Clearly none of you have considered the fact that you could connect a USB 3.x host controller via PCIe...
Considering some X570 boards even does this...
Or worst case, a USB hub.
Also, USB 3.2 is clearly very confusing. USB 3.2 Gen 1 is USB 3.0 (5Gbps) in terms of speed, USB 3.2 Gen 2 is USB 3.1 (10Gbps) in terms of speed and USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 is the "new" thing that does 20Gbps. The Ryzen 3000 has four native 10Gbps ports and so far, the X570 chipset supports an additional eight 10Gbps ports. There's no support for 20Gbps ports unless a PCIe connected host controller is used.
The B-series chipsets so far from AMD supports two 10Gbps ports and two 5Gbps ports, why this new chipset would support any less, is beyond me.
As such, systems with the alleged B550 chipset should support at least six 10Gbps ports.

You're right of course. And what we're talking about is a leak which, in turn, could be wrong. But the leak itself, paints a poorer picture than I was expecting.
The timing, on the other hand, is perfect for me ;)
