    Is there a true PCI 4.0 motherboard for Intel's Gen 11 cpu's?


    Hmm...

    I see that Intel is releasing it's 11th Gen CPU lineup.

    11th Gen Intel Core: Unmatched Overclocking, Game Performance | Intel Newsroom

    However, the description seems to lacking details on full PCI 4.0 support, unlike AMD.

    Opinions?

    Thanks.

    All you have to do is look at the Z590 motherboards supporting them. Here's ASUS' ROG Strix Z590-E Gaming WiFi 6E board's specs. Check "Storage" under "Tech Specs"

    Only Intel® 11th Core™ processors support PCIe 4.0 x4 mode, this slot will be disabled for other CPUs
    Edit: Intel strategist claims PCIe 4.0 SSDs will be faster on 11th gen CPUs than AMD

    Ah, yes... The Chipset is the key. Forgot about that.

    Thanks.

    Note that with the 11th gen CPUs, these will enable PCIe 4 on some of the 400 series motherboards. You would need to check the specs for your specific MB to determine if this is the case for your MB, but I've already seen a number of MBs update their specs to indicate PCIe 4 support when upgrading to an 11th gen CPU.

    I'm currently building a system based on 11th gen i9-11900K. I have every single part here already, just no CPU. Orders and shipping for the i9 start tomorrow (Mar 30, 2021).

    Storage:
    Seagate FireCuda 520 1 TB Gen 4x4 NVMe SSD
    Seagate FireCuda 520 2 TB Gen 4x4 NVMe SSD
    Samsung 870 QVO 8 TB SSD
    Western Digital WD80EFAX 8TB NAS HDD (Qty. 2)
    PSU: Corsair HX850i
    Chassis: Corsair iCUE 5000X RGB
    Fans:
    Corsair SP Elite RGB 120mm fans (Qty. 3)
    Noctua NF-S12A chromax.black.swap fans (Qty. 7)
    TPM: ASUS 14-pin SPI TPM
    WiFi: WiFi 6E / Bluetooth 5.2 PCIe adapter

    Note that no GPU is listed. I'm not a heavy gamer currently so the integrated graphics will do for now.

    Day late dollar short for my reply to your answer to my question. Anyway that's a nice system you built there. And 128gig of RAM... WOW!!! What are you running that you need that much RAM?

    And for that system you gotta get some type of dedicated GPU. Doesn't have to be top end, but even mid grade is gonna be better than that integrated GPU. But at the end of the day it's your money so I get it.
