Thanks for the prompt response.Currently PCIE 4.0 is not available with the T1 and you will have to source it yourself until @Wahaha360 says otherwise.
Personally based on what I have read from reliable testers, pcie 4.0 only makes a big difference with ssd storage and not much when it comes with GPU.
There are many posts on here where I have posted links to sources of information who have performed reliable testing.
I would wait til reviewers and people like pudget systems get their hands on the cards to see if its worth buying because marketing material can be made to look like it's better. Do not believe a MANUFACTURER'S own numbers. Wait for INDEPENDENT testing.
From past launches, AMD drivers will not be as good. It will be smart to wait a few months for them to mature. I have learned over the last 10+ yrs it's not worth being an early adopter.
I was less asking due to bandwidth and more due to the concern that Smart Access Memory may need 4.0 to function, since it's limited to Zen 3 and 500-series motherboards. Without it, performance with the new AMD cards may not be what it could be.
But you're right, it may not have the impact AMD advertised either - I guess we'll see once all the benchmarks come out soon enough.
