[SOLVED] Does this motherboard support 3200mhz memory?

I'm planning on buying an "Asrock H570M Pro4 Motherboard Micro ATX" and a DDR4-3200mhz memory kit. I thought that this motherboard supports 3200mhz memory due to this site (https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H570M Pro4/index.asp) and another site that's in greek so there's no point in me sharing the link. However, another person said that it only supports up to 2666mhz. Is that person correct?

Natively, no. In fact the highest you can go with rams is 2933MHz, provided you go for an i7 or an i9 processor, due to their memory controller. If you're sticking to an i5 or lower, the max memory frequency you're going to get is 2666Mhz. You can drop in DDR4-3200MHz rams but you won't get their speeds.

FYI, you forgot to link to "the post on that site". I'll make it easier for you;

Edit:
I forgot about Intel enabling overclocking on the lower tier boards for higher speed rams;
