Leaked Intel Chipset Roadmap Confirms Z370 in Q4 2017, Z390 in 2H 2018 – Mainstream H370, Value H310 and Corporate Q370, Q370, B360 Chipsets in Q1 2018

It looks like Intel is prepping a outrageous list of chipsets underneath their 300-series height roadmap. The chipset lineup will embody a already famous Z370 that is rising subsequent month, followed by a operation of fan / mainstream consumer and corporate options that will be accessible after in 2018.

Intel Z370 Chipset Confirmed For Next Month Launch, Z390 Also Headed As Enthusiast Option in 2H 2018 – LGA 1151v2 and Coffee Lake Processor Compatibility Maintained

The Intel 300-series height consists of dual categorical products, a 300-series motherboards and a Coffee Lake desktop processors. The initial launch is directed for Q4 2017 and will embody a operation of Z370 chipset formed motherboards and several Coffee Lake desktop chips. These processors will be a operation of unbarred and sealed SKUs that will embody Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3 branded chips. A new roadmap has now been leaked over during Anandtech Forums that sum a full list of Intel 8th gen, 300 array chipsets.

We have reliable that Intel is rising a 300-series height on 5th Oct 2017. The launch will have an army of Z370 play though for those formulation to build some-more bill tier PCs will have to wait compartment early 2018. The roadmap sum that Intel’s consumer lineup will underline 4 chipsets. The initial is Z370 that falls underneath a fan segment. The mainstream shred includes a H370 chipset while a Value shred includes a H310 chipset.

Intel Kaby Lake Refresh and Cannon Lake PCH Features:

The many engaging thing about a roadmap is that it is a initial open acknowledgment of a Z390 chipset. We have already listened a lot about a Z390 chipset though it looks like it will be replacing a Z370 chipset or will be a some-more improved tuned pattern for high-performance 6 core chips in a Coffee Lake family. For users that are disturbed if there Z370 investment will go to rubbish need not to worry a lot as this chipset won’t be accessible until second half of 2018.

So we are looking during atleast a year value of wait if not more. There’s also a probability that while this chipset allows for some-more facilities over Z370, it might also launch along side a new operation of rested processors (most substantially still on 14nm++ process). Regardless, a Z390 and Z370 chipsets will use a LGA 1151v2 hollow and harmony of Coffee Lake processors will be confirmed on both.

Intel’s Corporate Chipset Lineup Includes Q370, Q360 and B360 For Q1 2018

Moving to Q1 2018, substantially during or after CES 2018, we will see a launch of a corporate chip sets too. These chips and a consumer bill concentration chips are designed for launch in a identical time frame. The chipset lineup will embody a Business Essential B360, Corporate Fundamental Q360 and a Corporate (Intel vPro) Q370 chipset. Some facilities of a 300-series height will include:

  • Increased multi-thread performance
  • Enhanced IA and memory overclocking
  • Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology
  • Better media and encoding technologies
  • 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
  • Support for complicated standby

In terms of I/O, we are looking at:

  • Up To 30 Chipset High Speed IO Lanes
  • 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
  • CPU Attached Intel PCIe Storage

We can also design Intel to launch a Pro array family of CPUs when a corporate chipsets launch and those will be placed directly opposite a Ryzen Pro processors. Expect some-more sum and Z370 motherboard sum in a entrance days.
