Intel’s next-generation desktop chipset will support technologies such as Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and USB 3.1 Gen2.

These are the Z300 line-up chipsets which will be released in 2018 for the eighth-generation Intel ‘Coffee Lake’ processors. Later this year, the Intel Z370 chipset will be released without built-in Wi-Fi and USB 3.1 support for the Coffee Lake Refresh processors.

Allegedly Intel has changed its plans and will launch the Coffee Lake Refresh and chipsets for them because of the appearance of the Ryzen processors that gave AMD a competitive advantage.

Aside from the few new features, the rumored 300-series chipsets look to be pretty similar to existing 200-series. That means they include connectivity for up to 24 lanes of PCIe 3.0, up to 10 USB 3.0 ports, and six 6Gbps SATA ports.

From the next year Intel will begin to offer chipsets with integrated Wi-Fi and USB 3.1 support, and these will be the Z390 and H370 solutions. They will also work with eight-generation Coffee Lake processors.
