    I can't see how any Z170 board would be worth updating to Z270 if there is an expectation if improved performance or useful features.

    There are however reasons to update:

    1) You enjoy taking apart a system and rebuilding with newer components.
    2) You like the look of a particular new board.
    3) You think a 32GB Intel Optane drive might the answer to your prayers.
    4) You have or want two M.2 drives and want to put them in a R0 for benchmarking (though unrealistic) excitement.

    For the record, I am saddened that no one enjoyed the humor of my 2nd post.

    What the hell ASUS?! Where is the Maximus IX Impact?

    Some might wonder just why anyone with an VIII Impact, would bother with an IX. No M.2, all we got was that useless Intel intermediary storage adapter thing and that's it; no one else, except for intel, supported that adapter in a plug and play-type product. I think, in fact, I know that ASUS need to give us an IX Impact and not repeat that mistake.

    Another thing. Why is it that, when Impact is concerned, it gets the shaft as far as priority goes? Why not treat it like the ROG product that it is and have it shining bright alongside the Extreme, the Hero, and all the other 'Justice League' members at CES?

    I am, mysharona, and I do own a Maximus VIII Impact and it's a fantastic little machine. I want a IX, please.

    Yes! A modest, thoughtful, and measured reaction that perfectly condenses a complex set of feelings into a simple physical action. I consider this a success.
