I cannot wait for Ryzen 3 and a X570 mobo. My 4790K is more laggy than it should be since the spectre and meltdown patches.

JerryC, are those the CPUs where Intel is charging the same even when the GPU is deactivated at the factory because it is defective? Or the ones where Intel will price them at least $100 more than Ryzen 3000s with the equivalent processing speed? Plus I bet you will need to buy a new motherboard for the new Intel chips, while the Ryzens will drop right into our current M4 motherboards with only a need to update the board firmware.

I ponder what they would even need to upgrade to go from X470 to X570. It sounds like the only real difference is probably just taking advantage of PCIE4 by slapping more or better stuff on the board... that won't realistically effect a vast majority of people.

Otherwise it seems that efficiency gains will reasonably offset other aspects as to make most upgrades moot. Maybe an upgrade for the low-end to more reliably handle the new CPUs? Maybe the top-end motherboards will get Overkill-VRM to prepare for seriously overclocking the rumoured Ryzen9 part?

If there are enhancements, why not release a new chipset? Even if the new CPUs work with the old chipsets (with a BIOS flash), a lot of users are buying boards with their CPUs anyway for various reasons, so it makes sense to have the most current chipset iteration available to purchase.
