Its Intel as we expected. Milk every socket you can, as long as people keep buying. =)

Aye this doesn't say anything about the i3 models that had info "leaked" a couple weeks ago which said they were 200 series compatible but that would be it. The reason I'm fairly sure they will be is that they're all just current i5s rebranded.

I really hope they bring some sanity back to their product stack with Ice Lake, because it's a bewildering mess right now.

Yeah it really is. I feel stuck with my G4560 because the i5s aren't much of an upgrade and then the new stuff won't work with my b250 mobo. So my option is an expensive i7 7700(non k) or new mobo and a 1500x for the less money!!!
