Nice price for a new (kind of) chipset. Z series is the best for price/performance. Still rocking a z170 myself, but this looks tempting.

.....thanks OP......but I'll have to admit, I'm having a hard time justifying the price of the Z370 MB's with Coffee Lake, when the limited reviews so far don't really show it being that much of a gain over 7th gen series and even earlier........ *sigh*......

Thinking about upgrades....but just not sure this is going to be worth it......

Yeah, the same performance comparing to the previous cpus. But now they offer +2 cores for free which is great

I just read the gains were 25 to 35 percent over. Bigger gains then usual. And you have 6 cores on their top 2 now.

in games 7700=8700, no gain at all. Rendering or other computing, yes 20-30% because of two extra cores for the same price

The part that really pisses me off, besides not making the prior motherboards compatible even though they were developing this chipset BEFORE the last motherboard, is requiring us to toss our DDR3 DRAM and replace it with new, overpriced DDR4.

Curious, I'm not sure where you read that.... I've been perusing Anandtech, Tom's and others. Also, despite CPU's being multi-core for years now (I am still using my 7yr old AMD Thuban!), I still feel that software, games, and OS's do not even come close to actually making good use of the extra cores - mostly just eye candy for the average user.

Single-core performance still seems like the single-most important factor for a majority of users (of course excluding those using specialized software that can fully make use of multiple cores (e.g. compiling, encoding, etc....)

came out like 2 days ago. Im surprised its even that. give it a month or so then we shall see
frankly if this was the Gaming 5 I would have probably jumped. But this gaming 7 seems like a few useless added features for $50 more yet missing the wifi ac that the gaming 5 has.

I'm also unhappy about having to upgrade to DDR4, but to be fair DDR3 went out with Z97, I think.

I keep wanting to upgrade from my Sandy Bridge/Z77 system, but I can't find a compelling reason to drop ~600+ on CPU/Mobo/RAM for maybe a 50 percent performance gain.
