Yep this was well known prior to launch.
AMD's senior technical marketing head, Robert Hallock, took to Reddit to clear up rumours concerning the above. Hallock stated that "Pre-X570 boards will not support PCIe Gen 4," despite some tech news and social media chatter he had observed during Computex week. This included screenshots of updated BIOS UIs from AMD 300 and 400 series chipset motherboards which allowed the user to toggle various PCIe slot generation options, including PCIe Gen 4. Hallock went on to say that such options were present in non-final BIOS updates and would be removed going forward.

The reason for AMD suggesting this. Or pushing for it, is that "There's no guarantee that older motherboards can reliably run the more stringent signalling requirements of Gen 4, and we simply cannot have a mix of 'yes, no, maybe' in the market for all the older motherboards," explained Hallock, adding that "The potential for confusion is too high... the risk is too great."
