So... What About Them B360s and H370s?

Same can be asked about the entry-point CPUs, like Celeron and Pentium.

They have shown up several places for pre-order, looks like Intel is holding them back to spoil AMD's Gen 2 launch since that will only be higher end products.

Glad to know there's something.

Yeah, perhaps Intel ships those new boards the same date as AMD will do with their new Ryzen 2000 series CPUs.

That makes sens. It's called competition.

More Intel CPUs will flood the market...

...and the new Ryzen processors are also almost here.

So, which one will it be for you? lol

I guess it's fair to say. I just thought they could've released their CPUs and Motherboards at the same time they released their i3, i5, and i7 series, along with the Z-Motherboards.

NONE, hehehe. I'm actually waiting for Intel's 8C/16T mainstream i7.

Yeah, obviously Intel did cheat a little on that matter.

I guess, as Z370 prices where on the high side, if they released the lower end chip-sets with the lower end CPUs the same time, most people would prefer the least expensive way.

So, going with an H370, B360 or even with an H310 board and the non OC-able CPUs.

i3-8100, i3-8300, i5-8400, i5-8500, i5-8600, i7-8700.

And Intel would lose money from the high end chip-set configurations.

I'm actually waiting for Intel's 8C/16T mainstream i7.

Some "lower-end" boards from ASRock and some with the Z390 chip-set as well.
