Yesterday you've seen plenty of X370 motherboards pass by, but little is known about them. New slides indicate new features, let's have a look at them.
The new slides confirm USB 3.1 (Gen2) support at 10 Gbps with combined several normal USB 3.0 ports as well as 4 SATA3 ports for X370. These boards will also get two SATA express ports. The chipset will offer eight acht PCI-Express 2.0 lanes. The processor itself supplies PCI-Express 3.0 lanes.
With a X370 chipset and a Ryzen CPU nets you six SATA ports, 32 lanes of PCIe connectivity, two USB 3.1 ports, and ten USB 3.0 ports. That's certainly not bad, but it puts the AM4 platform much closer to Intel's regular desktop machines than the Broadwell-E setups that come to mind when we talk about 8-core processors.
In other news, all Ryzen CPUs will be unlocked for overclocking, have a peek at the slides.
