The Intel 9th generation 'Coffee Lake-S Refresh' CPUs are expected to debut this September and Intel's partners have started readying their motherboards for the impending launch. Asus is apparently readying no less than 19 boards based on the Z390 chipset with the Maximus XI touted to be the flagship series of boards. These boards include —

Maximus XI

  • ROG MAXIMUS XI APEX
  • ROG MAXIMUS XI CODE
  • ROG MAXIMUS XI EXTREME
  • ROG MAXIMUS XI FORMULA
  • ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO
  • ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI)

Z390 Strix

  • ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING
  • ROG STRIX Z390-F GAMING
  • ROG STRIX Z390-H GAMING
  • ROG STRIX Z390-I GAMING

Z390 Prime

  • PRIME Z390-A
  • PRIME Z390M-PLUS
  • PRIME Z390-P

Z390 TUF

  • TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING
  • TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING (WI-FI)
  • TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING
  • TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING (WI-FI)
  • TUF Z390-PRO GAMING

Z390 Dragon

  • Z390-DRAGON (Restricted to China)

The above list comes courtesy of an Asus support site detailing a new user profile function in the BIOS. While we've reported that the entry-level H310 chipset can support the new 9th generation 'Coffee Lake-S Refresh' CPUs, they are no doubt paired best with the Z390 chipset-based. For those not in the know, the Z390 is a rebadged Z370 chipset that continues to be based on the 22nm process. The Z390 was originally meant to be a 14nm part with integrated USB 3.1 Gen2 host controllers and onboard 802.11ac Wi-Fi but Intel's delays with 10nm and the need to ramp up production of 14nm CPUs meant that the 14nm transition in the Z300-series has been pushed to a later date.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
