    When it says 2H, it usually means Nov or Dec. Late 2018 is pretty safe assumption.

    Will Z370 also support these alleged 8C/16T Ice Lake CPUs as well?
    I'm assuming they should, if not its one less reason to get what is virtually a Z270 rebrand piggybacking on sales of 6 Core Coffee lake chips which Z270 wont support (despite the similar socket).

    Everything being bandied about is a rumor right now, and all from our own @Eurocom Support member :)

    Mystery solved: Z390 Chipset Will Support Intel 8-Core Processors
    http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/my...set-will-support-intel-8-core-processors.html

    "Recently we posted a slide demonstrating the Z370 Platform transition chipset for Coffee Lake. Interestingly enough that slide revealed a Z390 chipset which was listed on there. As it turns out, Intel is to release yet another chipset this year, to support 8-core processors.

    That fact is also indicative that the Z370 chipset isn't enough, and not capable of supporting the unannounced 8-core part. It's messy with Intel chipsets alright. The news was spotted at the NotebookReview who posted a bit from eurocom stating the obvious. The Eurocom employee claims that Z390 is supported by eight core and sixteen threads processors and would be released in the second half of 2018"

    So according to this the z370 is a lame duck out of the gate, with only the 6 core Coffee Lake #1 series of CPU's supported - no 7xxx CPU's either, just the 87xx CPU(s?).

    The z390 info from Intel says "real high performance" 6c Coffee Lake #2 release, no 8c / 16t mentioned, so IDK what to think.

    Before this it was said the Ice Lake 9th generation would have a new socket and therefore a new 10nm motherboard chipset, so, who knows? :)

    dont need to spectulate so much. intel has changed so many of their traditional routine for last 7-10yrs its messing everything up, this include both chipset and socket.

    just to show they do have the capability if they really wanted to do anything, but chooses not to and m!lk the consumer.

    Actually if you read it, he's just reiterating the last statement by Intel made before the delayed production leak.

    So we really still don't know for sure if it's coming soon or much later.

    It looks like some believes Intel will be screwed by AMD, once again. Oh’well. One mistake doesn’t mean you will do it again and again. Some will always learn of their mistake/blunders.

    So will these boards that support CFL1 support CFL2 or will Z390 boards be completely different?
