Good news, it looks like you won't need an expensive motherboard to run Intel's upcoming eight-core desktop CPUs. VideoCardz reports new ASRock H310 based motherboards feature stickers that indicate these boards have eight-core CPU support.

Previously, it was rumored you might need the Z390 for Intel's eight-core chips, but this rumor turns out to be false.
The support will likely come in a BIOS update, which should eventually roll out to all 300 series motherboards.

Intell allegedly has two 8-core CPUs coming with 9th Gen series: the Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K. It is quite possible that more octa-core parts will be unveiled in the future.
