    Is it the management engine that's responsible for the whole coffee lake compatibility thing?
    I.e. could this result in some interesting hacking of chipsets?

    No. It's been in every mainstream Intel chip since around 2008.

    I know that, but isn't it also the element of the system that limits kaby lake chipsets working with coffee lake cpu. Didn't someone from Asus say that if intel updated the management engine, there would be compatibility.

    Yes:
    bit-tech: So if you wanted and Intel let you, you could make Z270 compatible?

    Andrew: Yes, but you also require an upgrade from the ME [Management Engine] and a BIOS update. Intel somehow has locked the compatibility.

    Baking DRM into their backdoor sounds like a typical intel thing to do
