We've updated a lot of our hardware to match recent testing with other platforms since we looked at Intel's mainstream Kaby Lake CPUs earlier this year. We now use a GeForce GTX 1080 as our test GPU along with 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RGB 3,000MHz RAM and a Fractal Design Celcius 24 AIO liquid cooler.
2018 looks set for more CPU battles with AMD refining its Ryzen CPUs and Zen core and Intel posed to release low-end chipsets and eight-core mainstream CPUs.
Can MSI topple Gigabyte's excellent Z370N-WiFi in the mini-ITX stakes with the latest incarnation of its dinky Pro Carbon AC board
Gigabyte has the second cheapest Z370 mini-ITX board, but the Z370N-WiFi doesn't skimp on features.
Intel has more powerful CPUs than ever, but are the blurred lines between mainstream and high-end desktop too fuzzy and making some models pointless?
Can Gigabyte's £170 Aorus Ultra Gaming strike a good balance between price and features for Coffee Lake owners?
£1,000 your budget for a full system? PC Specialist has a Z370-based, GTX 1060-touting rig that may be of interest.
Client Computing still its bread and butter, though.
Intel doubled its Core i3 core counts, and the Core i3-8350K costs just £160, but is it still a bargain compared to AMD's Ryzen 5 quad-cores?
We dig a little deeper on the recent Z370 launch with Andrew Wu, ROG Motherboard PM at Asus.
This prebuilt system has a 4.8GHz Core i7-8700K and a GTX 1070 for £1,700.
It might not have Wi-Fi, but Gigabyte's Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 has pretty much everything else as well as a gorgeous lighting display.
The CPU market has never had a year like 2017, and it all comes down to Ryzen.
Coffee Lake and Z370 are the hot topics right now; can this system put them to effective use?
Asus' latest ROG Strix board offers dual M.2 ports, a large M.2 heatsink, RGB lighting, and Wi-Fi.
This £2,400 system means business with its 4.8GHz Core i7-8700K, GTX 1080 Ti, and 500GB NVMe SSD.
Our first Z370 board review is a beast; MSI pulls out all the stops with the Godlike Gaming
AMD and Intel's flagships are now available, and the world has seen the numbers. Who has come off best?
Intel reclaims the performance crown as the maker of the fastest desktop CPU that sports 18 cores, but at what cost?
Including its 'best gaming processor ever'.
Where does Intel's HEDT Skylake-X hex-core fit in amongst an increasingly crowded desktop CPU market?
If six-core Intel CPUs do appear in 2017, what impact will this have on AMD and the CPU market as a whole?
