    i can't find the storage controller drivers, supposedly i should be able to install them before running sysprep. i've seen videos and articles on swapping board with win 7 but ,they only include usb drivers, it seems implied that it should pick up storage or chipset drivers THAT or that the chipset drivers are easily found but, on AMDs site it just says make sure win 10 is up to date with no DL links for any drivers.

    EDIT: found some drivers but, either the mobo swap and or sysprep borked my 7 install. think i'm going to go with a windows 9 clean install.

    i just can't tell on the asus prime x570-p if adding msata SSDs drops the PCie speeds, looks like they are already dropped with or without the m.2 ssd installed.

    As in AMD did not know what the hell to do with these.

    The next iteration after "AE" on the original launch 1600.

    And what's the point for this?, why don't they just make it a 2600s or something..

    Or a 2500X...

    I think the point is to get rid of dies that otherwise wouldn't be useful because they don't meet the binning for 2600's. Better to sell for $85 than get nothing for them. The naming is questionable though as it is clearly a Zen+ part. At the very least, I'd imagine that you'd need a Zen+ aware bios to run it which you wouldn't with an old "AE" 1600.

    Since BIOS identifies via microcode it wouldn't matter. Better perf with newer BIOS probably.

    2500X sounds better and doesn't makes it confusing, or at least sell those only to OEMs that would be interesting.
