We have yet to see the mainstream Intel motherboards come out but with the mainstream CPUs already going on sale, it is a matter of time before these motherboards hare announced. These upcoming motherboards will support the mid-range and entry-level Intel Coffee Lake chips.
While these motherboards have not been officially announced retailers have reported that these motherboards will be coming out next month. Here we have some models of the H370, B360, H310 chipsets that you can expect to see from different partners.
Mainstream Intel Motherboards: H370, B360, H310
There were only a few chips released when Intel Coffee Lake was first announced but now there are more variants and more options for people to look into. While the 8100 is the best value for money when you consider the price per core, the 8500 is a great option as well because you are getting more cores and more threads for the money as compared to the i3.
