There are no changes to the number of PCIe lanes or memory support. There is, however, a change to USB 3.1 support. The Z390 supports Gen2 while Z370 only Gen1. The appearance of Z390 on Intel website could further confirm that the launch is close, maybe even sooner than we thought. It might be worth watching Intel’s CEO keynote at Computex.
