Asus has released the specs for the Maximus VIII Hero Alpha: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-VIII-HERO-ALPHA/



This is hands-down the best Z170 board you can get. They utilize all three Intel Rapid Storage Technology PCI-e 3.0 x4 connections (two U.2, one M.2), support Thunderbolt 3 in a USB Type-C connector, and have MU-MIMO Wi-Fi. I consider this board to be superior to Maximus VIII Extreme and any of the other top-of-the-line boards out there. Now, if they'd only do something like this in Mini-ITX for the 200-series chips with the Kaby Lake processors next year...
