Intel talked about all the new market trends they anticipate making a huge impact on the desktop PC market, and the one that stands out as huge is gaming. They even brought in professional gamers to explain to us the impact and growth of the e-sports market they have witnessed first-hand.

Let's pause for a second and get the new Z390 chipset out of the way. The new Z390 chipset is an addition to the 300-series chipset line up and all 8th and 9th generation CPUs are compatible with all 300-series motherboards (some might need a BIOS update) at the moment. The new chipset offers up a lot of new 10Gb/s USB 3.1 as well as an integrated MAC for WIFI that can go over a Gbit in speed. It also integrates an improved audio processor.
