We are getting oh-so-close to the launch of Intel's 9th generation Core processors, and as that date approaches, motherboard makers appear to be bursting at the seams with excitement. ASRock has come out and formally introduced its Z390 lineup, while ASUS, EVGA, and MSI have all taken to social media to tease their upcoming motherboards. "The leading global motherboard manufacturer, ASRock, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Intel Z390 motherboard series, and also the Phantom Gaming Motherboards, the latest addition to the company's popular Phantom Gaming line up. These versatile new... Read more...
We already knew that MSI was planning on launching more than half a dozen motherboards based on Intel's upcoming Z390 chipset, but we have not seen the full lineup, apparently. Yet another Z390 motherboard has leaked to the web, this latest one being MSI's MEG Z390 ACE, which will sit alongside the company's MEG Z390 Godlike on top of the product stack. MSI is taking aim at enthusiasts and overclockers with its MEG boards. For those who do not want to go all out on the MEG Z390 Godlike for whatever the asking price ends up being, the MEG Z390 ACE will offer similar features but at a presumably... Read more...
We're starting to go cross-eyed looking at the all the Z390 motherboards that have leaked out before officially launching. Our affliction won't stop more leaks from happening, though, a fact that is underscored by a fresh batch of press renderings showing several of Gigabyte's upcoming Aorus-brand Z390 motherboards. The focus this time around is on the Z390 Aorus Master, Z390 Aorus Ultra, Z390 Aorus Pro, and Z390 Aorus Elite. As we have mentioned in the past, Gigabyte is changing up its naming scheme this time around, replacing its Gaming designations with the new terms. It can be a little confusing... Read more...
One thing that has become clear in recent weeks that anyone who is planning on building or upgrading a PC around one of Intel's upcoming 9th generation Core processors will not have a lack of new motherboard options to choose from. We have seen leak after leak of new Z390 motherboards in recent weeks, including a fleshed out lineup from ASUS. As it turns out, though, ASUS has even more Z390 motherboards on tap, than what was previously leaked. Just last week, what looked to be official press renders of nearly a dozen Z390 motherboards from ASUS found their way to the web. Among them were several... Read more...
Intel might as well go ahead and release its 9th generation Core processor lineup right now, because unless it has something up its sleeve that has not already been leaked, there will not be any surprises. This applies to the crop of Z390 motherboards waiting in the wings, too. In the latest batch of leaked images, we see more than half a dozen Z390 motherboard models from MSI, including its MEG Z390 Godlike board. There is no doubt that the Meg Z390 Godlike is a beastly motherboard. While we don't have detailed specs to share, we can see in the press render that it has four reinforced PCI Express...

Intel will be rolling out its 9th generation Core processor family in October, though we can't say for sure exactly when—we've heard both October 1 and October 8 thrown around. Either way, Intel's hardware partners are ready with a whole bunch of new motherboards based on the company's accompanying Z390 Express chipset. Many of the upcoming boards have already been leaked, including a wide range of Z390 motherboards from ASUS. Based on the latest leak, ASUS will have no less than 11 new Z390 motherboards on tap for Intel's 9th generation Core processors. According to fresh batch of leaked... Read more...
If you know where to look, there is much more to find on the Internet than the latest development in the ongoing Machine Gun Kelly versus Eminem dispute. Really, there is. For example, followers of Gigabyte's AORUS Twitter account will have spotted a teaser clip that appears to show off an upcoming motherboard, presumably based on Intel's Z390 chipset. AORUS, as you might already know, is Gigabyte's "premium gaming" brand, just as ASUS maintains a Republic of Gamers (ROG) division for its enthusiast products. Based on some of the leaks we have seen so far, Gigabyte will market and sell Z390 motherboards... Read more...
Is it October yet? No? Well that stinks! It's not that we're trying to speed up time and hasten our brief (in the cosmic sense) stay on this rock, we're just looking forward to Intel finally launching its 9th generation Core processor line, if for no other reason than to stop being flooded with related leaks. Many of them have been in relation to upcoming motherboards based on Intel's Z390 Express chipset. As we head into the homestretch, it would appear that ASRock's entire lineup of Z390 boards has leaked to the web. Just last week, an official-looking press render of ASRock's Z390 Phantom Gaming...

If the rumors and leaks have been accurate, then we're now just weeks away from Intel rolling out its 9th generation Core processor family, otherwise known as Coffee Lake Refresh. The new round of processors is expected to debut in October. There will be new Z390-chipset motherboards as well, several of which have leaked to the web already. Here's a look at yet another one. This time around, it's two of MSI's upcoming MAG and MPG models (one each). Like Gigabyte recently did, MSI is using the Z390 launch as an opportunity to introduce a new naming scheme. At the top of the stack, MSI's MEG models... Read more...
Sometime in the what we believe to be the near future, Intel will finally roll out its 9th generation Core processor family, which is rumored to include two 8-core CPU models. We'll have to wait and see about that. Until then, Intel's hardware partners are gearing up for the launch with supporting hardware. Specifically, Gigabyte is waiting in the wings with multiple new motherboards based on Intel's upcoming Z390 Express chipset. Gigabyte has not announced anything yet, of course, but there are multiple leaked press renders of the company's upcoming motherboards. The newest one depicts a Gigabyte... Read more...
If you build it, they will come. We learned that lesson in Field of Dreams, and it applies to the technology sector too, not just baseball fields out in the middle of nowhere. So what exactly is being built? Intel has put together a new Z390 chipset for its upcoming 9th generation processor launch, and Gigabyte appears ready to roll with at least one Z390 motherboard (more likely several) from its Aorus division. Otherwise known as Coffee Lake Refresh, the upcoming 9th generation Core processor launch is rumored to include up to 8-core CPU options, bringing parity (in core and thread counts) with...

Top tier motherboard makers have started rolling out new products based on AMD's X399 chipset, presumably in anticipation for second-generation Ryzen Threadripper chips that are right around the corner. That includes the beastly slice of silicon with 32 cores and 64 threads that AMD has been teasing since Computex. Starting with ASUS, the company did not announce any new motherboards, but did introduce a cooling kit for its existing ROG Zenith Extreme. The cooling kit consist of a small fan, bracket, SOC heatsink, and set of screws. It is intended to keep vital parts of the motherboard from overheating... Read more...
If past leaks are any indication, Intel is getting ready to launch a handful of 9th generation Core processors, essentially a refresh of Coffee Lake, including one or two 8-core CPUs. To go along with the new chips, Intel is also prepping a Z390 Express chipset. When will it all come out? A newly leaked roadmap points to October as the target. The time frame is outlined in what is purportedly an official Intel slide, posted to a Chinese-language website (HKEPC). We can not say for sure if it is real. Supposing it is legitimate, Intel's 6-core and 8-Core Coffee Lake-S Refresh CPUs and Z390 chipset... Read more...
At long last, AMD's hardware partners have formally introduced a slew of new motherboards based on the company's B450 chipset. Whereas AMD's X470 is aimed at power users and enthusiasts, B450 boards typically target buyers on a budget. Prices vary depending on features, of course, but for the most part B450 motherboards should check in at under $200. The main thing you give up with B450 versus X470 is multiple GPU support (CrossFireX and SLI). Otherwise, B450 and X470 are overall pretty similar—they have the same number of PCIe Gen3 lanes (16 with Ryzen 7 CPUs), both support overclocking,... Read more...
