Does 2nd Gen Ryzen offer more performance on X470 motherboards?

Can X370 offer the same performance as X470?



Read more about Ryzen 2nd Gen's performance on X370 motherboards.

Not sure I agree with this:

"One other aspect that is worth noting for X470 is enhanced DDR4 memory support, which will allow users to have an easier time accessing higher memory clock speeds."

From what I have read so far the memory improvements are on the CPU itself with the improved mem controller, in that very video he is able to dial in the exact same settings on both the X4 and X3 chipsets.

The statement is correct. It has better memory support from BIOS and probably has better BIOS overall.

Kinda what I expected. X470 is really only supposed to have some better power delivery bits so there shouldn't be any real performance difference.

This video kinda reaffirms my notion of keeping my 1600X. I got lucky and got one that runs solid 24/7 at 4 gig, runs really cool and barely needed any voltage tweaking to get there. For a 3% gain, I don't think it's worth $250 to get a 2600X especially since all I do is game....and porn or course.

so when there is no performance difference that would mean precision boost 2 is working on x370 boards already?

i thought the support would only come in later bios versions for x370.

Nope, people are getting 3600mhz ram speeds o nX370 chipsets using the new 2xxx series CPU's, at least from the stuff ive seen anyway

AFAIK precision boost 2 is built into the CPU not the chipset, from what I have seen so far, there is no reason to buy an X470 over an X370

We are talking about launch support.

Apparently on X470 if you have a 2700x (note only the X) then you don't even need to OC as it will PB to 4100mhz on all cores without you doing anything. I am not 100% concrete that PB2 is not on 370 so you would have to basically OC it yourself. Which means that you would probably be better off buying the 2700 (if it comes out).
