Grin 7+14 in I/O actually

Even tho its all rumors, I do believe 7/7/19 could be very important date for 7nm products. (7nm/7nm/7nm+12nm)

AlphaC How is that any different than now? If you buy a mid-end X370/X470 they're generally already struggling with sustained AVX loads with R7 2700X when overclocked.

What I think will happen is that if there's a 12 core the PPT (package power tracking) will be constrained under all core load (something akin to 130-150W) and when you have a good board the power limit will be lifted higher via BIOS to 200W or more. That's not going to change light load such as 4 core loads provided the power gating built into the Zen 2 chips is decent.

Grin I guess all maybe correct, but...

The top Zen’s will work only on top 370-470 boards, the middle will go to the middle boards because of vrm power. Nobody exactly promised that the new Zen’s with 12-16 cores will work on 320 chipset mobo.

AlphaC Asrock Taichi is the cheapest Asrock board I would buy, the rest on AMD platform aren't great.

The midrange boards such as Killer SLI are worse off than MSI B450 Pro Carbon or the ASUS STRIX x370-F / X470-F (has BCLK).

firefox2501 How have the high and mid range amd asrock boards been as of late? The last few boards I've done for my intel builds have been rock solid on power delivery. Has this translated over to the board design for amd as well?

AlphaC If it's the X470 Pro Carbon, it's using the same Onsemi parts as the X470 M7. The differences are the PWM controller , 2 extra phases , and doublers on the M7.

If the Pro carbon is a "bad board", so is every other non-flagship basically because short of the X470 STRIX every midrange board is using powerpaks or fewer powerstages. It's a mediocre board in terms of components, but it is priced where it should be (under Taichi).

Next time you buy a motherboard and plan to keep it for future upgrades (ie an AMD board since Intel likes to screw their customers out of money), think about it like this: spend $150 now and get an average quality board that may or may not be future proof, or spend $200-250 and not have to buy another $150+ motherboard if you want to upgrade to a future processor series. You potentially save $100 or more by buying one quality board once rather than an average quality one twice.
Buildzoid recommended this board in one of his "Best Motherboards for AMD Ryzen 2018" video's which was featured on GamersNexus. His only complaint was the lack of Negative Offset Voltage, and that has been added in a bios update since then.

Here's his quote from that video

"This motherboard has a plenty solid 5 phase VRM. In fact, I was very impressed with this 5 phase VRM in my testing."

The X470 Pro Carbon was the most expensive board I could afford at the time. And being as though I only intended on upgrading to another 8 core 16 thread CPU, the board is more than adequate for that, and can handle such a chip with zero issues at all.

I know you meant to help, but perhaps it's you who should have researched a bit better before making such an unhelpful, misinformed comment.

TheHorse There's a difference between "it works" and "it performs well".
