Absolutely not.Basically the only people who might benefit from these new fast drives are 4K video editors.
X570 is completely useless
... but it will sell. People want the best of the best, even if the "older" solution is just as good.
I for one can't wait for 3900X-es to get in stocks here in Europe (nobody has them already, all stores are pre-order or "10+ days delivery" and use it on my "old" X370 board (which I already updated to latest bios and it supports 3000 series just fine !).
I will upgrade it to X570 or X670 when it will actually make sense...
X570 is not useless, but PCi-e 4.0 to add in parts is rather pointless, the pci-e 4.0 to the chipset is really needed, also x470 outputs pci-e 2.0! 2.0!
also anything you plug in through the chipset is limited to x4 pci-e 3.0 total bandwidth shared, which is too little.
so if they had pci-e 3.0 out and 4.0 to cpu it'd be just as good imho, you can have 3 x nvme (2x pci-e 3.0 and 1x pci-e 4.0) without any i/o bottlenecks on a mainstream platform!
Please keep in mind the lowest end 1000 $ Intel HEDT cpu's was a requirement from the other side for that.
