https://videocardz.com/76275/intel-releases-full-specifications-of-z390-chipsetThe Z370 chipset is commonly considered a rushed product delivering questionable differences over Z270 motherboards. In fact, Flex I/O lane specifications are mirrored for both chipsets. Officially Z370 only support Coffee Lake processors due to differences in the LGA1151 socket. Has Z390 delivered more changes to Intel’s Lake family?
Technically yes, the Z390 has more differences over Z370, starting with USB 3.1 Gen 2 support. The lane specs are different too, but the number of them has not changed.
Intel has not really made any official introduction of the new chipset. We are only finding this by browsing Intel website, which is quite odd. However, this could mean that Computex Z390 showcase might actually happen. The previous embargo date was set to September, but the recent announcement from AMD could have affected those plans.
The following chart is a comparison between Z390 and Z370 lane specs. There was no point in including Z270 here since lanes are the same for Z370.
Please note: in Intel documents 200-series/Z370 lanes start from 0, whereas 300-series/Z390 lanes start from 1.

In honor of that, we revealed the limited edition 8th Gen Intel® CoreTM i7-8086K processor, the first-ever CPU with a 5.0GHz turbo frequency. In celebration of this milestone, and our enthusiasts, we’re giving away 8,086 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8086K processors. Visit www.intel.com/8086sweepstakes for more information on markets and rules.

This could be a multi-stage phase cooler (sub-zero cooling), or possibly a more mundane water chiller, under the table. We also spot more shielding over the long rectangular waterblock and what appears to be six sticks of RAM flanking the processor on each side. That implies this platform is based on the (until now) enterprise-class LGA3647 socket. This means the processor could be a variant of the $8,700 Xeon Platinum Scalable processor we reviewed here, albeit with an unlocked multiplier. (That doesn't bode well for pricing). We'll dig for more details and update as necessary.
https://www.anandtech.com/show/12907/we-got-a-sneak-peak-on-intels-28core-all-you-need-to-knowWorking from data taken from Intel’s current 28-core Xeon processor, the Xeon Platinum 8180, shows that the 8180 at 3.34 GHz can achieve a score of 5040. Doing the math and assuming perfect scaling (which Cinebench does well at) shows that the same processor at 5.0 GHz would score around 7560 points. The difference between that number and the 7334 that Intel scored is within the ballpark, so we are likely looking at an overclocked version of the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180.
