If AMD sticks to it's stance on 4000 CPU support on 300 & 400 would MSI consider offering some sort of discount or trade in program for customers who bought MAX boards? I think this would be a great PR move since the marketing of the MAX boards said they would support all future AM4 CPU's.Can't provide a comment on an unresolved partner matter, sorry.
Can the GTX 1070 run SLI with the RTX?

Thank you!This new Z490 chipset will support Intel 10th gen Core processors such as the i9-10900K processor and should also support the generation of processors after these. Anything older will not be supported due to the chipset using a new LGA 1200 socket compared to the LGA 1151 socket from the last generations.
