Motherboard manufacturers hint at Next-Gen release on October 8th 

It looks like motherboard markers a preparing to release next-generation motherboards, with ASUS’ ROG sub-brand and Gigabyte’s Aorus division hinting at a launch or reveal on October 8th. 

ASUS has showcased what appears to be a next-generation Hero series motherboard, with the CPU socket conveniently covered by the company’s new Ryujin CPU cooler. Gigabyte Aorus, has released a short video clip which asks “What it takes for All Cores 5GHz?”, while listing the date October 8th. 

With 5GHz overclocks it seems extremely likely that both manufacturers are hinting at the launch of a new Intel motherboard platform, with 5GHz overclocks being reasonably achievable on today’s Coffee Lake processors. Could this be Intel’s long rumoured Z390 motherboard platform, which will house the company’s latest 8-core 9000-series Coffee Lake processors?

These hints point towards the release of new Intel motherboards and processors in October. Will all of those i7-9700K and i9-9900K rumours prove accurate? We won’t have to wait long to find out.
