The only thing that AMD has officially noted is leaving a lot of questions on the air, especially following the data and leaks we've seen over the past months.
Comments made by Lisa Su are summarized in these tips A300 and PRO 500 They are designed for retail users and active consumers who need a simple and easy solution. So, is it worth limiting your benefits a bit?
AMD Pro 560 FCH: chipset with an important future limit
The first major chipset dominates in its Lenovo specification ideacentre T540-15AMA Let's take a look at where this distance will go, which will include a series of motherboards that it's not clear when it will arrive in the mall.
In any case, it is clear that they will support Ryzen 3000 processors based on Zen 2, but it is clear that they can offer limitations depending on the number of cores and TDP. This can set aside the most powerful and fuel-efficient models, which makes sense if they are basic motherboards.
Use and support of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM standard for processors, but the limit will only allow up to 32 GB for use there 2666 MHz, and it is also speculated that the memory may go down due to the low memory capacity.
This confirms support for Ryzen 2000, including the PR range, where its BMI was at 2933 MHz.
You will not use the full power of Zen 2: limit the use of PCIe 4.0
One of the highlights of the Ryzen 3000 is the use PCIe 4.0 for all line extensions of this interface. Currently, it is enabled on motherboards only with the X570 chipset and apparently, this Pro 560 will not use it. Lenovo data reveals up to PCIe 3.0 X16 for its graphics cards and PCIe 3.0 X4 for its SSDs.
Therefore, AMD will not promote the adoption of this standard in the lower range of its products, so that all those who find the chipset machines burned under their belt will find themselves with significant bandwidth in the near future rather than far away, when new GPUs will have complete security with that level.
Same case for this NVMe M.2 SSD, which is also true where this chipset is AMD Pro 560 and will not provide support, limiting the potential development of high speed and power.
On the other hand and from an OEM manufacturers' point of view it makes sense: motherboards support Zen 2 with subsequent sales and sales, but when these boards finally reach retailers, there are no better options than models already in the market, especially since they offer nothing new at a discount price that might compete with -Intel where, in a sense, it can't.
