In a half-day, AMD’s CES 2020 keynote presentation will begin, when AMD will release a new collection of new products, the most notable of which is the 7nm plus technology, Zen3 architecture of the Rylong 4000 desktop version, is expected to be officially launched in the second half of this year, The Royal 600-series chipset will also fully support PCIe 4.0. AMD’s current chipset is a 500 series, 400 series or even 300 series mash-up, of which the flagship is the X570, supporting PCIe 4.0 is its biggest advantage, while the 400 series is dominated by the B450, x470 should soon be eliminated.
In the new products, the 500 series will also add a B550, positioning the mainstream market, continue by Xiangshuo knife, with the processor connection channel is PCIe 3.0 x4, while providing up to 8 PCIe 3.0 external.
If you pair it with three generations of Ryzen, you can still get PCIe 4.0, so you can use a PCIe 4.0 SSD, and even use the PCIe 4.0 graphics card, which certainly doesn’t make much sense.
Entry-level b520, replacing the previous entry-level A320 chipset, specifications change little, support PCIe 4.0 is no drama, anyway also can not use.
The latest news shows that the B550 and A520 chipsets are expected to produce goods in q1 quarter, should be a large number of listings after the Spring Festival.
It is worth noting that this year AMD will also have another round of chipset upgrades, the new 600-series chipset will also be with the release of Zen3 processor and come out, considering the B550, A520 this year’ situation, the first should be X670 chipset, will also fully support PCIe 4.0, but this time by Xiangshuo contract, So the specific specifications will be different from AMD,even the foundry is likely to change – AMD X570 is GF’s 14nm foundry, Xiangshuo generally uses TSMC foundry.
600 series chipset will be AMD’s AM4 platform the last generation, in 2021 if the successful launch of Zen4 architecture, AMD will upgrade DDR5, PCIe 5.0 and other new technologies, CPU slots will also live together, 700-series chipset will be changed.
