Intel’s own 8-series “Lynx Point” Desktop Boards publicly sighted (B85, H87, Q87, Z87)

At IDF Beijing, we snagged an exclusive shot of Intel's own upcoming flagship DZ87KLT-75K, an enthusiast grade motherboard with Thunderbolt connectivity for the upcoming 4th Generation Core "Haswell" processors. While browsing through chipzilla's own support download portal for drivers, we came across the other 8-series Lynx Point boards that will presumably be launching alongside the flagship offering.
