AMD reveals the capabilities of their AM4 motherboards

AMD reveals the capabilities of their AM4 motherboards, with three chipsets being overclocking ready and all Zen CPUs being overclockable.



Read more on AMD's AM4 platform.

Finally more confirmations, shame that all the mATX boards seen are the low end chipsets, I'm just praying that I can get an mATX X370 board. I really don't want to have to sell my 804.

This is a great idea tbh. Intel usually only offer overclocking on the most expensive boards which is BS.

Mind you having said that AMD have always offered far more boards than Intel does because AMD make their own chipsets so don't have to apply for or pay licensing fees per socket like all of the AIBs do. I would imagine that is why you can still buy a plethora of AMD boards for AMD3 CPUs and why we were still seeing new 970 and 990 boards up until a few weeks ago.

Looking forward to seeing if there are any itx boards that will overclock well. Thinking about doing a lot quasi sff build with a heap of water cooling stuff too

I wouldn't expect any overclocking. Cramming 8 phases or more onto an ITX board is seriously difficult. I would imagine what you will get is something like the Asrock X99 board that can take a 5820k to 4ghz or run a stock 5960x.

Looking like AMD are going to disable overclocking on smaller/cheaper boards. Good idea ! I can not even begin to start on how many older boards fried when they released the X6. People just didn't understand that the VRMs were lacking or not even cooled properly. Loads of MSI boards caught fire. It was made worse when the Bulldozer chips came along too. So many boards listing them as working but could not even hold them at stock without burning up.

The mATX X370 platform might not be necessary as the only thing I see that it has over the lower end segment (B350) is SLI/Crossfire capabilities. Since very few will Crossfire or SLI using an mATX board, that makes sense. All other features appear, at least to me, available with the B350 models.

Good point. Based on what's seen here it wouldn't be a problem, I've done SLI/Crossfire and won't again. I'm just a little confused because on this slide, it says about PCIe Gen 2 lanes, is that just for m.2 storage or PCIe in general?

As long as the differences are really only limited to these then I'll get a B350 without a problem, I generally like to buy my boards with expansion in mind.

Hmmm... I'm not sure I understand that slide. Somebody else might be able to chime in and explain the 'GP Gen 2' bit.

The GP Gen 2 refers to General Purpose Generation 2 lanes (PCIe 2.0).

The boards will offer 2 x full PCIe 3.0 x16 support (Shown as SATAe & GP Gen 3 in the graph) or a combination of SATAe and a full x16 Slot for the GPU.

Remeber this is just the AMD chipset and other PCIe lanes can be added by AIB's by using a PLX chip
