As in, there is no guarantee as you claimed. Not all motherboards will magically become PCIE 4.0, and it will require motherboards to make sure it works, and not just magic, a swing of a wand.
So, you keep claiming something that is not going to happen necessarily.
Especially since you even didn't read the last sentence of that paragraph.

So, again, it will not be magic. Board has to be ready for PCIE 4.0 in the first place right? What if it's not? So puttying a new ryzen will make it anyway? No. That is my point.
If they made the board for PCIE 3.0 only, and not PCIE 4.0, putting a new chip doesn't make it PCIE 4.0. My point stands, You two just keep trying to make it look like ryzen will, while it won't.
