Intel Z390 to support existing Coffee Lake S CPUs

Published: May 4th 2018, 08:00 GMT   Comments

We finally have a confirmation of Z390 chipset supporting existing Coffee Lake S CPUs.

SuperMicro Z390

This is the first trace of SuperMicro’s upcoming Z390 motherboard (C9Z390-CG-IW). What is particularly interesting about this leak is the fact that this motherboard was equipped with Core i7-8700T processor, the low-power 6-core CPU already available in stores. Update: we also have a proof of Z390 supporting Core i7-8700K (added below).

This means that Z390 will support both upcoming 8-core and existing 6-core 8th Gen Core CPUs. In other words, the Z390 has the same LGA1151 socket as other 300-series motherboards.

Either way, if we were to speculate about the Z390 platform launch period, we are probably one or two months away, judging from the timing of this leak.
