Recently Ghacks.net reported about almost unreal rumour regarding another 3 years of extended support for Windows 7. If news are true, consider this as a gift from above, because i can’t stand windows 10/11 abominations and Linux is just not ready for serious multimedia workstation workloads.

Authoritative member of Win-Raid community Canonkong confirmed that x570s chipset is fully operational under Windows 7. In terms of overall compatibility he recommends MSI boards. Please note that Asrock motherboards are not compatible with Windows 7 anymore because of notable BIOS changes. You’ll encounter A5/7E BSOD screens on random basis. The most distinctive feature of x570s chipset compared to x570 is absence of active cooling. Also it will support upcoming Ryzen 5950XT CPU with larger 192Mb L3 v-cache.
