As I'm going through all the reviews, it is kind of making me want that rumored 15% price cut to be true for the Intel CPUs. The 9900K seems to meet my use case better. The 3700X seems like a good part though. Interesting that only it and the 3900X were sampled for review

Edit: I'm interested to see what a higher binned chip like the 3800X can do on WC. Might be worth a buy

I remember wanting to buy an x470 ITX board, but from research, using two M.2 drives made the GPU's PCI lane drop to 8x. Was this fixed with x570 or not? Can't find info about this anywhere.

I don't know about the lane usage on X570 but it seems you can get your Gen 4 NVME speeds on your X470 boards from the slot directly linked to the CPU, according to testing done by oc3d.net. Hopefully that works for B450 too. Makes X570 and even harder sell for me in the T1

On x470 using one m.2 SSD gave full speeds, the problem lies in using two. I don't want to use SATA cables ever again so I want two M.2 at full speeds which x470 does not give us. It is the only reason that I'm considering x570.

And I was hoping for getting the T1 before the end of August. Now its gonna be hard waiting when all the new CPU and GPU have arrived that I was waiting for.
Wonder when we will get a ETA

I would definitely like to get in on this case too.

Can transplant my current ghost S1 internals in, and then swap to 240 AIO + 3 slot GPU once an upgrade to the 2080 Ti comes out.

I hear ya. I have vague recollection of it being stated that your PCIE lanes wouldn't be cut with 4.0 on the new chipset but there has been so much information overload. My use case already has me going from two small SSDs to a 1 TB m.2 NVME Gen 3 so I'm already happy and it didn't stick with me. Having the second m.2 on the back of the board would concern me for temps in the T1, with the higher TDP on the X570

When I saw the video from optimum tech, he was quite clear: maybe not even this year.

There is no point in being so pushy. Just give them the time. At this point it even too early to give ETA.

I thought I remembered something like this from the architecture chart. Someone confirmed it in the ITX review thread

Indeed, with x570 you still have PCI-E x16 using two NVME drives.
The first drive uses CPU lanes and the second uses chipset lanes allowing the CPU to still retain x16 for the PCI-E slot.

Thats not correct, at the post on reddit wahaha himself (the guy called Flyer) wrote it would more likely be released as soon as august this year!

If you are a backer of the ghost you should know better, there has been 0 notice of timeline since.

Good things come to those who wait and a patient
Im an original backer of both Ncase, All Dan cases and ghost, so i know how it works.
But dont computer anything to the ghost that was my worst experience when it comes to Mew cases.
It had a very very bad launch and still is very bad in fulfilling their orders, any case launch cant be as bad as the ghost s1 when it comes to delays upon delays and creator/company going MIA and when the case finally arrived (Batch 1) numerous QC issues were found and for that Price tag there should not have been those issues!
