So that would support that they might work in existing Coffee Lake boards? I suppose they likely have requirements of the Z390 chipset separate from the die size.

I don't have a Coffee Lake system obviously, just curious as to where this 8-core chip might fall in the sequence of chips, and of course if 8-cores worked in the existing boards one could get a used board and new chip, perhaps save little money.
