    I been looking up hi-end x570 mobos, why there are USB 3.0 Gen 1 ports and where all the promised 10Gbps ports????

    Im sure everyone seen the offical AMD chipset + CPU connection "graph" image [Looking at it now while i type this]

    It says plain and simple:
    CPU: x4 SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps Ports
    x570: x8 SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps Ports
    x570: x4 USB 2.0 ports

    Nowhere it says USB 3.0 5Gbps.

    So we should have at least x9 10Gbps ports on the back, two Type-A front panel, one Type-C front panel.
    Total 12 SuperSpeed ports.

    Aorus Master: x5 10Gbps ports + some 5 gbps ports

    ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X: x2 10Gbps ports [Yeah thats TWO 10Gbps ports] + x6 5Gbps

    X570 AORUS XTREME: x7 10Gbps ports [this is VERY expensive board too]

    So far only asus boards have promised x12 10GBPS ports x9 ports + x3 10 gbps made into 6 5Gbps
    ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula: x8+1 10Gbps Ports + x4+2 5Gbps + 4 USB 2.0
    ROG Crosshair VIII Hero: x8+1 10Gbps Ports + x4+2 5Gbps + 4 USB 2.0

    So far ASUS boards look like the best option if you wants lots of fast USB ports [they also come with 8-Sata but just two M.2, hopefully non-Shared]
    Personally I was sure we are going to forget USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 as bad dream, 12 10GBps ports is more then enough, 9 on the back, two type A on the front and one Type C on the front
    And legacy USB 2.0 ports on the motherboard for controllers like some Water cooling or power supply need it

    3.1 Gen 1 is 5Gbps
    According to AMD every USB port on Ryzen 3000 + x570 are USB 3.1 Gen 2 10Gbps

    Actually this asus has all of them.
    x9 10gb and extra x6 5gb, so the took x3 10gb thats left and turned them into x6 5gb.
    This mobo has tons of usb. But unlike gigabyte all asus x570 mobos come with just x2 m. 2 instead x3, but they have 8 sata instead 6 on gigabyte.

    Only asus? What about all those OEMs making mini-ITX with a x570??? You cannot even full fill the I/O of the CPU on a mini-itx :|

    To be honest, I/O devices such as mice and keyboards don't need any of the USB 3.0 technology.

    But, what kind of interests me is, you know those little USB plugs that go into monitors? Like my Dell U2515H. Will THAT plug be USB 3.1 Gen 2 if I plug it into a Gen 2 slot? Or will I just have whatever the monitor supports?

    Not that it matters much. I use those for my USB devices like my Gamecube controller hub and my PS2 controller hub. I just dunno if maybe that extra power would do anything for the monitor ports.
