Intel unveils the specifications of the new Z390 chipset

Wireless connectivity, Bluetooth 5.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 2.Z390 chipset

The Z390 chipset has been an open secret for almost a year, long before the launch of Coffee Lake and the Z370 chipset. Now Intel has officially published the specifications of its new chipset for high-end motherboards. The first thing that stands out is that Intel has added several serial features that prevent the assemblers have to resort to third-party modules. The main changes are the integration of Wireless-AC, Bluetooth 5.0 and USB 3.1-second generation. The same PCIe configuration and RAM compatibility as the Z370 chipset are maintained. From what we see, the Z390 is a feature improvement over the previous Z370.

Apart from making the specifications of the new chipset official, Intel has not said anything about the possibility of a new eight-core Coffee Lake processor, but what is expected is that the launch of the Z390 will be during the next Computex. It does not make much sense to present a new family of motherboards without a new processor so it would be logical for blue to give clues about it in the future. In addition, as we said above, the new chipset maintains the same characteristics as its predecessor, including the overclock. The logical thing would be to present new processors to accompany it.
