Power is not a valid argument either, as 7nm draws far less per-core of it than 14/12nm did, and nearly all of the X399 boards are severely overbuilt.

As a reminder, the rumor is that TX40 will be a 4-channel board that supports up to 32-cores. X399 is a 4-channel board that already supports 32 higher power consuming cores.
I was only guessing pcie4 might have been one reason for the decision to break support, and power was just an example of why other sockets had done so in the past. Now we can see some of the new socket's motherboard spec:



Looks like they've changed the rules for how pci-e lane pins are used, and routed them differently on the motherboard side after the socket.. I'd have to find the same slide for previous gen to compare better.

Every generation of Ryzen used PCI-e for the chipset if it had one.

The chipset gets NVMe RAID support because the chipset is literally the IO die from Ryzen/TR, but on the MB, so it can do everything the IO die can.
