ASMedia Will Likely Keep Making AMD Chipsets

Considering AM4 only allows 24 PCIe lanes, 2 SATA and 4 USB3 through the socket, a breakout hub (aka the "chipset") is still needed for regular ATX boards. This could simply be another refresh of the current chips, or we could see them upgraded to 8xPCIe3 with the main x4 link upgraded to PCIe4, which simply means even more NVMe and USB flexibility.

Again with the misinformation... Asmedia vulnerabilities affect Intel and AMD chipsets.

Intel's BTW represents 10x more by volume (from back before Kabylake), its interesting that only AMD's processors are mentioned whenever these vulnerabilities are brought up, good job Tom's for losing even more credibility with your skewed reporting.
 

ASMedia doesn't make Intel chipsets. Occasionally motherboard manufacturers may add a 3rd party (e.g. ASMedia) controller to an Intel board to add more ports. But it looks like the ASMedia vulnerability mentioned related to the PCH/chipset proper, so it's not relevant to Intel boards.
