Improved and better overclocking with 8th-gen ‘Coffeelake-S’ Processors

Intel has included some great OC technology in the new 8000-series processors, with per-core overclocking, up to 8400MT/s, Features XMP 2.0 for memory tuning as well.

All of the chips will use LGA 1151 socket, but definitely you need a new motherboard because  the power delivery on Z370 had to be upgraded for 6 cores with the Memory routing support for DDR4-2666.There will be no B360/H270 motherboards coming this year.
