AMD "Promontory" chipset will be rather feature-rich: it will connect to processors using PCI Express 3.0 x4 bus (up to 4GB/s of bandwidth) and will support USB 3.1, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports; one PCI Express 2.0 general-purpose port for various controllers; Serial ATA-6Gb/s and SATA Express port(s). Since "Promontory" platform controller hub (PCH) will rely on a single 4GB/s interconnection to microprocessor, do not expect it to enable a lot of 10Gb/s USB 3.1 ports along with numerous fast SATA Express ports.

In fact, the crucial input/output interfaces of AMD's next-gen client PC platforms will be integrated into APUs and CPUs themselves, according to a block diagram published by BenchLife web-site. AMD's future microprocessors will built-in processor-direct storage controller: next-gen AMD FX "Summit Ridge" will feature a PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe port or one PCIe 3.0 x2 along with two Serial ATA 3.0 ports, whereas less advanced "Bristol Ridge" and other chips will support PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe and two Serial ATA 3.0 ports (or one SATA Express). The upcoming processors will also incorporate four USB 3.0/2.0 ports as well as audio, SPI and LPC interfaces.

Except for that AMD presentation from literally yesterday when the people in charge of the entire company were all on stage with their powerpoint presentation listing that AM4 would be the next socket. But no, guess they wont use an AMx again... [/sarcasm]

I see. I don't follow tech news anymore, I pretty much analysed the article itself on its own.
