Gigabyte Will Be The First To Offer PCIe 4.0 On It's AMD X570 Motherboards
With Amazon Prime Day Deals currently dominating the news, I found something on the web that is quite fascinating, well at least its fascinating to me. According to published reports, Gigabyte will be the first to offer PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD on AMD's X570 motherboards, the Gigabyte Aorus M.2 NVMe GEN4 SSD 2TB, and ASRock X570 Taichi. Since this is still the early stages of PCIe 4.0 technology, you should expect a limited supply of hard drives. By chance if you ever get hold of an X570 motherboard you should know that potentially you will have a supremely fast data throughput. Quite possibly capable of copying a 4GB ISO file in just 3.8 seconds. For those who have an acquiring interest in PCIe 4.0 technology you should be advised to hold off from purchasing the new PCIe NVMe SSD drives for now as price point expected be $460. Also, according to reports, testing show this particular NVMe controller does not fully take advantage of available bandwidth on the new interface. As the technology matures, you should see an increase in performance.
Fact, AMD's newest Ryzen PC processors are the first to support PCIe 4.0 which doubles PCIe 3.0 data transfer rate.
