    10Gb Ethernet is becoming "mainstream". What about 10Gb consumer router access points?

    Sorry Biostar, i don't care which VRM you use in your boards, you lost me like 20 years ago. BTW the Chrosshair extreme IO looks amazing, thats the amount of USB people need, i'm very excited with this platform (i just wish something like thunderbolt come fast for AMD plaforms)

    I just hope the Asus boards are not as expensive as the 690 Intel boards. Those are way over the top price wise.

    Let hope AMD new AM5 socket is stable when it launches, I didn't have good experience building my nephew's PC with r5 3600 + Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite...

    Doesn't look like other brands are much cheaper. Atleast on the high end side. Too expensive they all are for shure!

    So is the X670E completely PCI-E 5? Or only to the GPU and nvme, like AL?

    Two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots stand ready for the cutting-edge graphics cards of today and tomorrow. Between its two onboard slots and the three additional slots made available through the ROG PCIe 5.0 M.2 card and the ROG GEN-Z.2 card, the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme offers five total M.2 slots. Four support PCIe 5.0 x4 mode. Heatsinks for all the slots, including those on the add-in cards, ensure that you get the full performance of your drives without throttling. Six SATA 6Gbps ports let you establish an even larger storage array so you never have to ration your game library.

    Looking at the specs they seem to be mostly PCIe 5 with the for two 16x slots and they say PCIe 5 for 2x NVME (typical), now one of these PCIe 5 nVME maybe from the chipset while the other is direct to the CPU. It's not clear intill we get the motherboard layouts. The gigabyte Arous Extreme has 5x PCIe 5 nVME so some may have a PLX chip on them to increase the lane count, these boards will be expensive as PLX chips an't cheap (typically used in server and high end workstation boards).

    Raphael has four more chipset PCIe lanes than Matisse @ PCIe 5 so no PLX is necessary as a feature (doesn't mean high end boards won't have one)
