Well as usual, I'm sure they kill the old socket to sell new ones, clever engineering indeed.

Yeah, but you're a PC enthusiast. Most users wouldn't even know about the ability to update past Z290 let alone how to actually pull it off.

I have a similar motherboard but thought I was stuck to gen 6 and 7 Intel CPUs. What did you have to do to get that CPU to work? Because... I'm interested

I miss $250 GPUs that could still play everything.

Same, Asus even confirmed that it would work with a bios update.

Quote:
Then the big question: "so if you wanted and Intel let you, you could make Z270 compatible", to which Wu replied: "Yes, but you also require an upgrade from the ME (Management Engine) and a BIOS update. Intel somehow has locked the compatibility". There you have it folks, Intel is locking users out of upgrading to Coffee Lake on their current Z270 boards, by forcing users to buy a Z370 motherboard.
