Building The ASRock Creator X570 PCIe 4 Test Bench – PCIe 4.0 Goes Mainstream

CORSAIR DARK CORE RGB SE WIRELESS GAMING MOUSE

The fact that this mouse is wireless through Wi-Fi @ 2.4Ghz or BT is excellent, although I wish their was a place in the mouse for the USB key when not being used on a system.  The feel and movement of this mouse is great with a 16,000 DPI optical sensor and this is iCue compatible but…  It will not sync so that it changes colors at the same time as the rest of your iCue gear.

There is a great feel to this mouse and it is available at Amazon for $69.99 at Amazon.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

PCIe 4.0 has been a while in the making but this system has so much more than simply that, the most used by myself easily being dual Thunderbolt 3.  The graphics adapter, or at least performance with respect to it… is frustrating, especially since I have tried drivers, software re-installation, and even switching cards.  I have this feeling that it is something in the settings that I am not familiar with.

I am still really impressed with the passive and active cooling ASRock has incorporated into the Hyper M.2 locations of this motherboard.

Its v odd you dont compare the nvme’s results when connected to the chipset nvme port?

Perhaps you could elaborate?

It seems inevitable that chipset lanes are degraded vs native lanes, but by how much? Comparinga pcie 4 nvme on each type of nvme port seems a good test, & pertinent to many nvme buyers.

Peter is saying that the two NVMe ports are powered by different “grades” of PCIe lanes. One port is powered by native PCIe 4.0 lanes from the CPU, The other is powered by PCIe 4.0 lanes coming from the chipset. The Ryzen 3 series has 24 lanes of PCIe 4.0 connectivity. (Check Anandtech article here: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14161/the-amd-x570-motherboard-overview). The breakdown is 16x for graphics, 4x for NVMe, 4x for the Chipset link. The chipset offers an additional 24 lanes of PCIe 4.0. But all of those are bottlenecked by that 4x link between chipset and CPU. So one of those NVMe ports… Read more »

Hardware which are used in these devices are too good and reliable and the proficiency is beyond the mark.
