According to the embargo document, Intel would first release the unlocked SKUs, which would eventually be followed by the rest of the 9th-generation family in Q1 2019. In the previous slides, we also saw that compatibility will be retained for 9th-generation processors on current 300-series motherboards along with the new Z390 platform.
