All new best companion for the Intel® Core™ i7-8700K 6 core processor
Buying guide for the Intel 8th Generation Gaming Motherboard – MSI Z370 GAMING Series Motherboard
eSports is the essential driving force behind the development of the PC industry these days. Under the booming growth of the gaming industry, motherboards that are specifically designed for gaming have become the hottest products at the moment. Needless to say, other than motherboards, CPU is also one of the most important components when it comes to building a gaming PC. The computing power of the processor will have a more crucial impact on your FPS (Frames per Second); the one thing that can really unlock its potential is none other than a gaming motherboard with comprehensive features, powerful performance, and high stability.
From the point of view of the development history of processors, there is almost always one or two new processors entering the market each year; this brings even more powerful computing performance and further boosts gaming performance for the computer users. Therefore, many gamers often upgrade their computers or build new computers when the new processor products are launched.
As for this year (2017), it could be said that this is the most lively period of time in recent years. Aside from launching the seventh generation Kaby Lake-S series processors in the beginning of year, Intel, the world-renowned processor manufacturer, has also launched the eighth generation Coffee lake-S processors, increasing the number of computing cores from 4 for the seventh generation processors (Core i7-7700K) to the 6 core design (Core i7-8700K), which greatly improved performance; it is believed that this has sparked interest from many gamers.
However, we would like to remind gamers that although the Coffee lake-S still adopts the LGA 1151 socket pin design, but under the restriction of BIOS and Intel ME, it is not compatible with motherboards that have adopted the 200 or 100 series chipset design, and is required to be matched with the all new Z370 or the 300 series chipset (to be launched later) in order to function properly. Therefore, if you are planning to build an even more powerful gaming PC, then your best choice will be having the combination of the Intel® Core™ i7-8700K ‘s 6 cores/ 12 threads and the Z370 motherboard
