The procured slide, from a private event organized by Gigabyte, reveals that AMD’s third generation Ryzen desktop platform could be released during the Computex 2019 event in June.
The platform will include AMD’s first client processor, based on the company’s Zen 2 microarchitecture (the code name Matisse), and there is also the accompanying AMD X570 chipset.
The third generation of Ryzen with the X570 chip should be the world’s first mainstream desktop platform that will have PCI-Express gene 4.0. AMD could maintain processor compatibility with older 300-series and 400-series motherboards by designing its PCI-Express implementation to use external re-drives based on the motherboard.
Compatibility with older panels will mean that, unless users need PCIe gene 4.0, it is possible to save money if they opt for an older platform.
