I'd love to see some gaming motherboard and intel CPUs that have more PCIe lanes. I don't want to spend $1200 on a processor and $500 on a motherboard just to get a fast processor with 40 pcie lanes. I have a 1080ti 16x, 4port 10gb nic 8x and a Broadcom storage controller 8x - where is the love Intel? I'd love to be able to buy a processor like the i7-8700k but have all the PCIe lanes I need for my cards. I'd rather have a 3.5GHz 4 core than a 2.2GHz 16 core. Whatever I get will have to have 2 on board nics and a great onboard sound and wifi (I do a lot of testing and use up a lot of space for slots with my cards). I currently have a z170 g1 gaming but need to build another computer and hate to use 2 or 3 year old tech.
