Pokdepinion: While there will be Z270 motherboards that will launch together with the new Kaby Lake CPUs, there will always be those who choose to keep using their motherboards and just swap out the processor for a newer one. This is a great move from ASUS to allow their clients to get ready for an upgrade so quickly.
