Unlock blazing-fast PCIe 4 speeds with these killer X570 motherboard deals for AMD Ryzen CPUs
Third-generation Ryzen CPUs kick so much butt that AMD snatched the desktop crown from Intel for the first time in 15 years, but if you want to unlock their blazing-fast PCIe 4.0 support, companion X570 motherboards are damned expensive. That’s changing as we get into the heat of Black Friday. A number of X570 motherboards have dropped to downright affordable price ranges.
You don’t need X570. You can use an older motherboard with Ryzen 3000 processors, such as an X470 or the budget-friendly B450 models. But combined with a Ryzen 3000 CPU, however, only the X570 chipset supports the cutting-edge PCIe 4.0 interface. Face-meltingly fast PCIe 4.0 SSDs are already available, and AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs—our pick for the best 1440p graphics cards—support the newfangled interface, too. Our PCIe 4.0 primer packs all the info you need to know.
