3DMARK result confirms that Intel's Z390 chipset works with Coffee Lake S processors

Will Z370 support Intel's rumoured 8-core processors?



Special Thanks to TheF34rChannel for the info.

Read more about Intel's new Z390 series chipset and their Coffee Lake-S compatibility.

That makes it sound, to me at least, that they are replacing Z370 with Z390. And thus Z370 will become EOL rather quickly.

we could be lucky that z470 will be compatible. That means Intels next change is 2019 with products coming in Q3 or Q4 = Close to AMD's 2020 for AM4 change.

If Z390 supports chips from Z370 then Z370 should support Z390 chips, But this is Intel, King of anti consumer practise next to Nvidia, Z370 won't .

OK let me put it this way. If the new 8 core works in Z370 boards then 1. Intel will sell no 390s to existing users and 2. 370s will probably drop in price, meaning they sell even less 390s.

Intel change chipsets to make more money, not to do us all a favour. I'm still not totally counting it out but I can say fairly surely that 370 boards will not work with the new top end CPU. Why? because 30 years of seeing them do otherwise why.

so this is basically a new way for them to get users on Z370 to buy a Z390 board?

Throw in a few new features and gullible ones might think "ooh its an upgrade and still uses my CPU"

Then they release a new CPU so same users upgrade to the latest. In other words, instead of releasing a new mobo chipset and cpu together, they staggered it. I see no change in their greed/practises really.

That's a lot of assumptions I feel. They didn't stagger it. This is the original CFL chipset which wasn't ready when they needed to rush out CFL.
