PCIe 4 is finally here. AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 generation of CPUs are backwards compatible with most first and second-generation, 300 and 400 series motherboards. But the 500 series, and more specifically the X570 chipset , introduces some exciting features, including support for PCIe 4.0. But considering graphics cards of today don't even max out PCIE 3.0, and many of AMD's flagship X470 motherboards from 2018 actually ran PCIE 2.0, is there really much point to the new standard? The answer is actually, yes. Despite mainstream graphics cards not needing anything close to the full (almost) 32GBps of unidirectional bandwidth that PCIe 4.0 x16 ports offer, there are some very real benefits to the new standard and they could make upgrading to the new 500 series motherboards worthwhile for AMD fans. And even Intel ones. Especially if the projected performance for Ryzen 3000 is anything to go by. More bandwidth means more lanes When it comes to PCIe lanes, graphics cards are the most hungry for them. The top-tier GPUs like Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and AMD's Radeon VII require masses of bandwidth to pump out the high frame rates and details that they're capable of. But even these cards… Read full this story
