    Okay, it's not exactly a secret anymore that Intel is launching Coffee lake processors with Z370 motherboard top go along with it. However, that's all unofficial. Two days ago ASRock already leaked ...

    Z390 vs Z370?? What is the difference? Do we choose between two unlocked chipsets now?

    Z390? Ok i like new chipsets with new features and have no problem buying the z370 when 8700k releases. But another chipset on the same platform? Guess i will have to buy a cheapy mb on 370 and a beefy on 390.

    Z370 - ATX
    Z390 - ATX + or E-ATX

    Or maybe we are getting new features on the other board, z390 might have the new pcie4.0 that is rumoured to be out soon.

    Beyond that who knows, hard to say what could be on a new board that the other one wouldn't have...

    Intel is running the Retarded train at full speed. Only the dumb consumer wont be able to look past the greed of Intel. And i think Intel is forgetting that now as competition.

    The Z390 isn't supposed to arrive until 2H of 2018 anyway, so a "new" Chipset is more or less expected a year after release anyway. No one's forced to buy anything they make one year after the next! I'm still rocking Z97 and probably will in my Gaming rig until Z390 or whatever comes next anyway.

    Anyone who's on Skylake and Z170 generally doesn't need to upgrade, people on Z97 and older will be looking at these with the most interest.

    Although I will be buying CoffeeLake for my XOC benching rig, but my Gaming system won't get an upgrade until next year at the earliest anyway. Just not sure whats coming after Z390, but at least we're getting 6 cores mainstream from Intel now, doubt it'll be to much longer before they chuck out 8 core mainstream, probably when Zen2 arrives, well as long as they get the IPC and clock frequency improvement on Zen2, not to mention stronger IMC on Zen2 that might force Intel to start going 8 cores for mainstream systems.
