B250 is the youngest of the latest generation products. The most significant of its innovations is supporting the work of drives with PCI-E interface, mainly implemented in the popular now format M.2. The model is equipped with an expansion slot of this type. Additional adapters are unavailable, so all the possibilities come through Intel B250. The network interface uses the Intel controller, and the sound is formed by Realtek ALC892.


The B250M’s characteristics are as follows:


• Chipset – Intel B250 • Processor socket – Socket 1151 • …
