    Phoronix: ASUS PRIME Z270-P Kabylake Motherboard Works Fine On Linux

    For those looking to purchase a newer Intel Z270 motherboard for use with the new Kabylake processors, the ASUS PRIME Z270-P is what I've been using the past two weeks for my initial Kabylake benchmarking. So far it's been working out great and haven't run into any issues.

    Do you known you can take a screenshot in the UEFI setup (F12 key)? My eyes are bleeding.

              Probably the sensors don't work. I have a ASUS sabertooth motherboard, has tons of temp sensors on the board, but you can only read most of them by using the Asus windows only software. They don't work with "sensors" in linux. Everything else works.

                Thanks for doing this write up. I have always heard that Gigabyte is unfriendly with linux.

                  Bluntly that's a load of crap.

                  Gigabyte boards work just fine with Linux and always have, this machine and every other desktop in this house is a testament to that fact. What people got fussy over is that Gigabyte doesn't officially support Linux, and their customer service reps will tell you to run Windows. Thing is though... NONE of the MoBo manufacturers officially supports Linux, so whining about that is just bullshit.

                    No Intel LAN? No deal!

                    S/PDIF or Coaxial digital audio would be nice as well…
