    MSI web genies has made a boo-boo and posted that "MSI Z370 Motherboards are Optimized for Intel 9000 Processors." Well as far as I know Intel 9000 processors are still unannounced. So either Intel forgot to launch them or MSI jumped the gun. :D Thanks PCWorld.

    MSI, the world leading gaming motherboard manufacturer, is pleased to announce new BIOS updates for MSI Z370 motherboards to support Intel 9000 processors. The new BIOS updates are all fully optimized for Intel 9000 processors. Updated BIOS versions for MSI Z370 motherboards are shown as below. Make sure to download the Z370 motherboard updated BIOS version for Intel 9000 processors optimization.

    Only if you plan to run the lower core count chips. As the guy that did run a quad-core Coffeelake on a Kabylake mobo...

    yeah seems way to fishy that all of a sudden this stuff is "leaking" right before TR2 is suppose to launch..
