MSI equipped the Z270 MPower Titanium Edition motherboard with a 10+2-phase digital power design
regarding CPU and iGPU. The PWM controller is an uP95080 from UPI Semiconductor and unfortunately reasearching for datasheets didn't let me find addtional information. Going one step further there is an equal number of NIKOS PK616BA and PK632BA N-Channel MOSFETs, while the 616BA can withstand 50A of continuous current at up to 30V and the 632BA can cope with up to 78A at the same voltage. Apart from that there are "Ti" branded inductors and a whole bunch of polymer capacitors taking care of the output filtering stage, with the caps being specced 270uF at 16V. Overall this is a solid power design. Comparing with it's bigger sibling, the MSI Z270 XPower Titanium Gaming, MSI has been saving money at this point and went for a less high-end solution. Nevertheless do not misunderstand me the way that this is not a capable solution.
This board has been equipped with a total of four DIMM-slots. Officially supported is everything up to DDR4 4000 (overclocked). There is engough space between the DIMM-slots and the CPU socket which means that you wont encounter compatibility problems with big coolers even when you choose to install RAM with big heatspreaders. Also supported are Xtreme Memory Profiles (XMP) in version 2.0.
