Intel Z370 Motherboard Roundup – Featuring Coffee Lake 8th Gen CPU Support, Here’s The Lineup From ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock, MSI and More

Introduction

No CPU launch is finish but a full operation of motherboards and with a arriving Intel 8th era family, manufacturers have prepped adult a vast army of Z370 motherboards that come with a extended accumulation of features.

Being partial of a 300-series chipset family, a Z370 PCH will be a flagship for 2017. There are other SKUs that arrive early in 2018 and even a deputy 2018 chipset that will be famous as a Z390 PCH. There are several manufacturers who will be charity their Z370 PCH play on a launch day including ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA, ECS, Biostar, Supermicro and Maxxsun. So before we demeanour during a motherboards, let’s take a discerning demeanour during what a Z370 PCH has to offer:

Intel Coffee Lake Is Only Supported by The 300-Series Chipset – LGA 1151 On Z370 Offers No Backward Compatibility – Full Platform Details

The Z370 motherboards come with a hollow famous as LGA 1151 and that is a same hollow we have seen on a consumer height given Skylake. But with Coffee Lake, LGA 1151 on Z370 is no longer concordant with comparison CPUs. Even Coffee Lake processors are not back concordant to 100 or 200 array motherboards.

The reason cited by Intel is a change in electrical lanes and energy smoothness that Z370 improves substantially. We did have a word with some motherboard manufacturers and while they exhibit that Coffee Lake might work with comparison motherboards, it won’t broach a same turn of fortitude or clocking as on a Z370 array motherboards.

So with one of a controversies explained, let’s conduct over to a height details. The 8th gen desktop height has a operation of new facilities that especially include:

  • More Cores
  • More Intel Smart Cache
  • Best In Class Design
  • Enhanced Overclocking
  • Improved 14nm Process

And of course, powering a new height is a Z370 PCH. The PCH offers a following:

  • Improved Power Delivery for 6 Core processors
  • Enhanced Package Power Delivery For overclocking
  • Memory routing support for DDR4-2666
  • Rec.2020 HDR Support, HEVC 10-bit HW Decode/Encode, VP9 10-bit HW Decode
  • Integrated USB 3.1 Gen2 (10 Gbps)
  • Support for integrated Intel wireless AC (WiFi 802.11ac R2 Bluetooth 5)
  • Intel Optane memory support
  • Intel Smart Sound Technology with quad core audio DSP
  • 24 Chipset PCIe 3.0 Lanes
  • 10 USB 3.1 Ports With Up To 6 USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) Ports
  • Up To 6 SATA 3.0 Ports
  • Intel Rapid Storage Technology 16
  • PCIe 3.0 x4 Storage Support
