I don’t deny this. I’m saying that there is little VALUE in offering PCIe slots that will be constrained at the interconnect if fully populated. At least in my opinion. I suppose there might be some fringe use cases where you’re not using the cards in question simultaneously. You are effectively paying for marketing hype that will never really deliver and both teams are guilty of this. I wouldn’t mind so much if the ratio was less than 2:1 (though 1:1 would be better… admittedly you might at as well incorporate everything into the SoC then? Remember north bridges?).
You’re also making the assumption that I don’t want to pay the price for more lanes. That I’m arguing I should get TR platforms lanes for AM4 prices. Never said that. Not to mention it’s unknown when a Zen2 version will be available?
I guess the TL:DR is It’s just frustrating when you can’t find the mix of features you need w/o buying a bunch that you don’t?
