    It does not. The X170KM-G with 11th gen Rocket Lake CPUs do though.

    The X170SM-G with 10th gen Comet Lake CPUs supports 3 NVME m.2 drives and 1 SATA m.2 drive.

    It's down to where the PCI-E lanes are wired from. The original x170 they were all from the chipset (Intel did not leave much of a choice) the new one there are 4x lanes from the CPU available.

    Which processor better for a gaming(primary) in 4k UHD and adobe premiere pro? i9 10900 or i9 11900k. For a longer period of time. I Think about 10 cores for a future games.

    Since we don't have official benchmarks for the i9 11900K yet, we can't definitively answer that question yet.

    Rumor has it that the performance difference is a wash. The 10900K wins sometimes in games, and the 11900K wins sometimes in games. The 11900K does have significantly higher minimum framerates (1% lows) however according to preliminary tests.

    Also depends on how they perform at the same power limit.

    Considering that Intel's Alder Lake CPUs are supposed to be released in September, I'd strongly recommend skipping Rocket Lake and waiting for Alder Lake.

    Yeah I know you can play the waiting game forever, but if you wait just 6 months, you'll get another 20% IPC increase plus a significant improvement in power efficiency. Normally you have to wait multiple years to get an increase like that.

    It will be very interesting to see how long it takes until the first laptop with this socket can be purchased.
    My guess is not earlier than 2022 so we would be looking at more of a 10+ month wait.

    We will see if people play ball with it or try and get some exemption.
