ASRock has stated on Twitter that Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake series of CPUs will not be supported by Intel's current generation 200-series motherboards, laying to rest rumours that Kaby-Lake users will have a seamless upgrade option. 
 
Until now leaks for Coffee Lake have suggested that an LGA 1151 socket would be used, the same socket that Intel uses for Skylake and Kaby Lake on desktop platforms. Now it seems that new motherboards and perhaps a new socket will be required to support Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake CPUs.

With Coffee Lake being rumoured to release before the end of 2017, it looks like Intel's current generation 200-series/Kaky Lake platform will be released and replaced within a year, a move that will no doubt annoy Intel fans.
