Intel Coffee Lake cannot be used with motherboards based on the latest Intel 200
About the Intel generation Coffee Lake, we wrote just a couple of days ago. Recall, this will be the 14-nanometer CPU with the same architecture that is used in families Kaby Lake and Skylake. That is, apparently, Intel will break even his new three-step principle of alternation of generations.
But Coffee Lake needs to bring in the desktop consumer segment six-core models Core i7 and even Core i5. However, there is a fly in the ointment. If you believe ASRock, the new CPU can not be used with motherboards based on chipsets Intel 200.
That is, despite the absence of significant (perhaps any) changes in architecture and the third time used a 14-nanometer process technology, the eighth generation of Intel Core will not be able to use the most up-to-date motherboards.
Most likely, Intel did this on purpose to force consumers to buy a new motherboard.
