Doesn't this kind of contradict everything we have been told previously on how PCI-e 4 needed additional hardware that was not in use for PCI-e 3 and that the chipsets would need cooling to manage the additional load on the chipset?
And that this was the justification for the additional price (extra layers needed in the PCB to support the additional connections and more expensive chipset)?
I mean a crosshair 7 is around the 270 to 300 price where as a crosshair 8 is 400.
Something is not right here, admittedly a bonus for anyone on the x470 but if you have bought a x570 because everyone involved told you that you had to if you wanted PCI-e 4 (AMD, board manufacturers, reviewers ect) is kind of misleading and possibly liable.
