MSI announced 10 revised AMD 300-and 400-series motherboards that support AMD Ryzen 3000-series CPUs out-of-the-box. They're branded with the suffix "MAX."

Unfortunately, like all other pre-500 series motherboards, they will apparently not support PCIe gen4.

"This is an error we are correcting. Pre-X570 boards will not support PCIe Gen 4. There's no guarantee that older motherboards can reliably run the more stringent signaling requirements of Gen4, and we simply cannot have a mix of "yes, no, maybe" in the market for all the older motherboards. The potential for confusion is too high.

When final BIOSes are released for 3rd Gen Ryzen (AGESA 1000+), Gen4 will not be an option anymore. We wish we could've enabled this backwards, but the risk is too great."

What about availability? When will we be able to really buy these Max versions?
I am waiting for the MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX so I can upgrade my good old Intel i5 2500K @4.7Ghz to a brand new AMD Ryzen 5 3600...
Cheers
