    AMD Preparing X590 Platform for Ryzen 3000 CPUs, Meant for Enthusiasts

    AMD wants to make the most of its Ryzen 3000 lineup and why wouldn’t they, it’s the first consumer product stack to feature core counts of up to 16 cores. In contrast, Intel’s i9-9900K has (only) eight cores, and with the Zombieland exploit lurking in the background, many users are disabling hyper-threading, limiting the thread count to 8 as well.

    Alongside the Ryzen 3000 lineup, AMD launched the X570 platform to take full advantage of the new Zen 2 cores, faster DDR4 memory and the PCIe 4 standard. If you thought that the X570 motherboards are too expensive, then brace yourself. AMD is prepping an enthusiast-range (read: extreme edition) X590 chipset that will pack even more lanes, better I/O and possibly enhanced memory overclocking.

    This rumor started gaining momentum after multiple outlets noticed it. It was first teased by 1usmus, who shared the picture of an unreleased ASUS ROG motherboard with the caption, “X590 Coming Soon”. Shortly after this, a user from Computerbase forums dug deep into the BIOS of an X570 motherboard, once again spotting a mention of the X590 chipset, right alongside the X570.

    Now, what the new chipset will offer is the subject of a rather intensive discussion, but the likely case is that it’ll feature enthusiast level options like a higher PCIe lane count, better CPU overclocking support, more I/O ports, faster memory support, etc.

    However, considering that the X570 boards are out of the budgets of most people, one can only wonder what sort of pricing will the X590 chipset launch with.

    I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
