ASUS on Tuesday released new BIOS versions for Intel’s 300-series motherboards, adding support for Intel’s not-so-secret upcoming Core i3/i5/i7 9000-series processors. With the addition of ASUS, now all of the "Big 3" motherboard manufacturers have publicly added support for Intel’s future CPUs to their existing platforms.

At present, 64 motherboards from ASUS based on Intel’s Z370, H370, Q370, B360, and H310 chipsets support the forthcoming Intel’s 9th Gen Core i processors. This is the longest list of mainboards that already support the future CPUs among all top makers of motherboards. All the aforementioned motherboards also work with Intel’s Coffee Lake CPUs with up to six cores that use LGA1151 v2 packaging.

Intel’s 9th Gen Core processors are projected to be announced in the coming weeks and hit the market shortly after that. Intel has not formally confirmed the chips, but it is expected that the new CPUs will use Intel’s Coffee Lake/Kaby Lake microarchitecture, will have up to eight cores, and will be produced using a 14 nm process technology.

    Does it matter, considering we probably won't see a substantial supply of them until shortly before Christmas? Reply

    Hehe, actually (though!), for me - at least - it matters, like, a lot: since ASUS had opened a new (!) factory in the Czech Republic; which means it would be possible to ship wholesale by train, to Belgrade, Serbia. Pretty awesome!! :)) Reply

    64 motherboards! Asus, try to narrow down the amount of motherboards and focus on quality. You are wasting money and people's time. Reminds me of HP releasing 100 printers at $5- $10 intervals. Stop that and just make a few good one's. Reply

    ^^ That's what they're all (!) doing. As if on purpose: one motherboard is, like, an antenna short - and another one has got *no* USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectors, at all... Completely POINTLESS. Reply
