ASRock confirms that Coffee Lake will not be supported by existing Intel motherboards

"No, Coffee Lake CPU is not compatible with 200 series motherboards."



Read more on ASRock's confirmation that Coffee Lake will require a new generation of motherboards.

With Coffee Lake being rumoured to release before the end of 2017, it looks like Intel's current generation 200-series/Kaky Lake platform will be released and replaced within a year, a move that will no doubt annoy Intel fans.
^ This right here. Nothing more but a real d*ck move by Intel really.

I got a Z170 Extreme 7+ for longevity

Well, when my 6700K will be aging, I'll definitely go for AMD CPUs.

I'm guessing this was the bomb Tom was going to drop.

Nothing new here, already been preaching this since the beginning. Oh well, fine by me.

after a decade of "intel only" i changed my mainsytem to a RYZEN.

i earn money with my computers so stability is most important for me.
beside my main job i do freelance works as designer and 3d viz for architects.

i was very concerned about RYZENS stability and possible issues with windows etc.

but i was thinking i use it for a month or two as a second system and see how it behaves.

but after 3 weeks i moved all data from my old mainsytem to the RYZEN system.

what can i say... i have no major issues, windows runs fine, stability is great.
knock on wood... im very happy with this AMD system.

i thought i may get a coffee lake 6 core for my Z270 board.
but this is typical intel. only thing is.... now i have an alternative.

so i guess system after system i will upgrade my PC´s to AMD RYZEN.
a threadripper is already planned for christmas.

One of the main reasons I switched over to Ryzen, AMD are supporting the AM4 socket until 2020 so we can rest assured Zen+ and Zen2 will be sable to be dropped into existing AM4 mobos.

Yeah it was a slightly bumpy start but Ryzen is pretty much sorted now. Hynix A-die up to 3000, Samsung B-die 3200+ and you should be BSOD free
