[Tom's Hardware] Gigabyte Enables PCIe 4.0 on X470 and B450 Motherboards (Updated)

Source: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/gi...470,39377.html

Quote:
Over the last few weeks, motherboard makers have released a steady stream of BIOS updates to support AMD's Ryzen 3000 processors, but Gigabyte's newest BIOS has a special feature: The company has enabled the option for PCIe 4.0 in the BIOS of its X470 Aorus Gaming Wi-Fi 7 motherboard. That signals that, under some circumstances, the company will likely support PCIe 4.0 on existing motherboards if you drop in a new Ryzen 3000 processor.

At CES 2019, AMD confirmed to Tom's Hardware that 300- and 400-series AM4 motherboards could support PCIe 4.0. AMD will not lock the out feature; instead, it will be up to motherboard vendors to validate and qualify the faster standard on their motherboards on a case-by-case basis. Motherboard vendors that do support the feature will enable it through BIOS updates, but those updates will come at the discretion of the vendor. AMD also cautioned that most motherboard vendors might not bother supporting the faster interface on existing motherboards.

Saw this a couple days ago, always nice to see that even though there are limitations there is a ''Free'' upgrade to the existing platform, obviously it will depend on the boards and will only likely apply to the first PCI-E Slot, but nice nonetheless.

we can expect a 180 degree response from intel though

Can't wait to see how this is going to be spun as bad for AMD and great for Intel by that whole crowd...

AMD's motherboard support is in a league of it's own when you compare at what Intel has been doing for the past decade. They offer backwards compatibility and even enable new features when possible. A breath of fresh air, specially since Intel has been adding pins to their sockets just because. That's cool for X470 owners. I wonder how they are doing it, from my understanding x570 has issues with pci-e 4.0 and it's causing it to overheat, how a chip designed for 3.0 can handle it?

There's no software ecosystem for PCI-E 4.0.
