IMO these are not worth 2x premium over PCIe3.0 drives. 99% of the people won't notice any difference.
Lol. You can say the same for SATA vs NVME.

Does it give more lanes for M.2 drives? My only issue with my X470 Taichi is that you can only run one PCIE-3 M.2 at full speed. The second slot will only run at PCIE-2 when both are filled.
That has nothing to do with the drive. Depends on how expensive the Mobo is.

If you currently have a X470, or X370, etc, then not really. But if you're just now building a new computer then the X570 is more future proofing. It also provides more PCI-E lanes, more sata, more USB, pretty much more of everything plus PCI-E 4. So it largely depends on the use case you'll use it for. If you need to have the extra lanes or sata or something then yeah, but if not then not worth the upgrade.
Still the same as x470 x8/x8 configuration for SLI. Defiantly like the the x570 having more gen2 usb 3 because I do lots of data transfer. However the Asus x470 I just bought does have 2 rear and 1 front gen2 Usb3 so that does me fine.

This, I was so hyped for the NVME drives but once I got one I didnt notice such a large difference and most times even at all like I did when I made the jump from spinning drives to SATA SSDs.

not that there aren't people who do benefit, just not in my personal use case.

Is there any purpose for X570 beyond these drives? If not then you're paying for the board and the drive premium for performance that you will not notice. Not an AMD hater by the way. Currently running a 2700X and trying to decide between 3700X and 3900X for next build.
I believe x570 is required for PBO 2.0 since PBO 1.0 was Threadripper-only. I could be wrong, though.

That one is actually debatable. I have a bunch of 7 year old corsair SATA3 SSDs that I use for testing purposes, and I actually do notice significant difference side by side in boot times compared to NVME. Having said that even those 7 year old corsairs are plentifully speedy for 90% of users. Newer SATA SSDs (made in the last 2 years) in my experience feel almost as fast as NVME drives, but then they cost almost as much as NVME drives so as long as your system has NVME support you might as well get NVME drive.

The heatsink is really important to have with pcie4 SSDs, right? I would totally jump on this deal, but I feel like I need the heatsink.
Only amd xy70 motherboards will run them at pcie 4.0 speeds. Check out the mother boards. Many have build in Heatsinks already over the nvme, some seem loosly tied to the active chipset cooler.

So depending on the board, some of the big nvme Heatsinks might be best removed.

I agree with this. When I switched from normal SSD to NVME, I didn't see that huge improvement except very few read/write heavy operations. Stick PCIe 3.0 at half the price.

Maybe, but it feels good to be the 1% for a change.
But it won't feel good when you quickly drop out of that 1%....

I would have gotten an X570 but did not like the extra power those things use even when not using PCIe 4.0 and the active fans that may be prone to failure and difficult to fix.

So I bought an "ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming AMD Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 ATX Motherboard".

I'm not paying all the extra money, using all the extra electricity, and generating all that extra heat for extra SSD performance that I'd hardly notice.

Future PCIe 4.0 chipsets will probably be cheaper and more energy efficient... and make more sense.

pretty sure iops is heavily dependent on the controller of the ssd. throwing the same controller that was on a 3.0 pcie on a 4.0 pcie bus probably won't affect it all that much. It's a new controller that's made to take advantage of the 4.0 pcie bus then maybe it might have some improvements, but as it's so very new, i doubt the first generation will come close to really big improvements.

Unless you're doing heavy editing or rendering no one will notice the difference between 4k read or 3k read speeds. If you're building a new system and just got X570 and love looking at benchmarks then sure get it. I would not upgrade to X570 for 1gb faster reads only. Also anyone using 3.0 pcie don't even bother paying double for this.

Just FYI, it's been confirmed in reviews that if you pair these with a ryzen 3000, even on an x470, you get pcie4 speeds.

For the price... probably not for those who don't want cutting edge...but the performance without having to buy the x570 is noice.

edit: sorry for providing facts.

X570s vrm might benefit the 3950x but that's about it.

I believe it was Hardware Unboxed who slapped a pcie4 nvme drive into an x470 with a ryzen 3000 and got pcie4 rated speeds. Something to look into.
