With the new AMD X570 chipset for socket AM4, we are bringing industry leading technology for enthusiasts, gamers and creators alike.
PCI Express® 4.0
Modern PC platforms use the PCI Express® 3.0 interface, which can transfer data up to 1GB/s per lane, or 16GB/s on a x16 slot. With the continuously increasing performance demands of games and applications, the devices that are being built to meet those demands require equally increasing bandwidth. The new PCIe 4.0 standard DOUBLES the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0 to up to 2GB/s per lane, or up to 32 GB/s on a x16 slot, enabling new generations of high-performance graphics cards, networking devices, NVMe drives, ethernet cards and more.
What can PCIe 4.0 do for you? Increased bandwidth can remove bottlenecks to performance and accelerate your workflow. That means the promise of faster file storage, faster application loading, and even faster graphics performance is tied to adoption of the PCIe 4.0 standard.
The future of PCIe 4.0 bandwidth starts in 2019 with the launch of 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors and AMD X570-based motherboards. We’ve been working closely with leading technology partners like Phison to enable the first PCIe 4.0 ×4 NVMe controllers for consumer storage devices, as well as SSD vendors like Corsair, Galaxy and Gigabyte to help bring PCIe 4.0 drives to market.
