If you thought CPU manufacturers are busy, think how much work do motherboard makers really have.
The motherboard chipset naming is probably the funniest part of this year’s CPU launches.
First, we had Intel 200-series then AMD 300 series, Intel X299 series, AMD X399 series and now… Intel 300 series. I guess we finally made a full circle!
Today I have something “exclusive” for you, a list of all upcoming ASRock motherboards based on Z370 chipset. And yes, I mean Z370 only, there are no B350 and H370 motherboards here. But why? Well probably because AMD already ‘borrowed’ this chipset naming for their Ryzen series? Who knows.
Either way, expect following motherboards from ASRock:
- ASRock Z370 Fatal1ty Professional Gaming i7
- ASRock Z370 Fatal1ty Gaming K6
- ASRock Z370 Extreme4
- ASRock Z370 Killer SLI/ac
- ASRock Z370 Pro4
- ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac
- ASRock Z370M Pro4
I guess there are no surprises here, except maybe the ITX motherboard, since those are usually late to the party. There’s no Supercarrier or Taichi here yet, but I will let you know as soon as these are confirmed.
