AMD To Collaborate with ASMedia For PCIe 4.0 Chipsets
Citing "industry sources," a recent report from Digitimes claims that ASMedia Technology is "expected to land contract design orders for all mainstream PCIe chips from AMD even after the US chipmaker rolls out X570 motherboard chipsets that support PCIe 4.0 in mid-2019." However, in the same sentence, the report says that ASMedia won't tape out their PCIe 4.0 solutions until the end of 2019. This seemingly corroborates an earlier report from GamersNexus claiming that X570 motherboards will launch with AMD designed, Epyc derived chipsets that support PCIe 4.0, but also suggests that AMD will continue to partner with ASMedia for lower-end "X500 series" chipsets.
