ASUS tease new PRIME X590-PRO and ROG STRIX X590-E boards

Oops, it looks like ASUS just confirmed the beefier X590 chipset

ASUS is reportedly preparing two new motherboards based on AMD's unannounced and so far unofficial X590 chipset.


The new rumor is from VideoCardz and their exclusive sources, which said the "PRIME X590-PRO and ROG STRIX X590-E are being mentioned in confidential documents that we have seen".

We don't know what to expect with the new X590 chipset, with previous rumors pegging it to have more PCIe 4.0 lanes than the current X570 boards. Another thing to remember is that AMD is soon launching its Ryzen 9 3950X, a beasty 16C/32T chip that would launch perfectly with the new X590 chipset.

As news breaks on the new X590 chipset, we'll bring you the latest. For now it lives in my dreams... For now.
