Maybe Biostar was a bit jealous after the MSI plague, so here's their "Racing X570GT8". This is the first real photo of X570, the new chipset for ZEN2 / Ryzen 3000.
If you look at the motherboard, you see a powerful VRM, probably to deal with the rumored 16-core proc. The board extracts juice from 8 + 4-pin EPS connectors and the leaked PDF reveals a 12-phase VRM. There are the usual suspects, two metal-reinforced PCI-Express x16 slots and yes, that would be PCI-Express gen 4.0. Memory support is up to 4000 MHz, there are three PCIe x16 slots and one PCIe x1 slot on board. In terms of connections, we see one gigabit Ethernet port and one DVI display connection. Finally, this data confirms that the X570 chipset supports the fourth generation PCI Express / PCIe 4.0. We will probably find out more during Computex. I haven't seen an active chipset cooler (fan) in a while. I hope it's not a trend.
