    And before anyone complains that the block diagram is too small, it's just there to look pretty; click through to the product brief and you'll find a nice readable version on the last page.

    Be very interesting to see how many adopters this platform gets - with the 8700K already offering more core/threads than most people need, plus plenty of Ghz, there doesn't seem to be much gap between that and X299 already.

    What kind of lifespan will this have?...I mean, coming in late 2018, it's possible this socket will be dead within a year unless Intel delay their new CPU's in to 2020.

    It would be highly unusual for Intel to keep backwards compatibility with the follow up to Coffee Lake,

    For the last decade, Intel have kept the the same cadence with their consumer CPUs: two generations of CPUs and two generations of chipsets before switching socket compatibility. Intel are only on the first gen of chipset and socket, so expect 400 series chipsets to accompany the Coffee Lake successor on the same socket, with cross-compatibility (i.e. Coffee-lake successor on 300 series and Coffee Lake on 400 series).

    Marvellous! Another new chipset that will soon be obsolete.
