    Still limiting PCI-E lanes then? Bleh. Definitely going TR for my next build.

    Yep that's Intel alright though it has to be said that the 8 core if still on their ring-bus architecture, could kick some serious butt, but yes it will be crazy expensive as well.

    On the other hand Zen 2 should be able to compete very well against it. being on 7nm and all.

    They couldn't have put better VRMs two chipset generations ago could they? Oh wait, no they couldn't because then they would have lost money for their mobo partners.

    They're selling Xeon W if you're looking for a workstation build. This isn't for that market

    I'd say this is less of a rebrand than Z370, that was just a 200 series chipset with a bit of extra power circuitry, at least with this they've added USB 3.1 gen 2, Z370 only got released because (IMO) they were responding to AMD.

    Rebrand? Intel? Makes sense.

    Re: Intel Z390 chipset expected to be a Z370 rebrand

    I don't understand the PCIe lanes claim. Are those 24 lanes on the chipset in addition to the direct lanes off the CPU for the graphics or is it 24 total including those?

    AFAIK yes they're in addition to the 16 direct lanes of the CPU, having said that those extra 24 lanes would be bandwidth limited due to the DMI 3.0 ×4 link they route through, it's restricted to 4 GB/s so anything much more than a PCIe 3.0 x4 device could saturate the DMI bus.

    not so far as I can tell. The diagram says 2 cards at 8x. Though is the whole SLI/Crossfire thing still popular these days? I've noticed fewer in-depth reviews devoted to it compared to say 5 years ago.
