With the launch of Intel's 8th Generation desktop processors last week and the need for a new chipset (Intel Z370) we have a slew of new motherboards on the block.

Today we are taking a look a the new ASUS Prime Z370-A Motherboard. This ATX motherboard has great features including dual M.2 slots, USB 3.1 Gen 2, 2-way SLI and 3-way CrossFire support, and even some cool RGB LEDs. You are going to get all of this for $174.99. Add an affordable "Coffee Lake" processor and you have the makings of a pretty awesome system. Let's dive in and see what this motherboard is all about.

Intel Core i7-8700K Processor Review

When AMD launched their Ryzen processors back in March things were a little shaky at first with stability and memory issues, which we talked about in our review of the Ryzen 7 1700X. Over time many of those problems were solved with micro-code and BIOS updates and Ryzen proved to be a real contender in the CPU market, even <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/amd-cpu-sales-overtake-intel-for-the-first-time-in-over-a-decade/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">out-selling Intel parts</a> at some major retailers. Needless to say AMD really shook up the Desktop CPU market with their Ryzen processor, offering an alternative to Intel's Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 CPUs. This is the first time in a while we've seen real competition in the CPU market, and we definitely like it! Today Intel is officially launching their 8th Generation Core desktop processors with the Core i7-8700K leading the pack. These processors are Intel's first real response to Ryzen, and we finally have a core-count increase on a mainstream desktop processor! That is right, the Core i7-8700K is a 6-core, 12-thread part! It has a base-clock of 3.7 GHz, boosts up to 4.7 GHz, and being a "K" series processor it is fully unlocked. Let's dive into the new 8th Generation Core Series and see how stacks up against AMD's Ryzen Processors.
