In July 2019, AMD released its X570 platform that featured a new high-end chipset and support for 3rd Generation Ryzen CPUs and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards. One year later, this platform is still quite relevant since AMD recently announced it will support the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors that have recently appeared on the market.

The X570 chipset was primarily designed to be a high-performance chipset which would be most useful to serious gamers, tech enthusiasts, content creators and technical professionals. It is a spiritual successor to AMD’s X470 chipset, and is also the chipset with a widest range of supported CPUs. The X570 supports Zen+, Zen 2 and Zen 3 CPU architecture, which means it supports AMD Ryzen 2000, 3000 and 5000 CPUs. Overall, the X570 platform is considered to be AMD’s most groundbreaking platform, and is able to offer cutting-edge performance, maximum bandwidth and breathtaking speed to mainstream consumers.

X570 Chipset Specifications and AMD Ryzen CPU Support

The X570’s greatest feature is its support for PCIe 4.0 bus interface which brings 64GB/s of bidirectional bandwidth, compared to the PCIe 3.0’s 32GB/s bandwidth. Most high-end and current-gen graphics cards will benefit from this technology, as it enables them to achieve double throughput, and thus much better performance in gaming. Besides GPUs, other PCIe devices, like NVMe SSD drives and 10-gigabit network add-in cards are able to make profit from the PCIe 4.0 bus interface. This new interface enables PCIe-attached solid state drives to achieve read speeds of up to 5000 MB/s, which is about 45% faster than the drives attached to the previous-gen PCIe interface.

The X570 chipset can also support up to 16 PCIe 4.0 lanes, up to 12 SATA3 (6 Gbps) ports, up to 8 USB 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps) ports, and up to four USB 2.0 (480 Mbps) ports. Since PCIe 4.0 is still quite expensive to implement, most mid-range motherboards featuring a X570 chipset usually have a mix of PCIe 3.0 and PCIe 4.0 lanes. This means that only the most expensive motherboards are able to deliver maximum performance officially declared by AMD.

Besides supporting the PCIe 4.0 interface, the X570 motherboards can accommodate the beefiest and most powerful processors produced by AMD. With a maximum supported TDP of up to 105W+, the X570 motherboards can easily handle high-end Ryzen CPUs such as Ryzen 7 3800X or Ryzen 9 3950X. These boards are also great for overclocking, as they feature improved power deliver systems, and support high-end RAM. Most X570 motherboards come with very advanced VRMs (Voltage Regulator Modules), and feature multiple CPU power connectors, high-quality capacitors, and active cooling solutions for chipsets.

According to amd.com, the X570 motherboards are fully compatible with the latest-gen AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors. This means you can install the latest Ryzen 5 5600X or Ryzen 9 5900X CPUs onto this boards without having to worry about whether they’ll work, or not. Some motherboards might require BIOS update to provide support for the latest-gen Ryzen CPUs, so be sure to read info on manufacturer’s product pages before making a final purchase.

Last but not least, most X570 motherboards come with high-end equipment, such as 2.5 GbE LAN, on-board Wi-Fi 6 modules, RGB lighting, BIOS flash buttons, 8-channel audio, S/PDIF out connectors, USB Type-C connectors, and support for NVIDA and AMD multi-GPU configurations. All of the new tech included means these motherboards cost more, however, their price is well-justified since PCIe 4.0 interface requires use of high-quality PCB components.

Are X570 Motherboards Future-proof?

In Fall 2020, AMD released Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors, but it still hasn’t officially announced the 600-series motherboards. By the looks of it, it seems that AMD won’t be doing that for quite some time. AMD also stated that the Ryzen 5000 processors will be the last featuring the AM4 socket, which means that the X570 motherboards (along with the other ones that support Ryzen 5000 CPUs) might be the last using this same socket.

What this all means is that X570 motherboards are quite future-proof when it comes to building a high-end gaming or workstation PC in 2021 or even 2022. Featuring support for Ryzen 5000 CPUs, as well as for PCIe 4.0 bus interface, the X570 motherboards will be feasible enough to support upcoming high-end graphics cards such as Radeon RX 6000 Series GPUs and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series GPUs.

How to Pick the Right X570 Motherboard?

Since many manufacturers have already released numerous motherboard models featuring the X570 chipset, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of buying options available at your disposal. When it comes to choosing the right motherboard for your next PC build, personal preferences must be taken into consideration. Down below you can see a list of things you should consider before purchasing the right X570 motherboard.

  • Overclocking – Most X570 motherboards are great for overclocking, however, different models use different VRMs, and thus produce different overclocking results. Usually motherboards that support higher RAM speeds, also tend to achieve better CPU overclocking results.
  • Multi-GPU support – Although multi-GPU setups aren’t very good for gaming, they are good for video editing, simulations and CAD/CAM software. If you are a serious professional, or content creator, choosing the motherboard with the most PCIe x16 slots is a must.
  • Storage – Some X570 motherboards feature only one M.2 SSD slot, while some of them feature up to three. Depending on how much space you need, choosing the board with the most storage connectors seems like an obvious choice.
  • Size – X570 motherboards come in various forms: from mini-ITX to ATX. If you plan to build a mid-tower or big tower PC, go with an ATX board. If you plan to build powerful a HTPC or mini PC, go with mini-ITX board.
  • Internet Connectivity – If you have an access to high-speed Internet, go with motherboards that feature 2.5 GbE LAN. If you don’t want to hassle with cables, go with boards that feature on-board Wi-Fi modules.
  • Accessibility – some boards feature multiple USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, while some even come with USB Type-C ports that support Thunderbolt 3 standard. Depending on your preferences, you should choose the board that best suits your needs.
