Mother board for core i3 8100

The new coffe lake 8th generation has been launched. But intel said it wont be working on any mobo other than with z370 chipset. Now thats bad because those mobo are very expensive. So the affordable mobo like ga h110m s2 will not get bios update for 8th gen cpu support. Then it will not no good for budget gaming pc build if mobo goes out of the budget. So i just wanna confirm does other affordable motherboard will get update for 8th gen cpu support or i have to break the bank and buy z370 mobo?

  2. If happy with a 4c/4t design, I'm sure an equivalent speed i5-7300/7400 can be had with a B250 board for much less money, for identical PC and performance at same clockspeeds.

    It wont come anywhere near i3 8100. The coffee lake cpu, despite being and i3 and with 4/4 is much better than the i5 7th gen series. It beats even the budget ryzen 3s and even ryzen 5 1400 if u pair the i3 with the new 3200 mhz ram.
    But if Akmal is looking for a budget, then better either wait or get the ryzen cpus.
    Just my two words on the question :)
