Distributor shows
A German distributor has put slides online that shows the alleged upcoming introductions of AMD and Intel. It includes a Z490 chipset from AMD. In addition, there will be an Intel Z390 chipset, for which an octacore cpu will be released by the end of this year.

According to the slides AMD arrives in June with the Z490 chipset for motherboards with AM4 socket. What this new chipset brings compared to the current X470 chipset is not yet clear. In any case, it is a higher positioned chipset. Cheaper motherboards with the B450 chipset would appear in July.

Intel’s Z390 chipset, according to the roadmap in the third quarter of this year, and in the fourth quarter an octacoreprocessor of the Coffee Lake generation available. The first samples of these CPUs are ready in June according to the slides. The Z390 chipset comes on motherboards with the same lga1151 socket as the Z370 chipset. Whether the upcoming Intel octacores only work with Z390 motherboards, or can also be used in Z370 boards, is not yet clear.

The arrival of the Intel Z390 chipset and an octacore processor with socket lga1151 have been rumored for a long time and their arrival has already been confirmed in documents from Intel.

Furthermore, the slides show the arrival of a second generation AMD Threadripper processors in August and a refresh of the corresponding X399 motherboards. That AMD with new cpus for high-end desktops is known. AMD has previously indicated that they will be released in the second half of this year.

The slides were discovered by AnandTech . They were part of a thirty-minute webinar that was put on YouTube by a German distributor. The video has been removed by the company, just like the page where the video was on . You can still see that via Google’s cache.
