    You should do an article clarifying what features are available with the Ryzen 2000 series on x370. Hardocp says AMD confirmed precision boost 2 on x370 and I haven't checked my Taichi but a guy on Reddit found xfr2 settings in the bios for his 2700x.

    Is it really too much to ask for a chipset feature comparison table? At least vs. the X370?

    That + these links would've left me satisfied. Giving us just these links is only slightly less annoying than Anandtech posting a half-written Ryzen 2000 review.

    Bottom line, unless you are new to the Zen architecture, there is really no reason to buy or upgrade to a X470 motherboard. I upgraded to the 2700X from my 1700X and kept the same AsRock X370 motherboard. I can confirm that XFR2 and Precision Boost 2.0 work just fine with my X370 motherboard. Yes, I did have to update the BIOS and did so BEFORE I replaced the 1700X with the 2700X. Just the fact that with stock settings under a full load clock speeds are 500Mhz faster, and DDR4 memory speed was able to be increased from 2933 to 3200Mhz using 4 x 8GB DDR4 modules. Both of these improvements made the upgrade worth it to me. Turn on Gaming Mode through the use of AMD Ryzen Master Utility and CPU clock speeds increase dynamically up to 4.3Ghz! Needless to say, AMD has outdone themselves this time. I'm very happy with my decision to upgrade.

    Precision boost is built into the Ryzen chip itself. You wont notice any performance differences between the two motherboards. Tests have already been conducted. X370 yields the same performance numbers as x470.
