ASUS PRIME Z270-P Kabylake Motherboard Works Fine On Linux
To no surprise, ASUS just lists Windows 7/8.1/10 as the supported operating systems for this motherboard. But I've had no problems loading various Linux distributions onto the system. Among the tests I've run to date with the ASUS PRIME Z270-P include:
And several other articles, along with more results on the way. Fedora 25, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10, openSUSE Tumbleweed, Intel Clear Linux, and Debian Stretch have been among the Linux distributions I tested with the PRIME Z270-P system so far. Assuming you are on one of those distributions or another one with a recent Linux kernel release and ideally the latest Mesa, you should be in good shape for support, at least as far as all core functionality is concerned.
So far I'm happy with the ASUS PRIME Z270-P purchase and it's been running great and working well for a ~$130 USD investment. Coming up in the next week on Phoronix though will be more Z270 Linux motherboard reviews for those curious about other first-hand motherboard encounters under Linux. If you're looking to learn more about the ASUS Z270-P stop by NewEgg or Amazon.
