    BIOSTAR confirms Z390 RACING GT3 & GT5 motherboards

    "Now, this is probably one of the biggest embargo-breaking failures in recent history.

    BIOSTAR Z390 RACING GT3
    A manual bundled with B360 Racing series apparently has more information than it’s supposed to have. The cover revealed that the company has Z390 motherboard in the making, in fact, they already have a manual for it.

    This means that either Z390 motherboards are close, or someone was just not paying attention and made a huge mistake which went into print (very unlikely).

    The manual can be downloaded from Biostar website and its content are not really giving us much information about the Z390 chipset itself. It does mention though that B360 chipset does not allow overclocking while Z390 does. The motherboard also supports CPUs up to 95W, which may indirectly confirm the maximum TDP of 8-core Coffee Lake-S CPU.

    Contents of the manual reveal another motherboard, the Z390 Racing GT5:

    i7-8700K Vs. 6 Core X5675 - The Best USED CPU vs The Best New CPU in 2018 (WITH SHOCKER...!)

    Published on Apr 12, 2018
    Lying dormant, being accused of being outdated, this little x5675 Xeon's feelings got hurt to the point where he decided to bust out the 4.5GHz OC on air and stick it to 2018, where the results are surprisingly.... interesting.... especially if you are a competitive gamer.

    Grab a X5675 here: http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/yju3fyR

    Is Hyper-Threading Even Necessary? ZombieLoad Impact Testing (8700k)

    Well Intel has once again found itself at the center of another CPU Flaw/Exploit... this time the only way to completely mitigate the threat on a local level is to turn off Hyper-Threading on its CPUs... so what does that mean for performance loss?? Let's find out!
