During the keynote speech at Computex 2019, Dr. Su Qifeng (Lisa Su), AMD CEO, disclosed a series dedicated to the Rilong 3000 series.
In addition to introducing a new consumer chipset (X570) that supports PCIe 4.0 bus, AMD also provides a backward compatible option for motherboard manufacturers, but with stricter specifications.
For example, with the help of independent PCIe controllers on the Ruilong 3000 series CPUs, the last generation X470/B450 motherboard is expected to obtain limited PCIe 4.0 support through firmware updates (only one x16 slot is available).
If you are worried about confronting some inexplicable problems, it is better for players who are not poor in money to buy X570 chipset motherboards that support PCIe 4.0 natively.
The top x16 slot can be connected directly to the CPU's PCI 4.0, as can the first NVMe M.2 slot (PCIe x4), and the bandwidth for USB 3.1 Gen 2.

In addition, chipsets can handle the bandwidth of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SATA and other port components. However, such a powerful function also pushes the power consumption of the chipset to about 11W. By contrast, the X470 chipset is only 6W.
It needs to be pointed out that it is reported that AMD will introduce two specifications of chipsets, with a version of 11 W and a version of 15 W
Finally, AMD has taken care of the development and design of chipsets since X570.
By contrast, the previous design of the X470/X370 chipset was completely outsourced to ASMedia. For more details on the X570 chipset, please be patient for the official announcement.
