While most of us are still waiting for Intel’s announcement regarding its upcoming desktop-grade 8th generation Core processors, leaks have now started to surface regarding Z370-based motherboards that will accompany them. To be more specific, folks at VideoCardz have obtained a list containing 15 upcoming Z370 mainboards from Asus.
Intel has, unfortunately, not mentioned a specific date on when it intends to launch the new 8th generation family of processors (Coffee Lake). That said, sources are expecting the launch date to be sometime in October 2017 – which should also be the time when we’ll officially see Z370 motherboards being unveiled.
That aside, Asus’ Z370-based motherboards range from those under the ROG Maximus, ROG Strix, Prime, and TUF families. ROG Maximus motherboards consists of the Maximums X Hero, Maximus X Hero (Wi-Fi AC), ROG Maximus X Apex, Maximus X Code, and Maximus X Formula.
Meanwhile, the more flamboyant ROG Strix series will feature the ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming, ROG Strix Z370-Gaming (Wi-Fi AC), ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming, ROG Strix Z370-H Gaming, ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming, and ROG Stix Z370-E Gaming. Asus’ upcoming Prime series of motherboards include both the Prime Z370-P and Prime Z370-A.
Last but not least, Asus’ “reliable” TUF motherboard series will feature two new motherboards: TUF Z370-Plus Gaming, and TUF Z370-Pro Gaming. Unfortunately, aside from their respective names, specifications, images, and prices of Asus’ upcoming Z370 motherboards were not mentioned.
