Will Intel Coffe Lake Support LGA 1151 Sockets?

With all the hype around the current Coffe Lake leaks, I've been thinking about upgrading to one when they cone out later this year. But I'm still confused about if they will support LGA 1151 Sockets or not. I need to know so that I can plan to get a different motherboard ahead of time or if I'm fine with my current LGA 1151 that I have with my i5.

    Existing socket = Yes
    Existing chipsets = No.

    Using the same socket, but it's not going to be as simple as a BIOS update to support it..... at least as per ASRock.

  5. Well, it may not be quite exactly the same socket: when Intel went from LGA2011 to LGA2011v3, the socket keying and the pad layout changed a little. The "LGA1151v2" or whatever Intel ends up officially calling it will probably have slightly different keying and pad layout too despite having the same total electrical contact count.

    Yeah, that jibes with the news/rumors I've seen. And it explains why the screenshots Intel has released of the CPU boxes actually states that they'll require the 300-series chipset to work.
