I wonder does that mean Intel 5GBE and possibly 10GBE NICS will become common place in motherboards for Meteor Lake/Ryzen 5000. Right now only the most expensive board carry it and its the Aquantia ones too.

$279 for the ASUS ROG Strix B550-E



considering throwing together a Ryzen system for a NAS and B550 would be nice, but not when you can get B450 and a 10 GbE NIC for the same price

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)

However i like the look of the B550 mortar. It looks like a pretty nice mATX. And the second m.2 is x4.



But why? The 3900x is cheaper then the 10900k anyway. They should just drop the 3950x price.
More nails into the coffin + 3950x won't go lower than $650 at max for the next 4 months, its an insane CPU that nothing in the market comes close to (@ the current price) let alone at a lower price.

I think you can get a full nas (No drives) for a little over that price.

Bless your soul Asus, for showing us that the rest of the market is a better place than what we think.

I wonder if B550 tomahawk and mortar will be as good as B450 parts. Might actually switch to B550 tomahawk since now it has S/PDIF. Had to settle for B450 mortar max since tomahawk didn't have it.

is it too much to ask for an mATX board with an x1 first slot, two functional M.2 NVMe that wouldn't disable the other x4 slot, and 6SATA slots?
the closest we have of this is Asrock's B450M PRO4, but it's 2nd M.2 is SATA only and only had 4SATA slots in total.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

I wonder if you can pass the video signal from an older gpu through a 4000 apu to get hdmi 2.1. I would guess it would work but not very well.

Considering the price of 5 and 10Gb routers and switches there's no way anything above 1Gb is going to become standard for years to come. When manufacturers stop milking us and prices come down to reasonable levels will anything over 1BGb become adopted and while 10Gb would benefit me, especially when I copy hundreds of GB to my server, I won't spend that exorbitant amount of money on my network when that money can be put to better use (I would rather have more disk space than save time copying as that can be done overnight).

Hopefully no sneaky z490s without the v2 xD, or there's always 5GB and 10GB marvell.

PCIe 5.0 has enough bandwidth for 10GbE on a single lane. Which should be the same amount of lanes the 2.5GbE is using on B550 do to PCIe 3.0. We might even start seeing 2 10GbE on boards.

Prices need to be kept sensible, in last 5 years they've stripped many useful features and replaced them with RGB and other aesthetics crap. $150 used to be a board with buttons, post code display, extra sata, extra USB via 3rd party chips, 2 UEFIs with a user switch, ... now you're lucky if you can even get some of it on a high end board costing a fortune.

Over 1Gb ethernet is nice but the router/switch makers are not and they keep the prices high, overall the networking equipment is often either consumer trash that's fine for a couple users on a home network or one is spending a small fortune for professional corporate gear, even though these networking devices are darn simple ones.

The 4000 Ryzen is a nice change again but the prices overall of the mobos and CPUs are not, this goes for Intel platform too.

Might as well skip DDR4 altogether and wait for DDR5 be it with PCIe4 or PCIe5, then DP2.0 and HDMI2.1 should be common too.
