    Re: ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    That seems like a dumb move on Intel's part. I feel like plenty of people would've been happy just upgrading to an 8700K but now they're going to just go Ryzen for their next build as they'll get the extra cores for cheaper after the motherboard is taken into consideration.

    I am hoping beyond hope this is fake news, I was hoping to drop a 8700k into my current Z170.

    <sigh>

    ryzen / threadripper it is (but not yet, probably).

    Re: ASRock confirms Coffee Lake CPUs need new motherboards

    The most frustrating part about this to me isn't that Z170 / Z270 boards won't work, but that Intel didn't at least seperate the name of the socket somehow, even if they just added a totally redundant pin and called it LGA1152 I'd have been more OK with it. Now newbies or people who built a system a while ago and didn't keep up might end up buying CPUs they can physically install but don't work at all and end up in a financial hole buying a new board, too. Hope resellers can make it clear what is what.
