    Dude, somebody has to shoehorn an X370 in a ITX with 2x PCI-E slots for dual(quad?) Vega for the Lan party box. Heh! Oh, if only Abit was still around.

    Why no mention of DisplayPort and HDMI or which version? I expected the new AM4 to have Display Port 1.4 and HDMI 2.0. I hope they have support for the latest NVMe specs. Also, will the new AM4 be backward compatible or no?

    Because none of these have integrated graphics, and they will not be backward comparable

    Gigabyte mentioned (based on articles from other sites) HDMI 2.0 on the boards that have it. Did not see mention of revision of DP that is on the ones that have it.

    I'm very curious to see some tests for AM4 & Rysen vs Z270 & KabyLake to see which system makes the best use of the new NVMe SSD's.
